Question about Fisher and Paykel Refrigerators

Open Question

Fisher and Paykel N325T Fridge - plastic seal inside rear of freezer - which extends around the top and sides of the rear metal panel and between this and the sides of the fridge - has come away 90%. I have tried to push it back into place but it is very hard and inflexible and does not remain in place. Where it remains attached it is firm - no idea how it is kept in place as there doesn't seem to be a lip or adhesive. I believe it effects the ability of the freezer to do it's automatic defrosting and perhaps means the fridge needs to work overtime to keep cool. I have searched Fixya and googled solutions with no result thus far. Can you purchase replacement seals or preferably somehow remove, soften and reattach the one I have? This is quite an old fridge (perhaps 12 years old or more) but it works perfectly and looks fine - does the job for me anyway! Many thanks in advance for any suggestions or solutions. Fiona

SOURCE: freezer works but fridge remains warm.

The same fan that circulates air in the freezer also blows air in to the fridge. If you open the freezer door and hold the door switch closed you should hear the fan running. If not you have a failed motor or motor control. Look at the back wall of the freezer section and see if there is a heavy frost build up. If so. you have a defrost system problem. Please post back with what you find and with the complete model number and I will try to walk you through the steps of checking everything.
Thanks/Mike

SOURCE: Ice & water dripping in refrigerator

hi , roger here i am a maintenance tech for an apartment complex that just happens to have whirlpool appliances. the way i see it is the most likely problem you have is a clogged drain. if you push the refrigerator out where you can access the back of it you will see a plastic hose that runs from about the middle of the fridge down to the bottom and then dumps into a pan that sits on the top of the compresser. the easiest thing to do is to remove the hose from the pan and blow hard through it or hook an air nozzle from a compresser and blow through it . it should take care of it. also try to avoid turning the fridge up on its max settings. hope this helps.

ok your defrost drain is frozen take the back panel off in the freezer section under the coils you will see a silver pan if its frozen it will be a block of ice you have to remove the ice then make sure the drain and tube are clear all the way to the pan at the bottom you should see the plastic tube on the back of the unit in the center over time algae can grow in the tube blocking it drying the unit will help but soon as it defrosts the tube fill up again and the problem reoccurs you kinda got to snake it out so to speak.the best way to deal with it is to go to lowes or home depot and get a eurka 302 enviro hand held steamer an investment but a great product to have around the house cost about 40 bucks but 1000s of uses

SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side

The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.

Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).

Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.

Not sure where to put metal piece


this is a long silver piece? it fits behind the plastic back panel of the freezer, the 'clover' shaped holes go onto a little plastic nib on the back of the freezer.it prevents heat from melting the back panel.

I have a fisher & paykel n325t fridge. can not get the correct temperature. not cold enough.what should te dial be set at?


if your refrigerator had 7 postions you would set it to 4 check this for me though remove the rear panel in your freezer and assure that you dont have a ice build up on the inside this happens when you start getting a defrost problem also assure when you remove that rear panel that the fan is working the fan blows the cold air into the refigerator side also if youor refrigerator had 4 postions you would set it on 2 send me your model number and check out to see if your starting to get a defrost problem and well go from there thanks again

if you have an ice build up use a hair dryer to melt the ice this is a temporary fix until we can solve if it does have have a defrost problem or not

My fridge (E440T but I believe the E522B is similar) had a broken fan wire and i had to pull off the rear panel and re-solder a wire. I created a document for others to follow that shows the rear panel removal if interested at http://www.accentis.com.au/downloads/misc/How I fixed my Fisher and Paykel Fridge Active Smart Fridge.pdf

Thanks to all postings on this site - it really helped a lot.

Fisher Paykel Fridge Freezer


I have a Fisher and Paykel E442B upside down, which is a very similar model, and I just fixed the same problem (temperature was around -4C even though I set the fridge temperature as warm as possible).

The cause of my problem was excessive ice build up on the side of the evaporator coil (which is in the back of the freezer compartment behind the rear plastic panel). I had the same problem around a year or so ago, so I expect it to be a regular occurence. To defrost the coil, I removed all the drawers in the freezer, and the plastic insert by pulling out the bottom of the panel out and rotating it upwards until it released at the top. There are a couple of snap-in tabs holding the panel in, so with a bit of pulling they released. The tabs are either side of the slot at the bottom of the panel.

b3aa35d.jpg
I then supported the panel horizontally on the top shelf so that I didn't have to disconnect the thermostat wire and the circulating fan wire.
52de81a.jpg With a small fan heater set on low, aimed roughly at the ice buildup on the left hand side of the evaporator coil, I defrosted the ice built up. This took around 2 hours or so. Then put it all back together and it worked fine.

I'm not sure why the ice build up on the side caused the problem, but presumably it interferes with the proper flow of cold air to the fridge compartment.

If you don't seem to have ice build up like I did, then it could be a thermostat problem, or a fan problem (a symptom of which would be fridge being colder at the bottom than at the top).

We have a fisher and paykel fridge and freezer. The freezer section is at the bottom and it has started leaking around the bottom and I've noticed the bottom of the freezer becomes very icy very quickly. ...


not the seals. the drain is blocked. take the rear panel off inside the freezer and yoy will probably see an ice build up at the bottom. melt off with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely. if you have ice build up all over the pipework, then you have a defrost system fault and get back to me
