Normally compact refrigerators are not frost free and will need to defrosted periodically. This can be done by unpluging it for 24 hours to allow the ice to melt.

I have Whirlpool fridge FF450 Elite. Though the fridge cooling is normal, after the night working find in the early morning all magic light flickering though the fridge compressor is working. The freezing...


seems to me by the frost that the inside fan is not blowing air across the cooling radiator (evaporator), due to ice build up impeding air flow or the fan motor stalls or not working a t all. Defrost timer should also be checked if the air flows thru inside the fridge.

Hi, I have an LG artcool A09AHD aircon unit and after a while on the heat cycle, the unit stops and shows a circle with a snowflake and a waterdrop within the circle. Does anybody know what alarm tjis is?...


This may just be the defrost cycle for the outdoor unit. In the heat mode, the outdoor unit builds frost on the coil. The outdoor unit senses how much frost has built up on the coil and reverses the refrigerant cycle to allow the outdoor coil to warm up and defrost it. After a short period, the unit then restores itself to the heat cycle. This is normal operation and nothing to worry about. During the defrost cycle, you may feel some cool air inside your home.

There is ice buildup on the unit behind the fan and its causing the fan to rub on the ice. Why is this happening and what do i do to fix it?


Your unit is NOT frost free according to the specs so it will required periodic defrosting to keep the ice build up from affecting the fan.

Frost build up in freezer


The frost is preventing the evaporator fan from circulating the air.
Check that it is operating properly - and thaw out condenser if needed.
A hair dryer will work good.
Verify the fan is operational after thawing.

My compact fridge does not defrost and ice builds up in freezer section. How can I disconnect the freezer and not use it?


Lynne, the freezer section is what provides the cooling for the fridge, so there is no way to disconnect the freezer and still be able to have the fridge operate.

With the small compact fridges, the only thing you can do is to manually defrost the unit, when the ice buildup gets too much, which can vary, based on how you use your fridge, how often it gets opened and closed, etc.

Some compact fridge models have a small push button in the center of the temperature setting control knob - if your's has one, you can push that to initiate a self defrost cycle. However, you'll need to have some towels handy to collect the water that will result from melting off the freezer section.

There are not many small, compact fridge units that have the no-frost feature of full sized fridges, as it is more costly to build in all the needed components required to have frost-free operation. Not to mention the size of the fridge gets much larger, because of all the space needed to house those features (defrost heaters, electronic controls, ciruculating fans, control vents, sensors, drip/drain pan, etc., etc.)

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

The divder between my frig and freezer is also hot


This is normal. Modern frost free fridges have heaters built into the front edge of the cabinet to help keep the accumulation of surface condensation and excessive ice build up on the door edges inside the freezer and fridge.

It is nothing to worry about, but you might have an energy saver switch inside the fridge section that you can turn "on" to turn OFF the heaters (energy saver means the power using heaters would be OFF when the energy saver is "on", turning it "off" means the heaters are ON.

But not all fridges have a switch to turn off the heaters, so don't worry, just accept it and don't buy a new fridge until you need to.

Hope that helps, best regards!

Everything in my refrigerator is frozen even on the lowest setting... what gives?


nothing to worry! just switch off your refrigerator for about 8hrs and after that switch it again. if it won't work than its time to replace your thermostart. because due to its falure only, the compressor is continously running and the temp. decreases. and all the metarials frosted..........................have a nice day :-)
