Greetings suepentony.

Generally when your fridge stops cooling and your freezer also is having diminished function, it is an indication either your compressor is going bad, or you need freon. I would suggest having a repair person come check out the unit as soon as possible to prevent further food loss.

I hope this helps!

Should fan run constant on indesit ban12fn fridge freezer?


It should shut off when it reaches the correct temperature. If you have the temp set to low it could cause it to continue to run or if there is an issue with the fridge that could also cause this issue. Keep in mind after a defrost it will take some time for everything to get back to the correct temp so it may run constant for a long time.

Sounds like a motherboard or defrost control board. Can you tell me the model number found inside the fresh food compartment or around fresh food section door frame, Without the model number it is hard to guess what the switch is that you are asking about, Thanks Sea Breeze

Hello there,
The problem with the refrigerator that is causing it to freeze continuously is simply because the defrost heater is not working. Have the defrost heater tested and replaced once found faulty.
Also you need to check the defrost timer and defrost thermostat to see if they are still in good condition. Once any component is found faulty, then you have to replace it with a new one.

Fridge don't work after defrosting session


It depends on weather or not you damaged it during the defrost. Most fridges' are self defrosting. Look at the coils behind the back cover inside the freezer. They should be covered in a light frost if the compressor is working right. Or Is the fan in the freezer running. It has to blow the cold air around the freezer and to the fridge side. It may cut off when the door is open so hold the door switch in to check. The humming in the freezer could be the fan trying to run but can't because of a defective fan or being blocked by somthing.

GE Profile - fridge not cooling


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Zanussi refrigerator/freezer model ZX99/5


Hi,
I had the same problem...it was a defrost problem in the freezer....mad i know...fridge doesnt work but freezer does...so its the freezer problem right!!!
This is how i solved it....there is fan behind the freezer compartment....you need to remove all the freezer draws then the plate at the back of the freezer compartment(everything is accessible from inside the freezer only) once removed you can put your hand up inside the gap(make sure power is off and unplugged) just in reach is the fan which you should be able to rotate with your fingers...mine was covered in ice and not able to move as a result the cold air couldnt be blown up into the fridge(the only thing controlling the air into the fridge is a flap and depending upon what fridge setting you have this determines how much cold air its letting in.)
If the fan has been frosted up you need to defrost the freezer....and source a new defrost sensor.
hope it helps.

Cold freezer warm fridge.


That sound was the evaporator fan motor in the freezer. This circulates the cold air from the freezer into the fresh food section. If this is not running you need to check for power to it. If the fan has power to it but not running, replace it. It should be located behind freezers back wall inside of freezer near top.
