SOURCE: Zanussi fridge freezer - fridge not working

The defrost cycle is not happening like it should, that's what causes the block of ice (and poor air flow). If you have all that defrosted look at the defrost bi-metal, it usually is a small round disk with a couple wires coming out of it and it's clipped on the coils. When it's cold enough, it passes electricity to the heat elements, when it gets hot enough it "opens" and kills power to the heat elements. If that is bad (swollen cracked or bloated) and not passing electricity to the elements that's the problem. Another item would be the defrost timer itself, if it doesn't work (no clock motor turning) then it will never go into defrost. And the last and usually least expected failure would be the heat element themselves not working

SOURCE: Leak!

Hi as well,

With no other source of water for the leak, this has to be your defrost water, and it does sound like the drain to the evaporator pan is clogged.

The pan will be underneath the unit -- should be a panel you can remove along the bottom edge to access the pan.

If you trace the drain from the bottom of the unit back into the fridge, you can find where the water is supposed to drain into the pan. This is apparently clogged.

SOURCE: Freezer leaking on Kitchen Floor

the pipe which is located at the back of the fridge/ freezer may be blocked or hanging outside of the designated collection chamber designed for this purpose. Unplug from the mains and pull the appliance away from the wall so you can see and get to the back of it. At the back of it you will see a pipe coming out from the bottom of the cooling fins and will go down and the end of it will be sitting inside a shallow plastic collection unit - not covered but open. Itusually is sitting on top of the condenser unit. (this is a large sealed metal structure whic has pipes coming out of it and is the largest item in that area at the back bottom end of appliance). If there is some liquid in it then either move the pipe end into the dry area or emty it out. Sometimes there isnt a collection chamber but the pipe just drips onto the condenser and evaporates - usually on self defrosting certain brand named products but dont know much about that. Use a pipe cleaner to clear out the pipes from inside the fridge out toward the back using that pipe. the drainage hole is inside the fridge at the back and may have some sort of cover or plug in it. remove that and clean it and use the wire or pipe cleaner to shove doen the hold and clear the entrance and exit. Test pipe functionability by pouring a small ammount of water down the drain hole and see it coming out of the back via pipe. If still leaking make sure the vent areas in the back of fridge and freezr are not covered expecially in the self defrosting models. basically dont overload the fridge or freezer coz this causes blocked vents, difficulty derfosting on self defrosters, water builds up and gets out via the tube as it should, but more water than can be evaporated will cause puddles on the floor

Water collecting inside refrigerator


At the back is a little channel with a hole in that drains to the outside of the fridge. Remove the drawers and shelf and blow through the hole with a drinking straw.

I have a zanussi ZI 920/9K and the fridge has water under the salad drawer every day but the drain hole is not blocked - what else might it be?


two solutions
1...a door seal leak
2...you are puting food in that is warm or not covered and its the condensation from these that collects on the shinny surface of the salad drawer.....
remember,every time you open the door warm air from the kitchen replaces the cold air inside the fridge,it does not dry the air like a dehumidifier....
hence water droplets gather.....

Everything freezes in bottom of refrigerator


Check that all seals are completely sealed, especially the freezer door. If the freezer door leaks, the bottom of fridge will constantly be cold. Also, check the flap in the inside back. It controls the air between freezer and fridge. It may be putting more air flow to fridge rather than freezer. The cold air will sink low and keep the drawer are colder.
