Question about Zanussi ZX99 / 5 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Cleaning of Freezer cooling elements

I have a 4 year old Zanussi fridge freezer with the cooling elements underneath (& fan driven). I have to regularly clean these off as they get covered in dust & stuff. (If I don't, then the red warning lights are on & the over-temp bleeper sounds.) How can I clean off these elements ? Currently I can only clean off the first few "waves" & the rest are now becoming very blocked.

They make a "coil brush" that works just for getting into those hard to reach places. There are also vac attachments that have long skinny brush attachments for doing coils also. Although messy and time consuming, pulling the fridge out and blowing it with an air compressor type air chuck using about 80lbs of air pressure works to dislodge the hard to get to stuff. On some models that are really stuck because of cooking grease in the air coating the coils, etc. I have had to pull the fridge outside and actually pressure wash the coils with detergent to get them clean of greasy build up that causes the dust to stick like concrete.

FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool


Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan
installed.

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.


You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

Fridge is warm and freezer is cooler than normal


Possible bad defrost timer. Locate timer underneath the fridge and manually turn the knob. Element should come on and start defrosting. If defrosting starts then the timer is bad. Check also the element and thermostat.

Fridge on Fridge freezer not working


Ok there is a drain pan under the evap. coil under the fan that may be clogged and full of ice there is a 3/4" hole the water drains out of that needs cleared if there is a puddle of ice over it , the ice will also effect the airflow traveling down the duct to the fresh food section of the unit.
If there is no ice puddle at the bottom of the refrigerator then make sure the unit is cooling well by making sure it has been running for 10 min. or so and checking the coil in the freezer , it should have a small layer of frost on it showing its getting cold the whole way through it. Let me know how this works.
