Common Indesit Fridge Freezer Issues

Indesit fridge freezer not working

This is often due to a problem with the power supply – plugs, switches, fuses, or the circuit breaker. It’s possible that there’s a blockage in the drain pan or pipes. Obstructed coils can cause poor cooling, and the condenser can result in the fridge freezer not functioning properly. You’ll need a qualified repair technician to identify the fault and carry out safe repairs.

Indesit fridge freezer troubleshooting also covers:

Indesit fridge freezer compressor not working

The compressor is the motor which compresses the refrigerant and circulates it through the condenser coils and then the evaporator. If this component fails to work it needs to be checked and possibly replaced by a professional.

Indesit fridge freezer thermostat problems

The thermostat will show either an analogue dial or a digital display to indicate the temperature of the fridge and freezer. The temperature control thermostat provides a multi-function of letting sufficient cold air pass through components such as the evaporator, compressor, and condenser fan.

If the reading is too low, or the cooling system fans are running but the fridge still isn’t cooling this points to a covered or broken thermostat. And this will need expertly repairing or replacing.

Indesit fridge freezer is running continuously

Achieving lower temperatures may cause the appliance to run for longer. But there are other reasons which may contribute to this: the position of the fridge freezer – if this is near to the oven, a heater, or a window this can affect the operation. If there’s not enough ventilation around the outside of the cabinet this can result in the fridge freezer working for longer – as can a wrongly adjusted or faulty thermostat.

Indesit frost-free fridge freezer problems can include:

Noisy Indesit frost-free fridge freezer

Both internal and external fans are used during the normal operation of the appliance and this can be quite loud at times. As can cracking noises that happen when the fridge freezer is automatically defrosting.

However, whirring and scraping noises may indicate issues with ice build-up around the fan, and possible problems with a rattling drain pan, or pipes vibrating against the wall – easily rectified by your local engineer.

Indesit frost-free fridge freezer too warm

The temperature could be rising due to ice build-up on the evaporator when warm air has turned to frost. Over time this will affect the airflow resulting in the temperature remaining too high.

Possible reasons for a malfunctioning evaporator could be related to a faulty heater, sensor, or even a fuse. The heater may have faulty connections, and sensor readings can identify problems with the sensors themselves.

There may also be a fault with the timer or control board. All of these problems need to be checked out by a repair technician who can then resolve the issues quickly.
