Question about Zanussi Refrigerators

Open Question

Have a Zanussi ZBB7266 Integrated fridge freezer. Freezer is working okay at -18 and can be adjusted to make it colder. Trouble is the fridge compartment is at +12 and can't do anything to make it cooler. Have checked the air regulator in the fridge and it is open. I have had a look at the evaporator in the top of the freezer and it is covered in ice. The fridge is making a constant quiet noise, but am unsure whether this is the fan working or not. Can anyone help as the unit is only 18 months old!!

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Kenmore Model # 596.735032.. Fridge is cool, Freezer is not freezing

After pulling the fridge away from the wall and removing the lower right hand panel I noticed that the compressor (big round black ball with copper tubing) was not turning on. I also noticed that there was a ticking or popping sound comming from it every couple of minutes or so. After doing some research online in numerouse forums I decided to try and replace the overheat relay that is attached to the compressor. It only took maybie five minutes at most to change it and the compressor is now working with nice cold air comming into the fridge and freezer. Hope this helps someone else with the same problem.

SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side

The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.

Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).

Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.

What temp should my admiral freezer be at it go,s from warmer to colder 1 to 10?


You need to put a freezer thermometer inside the cabinet.

It should be minus 18 Centigrade or 0 degrees Fahrenheit.

Start off at 5 on your dial and adjust daily until you reach -18/0

You can pick these up at Home Depot or Houseware stores.

Defrosted freezer and turned back on. freezer seems to work but not fridge. back wall of fridge feels warm


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Lg side by side refridgerator ice maker


you can adjust the control for the freezer side to a colder setting think of the freezer control as a door warmer setting door open farther colder setting door farther closed the fridge control is electric that runs the compresser can turn fridge down to creat more cooling freezer or set freezer to colder setting it is a balancing
act have actually closed freezer control to coldest setting and had items freeze in the fridge side where air from freezer first enters fridge a lower temp in freezer should help ice production

My refrigerator is not cold but the freezer is, what is wrong


check the temperature settings in the fridge. whether it's a slider or a wheel the freezer setting sounds okay but the fridge setting may need to be adjusted to a colder setting. If that doesn't help then you have a freon or a compressor problem and need to call the repairman.

OR.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

The dial in the Fridge has settings from 0-7. which is the number to get it colder, it is currently on 4 and the freezer is not freezing


The higher the number the colder it gets. But I think your problem might be something like dirty coils under the frig or the fan inside the freezer is not working. Let me know more info. ken
