SOURCE: 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.

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).

The F24 error show that the sensor in the ice maker is out of normal ranges. The usual fix is to replace the sensor in the ice maker.  Also worth checking it to see is the water to the ice maker has frozen up in the value (switch the fridge off for a day). If the error still exists after that you will need to replace the ice maker sensor. You have a 2 year warranty on these parts so the fix should be free.

SOURCE: Fisher and Paykel N500B fridge freezer. Freezer not freezing

I had a similar problem on the same model. Ice creams were soft & frozen food not ice cold. I opened the freezer. Removed the food & noticed the evaporator fan at the back was not turning. This is the likely cause of poor cooling in the freezer. I got it running by turning the fan with a screwdriver but replaced the fan soon after!!!

Yes ur correct. the fan can be accessed by removing the back panel wall from ur freezer dept. sometimes u will have to remove the bottom panel first a couple screws are all it takes

Defrost Cycle on Fisher and paykel RF610


Malcolm, if you are indeed getting an F20 fault, this is a problem with the flapper heater. The flapper heater current is low.

First, Check the JST in-line connections for the flapper heater.
Second, Check the resistance of the heater. If open circuit, replace the heater.

Fisher paykel French door fridge shows F20 error everylme the door is opened - it beeps


F20 does not stand for 20 degrees Fahrenheit you pleb. It is a fault code. Your fridge probably beeps 20 time when you open the door and then stops. To fix is simple and takes 5 mins. Remove the top left hand hinge cover and you will find a broken wire. Just switch off the fridge and then connect the wires together with a auto12v type connecter or solder it and use shrink tube. Switch the fridge back on and hay presto, you can fill your fridge to the max 3 times over with the money you just saved. It will happen again as the wiring loom they fit is well and not flexible. Use silicone insulated wire from J-car or similar and replace from the plug and reconnect inside the door where the wires don\'t bend. Hope this helps you.

Look on pages 28 and 29 for instructions on how to change the filter
