ZANUSSI ZENB2925 FRIDGE FREEZER NOT COOLING

Hi...we bought a second hand zanussi ZEN2925 fridge freezer which the previous owner said was in full working order but was in storage so we did not see it working. When we brought it home we left it switched off for 24 hours. When it's switched it makes all the noises and you can feel the cold air coming in the freezer compartment, the light comes on etc but the fridge and the freezer does not cool. The temperature setting is set to max even tried it at lower setting.

So we switched it off and left it standing for a week in case it needed to 'settle' down.

We have switched it on again but still same problem. When it's switched on it makes the right noises but does not cool.

Anyone what the problem could be? Thanks

SOURCE: zanussi fridge compartment has stopped cooling but freezer is ok

How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .

OR.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

I bought a Zanussi ZF4 fridge/freezer second hand about two weeks ago. When I installed it I made sure that it was left to stand for 12 hours before turning on and that it was cleaned thoroughly. The unit...


It is possible that it is the thermostat, and if not as you hear the compressor starting shortly then stopping, and redoing that many times.
Your compressor is certainly out of order and must be replaced by a professional, that means to dessolder the current compressor, and replace it with the new one, and change the gas.
So major intervention and at least 2 hours of work.
In the end, you will have a new heart for this great fridge.

Zanussi fridge freezer not cooling


no, its probably weak capacitors which provide power to switch the relay. Take the control board out and ask a friendly TV repair tech to change the capacitors

Fridge on Fridge freezer not working


Ok there is a drain pan under the evap. coil under the fan that may be clogged and full of ice there is a 3/4" hole the water drains out of that needs cleared if there is a puddle of ice over it , the ice will also effect the airflow traveling down the duct to the fresh food section of the unit.
If there is no ice puddle at the bottom of the refrigerator then make sure the unit is cooling well by making sure it has been running for 10 min. or so and checking the coil in the freezer , it should have a small layer of frost on it showing its getting cold the whole way through it. Let me know how this works.

Zanussi fridge freezer


sounds like the freezer evaporator has iced /frosted up and you will not get cold airflow through it. try a 24 hour defrost to clear it. then check fridge cooling.
