Question about Baumatic Upright Freezer BV12A
I have a built in Baumatic freezer, it's been working fine for about 9 months but it has now stopped cooling. i've turned up the thermostat, switched it off and on and nothing has worked - how would i check if the seal is ok and could this be another problem?
ZoeM, I am thinking freeze up from humid conditions, too much 'window shopping' or bad door gasket (is that the seal of which you speak?). If the unit is only 9 months old...it has a full warranty. Don't do anything to it beyond what is described here.
Defrost the unit completely. If you can get warm air to the coils, do so. If not, leave it off and open for 2 days to completely defrost.
To check most door gaskets: first, make sure the gasket and its mating surface are both clean and visually undamaged. Next, test by simply closing the door on a piece of paper...use a strip about 2-3 inches wide and long enough to go inside the unit that you can slide across the gasket/frame surface. Close the door with the strip near any suspect areas. You should not be able to pull the strip out easily. Replace any damaged gaskets.
