Zanussi Zx99/5SI fridge not chilling freezer Frozen over

Zanussi Zx99/5SI fridge Freezer
The freezer element was frozen solid so something wrong with auto defrost cycle.

I know it can be the main PCB, Heater element or a sensor.

Before I go spending circa £100 on a main board does anyone know what sort of Omhs I should get across the defrost heater element? also where and how can I test the sensor.

Is the timer in the Main PCB

Thanks for advice

Tell you what, first do a good 12 hour defrost and restart. Chances are you left the door ajar accidentally. (even though you say you never,) Most of the time there is the issue. If it continues after that, let me know and ill go through the defrost procedure (the cheap way)..

I have a GE GTS 221C fridge/freezer. The fridge is working fine. All of a sudden, the freezer is not freezing. Just cold, but not enough to keep food frozen. The fan on the freezer is working.


remove the rear cover inside the freezer if it has a lot of frost on it,then the evaporator coil is frozen up and you cant blow cold air over or thru a solid block of ice,defrost it,then check the defrost heating element,defrost thermostat and timer or defrost circuitry for no power or defective components,you can use a hand held hair dryer to defrost it quicker

Hotpiont ffm90 fridge not chilling


hi if the freezer appears to work and the fridge if warm,the problem is that the freezer is over frozen and blocking the vents which send cold air into the fridge when required,and the noise is the fan hitting the the ice build up,defrost (switch off)your applinace for at least 36 hours then switch back on,you will then find after the freezer reaches -12 the fridge will then start to go cold.

Frozen vents from freezer to fridge


you most likely have a defrost problem.or a clogged drain.you need to check your defrost heater defrost timer and thermostat.if ice is formed over drain then you can unclog drain with hot water.you will see when it is unclogged,water will run down drain without running over into bottom of freezer.

The coils are frozen solid in freezer behind back wall


frozen coils not always means freon problem. low air flow across evaporator coils could cause freeze up. if door is opened and closed an abnormal amount could cause a freeze up or even something pushed up against the air intake in the refridgerator. i would thaw it out completely and restart it, theres a chance it was nothing major. good luck
