Hi there!

Unfortunately the refrigerant gas has escaped, so will no longer function.

This appliance in now unrepairable, and should be replaced.

Check your home insurance, as you may be able to claim accidental breakage or loss of food due to refrigeration failure.

Sorry I cannot suggest a quick-fix for you.

If this information resolves the issue, Please take a moment to rate as Fixya. I know it's not repairable, but you needed to clarify that.

Everything at the top of my freezer has defrosted. The bottom is still frozen.

The freon gas is not circulating properly and there is a leakage in the cooling pipes. You have to call a technician and have the leakage located. Could be that gas is not sufficient.

My old Electrolux Model FI22/10B (frost free freezer), started freezing up. When i defrosted it, it had holes in the top part of the fridge and gas started spraying in my face. My landlord is now holding...

What you were looking at was the evaperator. If it was evenly froze up, it had a defrost problem. If it was just an iceball then it had a leak in the system.

Fridge Freezer not working after power cut?

Unfortunately if there is no ice build up that would suggest there is no cooling happening at all.
You would need to check if the compressor is running, this is located at the bottom rear of the appliance, you may have to take an inspection panel off to get to it.
If it's running and very hot then it would indicate a system fault (system is the sealed gas system of the appliance), faulty compressor, blockage or a leakage of the refrigerant gas.

If it's not running then it could be a sensor or the electronics.

Sorry, I don't have technical information on this appliance so really cannot help further than the basic checks.

Ice is forming on bottom and back wall of freezer can any one help with this

there are two types of freezer, one is upright freezer (same as refrigerator on outside look but inside all the layers are same as the freezer of an ordinaryrefrigerator) the other one is the chest type freezer(basically it looks like a chest cabinet),now about the forming of ice at the bottom and back wall, well should be all side of the freezer should have ice on it,

Just one question to ask? Did you used any sharp object in removing ice(ex. knife, ice pick , etc,)

If you do then there are a possibility that you do some hole on the tubes where the Freon Gas (chemical refrigerant) are passing thru, then in that case you might have leakage. Well that means you really need to call a technician to do the job, because you'll gonna need to fix the hole and re-charge a freon gas.(having not enough refrigerant on the system, your refrigerator might not able to produce ice completly.

The other possible reason is that your motor compressor might be damaged(possible reason: Lost compression) it has something to do with pump compression inside the motor (only technician can solve this problem)

Ice is forming in the freezer due a small hole formed the freezer door.some say that the gas is leeking so it happens any solution?

you must close the hole otherwise you will always see the frost.Humid air comes from outside and creates the frost.Change the door gasket.Be sure it seals good.

Hole in freezer

Time to get a new one. I take it you defrosted using a sharp object. Not the thing to do. Defrosting can be done with a simple device such as a hair dryer and do the system no harm.
