IF THERE IS FROST ON THE BACK WALL OF THE FREEZER
INTERIOR, THERE IS A DEFROST FAILURE. EITHER THE
TIMER, HEATER, OR BI-METAL HAS FAILED. IF IT IS THE TIMER, YOU CAN LOCATE IT AND MANUALLY ADVANCE IT WITH THE SMALL KNOB ON ITS FACE. AS YOU ADVANCE IT, YOU WILL HEAR IT CLICK LOUD AND THE COMPRESSOR
WILL STOP RUNNING. WAIT ABOUT 10 MINUTES AND LISTEN IN THE FREEZER FOR SIZZLING OR POPPING. THIS IS A NORMAL NOISE WHEN THE HEATER IS MELTING OFF THE FROST. REPLACE THE TIMER.
IF THERE ISN'T FROST, THE FAN MOTOR OR DOOR SWITCH
HAS FAILED. YOU WOULD NEED TO REMOVE THE BACK
PANEL FROM THE INSIDE OF THE FREEZER TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE FAN MOTOR TO TEST IT. IF VOLTAGE IS PRESENT AT THE TERMINALS OF THE MOTOR, THE MOTOR IS BAD. IF NO VOLTAGE(120VOLTS AC), CHECK DOOR SWITCH.

Kenmore 22' bottom freezer model 596.77275790 isnt cooling in the fridge and the freezer seems to be working but there is alot of frost on the back of the freezer,I turned the fridge as high as it would go...


Sounds like the freezer/refrigerator ciculating fan is wearing out, this fan supplies the circulation for the freezer as well as the refrigerator. When is starts to wear out the rpms are reduced to a point that it will keep the freezer cold but not the refrigerator. The minimum cost to replace this fan is around $300.00

The strip between freezer and fridge is very hot


sounds as if you either need to clean the coils under the unit,they are clogged and unable to disapate correct amount of heat, or your fan mounted behind the unit, next tothe compressor has failed..YOUR UNIT IS WORKING EXTRA HARD TO GET RID OF HEAT.check those 2 places

Zanussi refrigerator/freezer model ZX99/5


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.

Fridge is not 'freezing', Looks like fan stopped working


could be due to ice build up jamming the fan. take back panel off and check for ice. if ice present the defrost system has failed. also on some models, the fan stops when door is opened. check door switch is operating
