Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Hi there, My fisher and Paykell N249T fridge is working fine but the freezer part seems to be playing up. Icing over on the bottom and not freezing food contents in the freezer. Does this sound like a thermostat ? Do the fridge and freezer share the same thermostat and can I replace it myself as although cosmetically excellent the fridge is only worth about $150 second hand. I can buy a thermostat online for $16 Thanks a lot Jenny

Hello.
It sounds like a ventilation issue. Check all the vents leading into the freezer and see if there are any fans located inside them, also make sure no food items are blocking them. Do this while holding the door switch in as some models turn these fans off when the door is open. Also make sure the door seal of the freezer is closing correctly, a small opening can affect the freezers performance. I do not believe it is a thermostat issue but if the vents are clear and the issue remains then it could be.
I hope this sheds some light on the issue. Regards GM

The thermistor sets the defrost cycle. Always go with the cheapest solution first but also ohm out your heater that could be the issue also.

I was not able to find a manual for your model; perhaps the company has not posted going back this far. Your model seems to be available on the resale market in Australia. If your model is not from Australia, vist the following site http://www.fisherpaykel.com.au/customercare/userguide/ and in the bottom of the webpage select the country the refrigerator was purchased. verify your model number and then go to Customer Care > Find A User Guide. Use the search fields to find your User Guide; if you leave the model number blank and select rerfigertaor you wil get a selection of all the available User Guides for refrigerators.

The Fisher and Paykel site seemed to only has one User Guide for all their refrigeration model but it does not list as applicable for the N249T. See here: http://www.fisherpaykel.com//admin/pdfs//pdf_usecares/837186-Ref_Freezer-UG_NZ-AU-UK-PAC.pdf

However on page 18 it does describe the Temperature Control:

1 is for the warmest setting

7 is for the coldest setting

The Problem Solving Section on page 29 advises that when food is freezing in the refrigerator the temperature setting is not correct or food is placed directly in front of air outlets.

If the unit is not shutting off when the desired temperature is reached there may be a problem with the thermostat.

Hope this is of some assistance.

Freezer icing up.......fridge doesn't work.


I have the same problem with this stupid samsung RS 2630. Check the defrost sensor that is behind the ice maker box and seems most likely the cause. If this is the fridge and model number, what you need is part No. DA3200006Q. This link from UK will also help you in many ways.
