Purchased separate fridge and freezer five/six years ago. no problems with freezer. however within two months had water leaking at base of fridge compartment, replaced drain trough heater kit under warranty. similar problem occurred just at conclusion of warranty period once again was replaced. On Christmas Eve this year, fridge was not keeping temperature (granted was very hot weather) , turned up thermostat, nothing changed. Motor sounded noisy for a few days before this but then noise stopped. Repairman said had a slow gas leak and woul...d need to go to workshop and costs would be $500 + and in his opinion not worth repairing. As cannot get another fridge to fit the size of opening and 373 has been discontinued have had to buy a new combined fridge/freezer and remodel kitchen. PS did get a second opinion from another repairman who concurred that fridge was not worth repairing.
Questions & Answers
Why are we getting a build up of ice in the fridge and how do we fix it
I have F & P vertical freezer Model N388 Serial No MLF 296892R Product 12018 Series D.
It is leaking water ( which freezes) on the right side of the unit which leaks out and door then does not close, This has happened twice in 3 months. We have had the unit for several years. Is it past its use-by date or should we look to have it repaired? Many thanks for your assistance. :)
I have a F & P upright fridge model e373 it is leaking water into the bottom of the fridge, every day. I have been told that it might be a blocked drain. how do I get to the internal drain, how do the panels come off?
Hi Martin, They should just pop out - there is a space for your fingers in the centre between the two panels - from memory, these are attached by velcro. Water leaking into the bottom of the fridge was the beginning of the problem with my fridge - there was a problem with the thermostat, so I had it fixed and within three months ....leaking water again and then it became very noisy as a result of ice building up, that's when it was taken away for 2 weeks for investigation and repair - very expensive exercise only to have to go through the whole process again. The fridge was clearly a lemon! Hopefully your fridge isn't and it is only a blocked drain. I wish you all the best with it.
