Question about Refrigerators
After 4 months my freezer has decided to give up the ghost - I came down this morning to find the freezer had defrosted itself.
Anyone had the same issue ??

SOURCE: fault e8 displayed on beko
E8 is an Ice sensor failure (according to Beko)
From the listings, I think this is it. -
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.
Thanks for using Fixya! If this works for you, Please rate as fixya for others to follow. Thanks.

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
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer 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.
