Question about Liebherr Custom Finish 24" Right Hinge Built-In BioFresh/Refrigerator - RBI-1400

Leibherr side by side fridge/fridge freezer

Our side by side was noisy from the start, it sounded as though there was a high wind blowing in the kitchen? Now the small fridge ( over the freezer) has stopped completely along with the ice maker (in the freezer below)?

The other large fridge is always frosted up on it's back wall.

Any idea's experts?

    Thankyou for your response.
    No sadly the warranty is void, it's not the freezer that has stopped but the fridge that sits on top of the freezer. This was what made the 'high wind atop a mountain' noise until it stopped working, the integral ice maker in the freezer below packed up at the same time?

    Could these have been damaged in transit (we shipped from the UK when brand new) or are these common problems?
    Thankyou

    We have a new Leibherr fridge on top of freezer which we have shipped so negated the warranty. From the outset the fridge made a loud ' high winds' noise and eventually stopped working along with the integral ice maker in the freezer below, can you offer any suggestions?
    Thankyou

    Sorry I didn't see the second reply/assistance as i was only reading the copy in the green box.

    I am very grateful for all advice and certainly wouldn't refuse any.

    Many thanks

The fridge being frosted up is good, that means that that cooling unit is working but you may have it set a little cooler than needed.

You may have a faulty cooling system for the freezer because it shouldn't be louder than any other refrigerator. The fan might've been running much higher than normal and eventually burnt out. If you still have this under warranty, I would call them up on this. I would first call the store, when we buy a new appliance, we usually extend the warranty and make sure that it covers a free visit to our home if something major may go wrong.

If anything, you will probably have to replace parts from the freezer unit, have you noticed any liquid from the cooling system, possibly the compressor has gone bad and needs to be replaced

*Be Careful, if there is a capacitor, you will need to discharge it before working

Good luck with this

It seems to be a compressor problem or loss of coolant liquid

    (The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice )


    Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off.

    Here's how to check.

    Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger.

    If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off.

    On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on.

    On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire.

    If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit.

    If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice.

    Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary

    Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling.

    The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:


    • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.


    • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.


    • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top.


    Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

    To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause.

    You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.

    Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is
    with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the
    refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and
    leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours.
    (Be sure to have several towels ready
    in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows
    the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has
    completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the
    refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three
    components in the self-defrosting system:



    • The defrost timer



    • The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal switch)



    • The defrost heater

    If it still does not cool properly,
    there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor. You may
    need to consult with a qualified appliance repair technician to further diagnose
    the problem

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Refrigerator not working but freezer is


You have two vents between the freezer and fridge. The one the cold air from the freezer comes through(blown by the fan) and the other vent is a return vent back to the freezer. On a side/side they're at the top and bottom. It sounds like the bottom one may be blocked by food or frosted closed by ice.

Bottom of freezer/fridge only getting cold.


Thre is a fan inside the freezer which circulates the cold air around both the fridge and the freezer compartments.
You should be able to feel cold air blowing around the inside, particularly at the top of the freezer.
If the defrost thermostat fails open, the internal fan (depending on freezer) will stop and this can be the cause of the freezer being warm at the top and no ice.
You say the bottom of the freezer is blowing cold, but are you sure its blowing, as it can feel like a cold blow. Of course the fan could have failed or may be the defrost heater itself.
