I had this happen with my fridge when the door was open for awhile when I was cleaning the inside. I did what you did, clean everything behind it. Pay particular attention to the circuit boards, there may be reset buttons in that area. Then unplug the freezer for 10 minutes (make sure it's for a FULL 10 minutes) then plug it back in and try it.
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper)
between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through
it.There is a flap you adjust with the
fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the
fridge temp. The problem could be the electronic control if
you have one or the mechanical linkages.
Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.
You said, You have a zanussi fridge freezer combination, it is a
frost free model, And you're developing lots of frost in the freezer
which never used to happen
and the fridge is not getting cold, some condensation does appear
inside the fridge, it is 2years old.
Frost could mean a few things.
Is the freezer cold but the fridge not?
If so the freezer may be so full that the articles are covering the air
vents in the back that share the cold air with the fridge.
I've have seen the freezers packed to the hilt!
More things to check.
Is the condenser in the back or under the front of the fridge. If it
is under the front of the fridge you must remove the plastic grill`(The
condenser is the thin black metal tubing that runs back and forth to
make up your condenser). This needs to be free of dust and have air
passing over and through it!
they sell refrigerator brushes for this at the hardware store.
I have had customers that never ran the brush under there ever and had 1 to 2 inches of dust and lint
under there between the tubes.After a few hours it was cool the next day it was cold!
The freon level pressure should be checked in case you have a leak.
The thermostat may be bad.
Let me know what works for you.
Please remember to leave a rating!
compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's
on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it
is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still
not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of
several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified
appliance repair technician for further help.
If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:
