IF IT IS A AMONIA FRIDGE AND WAS NOT USED FOR A LONG TIME THE AMONIA CRISTALISES INSIDE THE UNIT. UNPLUG THE FRIDGE AND TURN IT UPSDEDOWN FOR A DAY OR TWO AND THEN PLUG IT INTO THE POWER AGAIN. SURELY IT WILL WORK FINE AGAIN.

Miele Fridge Freezer not getting cold


Power off and remove all fluff under the fridge.
Compressor can be hot but not too hot. Are the settings ok for desired level cold. Is the fridge too heavily loaded? Try now.

My freezer frosted over everything because the door was not shut tight and now it will not clear.


take out all the food out of the freezer,unplug the fridge and get a hair dryer and start melting out all the ice in the freezer,then blow the hot air into the vent holes on the back wall until you don't see any more water dripping down through the slots in the back wall.turn the machine back on,open the fridge door after around 5 or 10 minutes and if you feel cold air blowing into the fridge you fixed the problem,if you don't feel cold air keep hitting the inside back wall with the hair dryer and keep blowing the hot air into the holes in the back wall.all that it does is the freezer gets cold and there's a fan behind the back wall in the freezer,the fan blows the cold air into the fridge side,if the air ducts are frozen the air can't circulate into the fridge section so you have to melt the ice out so the cold air can blow from the freezer to the fridge.good luck,if you have another fridge remove the food and unplug it and leave the doors open for a day and it will melt out.good luck

Hi,
This is a problem with the 'Motor Run Capacitor'

What you suggest is exactly what happens when this part fails.

Unplug - and look carefully around the connections to the compressor - there should be a cylinder with 2 connections on it. Read what value it says (like 250V 50pf) - and order a replacement from a parts store.

Fit it any way round - it doesnt matter.

plug back in and should work 100%

Cost about - $5

Have you tried running it without the fan? I know it sounds funny but it has to get hot (outside the fridge) to get cold inside. Shut fan off and see what happens. Also, keep in mind the more items you put in it that are already cold, or frozen, the faster it will cool inside the fridge. Also take a look up the back of the fridge, with outside cover off to make sure no big wasp nests or similar up there. May need to remove cover at roof and look down if you can't see too good from back of fridge vent.

remove the fridge from caravan, now turn upside down and leave for as long as possible. what this does is get rid of any air locks in the gas. once left for a month or too turn back and leave for a day to setal and refit to caravan.this should solve your problem, it has been tried and tested on our caravan and worked. (This will not work on a domestic house fridge because they work on a different system)

Refrigerator doesnt get cold enough


If you remove the back panel on the inside of the cabinet then you would be able to check the evaporator coil (cold bit) and see if it is frozen up. If it is then defrost the system and see if you have any improvement. All the things you have pointed out over the compressor is normal, they do run incredibly hot. If you have got the freezer on a very cold setting I would suggest bringing both setpoints to a mid range setting. Check the temp in the fridge by measuring liquid temp as air temp is prone to fluctuate more. If you still have a concern I would suggest contacting a fridge guy to assist you. Hope this is of some if not limited help.

Outer back and side of fridge is very hot


Turn it off. If you keep running it, it will die completely fairly soon. Please feel free to jump to the end if you don't want a fridge science lecture - it might help you figure out the problem though. When a fridge/freezer runs, the condenser (all the tubes at the back) will get warm-hot. That is where the heat goes from inside the fridge. First thing to check; is there excessive heat to remove from the fridge/freezer? Check the door seals are ok - cold air falling out of a bad door seal can make a fridge both cool and warm a room at the same time - which obviously leads to problems Check that the lights inside actually go off when you close the door by pressing the switch that the door usually presses when it shuts, and checking that the door will press the switch as far as it needs to go. Second thing; Check that there is adequate ventilation at the back - remember the ideal situation technically for a fridge is to have the bit at the back outside the house in the shade like an air-con unit. pull the fridge a bit more away from the wall and try blowing a fan onto it. Clean gently with a soft brush any dust etc that is on all the tubes at the back - it can cause an insulating coat to form. If the dust is sticky and hard to shift, then gently use a soft paintbrush and warm soapy water. Third thing; When the amount of refrigerant gas in a fridge system is getting low (they all leak a tiny bit all the time - even without any fault) two main things happen: The fridge gas has a lubricant mixed in with it that keeps the inside parts of the system oiled. when the gas is low, so is the oil and you get the same effect as running a car with no oil - runs hot, then dies. The low gas has an effect inside and outside the fridge - inside, near where the gas first enters the evaporator (the plate in the fridge that gets cold) it will get extra cold. the compressed refrigerant evaporates too quickly - easy way to explain is that there is nothing in front of it in the queue so it runs through too quick. the same thing happens in reverse when the gas goes into the condenser at the back, the gas condenses too quickly making the back very hot. I think, from what you say, that low gas is the problem. Although it is not too complicated, it is illegal for you to do it yourself in most places for environmental and safety reasons - get any fridge repair guy and he can do it and check for leaks at the same time. Hope this helps, and is in time to save your fridge :)
