Question about Freezers

1 Answer


Hi I have a BEKO fridge Frezer just over 1 year old. has been working very well so far. noticed tonight it has gone quiet. internal fridge light still working, but even with thermostat dial turned up can hear no compressor running. It is full of food for Christmas so do not want to leave it too long. Is there an automatic defrost cycle it could have gone into. Is there any way of easily finding out if it is working.??

The best way is open freezer door wait 30 seconds then shut if the door pulls shut further then machine is working if not not working.

Thanks J

My ice maker does not work

Hi there one of the biggest reasons for not getting cold which will affect the ice maker also is -- low or no air flow.
2 areas - 1) inside the freezer section are vents and they should have some clear areas (our freezer often gets crammed full of stuff)
2) under and behind the fridge is a dust bunny breeding area - pull the fridge out and get as much dust and stuff off the coils as possible (I use a vacuum and a small paint brush). The coils transfer the heat out of the fridge like an air conditioner. Be gentle - coils are somewhat fragile.
Some fridges have a faceplate that pops off at the front.

Light not working in GE chest frezer it is larger than the model below, 22 cf, it is 25 years old.

Check the bulb, check the tabs within the socket, check the door light switch.

Please, unplug fridge when testing these. We'd like to hear from you again.

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

Frezer does not seem to be working in the cold

s it should the ambient temperatures that you said are way to cold to expect the freezer to operate properly. move it indoors and or contact the manufacture and see if the have a kit to put on the unit to work properly.

The fridge on my fridge freezer has stopped

just about all friges work off the frezer .the evap fan moves the air fromthe frezer to the you would here fan noise.i dont know your brand but on most frezers if you turn the frezer temp to the highest setting thats acomplished by keeping the air from going to the frige.hence warmer frig temps .also make sure fan on out side back is working and condenser is clean.again turn air damper control from frezer to frige to lowest setting .somthimes this could be in frig section.God bless ,tom

Fridge Freezer very noisy!

cycling every 30 mins is normal. bear in mind that frost free are more noisy as there are fans running as well.
you appear to have temp in freezer too high - should be -18degC
