Uline 1175rb under counter fridge. Light says 'OFF' but the on off switch won't power it on.

Sounds like the switch is faulty, but the indicator light circuit works. Get behind it and test it with a multimeter. https://www.google.com/search?q=Uline+1175rb+under+counter+fridge+not+working ..

Strafoam piece between crisper drawers and back of fridge is it supposed to be there?

If it is just held there with stickytape or wedged in then no, it would be part of the packing to stop things moving around during shipping. It would restrict the air flow inside the fridge and should be removed.

Coils in freezer compartment have iced up to the point the fan has become noisy and eventually stopped

Most likely cause is the defrost element burning out, which is a common problem. If you are technically minded and have a multimeter then after defrosting it you can open the back of the freezer and test the element. On many brands it looks like a oven element and runs along directly under the fins of the evaporator in the back of the freezer. You can just see it in the middle bottom of the evaporator in this photo. It runs along the bottom and up each side. The pink wires run to each end of it. With this one you would open the little plastic box the pink wires run into, disconnect the plug inside, and then test continuity of the pink wires. Expect a reading of a couple of hundred ohms or so if it is good, open circuit if bad. Naturally unplug the device from the power point first and do not do any unlicenced electrical work.

I have mistakenly left my DEFY (double sided fridge) freezer door opened overnight and now the display is constantly flashing with a red light. What can I do to restore my freezer?

You'll just need to keep the door closed for the next 5-6 hours for it to reach a desired freezer temp setting maybe a little longer. Patience is the key. :)

Water in the bottom of freezer.

Common cause is a blocked drain. It is the drain that takes away the melt water when the automatic defrost kicks in. If the drain is blocked the water runs into the freezer area, then re-freezes when the defrost cycle finishes. Unfortunately the drain is not easy to get to. It is directly beneath the evaporator which is the aluminium thing with fins behind the rear panel of the freezer section. You have to remove the rear panel of the freezer so you can check the drain. It often gets a little bit of plastic or some food in it and blocks up. If you cannot get into the back of the freezer you can find the pipe at the rear of the refrigerator. It will run into the plastic dish that sits on top of the compressor, or into a tray with coils of piping in it beside the compressor. You can get something long and flexible, such as one of those flexible "stretch wire" curtain rods, and push it up the pipe all the way and try to clear the blockage. Unfortunately not as effective as checking from the top and the pipe may re-block.

Fisher & Paykel E442B upside down fridge need to remove side and rear panels from freezer section

To remove the side and rear panels from the freezer section of your Fisher & Paykel E442B upside down refrigerator, you should first ensure that the fridge is unplugged from the power source.
  1. Begin by locating the panel fasteners. These are typically located on the side and rear panels of the freezer section and may be screws or clips.
  2. Use a screwdriver or other appropriate tool to loosen and remove the fasteners. Be careful not to damage the panels or the fridge.
  3. Once the fasteners are removed, the side and rear panels should be able to be carefully lifted off the freezer section.
  4. If there are any other attachments or mechanisms that are holding the panels in place, locate and remove them.
  5. Carefully place the panels aside and you will be able to access the freezer compartment.
Please note that this is general instructions and your specific model may have slight variations, please refer to the manufacturer manual or contact them for specific instructions.

No cooling and high pitched noise from KitchenAid fridge

  1. Check if the fridge is level. If not, adjust the leveling legs.
  2. Verify that the condenser coils are clean and free of obstructions.
  3. Check the temperature settings and adjust if needed.
  4. Ensure that the evaporator fan is working properly and not obstructed.
  5. Check the condenser fan for proper operation.
  6. If the high-pitched noise persists, it could be a sign of a failed fan motor or other mechanical issue, and a professional repair may be necessary.

One month old True T-23 not cooling to set temperature. Display is unlocked and set temp is 36 degrees but fridge is continually at 57 degrees

It's possible that the issue may be with the thermostat or the compressor. If the thermostat is not working properly, it may not be regulating the temperature correctly. Similarly, if the compressor is not working properly, it may not be able to cool the fridge down to the desired temperature. It's best to have a professional take a look and diagnose the issue. Another possible cause is the refrigerant levels, if the refrigerant is low this can cause the compressor not being able to cool the fridge properly and will need to be refilled by a professional.

I am hearing a buzzing and crackling sound from the back of fridge.

That sounds like it is going through the Defrost Cycle. The noise is the defrost timer / relay (buzzing) and the heater cracking ice and the aluminium evaporator expanding. If it doesn't stop in a half hour, you have a problem.

Zanussi ZX97/5SI fridge/freezer. Fridge part no

If the fridge part of your Zanussi ZX97/5SI fridge/freezer is no longer keeping cool, while the freezer part is still working fine, there could be a few possible causes:
  1. Thermostat malfunction: The thermostat controls the temperature inside the fridge. If it is malfunctioning, it may not be able to maintain the correct temperature, causing the fridge to get warm.
  2. Air circulation problem: If the air is not circulating properly inside the fridge, it may not be able to maintain the correct temperature. This could be caused by a dirty or blocked air vent, a malfunctioning fan motor, or a problem with the door seal.
  3. Evaporator coils are iced up: The evaporator coils are responsible for removing heat from the fridge. If they become iced up, they will not be able to function properly, causing the fridge to get warm.
  4. Compressor issue: The compressor is responsible for pumping refrigerant through the cooling system. If the compressor is not working properly, it may not be able to pump refrigerant through the system, causing the fridge to get warm.
  5. A malfunctioning control board: The control board is responsible for managing the functions of the refrigerator, if it's malfunctioning it may cause the fridge not to maintain the correct temperature.
