Indesit 2027 fridge freezer fault

Hello. The problem I have with this unit is that the freezer compartment is permanently on and the fridge compartment permanently off. There is a single thermostat whose control is located in the fridge compartment. If the thermostat is faulty I would expect bother compartments to be on or both off.
Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: No light in fridge compartment, Not freezing. Light in freezer co

Your door switch is bad.  When doors are opened, the fan stops.  No cooling.  When it closes, fan starts.  Bulb is just an indicator of no power to unit...probably burned out contact in switch.

try this,make sure you dont have anything blocking your blower in the freezer.if that is okay if you have seperate controls for the freezer and the fridge,try setting the frige setting lower and the freezer higher,this makes the blower work more in the freezer.hope it helps.

SOURCE: zanussi fridge compartment has stopped cooling but freezer is ok

How to check everything

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

I have an indesit IN C 265 AI fridge/freezer the problem relates to the freezer being too cold and continually frosting even with the control at the lowest possible setting, the fridge compartment seems to...

Hello there,
The problem with the refrigerator that is causing it to freeze continuously is simply because the defrost heater is not working. Have the defrost heater tested and replaced once found faulty.
Also you need to check the defrost timer and defrost thermostat to see if they are still in good condition. Once any component is found faulty, then you have to replace it with a new one.

It's from freezer fan which was disturbed to function due to over ice formation around freezer. It happens due to defrost cycling malfunctioned.

Not getting cold.but freezer is working fine

i am guessing you have a fost free unit. the way cold air gets to the fridge compartment is through a network of vents running from the freezer compartment if the fridge stops going into defrost then those vents build up with ice and stop the flow of cold air into the fridge compartment. so the fault is unit not going into defrost in 99% of cases its due to a blown defrost element in slight cases it can be the small fan in the freezer has stoped working so first check the fan is working. then just as you would test a fuse test the defrost element / s the element looks either like an electric stove element grey in color or a glass silinder however there located behind the thin plastic wall at the back of the freezer the least and last fault to cause this is a burnt out defrost timer if the fan is working test element if it/they are fine replace the defrost timer

hope this helps
best of luck for more help feel free to email

I have a zanussu fridge

Re. Zanussi ZK87/46EFS Fridge Freezer

The same symptom occurred in our fridge freezer. The fridge compartment warmed up whilst the freezer compartment continued to keep temperature.

The cause of our problem was diagnosed as a frozen sensor that controls a flap, that controls the flow of cold air from the freezer compartment up into the fridge compartment. We were advised to power off the fridge freezer (removing all food and trays from the freezer unit first), and to leave it to defrost for 24hrs. We needed to place a few towels on the floor of the freezer compartment to soak up the melt water. After 24hrs we followed the power up instructions in the manual (versions are available online if you have lost yours). Within a few minutes it was obvious that the fridge compartment was being cooled – Problem solved :)

Freezer side wont freeze

First thing to try is Powering off the FF at the mains supply and leaving it standing for 30 minutes. Make sure that you do not open any of the doors or touch any of the controls during this time. Then reconnect the power and wait for 30 to 60 minutes to see if the fault remains or is cured. Try completely defrosting the FF as despite common belief these units are not totally frost free.

If the Freezer and the Fridge are not cooling enough then check that the condenser is not iced up and that the fan is running correctly. These are located behind a panel in the lower half of the freezer at the rear and can be accessed from inside the freezer compartment.

In side by sides if the freezer side is working OK and the fridge side is not working correctly it means that air ducting from the condenser has iced up or the air vent from the freezing unit to the fridge compartment has stuck in the closed or partially closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be. If it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position and the fridge temperature will continue to fall and become the same as the freezer, thereby freezing the contents of the fridge compartment. It can also get stuck in another position so that if the temperature is adjusted on the front panel then nothing happens to the temperature in the fridge compartment. The vent, which is usually at the top of the fridge compartment on the side where it joins the freezer compartment, is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up. It can be come iced up by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail. If the sync motor and vent are working OK then there may be a fault with the fridge temperature sensor or main on board controller that will mean that the sensor or the controller will need replacing.
