Hi It doesn't have a model number on it and i cannot find the receipt. There is a bar code ticket on the back which has the number CBZ380 but i don't know if that is the model number.

Hi Daniel i have found it its model ZRB38213WA

Expert:  Daniel T. replied 2 years ago.
Hi

Ok what you will find is this will be ice that has built up around the fan inside the freezer.

This is a simple fix if you have a screwdriver.

Just empty the freezer and look inside towards the top at the back and you will see a plastic cover. Remove this and from there you will see the fan. Remove all the ice you see in there and from around the fan as well.

The refit the rear panel and that should cure the fault from there. Its quite a common fault on these as ive seen this loads of times.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.

Hi

No worries.
Yes it will be fine. It wont cause any damage, It will just be noisy.

There is another way if you dont want to remove panels.
But for this you need to empty the freezer and turn it off and leave the freezer door open for 24 hours and it will melt itself.
