HI I have an iq300 SIemens fridge/freezer. The fridge part isn't cooling, but the freezer is fine. The fridge part makes a soft click/clucking sound every hour or so.
Hi George, what is ENR and FD? I looked on the doors but didn't notice any glued on labels with numbers
The fridge is built in so the sides are inaccessible unless I pull it out from the cabinet and off it's short raised wood base.
The ENR kg33nx74gb/06 FD 9106
SO there's nothing connecting the 0144 cowling plastic to the 0143 or 0140?
It all seems to be a single unit. are either of the 43 or 44 plugged into the back wall somehow? If I pull the whole assembly towards me, will it come out as a unit?
Look at the front end of 1044 for screws or retaining pins as holes are shown in the cover on the diagram... But, 0144 is just a cover and should come off on its own..0143 however, is the defrost heater and is wired to the electrics of the appliance..0140 is fixed to the appliance.. This is the evaporator and it is where the coolant flows, so be careful not to damage it.Here is a better image that includes the fan you are looking for (Highlighted in yellow)
Be careful that it is not ice that is holding the parts together... If it is, then this will need defrosting before removal.
Is it possible the fan is spinning backwards? It seems to be blowing all the air into the freezer compartment, instead of into the fridge.
No, the freezer is cooling but not the fridge. The coils are covered in frost now, which wasn't the case before the repair... so I suspect the defrost wire isn't providing current.
As you said the plugs are keyed so I must have it on the right one.
The fan is definitely spinning and blowing air into the freezer area.
HI George, yes we have thick frost. When You had me pull out the assembly two days ago. there was no frost on the coils, but we had a huge block of ice blocking the duct near the coils.
So I suspect the defrost heater was somehow made inoperative during our previous repair. I tried unplugging/replugging it in just an hour ago, but the frost remains, so it's not working.
You mentioned you didn't have a wiring diagram, but that the block was keyed so plugging in should be the problem. The fan and lights work, so if the fuse is blown, it must be for the heater only? If you tell me where the fuse is I can pull it out and check. Also happy to talk via Skype again if you like.
The freezer door wasn't closing enough for the little rubber tab to fully depress the freezer door switch. I'm hoping that accounts for the frost on the coils.
Also, I'd mounted the freezer back panel dcuting after putting on the upper cowling, so there wasn't a seal in the back. I've corrected both and waiting to see if that helps.
