    Fisher E522B - Basically problem started when the freezer started to ice up; first symptom
    was half inch thick slab of ice on freezer floor. I defrosted, and for afew
    weeks OK, but similar thing happened. Thought the kids were leaving the door
    open when getting ice etc. Also the were ise crystals forming on side of
    freezer and at back near fan. When heavily frozen up, no cold air getting to
    fridge. Could it be defrost program or as others mention the Fan?

    I have a fisher & paykel e402b fridge freezer. The fan recently packed up and was replaced, however the fan is still not working. Is there any cause for the fan not working? wires are not broken...freezer is working, just not pushing cold air around the fridge

ck the fans under neath and clean the coils as this the most common for your problem. . also ck the fan in freezer . it runs when the compressor is working . and if it not not enough cold .. ****

Fisher & Paykel active smart fridge keeps beeping for no apparent reason, while door closed

press the select button ( the button that you choose the temperature on the fridge and freezer) and check that the fan on both fridge and freezer are working.

Uneven cooling in fridge and annooying alarm every 10 hours!


if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.
