Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Water in the refrigerator, leaking down back, collecting under bins. Can't find a drain hole either in the freezer or the refrid. Can't find a channel in the freezer that may be clogged. Have turned off the Energy-Saver option in frig. but that makes no difference.


Answers :

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use\015\012and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater\015\012comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost\015\012drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the\015\012freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end\015\012because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the\015\012evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it.\015\012Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing\015\012it out with hot water and clorox may help.
\015\012\015\012 Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent\015\012refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the\015\012lower back of the freezer.

The fridge part of my fridge freezer keeps freezing up on the back wall; even though the knob has been turned right down. Food in the veg trays are freezing up. The motor has now started being very noisy. i assumed it was the thermostat so have bought a new one - however I cant find where the thermostat is located and don't know how to replace it when I do find it. The model is Ariston AS108 and is 10 years old.


I have never even seen an Ariston ice box. If that is one that has seperate compressors for fresh and freezer compartments then you must have a bad sensor. Never assume you need a control board until you have replaced those. If the unit has a single ... Refrigerators

The temp. in the frig. part is 40 degrees with the thermostat set at 2, but the freezer (set at the least cold) is like 10 degrees. The frig. (or condenser) turns on/off so often sometimes it will create interference through out the entire apt. I also hear many clicks & pops. I will eventually stop, but this can't be right, not to mention effecient. Does the energy saver switch do anything? What is wrong? Gary
