Question about Zanussi ZEBF250W Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Power light flashing on & off

The power light on my ZEBF250W Zanussi fridge freezer intermittently flashes on & off. It can be cleared by powering the unit off & back on again.

The fridge freezer still seem to work OK apart from this. What might be wrong with it?

Re: Power light flashing on & off

Try to unplug and plug the power cord this may help, flashes is an error code. Try also the defrosting, error codes alarm the owner if there are some abnormal operation int the unit.

Zanussi fridge freezer fan sticking

See the picture below:

It is best to perform a visual inspection of the fan and measure the winding resistance. In this case there is no possibility of blocking the fan due to the excessive amount of ice. The reason is clearly visible from the the picture. The fan is located above the battery evaporator.
So, could be faulty: fun, wiring between fun and PCB, printed circuit board (PCB).

Can i turn the freezer part of my fridge of so i can defrost the bottom part n leave the top part on , i have a zanussi electrolux

no your model is a single compressor which runs both frdge and freezer.. freezer is supposed to be frost free however freezing elements can be overwhelmed with frost if door has been left open. there is a drain hole behind the back panel of the freezer that can block or freeze up causing water to flow in tp the freezer and turn to ice. complete defrost and check that drain hole is clear to fix it.

9 times out of ten, when the freezer portion works, and the refrigerator portion doesn't, it is the evaporator fan that is the problem. I am not familiar with that model, so I do not know where the fan is located. But there is a fan that blows cold air from the freezer into the fridge portion. Usually, a fan blade is just stuck, and just needs to be repositioned or the bearing the motor spins on could be frozen or rusty. I little household oil usually does the trick, or you might need a new fan motor.

Another possible cause is the ice that can build up. If there is ice blocking the air's path it will have the same result. You said you had defrosted the unit, so this is not likely in your case

back panel removes.
problem is that defrost system is not working.
check defrost heater and thermal cutout in series with heater.
if those ok, then problem is probably with main module

Freezer Icing Up

Try contacting the hotline again and ask them if the freezer has a frost sensor on it. If it does, the sensor is not kicking the thermostat to allow for the unit to defrost.

Zanussi fridge freezer

sounds like the freezer evaporator has iced /frosted up and you will not get cold airflow through it. try a 24 hour defrost to clear it. then check fridge cooling.
