Re: fridge does not cool


Sounds like ice built up on the evaporator coils inside the freezer. thus hindering air flow to the refridgerator section. Is there ice build up in the freezer? This is assuming the temperature control didn't get changed inadverttily.

Hope this helps

I recently brought this fridge out of storage, it was working perfectly fine before i put it into storage. I plugged it in and the lights are on, i let it run for a few hours but it did not get cold or...

The cooling fans do not run unless the right temperature is reached. The important thing is to find if the compressor is running. If you do not hear a whirring sound when the fridge is powered on, then the compressor has a problem. Generally when you put in storage the refrigent can leak out and needs to be refilled.

If the compressor is running then check the thermostat settings. Might also help if you provide the make and model number of your fridge.

Fridge temperature rising - currently at 10 degrees. Internal temperature alarm not being triggered. Freezer not affected. Motor running when door opened/closed.

Although I have never worked on a Zanussi unit, from what you have said it is a classic frost build up in the cooling tubes, which is usually a result of defrost system failure. To verify this you can manually defrost your unit. If the problem goes away, then you need to troubleshoot your defrost circuit, because it will be back in days or weeks.

Re. Zanussi ZK87/46EFS Fridge Freezer

The same symptom occurred in our fridge freezer. The fridge compartment warmed up whilst the freezer compartment continued to keep temperature.

The cause of our problem was diagnosed as a frozen sensor that controls a flap, that controls the flow of cold air from the freezer compartment up into the fridge compartment. We were advised to power off the fridge freezer (removing all food and trays from the freezer unit first), and to leave it to defrost for 24hrs. We needed to place a few towels on the floor of the freezer compartment to soak up the melt water. After 24hrs we followed the power up instructions in the manual (versions are available online if you have lost yours). Within a few minutes it was obvious that the fridge compartment was being cooled – Problem solved :)

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.

Fridge/Frezer stop working

Can you tell if the compressor (black soccer ball looking thing in the rear of the unit) is running? Is it really hot? Is the little fan running near it? If the compressor isn't running it won't cool. Also check that the coil in the freezer section isn't frozen solid blocking all air flow inside the unit. The other thing is that the defrost cycle may be "stuck" so it thinks it should be defrosting (therefore not running the compressor, etc.) Lots of things to check but that info will help decide which way to go so post what you find please.
