Fridge and freezer work great but always runs and blows cold air out the bottom


PLEASE TRY TO SWITCH OFF THE MAINS AND UNPLUG IT FOR 20 MINUTES. THEN TURN THE COOLER CONTROL THERMOSTAT TO MINIMUM BOTH IN THE FREEZER AND THE FRIDGE. THEN SWITCH IT ON AFTER 20 MINUTES. IT SHOULD BE FINE. THIS HAPPENS DURING WINTER.

I have a kelvernator fridge/ freezer and woke up this morning to find the freezer part still working but not the fridge part, why do u think this is ?


Hello,

The most common cause of that is a malfunction of the automatic defrost system. Do you see a bunch of frost on back wall of freezer? if yes it's not defrosting or perhaps the fan in the freezer that circulates air into fresh food compartment has failed,no frost build up if it's the fan, do you hear the fan?

39 ltr engle fridge freezer wont shut off when at temp


hi,

the temp should be around 35-40 in the fresh side and below freezing in the freezer. If the probe is positioned wrong then it may not shut off. Does the probe need to be in the freezer compartment?If the freon level is wrong then the freezer may not get cold enough to shut down the control tstat. The low side pressure should be around 5 PSI.
