Question about Daewoo Refrigerators

1 Answer

Hi, During the recent Brisbane floods, my Daewoo fridge/freezer was turned off for 8days, as we had no power. Since power has been resumed, the freezer does NOT freeze the top 3 shelves in the freezer....Any suggestions?

You poor fridge has developed a refrigerant leak.
While the fridge was working before the flood the refrigerant was cold and din't escape. While it was off the metal expanded, opened up the leak and let most of the refrigerant escape.
You will need an ARCTICK approved appliance repairer to fix that problem.

My daewoo fridge freezer is freezing food I the fridge on every shelf


Turn down the cold control there can be 1 or 2 if 2 one is main electronic the other just a baffle that controls how much cold air in freezer is allowed into fridge that is be pushed by the fan located in freezer. Cold is only made in freezer then does a circular tour as it leaves cold in freezer moves top 2 bottom then as its warmed it enters freezer to do it all over again . Adjust baffle and or control in this unit it may show 0 or off but there seems to be a lot of movement available before it does turn fridge off. Ive had on a few occasions had how the shelf's are arranged deflect the or mess with the cold airs intended route.

My Daewoo FRS2021IAL has a warm fridge


5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked. if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes: 1. low refrigerant 2. no fan 3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals 4. the condensate drain tube is clogged if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s). no air, no fan. Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.
