It sounds like you have a plugged defrost drain line. This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube.

Hope this helps,
Sai.

Fridge portion doesn't get cold


The defrost circuit is not working, there are usually 3 things that normally go bad, defrost timer, defrost heater, and thermal switch. Would have serviceman check it out as cooling fins on coils will cut you like a razor.

Hi.. feel the dividing rdge between fridge and freezer.. is it warm?.. chances are that the little fan at the back of the fridge freezer that helps cool the compressor, has snagged own it's own wire... it's a weak fan, like you get in a computer, but it does a lot of work.. without it, the coolent does not do it's job, which results in your device not cooling things properly

The refrigerator has stopped running.


Hi there,
A fridge is divided by many parts. if the main motor dies then the whole fridge will not function. In your case the freezer is still working but the rest isnt. Still, i think you should have it checked out by a repairman to determine any inside problem and to avoid any future trouble.

I bought a Zanussi ZF4 fridge/freezer second hand about two weeks ago. When I installed it I made sure that it was left to stand for 12 hours before turning on and that it was cleaned thoroughly. The unit...


It is possible that it is the thermostat, and if not as you hear the compressor starting shortly then stopping, and redoing that many times.
Your compressor is certainly out of order and must be replaced by a professional, that means to dessolder the current compressor, and replace it with the new one, and change the gas.
So major intervention and at least 2 hours of work.
In the end, you will have a new heart for this great fridge.

Clicking, buzzing, compressor too hot, thawed out


Sounds like the compressor is in thermal overload. Let it cool down completely and meter the starting amperage on start to run. The compressor could be seized or it's windings could be shorted to ground (checking the resistance between the windings terminals on the compressor while unplugged will determine this.).
