Question about Freezers

1 Answer

Miele no frost fridge freezer KF 7542 DN serial no 57/58437431. This appliance has been troublesome from the start. in recent years, in the winter, it has formed an' ice block' in the channel which is meant to allow water to drain to the outlet hole. resulting in water and ice in the drawer beneath. In the summer this almost almost stops but Ice forms on the lower back right weall of the freezer and I have to remove Ice from the right side of the floor of the freezer at least once a week. These symptoms have been reported to various engineers who remain baffled. I would be very grateful for any advice or opinions you are able to give me. Helen

How do I defrost a non-frost freezer?

You can unplug the unit & open the doors. Not very friendly to all of the items in the fridge. You can accelerate thawing w/ a heat gun or hair dryer. You will need to replace the defrost timer to prevent it from re-freezing. The defrost timer is relatively easy to replace. I recommend viewing the manufacturers' website to determine location & part number of the defrost timer.

We have a bosch economic no frost freezer which is several years old. Recently we noticed that although it was showing the correct temperature but the contents were not frozen. We ehave emptied the freezer...

The starter/overload relay may be bad or the compressor is overloading the relay. See how to test them here. How to check stuff>

Frost buildup in freezer

Remove the bottom panel from the front of the fridge. Look for a small motor with a screw slot in it. Turn the srewdriver slowly and only clockwise, until a click is heard. wait about 3-5 minutes and check if the walls of the freezer are getting warm. If they do all you need is a defrost timer. That's the thing you just activated, by the way. More often than not you can find them at the dump in the appliance pile, OR you may have just gotten it to work for another year. Keep a close eye.

I have an unexplained smelly zanussi fridge/freezer model Model zx99/5si? I have a zanussi frost free fridge/freezer model Model zx99/5si which is just 4 years old and it is now giving off a revolting...

Hi - we had this problem, and it was in fact where some blood from a defrosting pice of meat drained into the compressor condensation tank and began to decay!

I agree the smell is terrible, so a good clean up is needed but this solves the problem immediately!

Kind regards,

Indesit fridge freezer not getting cold (2 years old)

I would first check to see if the evaporator in the freezer is all iced up. If it is thats whay you do not have any cooloing. And If that is the case you have a defrost problem and it is not short on gas. If you see only a few coils on the evaporator frosted up then you do have a leak in the system and my be covered under the manufactures warrenty.
