Question about Zanussi ZX99 / 5 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
A couple of days ago my 3 year old fridge started acting up. The freezer is fine but the fridge has stopped cooling things down and is now not working at all? what could be the problem?
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,
