Question about Ariston Technologies CBC96 Wine Cooler Refrigerator With Ice Box

The fridge is not cooling but the light turns on and the freezer is fine

I have an ariston fridge freezer and the fridge has stopped cooling but the fridge light is on and the freezer is working still. I think it maybe the compressor. How can I fix it? If it cannot be fixed is there a number I can phone to get another in the UK.

    I am having the same problem with my ariston fridge. Freezer on top model. I have actually pulled the back off the freezer a couple of times and the coils are all frosted up. Have tried defrosting with hairdryer and it works for a couple of weeks before frosting up again. So by the sounds of it it is the defrost timer or heater. Can anyone tell me where I can find these and how to check if they are working... Im tired of warm beer! :)

    i have an ariston fridge freezer with fridge on top and freezer below.

    The freezer works but the fridge does not the lights work but there is no cooling.

    they both run off a single compressor at the back im wondering if its the thermostat or if it could be something else.

    if you know what the problem could be or how to solve it any guidance would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Hi Lollipop, partially working fridge? A fridge either works or not, cold air is made in freezer then distributed to fridge via a vent. In your case WBM Series fridge, top mount freezer blows air down a vent (back centre of chiller compartment). A common fault with the WBM Series is both the PCB and Interface Panel (PCB beside compressor back of fridge, Interface is display panel front of fridge).
So if freezer is cold and fridge not, try a fan motor. If compressor doesn't work either comp is faulty or PCB has blown(has a burning smell).. Hope this helps you and maybe many other ppl.

American fridge/freezer - fridge stopped cooling, freezer side ok

Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......

Ariston fridge

Try to defrost the unit, if it wont work check the air vents if air is present. Check also if some of your stuff may be obstructing the air vent.

Most side by side and other models of refrigerator freezer combinations are of one basic design. The freezer section does the cooling for both compartments. The refrigerator section gets it cold air from the freezer compartment. Therefore check for frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment. If frost is present there you have a defrost problem and it is cutting off the air that cools the refrigerator section.

I think this problem may already be resolved in some manor because of the date of post. Posts should expire after an unreasonable time period.

Ariston Fridge not cooling - Frozen Coils

Try to check the noisy fan, slow rotation of fan can cause the icing evaporator. Unplug the unit and rotate the fan manually by your finger check if the fan is not misalign or not touching the fan frame. Or check if fan motor bearing is not worn out. Under charge of gas is also one of icing cause.
