Fridge Freezer in Autodefrost mode


Our Fridge Freezer has decided to go into autodefrost mode and we dont know why. Our power supply tripped out in our home briefly for a few seconds until we reset the power (which has happened before) but on this occassion our Beko Fridge/Freezer has decided to start defrosting. There is power to the applicance and every 5 mins or so we hear a short "hum" coming from what I think is the thermostat. Our Fridge part seems also to be starting to warm. We've just done our weekly shopping and look set to loose our food!. Can anyone help explain whats going on and can we do anything about it?????

Power surge can cause problems such as you have. I am not familiar with your brand but it sounds like the defrost timing circuit is your problem. Defrosting the surface of the back wall is not the answer. The cooling coil in the freezer is behind the back wall normally and a surface defrost does not do the trick of defrosting the coil. Have an appliance service tech check it out for you.

Hello We have a gaggenau 2 door fridge freezer,SK 533. And it keeps tripping out the electrics. We have tried running it off a different fuse box and still it happens. Can u help?

Sounds like the defrost element in the freezer has failed in spectacular form, this is the most common fault for tripping power, or it could be the thermostat but this is highly unlikely.
If you can, gain access to the element by dismanteling the panel inside the freezer, the element will run at the base of the cooling cores with a wire at each end (black) and an earth point (green), check with multi-meter, on earth and one on black, check both ends of black. You should find you will have a flow through one of the ends that will indicate a short curcuit, replace the element if faulty.

Have american style fridge freezer, model S25B RSB31. Seems to be tripping the electricity supply. When power restored, find that the freezer has two bars where you would see -18c. After putting in and...

Your defrost heat element is shorting, resetting will make it work till defrost cycle kicks in and HEY PRESTO""shorts again...very common fault and bugs the hell out of all of us, check it and I am pretty sure that is the fault. Or you are getting water or condensation in the control panel but very rare.

Regards and hope that sorts the issue...Please dont forget to Vote, I do this for free, Russ

Frigidaire fridge freezer not getting cold

Louise, this is a big area. I would switch off the fridge, look at the back where you see the" box things". You should see a timer which is white or black (wires comming out of it).. It has a short type of knob which can be turned manually clockwise.. Turn about a 1/4 turn then try and switch on again. If not, thermostat will be the problem. Assuming you never disrupted any wires.

The fridge on my fridge freezer has stopped

just about all friges work off the frezer .the evap fan moves the air fromthe frezer to the you would here fan noise.i dont know your brand but on most frezers if you turn the frezer temp to the highest setting thats acomplished by keeping the air from going to the frige.hence warmer frig temps .also make sure fan on out side back is working and condenser is clean.again turn air damper control from frezer to frige to lowest setting .somthimes this could be in frig section.God bless ,tom
