Zanussi ZX99 temp alarm problem, how to de-activate alarm ?

I have a Zanussi ZX99 with the same temp alarm problem as others have had, however both compartments do not warm up at all, so I think it may be the sensor, does anyone know the location of the alarm module itself ?, as I would like to de-activate until I fix the problem. Thanks

I had this problem with my ZX99. In my case it was caused by faulty temp sensors not making the defrost system kick into place. The defrost cycle works by heating an element for every week or so for a few minutes.

This may be an airflow problem. These are things to check. Make sure the temp control in the fresh food section for both the freezer and the fresh food is set half way between coldest and warmest temp setting. Over adjusting these settings can cause poor air circulation and make the fresh food section too warm. When openning the freezer, the evaporator fan should be on or start shortly. If the evaporator fan stops working, there will be no circulation to cool the fresh food section and will need to be checked to see if it is bad. If bad it will need to be replaced. The evaporator in the freezer section may be iced over causing poor air flow to the fresh food section. You may need a service tech to check this part. If the evaporator is iced over, stopping air circulation, the button thermostat or defrost element may on the evaporator may be bad and could possibly reqiure a technician to replace it Check the first two things and let me know what you find and how it is doing after reseting the temp control. I will be happy to help you in any way I can..

Hi,
I had the same problem...it was a defrost problem in the freezer....mad i know...fridge doesnt work but freezer does...so its the freezer problem right!!!
This is how i solved it....there is fan behind the freezer compartment....you need to remove all the freezer draws then the plate at the back of the freezer compartment(everything is accessible from inside the freezer only) once removed you can put your hand up inside the gap(make sure power is off and unplugged) just in reach is the fan which you should be able to rotate with your fingers...mine was covered in ice and not able to move as a result the cold air couldnt be blown up into the fridge(the only thing controlling the air into the fridge is a flap and depending upon what fridge setting you have this determines how much cold air its letting in.)
If the fan has been frosted up you need to defrost the freezer....and source a new defrost sensor.
hope it helps.

SOURCE: zanussi zx99/5 not working ,lights still working

sounds like the thermostat inside the fridge has gone.
The information I have provided is a guide and is not directly related to the make and model of the appliance brand you have but seems to cover the majority of household fridge freezers I have come accross. There is a dial inside the fridge usually up on the right side wall of the fridg where the light is. It is usual for the thermostat unit to be inside the plastic housing behind the dial. It is easy to replace the thermostat because I have done it myself and it worked. I am not an expert so if I can do it then anybody could. the unit is usually a standard replacement unit which costs roughly £20.00 available from fridge freezer repair shops. I got my replacement from Sale Appliances, Victoria Avenue, Southend-on-Sea, Essex. The unit comes with the thermometer type wire which fixes to the back of the fridge - inside that is- already attatched to it and all you need to do is remove the screw holding the housing in place (unplug from mains first of course), remove bulb, prise off the plastic housing to reveal thermostat unit, take some detailed pictures of how the wires are attatched or take detailed notes and diagrams, pull off the eelectical connectors (may need a pair of pliers to help, but must be gentle so as not to rip wires out of the connectors), put in new thermostat and rewire as it was before. You will not have to literally rewire the thing but simply slide the wired connectors onto the correct place. The connections are numbered both on the old unit as well as the new unit. Dont worry if the connectors on the rear of the new unit is different to the old one so long as you connect the wires to the same number it wont matter where that connector is located e.g. number two always fixes to the number two marked on the unit, number 3 to numbr 3 etc.

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.

Zanussi Zx99/5SI fridge not chilling freezer Frozen over


Tell you what, first do a good 12 hour defrost and restart. Chances are you left the door ajar accidentally. (even though you say you never,) Most of the time there is the issue. If it continues after that, let me know and ill go through the defrost procedure (the cheap way)..
