Question about Fisher and Paykel E522BRX Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

My N500B fridge freezes fruit and veges on anything but the top shelf no matter what the temperature setting. The fuller the fridge the worse the probelm. We now have it set at 2 as this works best without freezing the other shelves. It is quite cold on the bottem shelf (above vege bins) and much warmer at the top. Also, it seems to dry the fruit and veges out on the top shelf. It is 17 years old. Cheers Lynn and Struan

Time for a new one. It will be costing you a small fortune to run compared to the newer fridges.

SOURCE: Fridge Leak

We fixed the leak by putting a pipe cleaner down the hole inside the fridge, at the back. This cleared the tube as it had gunk and grime blocking it. Now the water can run freely down the tube and into the drip tray which is at the back of the fridge above the motor.

SOURCE: F & P Fridge/Freezer Model N395B freezing under vege bins

While staying with a friend that had this problem we assaulted the fridge. Pulling everything we could apart. After finding this link http://www.stokes-aus.com.au/StokesAP/Manufacturer_Info/FP/FRIDGES/517579%20%20Series%20R%20N308R,308XR,325TR,369BR,375TR,395BR,400HR,4.pdf which had a parts list similar to the fridge we had. Pulled out the Defrost timer paragon located next to the compressor. After giving it a good shake it started making ticking sounds again. It appears that it is semi-faulty in our case and had stopped working.

SOURCE: Temprature control

I suggest turn it to lower temperature, so that water won't drip down. You can get rid of the hardness by keeping those things out of the unit for about half an hour before using, so that it may lose some coldness and become soft.

Normally this is caused by the evaporator drain being clogged with frozen water or other particles and needs to be cleaned.also need to make sure that the defroster is not on at the same time it is in a cooling mode

Freezing bottle water on top self and door and foo on shelf


I'm guessing you mean in the fridge, if freezing in the freezer you'd have no issue. Look inside fridge 7sually on back wall or ceiling, there will be a dial to adjust the temperature of your fridge, gradually set warmer until freezing food issues stop.

Everything on top shelf of fridge freezes even on lowest temperature


you should send model number,if you have a damper control in your model most likely this is the problem,all that happens is cold air blows over from the freezer from the evaporator fan and blows through the top section of the fridge side,if the damper door isn't closing all the way it will cause freezing in the fridge section.

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
Freezer on Top Models
First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.
