Be sure the door seal is secure and closing tightly to prevent excessive moisture infiltration.

I have a beko frost free fridge freezer its only 18 months old and Ive got a build up of ice in the fridge. all my food is getting frozen and Ive got my temp dial down to min .cant understand what cou

Is the door seal working correctly? If the door has become distorted slightly it might be letting in moisture via a gap in the door seal which will result in the build up in ice.

If you can see ice build up leading from the door area, this will give you a clue to where the seal may be faulty. Check that the door is squared up to the freezer with a spirit level and if required gently bend the door back into place by holding the corner with your feet and adjust from the other corner.

Fridge stops but freezer still runs

What is the model number and have you looked at the walls inside freezer for signs of defrost failure? Frost building on freezer walls are a sign that defrost has not been working=> HERE If this is not what is happening then we need to see if frost is blocking an auto damper between the two sides. I need that model number to see what you have. Let me know if my way of placing explanations and links are helpful. Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a beko fridge freezer seral no0810452709 model cda554w is this one of the models recalled

The model number you have supplied doesn't appear to be in the correct format. Please see the information that follows.

I'm pasting this response on all queries regarding the recently announced issue with BEKO fridge freezers and the risk of fire from their defrost mechanisms, but I have placed it here in hints and tips too, in the hope it will be of use to any concerned BEKO Fridge owners:

According to several sources I have checked, including the London METRO magazine ( The MODEL numbers (not serial numbers) affected by the recall are as follows:


From what Ican ascertain, the fridges affected were manufactured between January 2000 andOctober 2006 (So, after shipping and sitting around in shops, you can probablyextend that margin to machines SOLD between 2000 and 2008)

If you go to the BEKO website, there is a link to check your serial number:

I have to say. Regardless of dates and matching serialnumbers, if I had an affected model,I would be checking with BEKO anyway!

My frost free fridge freezer has stopped working(beko) the fan inside the freezer is consyantly on the food in the freezer has defrosted and the element at the back is usually hot and now its cold

Please checck to see if your thermostat lines are in order or if some of the connecting wires are damaged bby frost. First of all switch off the fridge and allow all frost to clear. then check for the fan circuit, the auto defrost timer circuit. Now after few hours switch on the fridge. Check to see if the compressor is running the back side is getting warm and the freezer is cooling. If not check if the compressor is pumping well or being short of gas-- get help -. If not the timer could be the culprit as after the cooling takes place the fridge does not defrost. Check this out and the fault is confirmed if your fridge works fine now. Hope you try. Good day

Refrigerator not cooling.

frost build up on element behind freezer back panel becasue auto defrost isn't working (possibly timer). Frost build up blocks the airflow from freezer into fridge causing it to stop working but freezer still working.

Our beko frost free fridge freezer has stopped freezing. The fan is working and the freezer section cold but not cold enough. Thermostat is in the fridge - the fridge is icing up.

the thermostat in the fridge is turning off your compressor before the freezer has completed its job.this is because it doesnt care about the freezer temperature only the temperature where its located in this case the fridge,try completely defrosting the fridge and restarting it

Bottom mount freezer not getting cold enough

You have a failed component or components in your automatic defrost system. This is why you have excessive frost inside the freezer along the back wall. The timer could be stuck in run mode. The defrost thermostat (bi-metal) could be defective or the defrost heater could be open or shorted.
