SOURCE: fault e8 displayed on beko

Hi,
E8 is an Ice sensor failure (according to Beko)

From the listings, I think this is it. -

Clicky here

Beco wanted to send an engineer out with one to fit it. I'll let you guess the quote.
- It was more than £2.50 though.

SOURCE: Beko frost free fridge freezer,

sounds similar to mine. Find the source of the bubbling noise (defrost timer at the bottom), remove the cap and advance the timer with a screwdriver. If you fridge starts working, your defrost timer is faulty.

SOURCE: I own a Beko AP930

Just had this fault fixed on my 930. It is the ice sensor just under the ice cube tray - mine had a broken wire (from rotating several times a day for over a year!)
Fiddley but easy fix yourself with a "leggo" block connector to re join the wire if that is the fault, or ring Beko on 01923 654659 (very helpful company to deal with) for a part.
Part number 4344740185.
The other suggestion about the water filter I respectfully believe is wrong!

SOURCE: fridge freezer not keeping temp

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

It appears you may have a defrost thermostat problem. I'll tell about the entire defrost cycle to help you understand. Your defrost drain may also be stopped up.
The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can't flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad, it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won't turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass(disconnect the two wires plugged into it and twist them together) the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it's bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it's in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.

The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

I have a beko frost free fridge freezer its only 18 months old and Ive got a build up of ice in the fridge. all my food is getting frozen and Ive got my temp dial down to min .cant understand what cou


Is the door seal working correctly? If the door has become distorted slightly it might be letting in moisture via a gap in the door seal which will result in the build up in ice.

If you can see ice build up leading from the door area, this will give you a clue to where the seal may be faulty. Check that the door is squared up to the freezer with a spirit level and if required gently bend the door back into place by holding the corner with your feet and adjust from the other corner.

Why does the new fan in my Beko AP930 not come on. It worked for 30 minutes when I first installed it.


Three possibilities: 1) new fan motor failed or is jammed by something
2) power is not getting to the new fan. 3) The fan run circuitry is not getting the 'run' signal from the temperature sensing system.

I inherited a Beko AP930 and the freezer unable to reach -18 C. I have observed the temperature using separate digital thermometer, the minimum temperature the freezer can reach is -11 C, then it will...


If you never hear the unit shut off while it is at -18* then thats as cold as it will go. If you see the freezer drop to -18* and turns off then you may be able to get it colder by turning the thermostat clockwise. -18* is cold enough for most things ;)

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Our BEKO AP930 fridge freezer ice maker stopped working and we replaced the ice sensor but now the water dispenser isn't working. pipes connected correctly and there is a water suppky, Any ideas??


i had a similar problem with mine and the advice i got(possibly on here) was to leave the freezer door open to let the water supply pipe in the door defrost,put some blankets/ towels in the freezer to stop the
food defrosting,it worked for me and only took about 10 mins.

Beko ap930 no water geting to to ice tray


For me, this problem was because the tube was blocked with ice (the part of the tube inside the machine), which is why the tube popped off the back.
Try defrosting the freezer, or pushing hot water through the pipe with a syringe

Fault e8 displayed on beko ap930 fridge freezer


I had the same error message and the ice cube dispenser stopped working. On examining the workings, I found that the wire that should have been connected to the ice cube tray had sheared somehow (???) - a simple splice with lots of insulation tape has apparently fixed the problem.

Beko AP930 with Error code E0 in LHS of display .... what does this mean ? .... nothing in manual


Error codes are printed on underside of plastic cover on top of fridge. Warning electrical components inside! Error code E0 is the FREEZER door not being recognised as closed, switches are normally ok may be problem with printed circuit board. Freezer will work as normal but engineer should be called.
