Candy fridge freezer problems can include:
Candy fridge freezer not working
There are several checks that need to be done so it’s advisable to get a qualified engineer to safely do them for you. The power supply could be an issue here, alongside faulty power sockets, fuses, electrical cord and wiring, or a problem with the circuit breaker.
Damaged seals and gaskets will prevent the appliance from working. A defective thermostat can also cause problems with the operation. Within the freezer compartment, the fan may be blocked. Or the condenser coils might have collected debris preventing the freezer from cooling.
The defrost timer can also cause difficulties – if the compressor motor isn’t set to start within the hour after automatic defrosting then the timer may need repairing or replacing.
Candy fridge freezer not freezing
A freezer not working at the proper temperature can cause potential health risks as foods become warm enough to allow bacterial growth. The ideal temperature for your freezer is – 18 degrees Celsius. A freezer thermometer will enable you to test for this temperature ongoing.
If the condenser coils are dirty, they’ll be unable to dissipate the heat effectively reducing the cooling capacity. Other reasons for the lack of freezing could be related to the evaporator fan motor not working, or the start relay, which gives power to the compressor, malfunctioning.
Candy fridge freezer too cold
This could be due to the defrost heater not working properly. The freezer should be cold enough to freeze your food – too cold and there’s a potential for ice build-up. If the fridge feels warm and the freezer very cold this component is probably the culprit.
Other causes could be a defective evaporator fan motor or an issue with the damper control assembly. All of these Candy fridge freezer repairs can be quickly carried out by a trained appliance repair technician.
Candy fridge freezer drain hole blocked
If the fridge freezer drain hole becomes blocked this can cause other issues with your appliance. The drain hole acts as an outlet for catching moisture, and without this exit, the excess water will pool on the bottom shelf – potentially developing mould and ruining stored food.
Excess water will need to be removed before the drain hole can be cleaned and cleared. If your fridge freezer continues to collect water you may need an experienced engineer to diagnose and fix any more serious problems.
Candy fridge freezer LED light flashing
Flashing lights normally mean that a visit from a service engineer is required. This issue could be caused by a loose connection or a problem with the power supply to the appliance. The power outlet will also need to be checked for the proper voltage. The freezer dial will need to be reset after any problems have been resolved.
