Ariston Fridge not cooling - Frozen Coils

Hi,
I have an ariston fridge, freezer on top model about 5(?) years old. Lately the fridge has stopped cooling properly but freezer is still warm. The fan etc was working fine but was noisy so i pulled the back off and the coils were all frosted up. I have defrosted it twice now with a hairdryer which fixes the problem for a few weeks but then the coils start to freeze up again and it needs to be repeated. It seems from reading that it is the defrost time/heater... Can anyone tell me where to find these in this type of fridge and how to check them. I couldnt see anything in the back but then maybe i dont know what im looking for.

Any help would be greatly appreciated so i dont break something in my search. Thankyou!

Try to check the noisy fan, slow rotation of fan can cause the icing evaporator. Unplug the unit and rotate the fan manually by your finger check if the fan is not misalign or not touching the fan frame. Or check if fan motor bearing is not worn out. Under charge of gas is also one of icing cause.

Hi.. feel the dividing rdge between fridge and freezer.. is it warm?.. chances are that the little fan at the back of the fridge freezer that helps cool the compressor, has snagged own it's own wire... it's a weak fan, like you get in a computer, but it does a lot of work.. without it, the coolent does not do it's job, which results in your device not cooling things properly

Freezer on bottom cold but frig is warm


Just additional clues..(general). The defrost timers (on non-electronic) usually located at the bottom (underneath), have a tendency to fail. (One of mine is in the center, one was on the left side) There are usually about 5 wires connected to it. If it fails while defrosting.. the fridge will warm quickly and stop cooling, if it fails in cooling mode, you will have the icing up problem. (other) A squealing noise is usually a fan motor. -also- (Freon issues)..as freon is lost from a small leak, first the freezer will actually get colder, but the refrigerator section may be too warm (I know it sound stupid). When enough is lost the compressor will get hot and the fridge will not cool.
