Question about Liebherr KIU 1640 Premium Compact Refrigerator
The fridge is not cooling and there is no compressor or fan noise but the light comes on. I recently went on a trip and when I returned the fridge wasn't getting cold. I turned it off and on on the thermostat and tried all the settings but there was no change. (about 3 years old)
Make sure that the compressor is working, You will need to take the fridge out and check the compressor motor for the start up on switch on > If not check the starter/contactor which could be defective and fitted to the motor. replace if faulty. Use a clamp tester or get help to finalise on this observation. Use a multimeter for checking for the voltage to the fan also. It might be possible that some rodents could have biten off your wires while you were out. so lets hope this is possible and so take a good look inside. If not check your compressor, starter. Good day

If there is no cooling on the fridge but the freezer is cooling then the compressor and gas pressure seems good. So to check the set for blocks in the ducts we must shut off the fridge.Keep it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge. However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
The fan making noise can be due to frost build up .If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
Do not set thermostat up to max but keep it to normal .So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
