This is a known problem, what is happening is the evaporator and air chanels in the freezer is getting froze up stopping air flow into the fridge.

a number of things can cause this, thermal fuse, defrost heater, gutter heater or simply the drain hole can be blocked up.

in my experiance this can be a fairly involved job and if your fridge is the older version there is a full kit you need to buy to sort this out.

my advise would be to use the 5 years parts gaurentee which comes with the fridge, think call out about £100 but what ever parts are needed is covered under this

sorry cant be of much more help

LEFT DOOR OPEN OF FREEZER. CLOSE3D DOOR FOR 24 HRS. nOW LIGHTS FLASHING ON SUPER COOL AND SUPER FREEZE.


You will need to unplug and defrost the fridge for a few hours then replug the power. Leaving the doors open allows moisture to freeze on the evaporator while compressor continues to run confusing the control board

My refrigerator wont work after laying it down to move it. What should I do?


I've done that before and there's no hope for it. Once you laid it down the freon got a air pocket in the compressor and it will no longer work. Guy from sears told me that laying them down ruins them.

What temp should my freezer be , also the fan in the top of the fridge stated making a noise when it stopped or started its cycle sounded like something was catching on the fans blades , then it stopped...


I like 0 to 10 Deg. F in the freezer.

As for the Fan. yes it could be ice or the fan blade hiting the shroud, sometimes the fan blade moves on the shaft and starts hiting the shroud.

It sounds like your defrost cycle has stopped working. unplug your fridge for 24 hours and let it defrost. plug it back after 24 hour and if it starts to cool in the fridge part at about 40 degrees F. you will have to replace one of three parts the Defrost Timer, Defrost Themo or Defrost Element. I hope this helps you.
