Question about Fisher and Paykel Active Smart E522B Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Fridge and Freezer losing cooling

Hello!

I've noticed for the past few days that the freezer isn't as cold as normal. Today I noticed the refrigerator wasn't cooling properly as well. I've set the temperature to the lowest temp on both the freezer and refrigerator.

Can you help me? I have the Fisher and Paykel Active Smart (Fridge on top, Freezer on bottom). It's only 1 year old!

Thank you!
T. Boyd

    I have a Frigidaire FRS24MWGW1 Side by Side, it would not freeze, it would get to about 34 and the fridge part never seems to get cold. Yesterday it was about 74 in the freezer and I called a repairman. Had a starter switch replaced and it took about six hours just to get down 34, still not freezing.



    I guess I need to call him back out, but first a question. Should the defrost fan always be turning back on? It seems to be always cycling and if it is, how can the freezer ever get to freezing temps? The defrost timer was replaced about 2 years ago, fridge has never ran the same since.



    Is there something I can do or replace?

    Severe storms in the area. Don't know if that had anything to do with it. Unit is only 3 1/2 years old. I left for work 08:00 am and refrigerator/freezer OK, I think. Lights were on and milk was cold. Came home at 09:30 p.m. freezer complete defrosted. Water from ice maker ran down inside and out the door dispensor. refrigerator slightly cool. Turned unit off 30 seconds, then on. Unplugged unit 30 seconds, then plugged back in. Hear a clicking sound periodically but it does not come on.

    Same problem - fridge and freezer of the E522BRX are not cold enough to keep food. Purchased in Aug 2008, had evaporator fan replaced in September 2008. 24 hrs later, same problem. Called for service again.

    Have a temperature spread of + 8* c in the bottom of my refrigerator compartment to 12 * C at the top. Is that the normal temperature?

We bought a f&p fridge freezer and in summer noticed it wasn't cooling and the freezer wasn't freezing, when the service guy came out he noticed our ducted air con was blowing onto the fridge, once we had redirected the air con outlet the fridge started working as normal, apparently f&p's work on air being convected around the cabinet of the fridge and air blowing on the fridge can effect the temperature of the convected air. hope this helps you or someone

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.

It could be one of 3 things. The circulator fan, the defrost timer or the defrost thermostat. Your schematic should show where these parts are on the unit

LG Refrigerator has no cold air for fridge but freezer works fine


Sounds like the freezer fan(FF)is wearing out, This problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan spins but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. This repair costs parts and labor around $300.00
