Question about Freezers

Noisey fridge freezer

Our Zanussi fridge freezer (4 draw freezer at the bottom) vibrates really noisily when the compressor clicks on. This is usually worse when the fridge is full, or I've opened the freezer several times in one day. The noise stops when we push and hold the fridge door firmly closed, (although the door is already closed and the seal is sealed properly) but we can't stand there all day doing that!
The fridge freezer is only a year old.
Can you help?
Many thanks and best regards

Please check the fallowing:
-Loose flooring or floor not firm.

Hi, We have an under-counter freezer (Zanussi ZU9120F) we bought 4 years ago. Before going on holidays we turned it off and let the water evaporate. After our return, we turned it on again but it did...

It could be stuck in defrost mode. However if you can locate the defrost timer pictured here:
You can advance to turn on controls, compressor. If it sticks it should be replaced.

Zanussi fridge freezer alarm keeps sounding

If the refrigerator and freezer are both working properly. Then the only problem would be the alarm, It's either the placement of the alarm thermometer or the alarm thermometer is stuck closed.

The fridge/freezer is making buzzing noises that go on for 10/15 seconds every 5 minutes or so. Both fridge and freezer have heated up to 49 and 26 degrees through the night. Help!

ur compressor is trying to start but the safety is turning it off may have a bad compressor but try this first might get it working again -(safety click sound) disconnects power when compressor gets to hot or is drawing to many amps--stuck--comp gets hot unplug unit and clean with a vacuum carefully under where comp and fan are this is the condenser area after cleaning or 1 hr plug in and check for start and that condenser fan is working may be reason for overheating-if still not working compressor needs service

My Bosch frostfree fridge freezer keeps icing up!

My Bosch Frost Free Fridge Freezer did the same thing - Ice forming in the bottom of the freezer area after a few days.

It was caused by a blocked drain pipe - When the freezer does the de-frosting cycle, the melted ice drips into a tray and tehn runs into a dish on top of teh compressor, through a pipe.

If this pipe gets blocked, the de frosted ice overflows from the tray and overflows into the bottom of the freezer and then re-freezes !

To fix, pull the freezer away form the wall, locate the pipe that runs to the dish on top of the compressor and blow through it - This should clear it. Alternatively, from inside the freezer compartment, pull off the cover at the back, but the clips holding it on will probably break off, as mine did ! You can sort of push the cover back on and re-fit the food draws.

Zanussi fridge freezer not cooling

no, its probably weak capacitors which provide power to switch the relay. Take the control board out and ask a friendly TV repair tech to change the capacitors

Zanussi ZX 57/3 fridge and freezer not working

Hi . Most freezers with the condenser coils at the back do not work when the temperature where it is placed gets below (( 5 degree c ))?? IE in a garage if it is freezing weather outside. One solution is somehow to keep the condenser compartment warm. Check the makers website. for what they say about it

I have an unexplained smelly zanussi fridge/freezer model Model zx99/5si? I have a zanussi frost free fridge/freezer model Model zx99/5si which is just 4 years old and it is now giving off a revolting...

Hi - we had this problem, and it was in fact where some blood from a defrosting pice of meat drained into the compressor condensation tank and began to decay!

I agree the smell is terrible, so a good clean up is needed but this solves the problem immediately!

Kind regards,
