This one sounds like the defrost timer is not working and you are not getting a defrost cycle every 6-8 hours (or when needed). Another issue could be that air (moisture) is getting in from a leaky door seal, etc. and causing the freeze up. If you have a sealed system problem where the cooling coils are not uniformly frosted up then the defrost thermostat will not "know" there is an ice condition and therefore not go into defrost mode (same issue if the defrost t-stat is bad). After you have ALL the ice out of the unit it would be a good idea to take the interior rear cover off so you can view the coils. Start the freezer back up and watch over the next 1/2 hour or so to see that the entire coil is frosting up uniformly. If it isn't you may have a plugged system, a leak causing low refrigerant, etc. If over time the coils look uniformly frosted up you may have a defective defrost heating element itself (no heat, no defrost sort of thing). The defrost elements can be checked with a multimeter for continuity if you know how to do that sort of thing. It's hard to know a person's ability by these forums or if they can tackle certain test procedures.

SOURCE: bought a chescold finch 3 way fridge but no instructions - help

The max/min gas flame is for adjustment of temperature when using the fridge on gas. The next one with 0 to 7 is possibly the electrical thermostat. I am not familiar with this exact model. One of the dials will be able to be pressed in. The idea is to press and hold this button in for about a count of five, then push the lighter strike. You will hear a click noise which is when a spark is delivered to the burner area. Some fridges have a small window or guage which shows if the flame has lit. You may have to look down the chimney. You keep holding the press button down after having depressed the lighter strike button for about five seconds. This allows gas to flow to the burner while the thermocouple heats up. Once the thermocouple (which is a small copper probe sticking almost into the flame) heats up, it will keep the gas valve open and if you then release the button, the flame will continue burning. The idea is that if the flame were to blow out, the thermocouple would cool and in turn act as a safety by shutting off the gas supply. Hope this is enough info.

SOURCE: The top shelf in my upright freezer ices up badly;

If this is the type of freezer where the shelves are the evaporator coils, the coolant goes through the shelves(tubing) and the formation of frost is normal and has to be manually defrosted.All the shelves should be as cold asd the top one. The fact that just one has any frost may indicate that it is low on freon. If this is the case you should notice that the freezer doesn't get cold enought.

Why is Zanussi frost free freezer alarm always flashing


Because it does not achieve the correct temperature (for example: -18 degrees centigrade).
For a more precise answer I need more information.
A lot of things may be incorrect:
- Doesn't work defrosting cycle
- The cooling fan is not working
- Too much ice on the evaporator battery
- Faulty thermostat or NTC sensor
- Faulty cooling system (gas leak)
- Compressor
- Electronic

Freezer is not even keeping ice cream from melting..and the 2 slots at the top in the back by the top shelf?? Are filled with IVE


Do an old fashioned dethaw of your icemaker. Remove food in compartment, unplug or turn off freezer. Leave doors closed, and get a thick towel and a pot of boiling water. Place the towel under the pot, close the door, and let the heat from the pot warm up that frozen freezer vent. That will clear the ice so the fan can draw cold air out into the freezer

Starting the Appliance
Insert the plug into the wall socket. The green pilot light will illuminate to show that the appliance is switched on. The red alarm light will also illuminate until the freezer reaches the correct temperature.

Alarm Light
The red alarm light will illuminate when the temperature in the freezer is higher than the thermostat setting. This alarm light will illuminate if:
- The appliance has just been started.
- Fresh food has been put in the freezer.
- The lid has been left open, opened frequently or open for too long.
The red light will go out when the freezer has returned to the correct temperature

Top shelf ices over


This could be because of the thermostat not sensing when the fridge reaches its set temperature and as a result of this the compressor will keep on running and build-up of ice will occur.Second cause of the ice might be the door rubber seal not sealing propperly.

Hope this helped.

Upright freezer-only top shelf gets frost


it may be that the door is open a lot witch lets in warm air that go's to the top of your freezer and turns into ice so there maybe nothing wrong with your freezer, in winter we heat the house up and close all the windows this holds in the damp air,, in the summer it should be ok, but to test it place a thermometer in the freezer is should be about -21*f or there abouts for a 4 star freezer

Top Shelf of Freezer Not Cooling


sounds like you may have a refridgerant blockage in the system. it may need a regas to see if it can be unblocked, as this is not a quick job it may cost you but phone around on the cost/feasibility of it. it may be just as well to get a new or second hand freezer.
