Could be a defrost problem,low refrigerant, dirty condencer coil if it is under frig, Or electronic sensor failure. compressor could have valve problem. Too many things to go wrong to pin point problem. If you can see the bigger of the two tubes going to the compressor and it is frosted up then its insde air flow problem more than likely a defrost problem. If you can get to the evaporator coil inside and see if it is froze up or not will tell a lot. If it is and you can thaw it out and it works ok for a day or so then it is a defrost problem. this will require a tech to come out and decide what the cause is . Your warranty may cover most of the cost.

We have a Amana BR18 Easy Reach bottom freezer. The fridge is turned up all the way, barely keeping food cold. The freezer is not freezing anything (ice, etc.). The freezer is still blowing cool air, but...


Low refrigerant assuming the compressor is always running and not being shut down by the thermostat.

You can hook up an ammeter to the unit to see if the current consumption is below spec, another sign of low gas situation since the motor is not working as hard as under normal conditions.

The freezer compartment of my daewoo FRN-U20DA is not cold enough and the ice is melting. The fan does not come on and there is no fault indicated on the display panel.


when the fan is not working. you cannot expect an ice cause the fan is to drive the cold to become an ice and to maintain the coldness.

It has seperate cooling circuits as you describe the problem can be a leak of refrigerant in the freezer circuit.if there is no heating up in the freezer condensing coil.It has to be check for the leakage.

BEKO Frost free freezer not as cold as it should be!


Sorry I don't have a solution for you, however would like to know if you found out what was wrong. I have an identical problem with my Beko fridge/freezer. It's only 14 months old and the freezer just wont freeze. I've turn it off for 24 hour and let it defrost completely (even had the panel off to make sure there was no ice left). I've turned it back on again and it still wont freeze. Everything seems ok, ie fan blowing, motor running etc. I really am beginning to regret buying Beko. thanks

No longer freezes


The evaporator fan in the back of the freezer blows over the cooling coils. Those coils are typically hidden from view behind a panel.

The problem you describe would lead me to suspect that the coils are iced over. That is why there is some cold, but not enough. The fan is blowing over a block of ice. An overfilled freezer is another possibility.

Iced over coils may be the result of a malfunctioning defrost system, a plugged drain tube, a poor seal on the door seals to the cabinet resulting in a lot of moist air entering the freezer (or fridge) or the refrigerant level is under pressure (needs more refrigerant added).

Most refrigerators never need refrigerant added, but after 25 years, it could be that yours does. However, it can only be done by a pro, and it probably isn't worth investing that kind of money in such an old fridge.

I recommend you start by unplugging the fridge and inspecting the coils inside the freezer. If they aren't iced over, then the door seals may be still be the problem by letting in warm air.
