You may find the blast chiller fan has an issue
perhaps its failed... causing only the bottom of the freezer to go frozen or worse...
its inside the panel at the back of the freezer unit 6 screws and perhaps some plastic caps on them
the plastic caps may be the fixings so take them out carefully
you can take the panel off check its not jammed with ice and the blade moves/spins freely
if its not moving mostly its gone...
or hard to move the vanes then its sized up bearings
if you cant hear it wiring anyway..

try to leave the freezer etc off for several days with the door open
can take like 10 days to fully clear out the ice from inside tubes etc {not good}
inside the back of fridge freezers apart from the fan
is a fast heat element for frost free and fast defrost and freeze

so all must work and be clean

at the base of the back unit is a V shaped channel that takes away the water from the freezer blast unit

so if the tube at the bottom of the V shape inside the back cover gets blocked
water builds up and it will never defrost properly for less than 5 or 6 days then freeze up fast

as the water sits in the back cover
to solve it you need to
take the 6 screws out the freezer back plate
ease it off and then clean out and fully defrost the freezer unit
watch out for any sensors mounted to this freezer panel
and the V channels in the fridge and freezer with pipe cleaner brushes from the local home brew shop and salt
and add some salt too the V channels and pipes

they lead to the evaporator tray mounted above the warm compressor so as to get rid of water from iside

but they only work till too much ice builds up
and your defrost ritual goes like past 3 months or 6 months for a 3 star freezer

so you need to do the above

then test again

make sure of good clearance and clean the back out 4 " off the wall

sometimes !! there is a thermal fuse on the heating element of the freezer inside the back panel unit of upright freezers
the scenario is the fan goes the heating element overheats the thermal fuse goes
and the freezer reports an error
you may find you have to replace the fan and thermal fuse ...

and a really good clean of the V channel and pipes and evaporator
and move it off the wall

hey presto
so some food for thought...

most often just a clean
and perhaps a new fan
most often it just gums up the tubes and defrost not too often
then the fan jams
perhaps burns

if you find you cant find the exact fan

just use a universal fan type from ebay etc
about a 10 er or less and do some metal work too fit it
ive done this with over 10 units
and now they work magic
usually its the fan that fails and an ice monster grows
and the freezer packs in
and perhaps the heating fuse goes

so ... this is the issue for sure

On a Samsung Refrigerator model , press and hold both "Power Freeze" and "Power Cool" buttons simultaneously until chimes sound. This will reset the flashing 13 E code.

We have a Samsung RS2534WW Refrigerator and this morning the freezer stopped working.


This is what the manual says:
The refrigerator does not work at all or it does not
chill sufficiently

Check that the power plug is properly connected.

Is the temperature control on the display panel set to
the correct temperature? Try setting it to a lower tem-

Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located near a
heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall?

I'm adding a link to the manual. Hopefully, it will help :)

Dear Sir, I have Unplugged the power,cleaned the freezer, plugged back the power, now control panel flashing 33 E and non of the buttons is functioning. How to fix it Thanks

What brand and model washer do you have? The E33 error could be a problem with the low-water level pressure switch. On some Zanussi washers, the problem could be at the control circuit board. You'll need to check the wiring (resistance). A visual inspection might reveal soot or another sign of a failed component.

Please add a comment with more information to get specific diagnostic and part suggestions.

My Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 25326432100 flashed "ER."

My freezer was purchased in February, 2004. It is a self defrosting freezer but ice has started forming along the bottom shelf and back wall. Also, after cleaning the freezer the other day it has stopped clycing. The freezer will stop running only if I turn it down to the #1 setting and then it will not come back on. If I turn it up to a higher setting the compressor will not stop running. It ran for over 24 hours and would not cycle unless I turned it off or set it at the #1 setting. When I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall, there was a green water spot the size of a dinner plate underneath the freezer. Help!! Very Unhappy this freezer is only 6 years old. S in Phila.

I have a frigidaire upright frost free freezer model number is FFU2065FW3 I put in a new electronic temperature control Board and when I plugged the freezer back in, the control board was flashing "E" and...

OK, this is a failed controller board, any E4* is Power supply & Controller Board, probably caused by a power spike.You need to get the unit looked at to see if it is able to be repaired, and if parts are available. If you wish to try and repair this yourself, you must get a service manual, to do so, and to be able to order parts.

Washer stuck

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

Fedders window model A6Y12F2B "New Unit",,only 10 days in use! Just stopped working No Power To Master Panel Air Conditioner Not Working Fuse Panel/Breaker ok,Outlet ok,,power to plug...

Take it back to the store. Manufacture defect if it died after only 10 days. Attempting repair or disassembly will probably void warranty.
