SOURCE: BEKO AB910 Frost Free Fridge/Freezer Ice build up

I have the same model + problem. You should not need to defrost this model manually if it's working correctly, but the ice build up you describe is probably due to a blocked pipe in the auto-defrost system at the back. You need to defrost properly to prevent recurrence.

Behind the upper freezer drawer there's an aluminium tray behind a plastic grille. Every few days this tray warms up to melt any accumulated ice behind this plastic grille (full height of the freezer). A pipe should take the meltwater down to a plastic tray below (pipe + plastic tray are visible if you take the lower panel off the back). Your problem is too much ice blocking that pipe: the heater can't cope and it doesn't melt, so the ice 'cascades' down the back behind the bottom drawer.

When you manually defrost, you must ensure that this pipe is clear, otherwise the auto-defrost won't work, and you may have to defrost manually again within days.

I have found that the best way to defrost the pipe is to remove the lower back panel, disconnect the corrugated flexible plastic pipe from the stub that comes from the bottom of the freezer, + pump steam into the stub (gently) using a hand-held steamer (with tube + nozzle). You don't have to empty the freezer or move your food as the door stays closed, and no steam gets into the freezer until the pipe is unblocked. Be sure to unplug the freezer before taking the back off! [There is a fan in this area that could start up without warning]

Check how much of the pipe is blocked by gentle probing with a pencil: the aluminium tray is about 105mm above the bottom of the stub. This measurement is important…

When the pipe is clear, there may still be too much ice in the aluminium tray above (not sure how much is 'too much') if you only created a narrow 'chimney' though the block of ice (likely to get blocked again). You need to widen that chimney by melting more of the ice in the aluminium tray. I use a simple steam nozzle made from an old-fashioned Bic pen with a couple of 1mm holes drilled just below the coloured bung at the end. This directs steam onto the walls of the 'chimney' rather than upwards.

There's no point steaming the walls of the plastic 'stub' pipe, so only use the home-made nozzle when your probe reaches 105mm (i.e. when you have melted all the ice in the plastic stub tube but before your 'chimney' has broken through the block of ice in the aluminium tray). If you judge this right, you'll melt almost all of the ice under a still-frozen top surface: no steam will get into the freezer and your food will stay frozen. With a probe it will be clear when you've broken through the top surface of the ice. When you have done so, it's time to look inside the freezer to see how well you have cleared the aluminium tray.

It's perfectly feasible to get all this done in 30 minutes.

Don't forget to replace the corrugated plastic pipe + valve at the bottom. It stops humid air from going into the freezer and icing up in exactly the area we've just been defrosting.

Take a lot of care with steam jets as they can burn you badly. You should check a first aid website so you know what to do BEFORE it happens.

Some of these tips may be helpful: (1) run the freezer at -18 degrees (the 'warmest' setting) so it's not working so hard. (2) Leave a big gap (>100mm) between the back of the freezer and the wall. (3) Clean the matrix of delicate tubes to the left of the fan whilst you have the back off [a small bottle brush is ideal; remove the fan for better access]. (4) Put something between the middle of the freezer and the wall to prevent the warm air that's being blown out behind the fridge from being sucked into the air intake behind the freezer (there is a baffle built in underneath, but nothing behind. (5) Mount the fan on spacers (with longer screws) so that it's closer to the heat exchanger… this means that a larger area of grille can act as an air intake. (6) Raise the unit off the floor a little to free up the air intake path beneath the freezer.

Apparently there is a problem with Beko refrigeration manufactured between 2000/2006. Please confirm model number in question.


From Beko:-

"The BEKO frost free fridge freezer models affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006. These have a serial number that begins with either 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05 or 06. and this information can be found on a label inside the fridge. Beko is making a free of charge modification to all affected models, this modification takes approximately 30mins.

Other Beko branded models and all Beko frost free fridge freezers manufactured after this date are unaffected.

Affected model numbers:

    • CA 5411 FFS/FFW/FFX
    • CA 7014 FFX
    • CA 7015 FFW/FFS/FFX
    • CDA 539 FS/FW/FX
    • CDA 543 FS/FW/FX
    • CDA 645 FW
    • CDA 647 FS/FW
    • CDA 648 FS/FW
    • CDA 653 FS/FW/FX
    • CDA 659 FS
    • CDA 751 FS/FX
    • CDA 752 FS/FW/FX
    • CS 460 FF/FFS/FFW/FFSD
    • CS 461 FFW/FFS
    • CSA 4706 FFX
    • CSB 4606 FFSD/FFS/FFW"

If you find that your model is listed above and is in the correct model year range then you need to click here for further guidance. There is also a freephone number, but it's swamped by callers. Even if you get through you will receive exactly the same advice as you would from the website links.

My frost free fridge freezer has stopped working(beko) the fan inside the freezer is consyantly on the food in the freezer has defrosted and the element at the back is usually hot and now its cold


Please checck to see if your thermostat lines are in order or if some of the connecting wires are damaged bby frost. First of all switch off the fridge and allow all frost to clear. then check for the fan circuit, the auto defrost timer circuit. Now after few hours switch on the fridge. Check to see if the compressor is running the back side is getting warm and the freezer is cooling. If not check if the compressor is pumping well or being short of gas-- get help -. If not the timer could be the culprit as after the cooling takes place the fridge does not defrost. Check this out and the fault is confirmed if your fridge works fine now. Hope you try. Good day

BEKO Frost free freezer not as cold as it should be!


Sorry I don't have a solution for you, however would like to know if you found out what was wrong. I have an identical problem with my Beko fridge/freezer. It's only 14 months old and the freezer just wont freeze. I've turn it off for 24 hour and let it defrost completely (even had the panel off to make sure there was no ice left). I've turned it back on again and it still wont freeze. Everything seems ok, ie fan blowing, motor running etc. I really am beginning to regret buying Beko. thanks

Freezer frosting up all the time


Door seal isn't the problem. Freezer heater is. Start a new chat and make it a premium and I can tell you what to look for. By the way, you posted a refrigerator problem in dishwashers. Might want to change that too. If this is helpful, please post as such. TY
