    Hi Ginko!

    Many thanks for your prompt reply, it is appreciated.

    Ginko, I am very sorry but I cannot open your reply. I keep getting a message stating that I cannot view your PDF file unless I have at least Adobe Acrobat/Reader 8 or 9 with which to view it through a Web Browser. I have Adobe Reader 9 on my computer but I do not know how to circumnavigate the problem.

    I also have PDF Creator installed which I use predominently for PDF Files.

    Any suggestions?

    or could you try another method to get thru to me, say send the PDF by Email instead of Web Browser?

    Apologies,

    Brian

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Before you begin to replace your defrost thermostat, makesure you disconnect the appliance's power supply. The easiest way to do this isto unplug the unit from the wall. Alternatively, you could trip the appropriateswitch in the circuit breaker panel, or you could remove the appropriate fusefrom your home's fuse box.

Please check your refrigerator's defrost thermostat in this picture--

I would like to receive - e019c70.gif


Click on the image to zoom in. It is located under the floor of the unit. The thermostat is wired in series with the defrost heater, and when thethermostat opens, the heater shuts off.

The cover plate over the coils needs to be removed. Now remove the freezer door, and then the screws so that each side of outer fridgecover is detached. This will to enable cover plate to slide out. (Outer walls have to be pried out alittle). Defrost thermostat is located behind coils.

Also check the Defrost Timer which is located at bottom offridge frame next to compressor. A couple of screws and unplug and plug in new part. There are two wires leading from the thermostat. They areattached to terminals with slip-on connectors. Gently pull on the connectors torelease the wires from the terminals. You may need to use needle nosed pliersto help you. Do not pull on the wires themselves.




Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

This fridges have an electronic temperature control instead of a thermostat. They have a set of thermic sensor in icemaker or water container. They also have a temperature sensor in the defrost system, doing the same as the usual defrost thermostat.

This model should be the same , or very similar to yours.

Fisher Paykel RF175WDRX1. Why does the fridge beep when I open it?


check the thermostat setting for the compartment
it may not be set low enough so the alarm goes off when the compartment temperature reaches or exceeds that setting
some fridges have a system whereby if the door is open too long then it notifies the user to close the door

How to I change handing of fisher & paykel 2 door fridge


Hello friend
Not your machine but this is how it is done for standard Fridges , They are all similar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEcPVbOjdUE



Extract From the fisher & paykel website user guide ....it seems to be all about the handles.
http://www.fisherpaykel.com/vault/pdfs//pdf_usecares/5339_NZ_AU_ActiveSmart__HR.pdf
Door conversion
If you need to hinge your door on the opposite side we recommend that you call your local
Fisher & Paykel Authorised Repairer or Dealer to make this conversion.
ActiveSmart refrigerator models with silver handles need to be ordered at the point of purchase either with left or right opening doors and can not be interchanged.
All other models need to have an appropriate conversion kit for that model refrigerator.
The kit is available from your Fisher & Paykel Authorised Repairer or Dealer. Full instructions are
included in the conversion kit.
This does not apply to French door mode

How can I find out the part number for a bearing on my fisher & paykel dryer?


Your model number might be DG62T27GW2.
You can get a user manual from this site.
http://www.ajmadison.com/ajmadison/itemdocs/3969_USA_EN_Smartload_Dryer_UC.pdf

To find the part numbers from Fisher and Paykel parts catalogue you need the serial number or product number of the dryer. This should be on a sticker on the inside of the lid. Once you find it go to this site and download a parts manual.
