Problem Solution
My refrigerator is not cold enough?• Ensure the temperature is not set to low;
• Ensure the refrigerator is not in direct sunlight or is close to a heat source such as a radiator. The refrigerator works at its best when the ambient temperature is between 16°C and 32°C;
• Ensure there is sufficient space (at least 10cm’s) between the refrigerator and the wall behind.
Food in the fridge compartment is freezing?• Ensure the temperature is not set to strong;
• Ensure the ambient temperature is greater than 5°C.
• Foods can be frozen if the ambient temperature is below 5°C;
• Ensure foods with high water content are not stored close to the cold air spout. Please store these types of foods towards the front of the refrigerator
The refrigerator is making a sound noise?• Ensure the refrigerator is positioned on a level, even floor;
• Ensure there is sufficient space (at least 10cm’s) between the refrigerator and the wall behind;
• Ensure no foreign objects are touching the refrigerator
What is this strong smell coming from my refrigerator?• Ensure all foods are covered and wrapped;
• Ensure all pockets and shelves are cleaned regularly (using a damp cloth).
Why does the front and side of my refrigerator feel warm?• Pipes, known as refrigerant vessels, which are designed to contain heat are placed within the refrigerators cavity to prevent moisture from forming on it
Why do the doors seem sticky when opening?• Generally this occurs when you close the door and reopen immediately. Warm air rushes in which increases the pressure inside the refrigerator. If this happens wait for a minute and then reopen
Why does it sound like water is flowing from my refrigerator?• When the compressor starts to run or indeed when it stops the refrigerant, which makes the refrigerator cold, starts flowing through the refrigerant vessels (pipes) which can lead to some noise
Why have 1 got water droplets on the back wall of my refrigerator?• The refrigerator has an automatic defrosting function. Melted water drains into an evaporation pan at the back of the refrigerator. When the compressor runs the heat generated makes this water evaporate. As a result you will find frost and water drops on the back wall of the refrigerator.
Why is my refrigerator humming/buzzing?• This is the normal sound of the compressor and cold air circulation fans
Why is dew forming on the wall in the fridge and freezer compartments?• The ambient temperature is too high;
• The doors are left open for too long;
• Foods with high water content are being stored uncovered or unwrapped.
Why is there dew on the interior light cover?• The light bulb will radiate heat when it is on so when the doors are opened dew can form because of the sudden difference in temperature.
