Power cut out on Ariston Fridge Freezer

I cleaned the inside of the fridge part of our Ariston Fridge/Freezer today and didn't turn the power off before doing so, despite the advice of the applicance manual. I realise now, that I left the door open for periods whilst cleaning and it probably began to defrost; there was a lot of water inside the fridge. It seemed to work normally during the three hours that followed after I had finished, but then suddenly the power cut out altogether (no lights or sound at all). We have checked the plug, socket, fuse etc but they seem fine.
It is an Ariston MBA 3831 V fridge/freezer combined.
Any advice would be much appreciated.

SOURCE: fridge not cooling

It might be that the fan motor somehow got disconnected or worn out, or that the fan itself is stuck.  It’s located in back of the freezer.  Gently unscrew the back and check it out.  You might also have to unscrew the thermostat housing if it is on the top of the fridge part.  If the fan is turning, it’s okay.  If not, turn the thermostat down to its lowest setting and see if it turns on.  If not, unplug it and test it with a continuity tester.  If, there’s no continuity it will need to be replaced.  Good luck.

SOURCE: fridge doesn't get cold enough

you have either a Defrost heater / a defrost timer/ or a defrost bi-metal that is bad. if you post your model # i can look it up and show you how to set it into defrost to see if the heaters are ok
Since you replaced the timer already that leaves two things you need to check set it into defrost if you know how and remove the panel in the back wall of the freezer you should see the heater(s) are on if not check pwr 120vac at the heaters if 0 volts the bi-metal is bad

SOURCE: RS21FCNS - No water

It could be the water soleniod screen is clogged or if you have a filter clogged. Take the water line loose and check the screen first.

SOURCE: Freezer part doesn't freeze door was part open for hours

the coil inside of the freezer is probebly still frozen up with ice. Take a shop vac and open the freezer side after shutting the unit off and blow the air from the shop vac into the vents that are on the back side of the freezer until you can feel good air flow out of the very bottom of the freeezer. You can contact me and I will assist you if you need more help.

My Westinghouse fridge freezer, model WSE6100SF, was affected by a power cut lasting 3 days. It now smells, but not inside. Is there a drip tray under the fridge that collects the water?


yes there is but most are not removeable.... remove the cover in the rear of the fridge, the pan is located around the fan motor that's underneath the fridge... I would try pinesol, bleach or odoban to kill the smell..... good luck

I keep getting water at the bottom of the fridge, under salad boxes on my Hotpoint fridge


Red light on for High Freezer Temperature Warning
or freezer not cooling, but fridge is and a lot of noise from compressor.
Also, fridge drain hole blocked, water in bottom of fridge.


This is a common fault in Hotpoint Fridge Freezers and can also happen if the door has been left open or has been a power cut.

1. Turn off fridge freezer, or at least turn down the freezer temp to minimum, though not ideal.
2. Open freezer door and remove all drawers.
3. Remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. This is held in place with 4 screws, which might be 6mm hex head or star allen head. Pull the panel out.
4. Behind where the panel was, there is a cooling element for cooling, pipes, and below this a temperature sensor. If the fridge freezer is not switched off, then fold together a few layers of tinfoil and wrap around the sensor.
5. Use a hairdryer to slowly melt the ice. Melt it around areas where it appears to be hanging on, such as the corners of the cooling element or bolts, as well as any thin sections below the main block of ice around the cooling element, which will be supporting the main block. Use a plastic ice scraper to remove ice but not near pipes or sensor.
Warning: Be careful using electrics around water & melting ice & drips.
6. Below the cooling element, there is a drip channel & drain hole. If this hole is full of ice, pour a small amound of warm water down, leave for 10 seconds and pour a bit more until clear.
In the fridge, clear the drain hole in the same way.
Warning: Do not pour a lot of water down, as this water drains onto a tray above the hot compressor at the rear of the fridge freezer to be evaporated by the heat of the compressor and the tray will only hold a small amount.
7. When all ice is removed, dry all moisture. Put the shelves back. Close door. Turn on fridge freezer. Turn up the freezer temperature to your normal setting. Turn on fast freeze if available. After 1 hour, check with a thermometer. It should be cold enough after 1 or 2 hours.

MY FRIDGE CUTS OUT WHEN THE POWER FAILS EVEN IF THE POWER JUST FLICKS ON AND OFF WE CANNOT RESET IT HAS WE ARE ONLY AT THE COTTAGE WEEKENDS, SO WE LOSE EVERYTHING INSIDE


other than running your fridge on its own power source or fitting a gas operated fridge,(bottled gas) you must leave it empty,with the door open.....our friends in Canada have gas for heating and fridge /freezer and a generator, so they dont suffer any power cuts in winter.

ARISTON FRIDGE FREEZER MBA 3842C PROBLEM


It should work the same as before. Does the compressor get really hot after running a while? If so it could be low on charge, or there could be a restriction inside the refrigeration system. Either way a professional would have to look at it.
