SOURCE: freezer is icing up and

Hi miss_i2000

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber

Your question is: freezer is icing up and fridge temperature has risen to 10 from 5. Also alot of condensation in the fridge and the fan doesnt seem to be working in fridge. Correct temperature on freezer -18 but ice. new frost free fridge freezer bought 1.5 weeks ago

This is no problem for you. You are under warranty and as long as you have not tryed to repair it yourself you are completely covered. Look for the manufacturer's warranty phone number on the paper work that came with it or call the sales man, he will be happy to track that down for you because he wants repeat business.
If you bought it used the only answer is to return it. You could get a local pro to repair it at yuor own expense but I wouldn't recomend that for a frige only 1.5 weeks old!

Hi.

F2 indicates that there is a defrost problem. For this reason, if you turn off and defrost the fridge manually, the unit will work for a while after doing defrost.

You said that you replaced temperature sensor. What is called temperature sensor is different from the defrost thermostat, which is one of the parts involved in the fault.

If there is no defrost cycle, or if defrost is insufficient, problem is usually the defrost thermostat. The thermostat is located behind the freezer section rear wall, where the evaporator resides. To access it you need to remove frozen food and undo screws holding the back panel. The thermostat is a metal cylinder shaped object connected to two wires and clipped to the evaporator. The thermostat can be tested using a multimeter set on impedance. If reading impedance at room temp. on the thermostat contacts is infinity (circuit open),then the thermostat must be replaced. In the same way is tested the defrost heater. Check also that evaporator fan is starting.

If parts in the evaporator section are working, then the problem can be the defrost timer, which starts the defrost once every 8 hours.

Here how thermostat looks like. In same page read also the repair instructions from other users.

Regards.

Ginko.

The display stopped showing temps and displayed a "6". The actual temperatures dropped to freezing. I unplugged the unit a few times for up to 2 days but the same issue developed.


Whirlpool Refrigerator Error Code: Flashing 6 on the fridge display
Condition: The 6th Sense technology is activated - If you put warm food in the refrigerator or leave the door open, the 6th Sense technology kicks on to return the refrigerator to the set temperature. The flashing 6 should go away once it gets back to the right temperature.

The temp says 14 and 8 but should be -21 and 3? Can anyone help


Controlling the Freezer temperature
The freezer temperature can be set between -14°C (8°F) and -25?C (-14°F) to suit your particular needs. Press the freezer button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the temperature display. Keep in mind that foods like ice cream may melt at -16?C (4°F). The temperature display will move sequentially from -14°C (8°F) and -25?C (-14°F). When the display reaches -14?C (8°F), it will begin again at -25?C (-14°F). Five seconds after the new temperature is set the display will again show the actual current
freezer temperature. However, this number will change as the Freezer adjusts to the new temperature. The top and bottom guards in the freezer of this model are the two star sections, so the
temperature in two star sections are slightly higher than other freezer compartment.

Controlling the Fridge temperature
The refrigerator temperature can be set between 7?C (45°F) and 1?C (34°F) to suit your particular needs. Press the fridge button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the
temperature display. The temperature control process for the Fridge works just like the Freezer process. Press the fridge button to set your desired temperature. After a few seconds, the Fridge will
begin tracking towards the newly set temperature. This will be reflected in the digital display. The temperature of the freezer or the refrigerator may rise from opening the doors too frequently, or if a large amount of warm or hot food is placed in either side. This may cause the digital display to blink. Once the freezer and refrigerator return to their normal set temperatures the blinking will stop.
If the blinking continues, you may need to "reset" the refrigerator. Try unplugging the appliance, wait about 10 minutes and then plug back in.

The refrigerator does not work at all or it does not chill sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct
temperature? Try setting it to a lower temperature.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located too near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping air from circulating?

Need a wiring diagram for Delphi delco am FM CD player from a 2004 Chevy malibu


According to http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CDMQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aircommand.com.au%2Fdocs%2FIbisTechManual.pdf&ei=29JPVfO8NYu9sAWE_YGQAg&usg=AFQjCNEPb_nNaXQsRrD2ZphXVLpRYwECGQ&sig2=cHErjmhdOfyCsep25gpmfw

E4: Indicates lack of refrigerant, or the compressor is not running, or the thermistor is out of calibration. Action: Check that the compressor is running by listening. If it is apparent that the compressor is running, then check the temperature difference across the evaporator. i.e. Measure temperature of return air at inlet filters and measure temp. of discharge air at grilles. This temp diff. should be 14 to 18 C. with fan on hi speed. If temp diff. is less than this, suspect lack of refrigerant. Fit a suction gauge to access valve at rear of unit. See fig 12. On a 35C outside temp. then suction should be 380 to 450Kpa.
Page 2
Action (continued) If the temp. differential is 14C or more but unit goes out on E4 after approx. 30 minutes, please check the actual thermistor temperature by the following procedure. With the inside fan running on Hi. Press Temp down button followed by the mode button. Hold them both in for approx 5 seconds. The amber Lock LED illuminates. Now press the Temp down button and the Sleep button Together for about 1 second. The green Med speed will be Flashing. The display is now reading the temp of the outside coil. Now press the Temp up button once. The Green Hi speed will be flashing. The display is now reading the temp. of the inside coil. This temp will usually be from 5 to 12 C. If it is above 24C. It is another indication of lack of refigerant. If on the other hand the air on /air off differential is 14C or greater then suspect the thermistor itself to be out of calibration. Check the thermistor as per an E1,E2 or E3 failure by measuring its resistance. See fig 19 and referring to table 1.

Why my fridge freezer keeps beeping four hort beeps


Temperature alarm
If the temperature becomes too warm, an alarm will sound and the temperature display will flash. The temperature the appliance is set at will determine when the alarm is triggered.

  • - whenevertoomuchwarmairflows into the appliance, for example when food is being loaded, re-arranged, or taken out.
  • - wheneverlargeamountsoffoodare being frozen at once.

    If the appliance door is left open for longer than approx. 60 seconds, the alarm signal will sound.

Switching the alarm system ON
The alarm system is always active. It does not need to be switched on manually.
Switching the alarm OFF early
Once the set temperature has been reached in the freezer section, the alarm signal stops and the temperature display stops blinking. If the alarm signal bothers you, it can be switched off early.
^ Press the alarm off button. The alarm signal will stop. The temperature display will continue to blink until the set temperature has been reached. The display then stops blinking, and shows a steady reading. At this point, the alarm system is ready again if needed.

Bosch Fridge Freezer Classixx


This button is the winter/summer setting.
If you switch it on so as the red mark shows this is set for the summer setting.
What it does is allows the interior light to come on very dimly when you shut the door.
The fridge then thinks it is too warm and starts to cool down more, designed for when the ambient temperature is high.
Hope this helps
