Question about Refrigerators
Woke up this morning and there was a puddle of water on the floor in front of freezer. Everything is defrosting, but it sounds like the freezer is still running
Oh dear. I think you need to find helpful neighbours to keep things frozen while ths is sorted out.
If the compressor is still running, there can be 2 causes for this.
#1 The compressor is not pumping, but vibrating (making more of a buzzing sound than normal).
This is a realatively quick fix needing just a component replacement.
#2 The refrigerant gas has escaped, so there is nothing to pump.
This is usually impossible to repair on domestic models due to construction methods.
If the compresor is just running normally, then this is what's happened I'm afraid.
Hopefully this information will assist you to take the right action.
