Question about Refrigerators

Zanussi ZFC 45/30 SS is hot at front between the doors..

Hi,

we have an old(ish) zanussi ZFC 45/30 SS fridge freezer (fridge and freezer are side by side and the whole thing sits under the kitchen worktop) which was installed in the kitchen when we bought the house...

recently we have noticed that the front dividing strip between the fridge and freezer is hot (not quite hot enough to burn), the fridge and freezer seem to be working ok...

is this normal? is there a way to fix it? moving the whole thing out a little from the wall seems to have helped a bit

This is normal. This is a defroster to keep moisture from condensation from freezing the doors shut.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Zanussi SS fridge freezer not yet 2 years old, first freezer door started to rust on lower front edges and slightly on front panel - replaced no problem by local shop. That door is now rusting in same...


NO fun... Looks like you will need a new door again soon ~ no matter what.

I would buy a new door, BUT BEFORE installation... I would apply many coats of a decent clear lacquer paint first... apply on all of the bottom of the door and cover at least 10 inches up.

Also coat the bottom and inside of the door at least 6" up... the door sides too...

Be sure to allow each layer to dry thoroughly.

Use a 1" blue masking tape to keep your paint line straight and true. Lay the door down flat and face-up to do your work...

This measure should add years of service to your door... At the first sign of any rust ~ you know what to do.

As for Zanussi, I doubt if you could muster enough owners to pursue any legal actions... sorry.
