Question about Frost Refrigerators
SOURCE: BEKO TZS490
AS A FRIDGE ENGINEER I HAVE COME ACROSS THIS PROBLEM BEFORE IT COULD BE A LOSS OF REFRIGERANT ALTHOUGH THIS WOULD STEADILY WORSEN IN USE,MORE LIKELY THERE IS A BLOCKAGE IN THE SYSTEM STOPPING THE REFRIGERANT REACHING ALL THE PIPEWORK THE CHEAPER FREEZERS USE THE SHELFS AS PART OF THE FREEZING SYSTEM.
THE ONLY SOLUTION IS A COMPRESSOR CHANGE AND REGAS (COSTLY IF NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY/GUARANTEE ETC)
IF FREEZER IS MORE THAN 5 YRS OLD BEST TO SCRAP IT UNFORTUNATELY..

FREEZERS SHOULD BE TEMP AT O /REFRIGERATOR SHOULD BE 40/FOR PERFECT OPERATION.1ST IS THE FAN RUNNING IN THE FREEZER/IF YES UNPLUG FOR 6-8 HOURS AND RETRY/IF NO UNPLUG THE FRIDGE AND REMOVE THE BACK PANEL OF THE FREEZER MAKE SURE THE FAN IS PLUGGED IN.IF SO PLUG IN THE FRIDGE AND SEE IF THE FAN IS TURNING.IF NOT YOU NEED A NEW FAN IF THE FRIDGE IS NEW MAKE THEM BRING YOU A REPLACEMENT FOR FREE.

Faulty Cold control (Temperature Control)
The cold control is a temperature actuated switch and should open when the set temperature has been achieved. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and all items in the fresh food section will begin to freeze.
If the control is not closing, the compressor and all fans will cease to operate. Check the control for continuity.
This is usually not a do it your selfer.

Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack
