Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Food centre (3yrs old) costing 1000.00 is now suffering from insulation breakdown. I argue it has to be a manufacturing fault as it is inside sealed panels and there is no damage to internal or external it is also situated as per manufacturers guidelines. Please advise

    We contacted Currys repair centre when the fridge freezer started heating up. they gave us the name of their local eng who came in and diagnosed, breakdown of the fan. Also insulation breakdown within the casing. He said the fridge even if repaired would have a very short life span. 


    Now trying to deal with currys as this appears to have been a manufacturing fault. Please advise

Panasonic NN-CT585S Microwave Oven - door seal melting on inside - only 2.5 years old. Has anyone else had this fault or just please check where the glass meets the plastic on inside door.


The door seal is called the reflector cover. It stops particles of food from being left in the reflector, the square waveguide that is under the plastic seal.
The only thing that I think can cause that is particles of food or grease/oil sticking to it and melting the plastic. I don't think it is a fault from my experience of working with microwave ovens since 1993 for Panasonic and many other brands.

Insulation breakdown


Hi.

I have not seen a subzero unit that could not be repaired, even thirty years old unit can be repaired. With that being said, I would call subzero directly to ask for a certified servicer in your area to take care of your unit. Here is a link for their website to help you Contact and Support they will get you a person knowledgeable to correct your issue. FYI not everyone can work on SubZero unit. This unit if 12 1/2 years old is just a teenager to this manufacture, no worries. They can last over 30 years, I have seen them and repaired them.
I am here if you need help in SoCal.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gere_bf68e6055dd61249

Food does not get hot


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Moved homes and took old dishwasher to new home (about 3yrs old), now seems the machine is loud (sounds like disposal is louder) all insullation is still on machine. we did go fom carpet floor to tile...


make sure your unit is secured properly[screwed up into counter and leveled], to minimise vibration. other wise you may want to try putting some insulation behind the kick plate.

Freezer burn on all foods when sealed by me or the manufacturer


You might need to turn the freezer temp. up a little. I think 0-10 degrees is good.

Sub Zero insulation freezing


These units are pretty much manufactured, then the insulation is inserted as a liquid that forms into a solid insulation. Consider the age of the unit for a replacement IMHO.
