What buttons control my scandinova freezer


Not sure but look for a setting or options or menu item. If you can adjust it then it would be under such a function button. On my Whirpool Gold the call it "options". Mostly you can adjust temperature. I leave it at zero but my no frost Chest freezer I lowered 3 degrees to -3 F.

The top half of the freezer does not work


I have a Scandinova chest freezer and the left hand side froze, but not the right side, because the compressor in the box under the right side of the freezer was getting so hot, a small amount of heat was conducting back through into the right side of the freezer and preventing anything on that side from freezing!
I solved this problem by running the compressor outside of the of the freezer box, by taking the air vent off, unbolting the compressor and then pulling out by about 20cm and running it from there.

My scandinova freezer is gradually warming up. The power is ok and I have made sure the door is closed but it just keeps warming up.


Check the coils and see if there is ice built up on them. If there is you need a new deftost module

Kenmore Chest Freezer C675-18012-1G purchased april 2000


Average freezers last for several years, usually 10 or more. The compressor should not run all of the time, maybe less than 10 to 20 percent of the time if it is working properly. Not sure what you mean by the bipass, some freezer have a manual defrost, and in this mode it will not cool. Insure the location where you have the freezer allows for ample air circulation, sometimes folks put them in little spaces that prevent air circulation to the condensing/compressor unit and they overheat and do not work well and fail very quickly.

Scandinova fridge freezer. Fridge works, but the lower freezer section only freezes when on fast freeze. Any ideas? We live in Australia but the unit was purchased in the UK. Do you know in which country...


Hi,
When on fast freeze the freezer thermostat is by-passed and current sent directly to cooling gas compressor. I suggest the freezer thermostat is knackered, fitting a new one isn't too difficult, that is if you can get your hands on one out there !!!!

Unfortunately I don't know where Scandinova are made, or more to the point IF they are still in production but, some replica spares are to be had.

Good luck.

Freezer runs all the time


I don't have enough information. Use a freezer thermometer and check the temp. If below 0 probably a bad thermostat. Sides getting hot is normal. Thats how it gets rid of the heat from inside. In the summer a freezer can run over 80% of the time. Again this is normal. Another thing to check is the gasket around the door. See if it is worn or torn and is sealing properly. If there are condensor coils under neath clean them check to see if the fan under there is working when compressor is running. (Not all freezers have coils underneath. Some have them in back, Smaller units just use the side of the cabinet.)
