SOURCE: zanussi freezone fridge freezer

well asuming you already thought to turn the thermostat down, i would check to see if you have a freon leak. with the fridge running, paint the coils with soapy water untill you see bubbles. mark that spot and dry off the area around it. generously apply electronics grade solder to the area where the leak is. (be sure you don't melt the copper and unplug the fridge first) then continue untill you have checked the entire length of coil. when all ieaks have been stoped recharge with recomended freon.

SOURCE: why does the fridge part of my zanussi freezone

Hi,the problem you are encountering is as a result of the fact that the thermostat which regulates the cooling temperature in the fridge/freezer is bad hence there is no regulation of the cooling temperature in the fridge/freezer section, hence the food in the fridge freezes up.

The solution is to replace the thermostat of the unit,here is how you go about it;

1.You have to disconnect the fridge from the power source.
2.Locate the thermostat at the bottom of the unit,at the top left corner above the condenser.
3.Now you need to locate the wire ends or wire harness and unplug them.
4.Replace the thermostat,reconnect it back,put the back cover back and you have completed the job.

Take care of yourself

Freezer not cold

Check Compressor. If its too hot to hold your hand on it then
you may need a new compressor. Check condensor fan, and check
evaporator fan

Transported the refrigerator on it's side and when we got to our destination, the ref doesn't work. doesn't get cold

you should have let it"rest", upright for 24 hours before you switched it on to let any gas bubbles settle.leave it closed and hopefully it will go back to normal soon....

Cool down period for plasma TV for transport.

I believe 20 minutest just enough. But when you bring it back from cold outside to your new home it have to stay/warm 2-3 hours before you plug it in.

Red alarm light is on on Westinghouse upright freezer

Most probably during transportation either the coolant(previously freon gas) may have leaked out so the pressure on the cooling pipeline causing the red alarm because the compressor will overheat if the fridge is kept running at very cold thermostat readings and no effect of cooling the fridge will ultimately result in the compressor getting burnt. However fist have look at thermostat setting knob which could have loosened during transportation and just pushed into the spindle without knowing the correct angle, thus even though it looks as if on high cool but could also be the lowest setting..........sodeep

Freezer quit working

I suspect when you lifted or moved the freezer, you tilted the compressor such that the oil washed out into the refrigeration lines. Common when people tilt refrigeration equipment the wrong way.
