Question about Miele KFN8762SDED Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

Belling Bottom Freezer / Model; BK3593 / Type; HZS 3366

Hi Philtac, when purchased the house we purchased the appliances and we were not provided with manuals etc. I have been trying to sort out what is the best setting for the fridge e.g. 0 to 7 and whether or not the -/0 switch should be at - or 0...

Also, the freezer seems to frost up fairly rapidly and I am not sure if it is a frost-free unit or not as I do not have a manual. I would 'assume' that it is as most freezers now a days are...aren't they?

I also have ice drops formed on the back wall of the refridgerator. I again am 'assuming' that the fridge is approx. 7.5 yrs old.

Many thanks,

SOURCE: Back of Fridge icing up

If the fan is running you more than likely have a defrost problem.
look at the back wall of the freezer section if it is frosted up. it's not defrosting.
There three components in this system. The defrost heater, the defrost termination stat., and the defrost timer. Newer refrigerators do not have a timer per say it is build into a electronic board usually mounted on the back of the refrigerator under a metal plate. The termination stat is the cheapest part @ $ 25.00. The heater should run @ 50.00 to 70.00. The board could be as much as 200.00 or more. If the refrigerator is over 10 years old you may wish to look into getting a replacement. Appliances are designed to start failing after 10 years old.
My opinion.
If you unplug the refrigerator let it defrost then plug it back in. it will work properly about 3 days before it frosts back up.

SOURCE: freezer is icing up and

Hi miss_i2000

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber

Your question is: freezer is icing up and fridge temperature has risen to 10 from 5. Also alot of condensation in the fridge and the fan doesnt seem to be working in fridge. Correct temperature on freezer -18 but ice. new frost free fridge freezer bought 1.5 weeks ago

This is no problem for you. You are under warranty and as long as you have not tryed to repair it yourself you are completely covered. Look for the manufacturer's warranty phone number on the paper work that came with it or call the sales man, he will be happy to track that down for you because he wants repeat business.
If you bought it used the only answer is to return it. You could get a local pro to repair it at yuor own expense but I wouldn't recomend that for a frige only 1.5 weeks old!

Call Service. 1-800-999-1360 (US) or the Canadian number. Most likely the circulation fan and/or damper flap could be out of whack.

F2 indicates that there is a defrost problem. For this reason, if you turn off and defrost the fridge manually, the unit will work for a while after doing defrost.

You said that you replaced temperature sensor. What is called temperature sensor is different from the defrost thermostat, which is one of the parts involved in the fault.

If there is no defrost cycle, or if defrost is insufficient, problem is usually the defrost thermostat. The thermostat is located behind the freezer section rear wall, where the evaporator resides. To access it you need to remove frozen food and undo screws holding the back panel. The thermostat is a metal cylinder shaped object connected to two wires and clipped to the evaporator. The thermostat can be tested using a multimeter set on impedance. If reading impedance at room temp. on the thermostat contacts is infinity (circuit open),then the thermostat must be replaced. In the same way is tested the defrost heater. Check also that evaporator fan is starting.

If parts in the evaporator section are working, then the problem can be the defrost timer, which starts the defrost once every 8 hours.

Here how thermostat looks like. In same page read also the repair instructions from other users.

Need to know how to light the pilot. This is a year old house & builder did not leave the manual

Hi Alice:

Don't know whereyou are, but with a 1 year old appliance, you should have the manual.
Your local authorithy (Building Official at City Hall) should be able to access your property file and give you the info you need to be able to contact the appliance supplier (or builder) so that you can get the proper manual.
Seriously, the Builder has a safety obligation to provide that information.

And, you as the purchaser, have a right to expect it.

Please contact your local authority.

This is a link to the Sears parts website and they frequently will have manuals that you can download for different appliances. You will need the model number so that you can put it into their search engine. Hope this helps!

Where is you nearest outlet? I want to purchase Gas Valve coil? My address is 4945 N Avers,Chicago, IL 60625 My T # is 773-463-1055 Name Wilbur

Hi Wilbur,

The purpose of this site is to help you help yourself. Whether it is to answer a "how to" questions or simply trying to get a copy of a manual or locating a replacement part; when attempting a repair on your own. FixYa does not sell parts or have service technicians to send to your home. There are technicians here that answer questions about all different subjects both for free and for a small fee.

The model number you provided is for an electric dryer, so you must have copied it wrong. If you need help locating a part, provide the appliance manufacturer's name and model number along with the part's name, description, size, color, material (plastic, metal, etc.) if electric or not, etc. The more info you provide, the more accurate the replies will be.

In the mean time, you might find a source for your parts from one of these online sellers:

If you'd prefer to shop at a store instead of over the internet, you'll find that most Sears stores can get parts for major appliances. You can also check this link for a list of appliance stores in and around your neighborhood. Many appliance stores all sell parts.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply "4 thumbs up" Thanks!

Historically, how long should this dryer last? We purchased our home (dryer included) 20 years ago.

Depends on the dryer and the usage.. I know that dose not help. Dryers especially the old ones are very simple appliances. If you are having problems you can purchase a repair manual at almost any appliance parts house. In 40 years I have never owned a new dryer...

Ilost it and would like to have it for future reference. How may I obtain the instruction manual? thank you

Here's the link the Cuisinart web site with the free downloadable manual for your coffee maker.

Print or save a copy on your computer, so you'll have it for future reference. I have made a folder on my PC labeled "House" and in it sub-folders with Kitchen Appliances, Outdoor Equipment, etc., in which I keep all my pdf's and other pertinent info for my appliances and purchases. Makes it great for filing all the manuals without having to print them out and take up space in a file cabinet, etc.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Nokia 5310 is lost .how to lock imei?


Thanks for using fixya!

You need to contact your mobile provider and ask them for an imei lock. They'd probably ask you for some sort of proof that the phone you want to lock is really yours. (The box for your phone with the imei sticker, purchase receipt etc.)

I hope you get justice for your lost phone.
Have a great day.
