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: Trips out the mains fuse.

must be an earth fault within the machine. suspect a burned out wire or switch. possibly carbon dust within the motor. take the top off the machine & have a look at the wireing loom.

SWITCH THE POWER OFF FIRST

SOURCE: LG WASHING MACHINE WM14225FD

My machine would not switch on this morning, no beeps or lights, I traced it to a small fuse on the main circuit board. you get to the board by disconecting from the mains, removing 2 crosshead screws at the back of the machine and lifting the top of the machine off ( once screws out, slide top of machine back about 1cm and then it just lifts off. You can now see the main circuit board, behind the control panel on front of machine. the fuse is hard to see and is solderd to the board on the lower left side, I solderd onto both ends of the fuseand replaced with a 10 amp HRC fuse, I still need to find the correct fuse rating, this worked for my machine.
However, and its a big however, If the 13amp fuse in youre plug blew and the trip on youre consumer unit, then I would imagine something big (pulling a large current) has gone down in youre machine to cause all these to blow, anyway hope this helps, Robin.

SOURCE: 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.

Find out why my freezer is shorting


Is your FREEZER is plugged into a wall socket which is protected by an EARTH LEAKAGE UNIT or RCD [Residual Current Device] ???
Most manufacturers advise NOT to have this type of appliance connected through an RCD as the start load required when the COMPRESSOR "kicks in" is quite large [especially in larger fridge/freezer units] AND will quite often TRIP your RCD. These appliances are better connected to a separate electrical circuit if at all possible and not protected by an RCD.

Re: LG lfd22860 refrigerator. Breaker tripped during the night, now fridge will not turn back on. Is there a reset switch or something?


No, there is a built in fuse that has failed and the whole board has to be replaced. Behind the refrigerator is rectangular panel where the control board is located. Not sure of the part number because of different model variations.
Hope this helps.

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.

Bulbs and bottom pcb blew, replaced but still not working


the start and run capacitors of the compressor can go short circuit and cause a big spike that can blow the bulbs, trip fuse etc. Inspect the capacitors for splits etc, you may well find that the start cap has blown and so there will not be enough current to get the compressor running.
