SOURCE: Fridge freezer has stopped working

. The most common problem is a bad start relay on the compressor. In rare cases the compressor may be bad. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace the relay yourself for less than 50 dollars. You will need model and serial number off of the unit and order the part by those numbers. if the compressor is bad you will need to hire a good service company

SOURCE: HOTPOINT FFA70 FRIDGE FREEZER

I had this problem and it was fixed relatively easily. Get everything out of your fridge freezer and switch it off overnight to allow it to defrost.

In the bottom freezer compartment there is a panel behind the draws which you can remove but you will need a special tool from a DIY shop. Its like an allen key, but with a star shaped end.

When I got the panel off I found that the filament was covered thick with ice even though it had been off for hours. No wonder it wasn't working properly. I melted this with a hairdryer. You want to take your time with this as you could easily damage the freezer if you try chipping the ice out.

Freezer works perfectly now and is very quiet.

APM6855 Built in fridge freezer If Fridge is not cooling & freezer is ok then try a defrost by switching off for 24 hrs Then switch back on. it should be OK. If this does not work it is probably the door switch faulty , this should switch on the fan when door is closed. The fan is then controlled by thermostat sensor which switches fan off/on when required.

My fridge side is not cooling,but my freezer is freezing


seems like you have a defrost issue, with this unit, its more than likely the adaptive defrost control found in the upper right hand corner of the fridge. You have to take down the lights and control....
You can find your part on any of the Parts websites for around 75.00..
IMPERITIVE unplug the fridge before replacing the board..

Have a GE tfx28ppdabb and the frig side gets hot, defrosted the freezer but the problem comes back after a week


Is it an automatic self defrosting unit? If so, defrosting the freezer will cure your problem temporarily. When the defrost timer fails to defrost automatically, ice builds up again and plugs the chute between the freezer and the fridge and the fridge gets hot.....If this action is repeatable,(meaning you can manually defrost but it only lasts a few days) then for some reason, the automatic defrost timer is not working. It's either the timer itself or one of the fuses.....there is always the chance that the thermostat, which tells the timer when to turn on and off, is also defective, but most of the time, the defrost timer is the culprit. Check the fuses first, then the defrost timer.

I have a Maytag 3 door ,freezer on the bottom, for the last 3 years every few weeks the fridge looses its coldness and the freezer is ice cold also it it always on temperature 1, so I have to unplug it...


Either, the defrost timmer has had it, or the freezer defrost element has failed, the element is the most common cause of this type of problem. You have ice build-up in the freezer cores because it cant defrost, all frostfree units rely on cold air from the freezer to blow into the fridge, if the freezer cores become blocked, air can not pass to the fridge side. I bet you, if you left the unit off for 2 days to defrost totally,,,,with the doors open...then plugged it back in, it would work like new for 2 weeks.
Timmer or defrost element needs to be replaced...do not fall for the trick that the fridge mech. has to take it away, you tell him that this is the problem and you will save yourself ALOT of cash.

Dont forget to vote for the solution...regards Russ

Repeated ice over the coil


The defrost cycle is either failing to start (problem with defrost timer) or is not heating the defrost coil (most often defective defrost thermostat.)

When you defrosted did you remove the panel at the back of the freezer to defrost the drain hole for the defrosted water to drain out?

Fridge not staying cool, freezer still freezing


The defrost thermostat on the defrost heater is probably bad, it's a good place too start.

Fridge is warm, freezer works.


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Zanussi fridge freezer - fridge not working


The defrost cycle is not happening like it should, that's what causes the block of ice (and poor air flow). If you have all that defrosted look at the defrost bi-metal, it usually is a small round disk with a couple wires coming out of it and it's clipped on the coils. When it's cold enough, it passes electricity to the heat elements, when it gets hot enough it "opens" and kills power to the heat elements. If that is bad (swollen cracked or bloated) and not passing electricity to the elements that's the problem. Another item would be the defrost timer itself, if it doesn't work (no clock motor turning) then it will never go into defrost. And the last and usually least expected failure would be the heat element themselves not working
