Fridge Freezer not working
« on: December 13, 2013, 10:33:57 PM »

I have a fisher and paykel fridge freezer, an "e411trt" to be precise. Recently it stopped cooling. I pulled the back of the freezer open and it was not iced over have checked 2 fans inside the fridge, both operate fine, and let it defrost before trying again. The condensor runs and gets quite warm.
I have used the internal 'digital' temperature setting to check that the freezer fridge and evaporator temperature settings are all operating correctly.
If i turn the device on for an hour it achieves nothing now, compresser whirls away, fans run, but the evaporator is not cooling or icing over.

I attempted to force it into a defrost cycle but the heater element does not seem to engage, i dontknow if this is because the freezer compartment is too warm.

Is it likely my issue is in the gas flow or lack of gass?

The compressor running and no frost on the evaporator is a sealed system problem. Check your warranty, some manufacturers cover the sealed system for 5 years or more. A sealed system problem can be a faulty compressor, low refrigerant or a restriction.  The only way to tell what the problem is is to attach gauges.
