    Hello Nicolocarlo,

    1. no build up of ice around the coil, I cleaned a little bit the dust with the vacuum cleaner.

    2. fan runs properly and quite often, but not permanently; it sometimes shuts off. Not sure why/when!

    3.condensor/motor is warm and zooming and does not show any leaks in that area at all.

    4.the frig has been very noisy for the last 2 years, but not anymore now? That noise was mainly coming from the back of the refrigerator side around mid height behind the illuminated panel at the inside.

    Remarks:

    temperature down under in the frig. is coldest (probably because it comes from the freezer which works fine ). But in the top I mesure 20+ C with a seperate temp. meter.

    Also from time to time (not often enough!) the temperature on the display goes fairly quickly down from 20 to 7Ce, but unfortunately only for a short period of a few minutes. I have no idea why?

    Please help again,

    Felix

Hi, Sounds like you have most everything. Have you removed the rear panel inside the freezer section? Removing this panel will let you see if there is frost building up on the evaporator coil which will stop air flow to the fresh food side. If the coil is plugged up with frost, we need to narrow down the defrost issue. If the coil has some frost but not totaly getting frost on every coil (a thin layer of frost), then it is possible the compressor is getting weak and not pumpping the coolent like it should. The evaporator fan motor you had mentioned is also behind the rear panel.
Please let me know if this helps you aor if I can assist you further.

Thanks,
Vic

The cold air which cools down the entire fridge comes from the freezer. Check first the coil at the freezer at its back if there is build up of ice. If there is, have the freezer unplugged and have the ice melt. Clean the fridge while doing the process. Most likely that the thermistor may have been frozen. If so it may think that the rest of the fridge is at the target temperature. The ice maker will not be affected since it the ice temperature is directly connected from the freezer. If your model has a fan, check if it is working and properly circulating air. If it does not, it could be a loose wire or the fan may be faulty. If all checks OK you may want to check the condenser at the back checked for leaks and have the freon pressure checked.

Hi. We moved to a house with an integrated Teka A-FC1359 Fridge/Freezer. It was working fine. We switched it off 3 months ago. Now we've swithched it back on but it's not working.


It can be issue with faulty compressor capacitor.From main power outlet the power goes to capacitor beside compressor and from there power goes to compressor motor,then after that all unit works.May be that capacitor got shorted or loose from its actual connection.Or other possibility is faulty power wire of refrigerator.Get the wire checked with continuity tester to confirm its not broken in between.

If the frost build up is on the back panel of the freezer then it has a defrost problem which causes a no cool situation. Let me know more about this frost buildup and what you have done.
