Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Philips cyclic defrost 400L fridge, was moved twice in the space of a week. When it was switched on again it froze everything. Now, after a few days of settling down, it is still freezing everything in the fridge except the whats in the crisper. The temp setting is currently on .5. Is there anything else I can do to stop it freezing everything?

Since the temps on the display don't show correctly I'd assume something is wrong with that. If the temps are sending info out that the unit is OK and at proper temp (when it's not) then the compressor won't turn on because it thinks the fridge is cold enough. Soooo... I'd suspect that control board. It's item 48 on this diagram http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/SS10-2.gif

If you have a side by side model you need to look at the refrigerator compartment wall on the left of the bottom drawer and move the slide control to the warmer/fruit/vegitable setting instead of the meat setting.
I hope this helped. Please rate my help or ask for more help please. supertechks

Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.

We had the same issues with the water freezing and called a technician out. He added some extra insulation installed around the water lines inside the refrigerator and we also keep our frig at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, slightly above the manufacturers default setting. Hope this helps.

Where can I get a repair manual for a Hotpoint Fridge


Hi,

First of all, the model number you gave is not complete. But check you defrost system in the freezer, when the refer section stops cooling, your evaporator in the freezer is possibly full of ice and the fan won't move air through ice. When the refer sections fails to cool, check for a fan in the freezer. If it works, you have a defrost problem and is occurs every 3 - 5 days. The unit should defrost once or twice a day. Good Luck

My freezer doesn't keep ice cream frozen more than a couple of hours. Other foods are frozen, but some slightly 'soft' frozen. Up until a couple of weeks ago it would produce ice cubes regularly. Now if I...


YOUR DEFROST TIMER MAY BE BAD OR THE HEATERS ARE BAD. WHAT HAPPENS IS THE EVAPORATOR IS FROZE OVER WITH ICE AND CAN'T TRANSFER THE COLD . UNPLUG THE FRIDGE FOR A FEW HOURS (HAVE RAGS AND MOP READY) AND IT WILL WORK AGAIN TEMPORALLY . THE LESS YOU OPEN THE DOORS THE LONGER IT WILL LAST.. BACK IN THE DAY IT WAS CALLED DEFROSTING THE FRIDGE AND WAS DONE ONCE A MONTH OR SO

Fridge not staying cool, freezer still freezing


Try defrosting freezer, sometimes when the defrost thermostat fails it causes ice too build up behind the walls of the freezer then it restricts the air flow to the refer side. If it works after defrosting then you probably need to get a new defrost thermostat.

GE Fridge/Freezer Having to turn temp up just to keep it cold


From your comment. It's not that you have to defrost the parts, that's what they're called. "defrost timer", "defrost t-stat" and "heat element". Defrosting the whole fridge for a few days actually will clear the ice blockage if that's it but it will return in a couple weeks if the "defrost cycle" isn't doing its thing. A fridge typically goes into some form of "defrost cycle" to keep it "frost free". As an example, every 12 hours the compressor turns off and the evap. fan turns off then a heat element turns on to melt the light coating of ice on the "cooling coils". Once about 1/2 hour goes by the heating turns off and the cooling turns back on again. This repeats over and over to keep the ice from building up too much. If that cycle is broken, the ice will build and build till the whole coil is a block of ice. Then the air can't flow around it to provide cold air for the whole unit. It acts basically like putting a large block of ice in the freezer and keeping the doors closed... without a fan to move the cold air only the very lower portion of the freezer is cold, the rest is warm.
