Is it essential to allow the recommended ventilation space on the side of fridge freezers, all sides are okay except the one side is against the wall with only a couple of mm space


It will be fine, it's just a recommendation and can be closer if the space requires it, just keep in mind that you will get some heat transfer to the closer wall but this is normal, the gap at the back and top are more important. ... Fisher and Paykel Refrigerators

My father has an Electrlux ER 78311 fridge/freezer. It started icing up inside fridge and top of freezer. After we deiced it, it stopped working altogether. Still makes a noise as though it's working. Ventilation around it looked poor. Is it worth fixing? Can I do something simple to fix it myself perhaps? Thank you. Frank


Did you deice totally or just the ice you saw. To properly deice the freezer section you have to remove the panel on the back of the freezer section and using a hair dryer remove all frost build up on the evap. coils. The most common cause of this p ... Electrolux Refrigerators

Ever since I've owned my fridge (coming up on 4 years), the freezer would build up into a big chunk of ice causing the freezer temp to drop and the fridge temp to rise. I would melt the chunk of ice and then drain the water from the back of the fridge. It would work properly for a few months and then start happening again. Now, its happening with more frequency. Currently, the freezer temp is holding around 0 and the fridge temp is up around 55-60.

Hello, I have a samsung side by side fridge freezer (SRS597NP) that keeps icing up the fan and coils behind the bottom two draws of the fridge. It ices up that much that the fan hits the ice and makes a loud whirring sound. To stop this I have to pull the bottom cover off the inside of the fridge and defrost it with a hair dryer. This fixes the problem but only for about 3-4 weeks then I have to do the whole process again. I've had the fridge for around 2 years without any other problems occurin

Simpson fridge stopped working. The freezer still goes but not the fridge part. At the time the power fuse box overloaded (around the same time as the fridge died). Not sure if that was connected but power hasn't flipped since. Any ideas what could be wrong and whether it's worth repairing? I think the fridge must be 10 years old - it was my landlords.

About Westinghouse WSE697OSA fridge with ice and water dispeser delivered, but I am disapointed with the quantity of ice it makes. It does not keep up to our household demand. There are only three of us. It was supposed to free up fridge space, and not having to store water bottles in the fridge or ice in the freezer. Servce agents replaced the icemaker but it doesn't appear to be any better. I am very disapointed in the performance so far, and we haven't hit hot water yet.
