Beko fridge freezer troubleshooting

Beko Fridge Freezer Troubleshooting. The Beko fridge may have been overfilled, and the food is touching the fridge wall from the inside. The cooling of the fridge may be set wrong.

It’s possible that the Beko freezer’s coils are dirty. The fridge light won’t power when you open the fridge.

I encountered the Beko fridge and freezer issues recently. The freezer and the fridge, as they are fundamentally the same, had similar cooling and working issues.

The frost build-up in a freezer was one thing, but the same happened in the fridge too. The cooling of my fridge disappointed me after freezing, and the light of the fridge made me miserable.

I troubleshot the whole freezer and the fridge starting from the cracks in the door’s wall and taking the issue to its coils. I fixed all fridge/freezer issues after troubleshooting.

Beko fridge freezer troubleshooting

Having a fridge and freezer like the Beko fridge freezer is pretty great. Beko is an advanced form of fridge and freezer.

The good news with Beko is that troubleshooting the Beko freezers is pretty easy, including the fridge. The troubleshooting requires only a few refrigerator checking, and difficult we leave difficult settings out.

The door of the fridge or the freezer is usually the culprit that starts the cooling issues. Too much war food present in the fridge stops cooling.

Too much cold weather outside disrupts the freezer’s cooling as well. Frost build-up usually is not suitable for the refrigerator for cooling.

Power

power

Move to power before testing the fridge or the things inside. Power isn’t just for the cooling of the fridge and the freezer.

All function of the fridge is affected by power. The lower the power of the fridge, the function loss will begin with power.

Check the power through a multimeter and connect the outlet.

Power from the outlet and the power to the fridge should both be checked as the cord can affect it. If the power to the fridge isn’t enough, make it enough by checking the methods online. Using a stabilizer is my tip.

Storing place

Let’s not get to the fridge before checking the surroundings. You should know the storage area of the fridge as it’s your house.

Check if the freezer is stored in areas like the garage or places that are open to the weather.

The storing area is important as it affects the freezer’s cooling ability.

The main thing about the storage area is not just the placement of the fridge. The main thing about the storage area is actually the weather.

Too cool weather outside will affect the freezer and not let it cool. The placement comes in here as the places like the garage will take more effect from the weather and decrease the temperature.

This is because there isn’t cooling in the garage. If the weather or too cold temperature makes sense with your problem, change its location. Check the ambient temperature for your fridge and math it through the guide.

Hot food

Getting to the fridge after the weather and power is the trick. Let’s talk about the food inserted inside.

The temperature of the food that is placed inside the fridge has an effect on the fridge’s cooling. Too hot food in the fridge won’t affect the fridge positively.

Too hot food, especially near the wall makes the temperature of the fridge disturbing. If there is too hot food present in the fridge, take it out.

Before putting food in the freezer, Let it cool down. Normal food is okay to be put inside, unlike hot food.

Overfilled freezer/fridge

Hot food was one thing in the fridge, but too much food makes the difference too.

Even if the food inside the fridge isn’t too hot, the amount of food inside the fridge or the freezer shows the same problem as that of the too hot food that was inside them.

The amount of food affects air circulation inside the freezer and the fridge. The air circulation then affects the cooling.

The overflow of food blocks the airflow that should be smooth in the freezer. Check the parts of the freezer and the fridge to see if their temperature is as cool as it should be.

If some parts don’t seem cool, restore the airflow of the freezer and the fridge by removing the overly filled food. The removal of food would not restrict the airflow. Especially clear the vents and the food touching the walls.

Dirty coils

dirty coils

The coils mainly affecting the temperature are the condenser coils of the fridge. The fridge doesn’t cool without the condenser coils, nor does the freezer.

I related the condenser coil to heat release. It releases the heat produced by the appliance and makes the temperature inside the freezer stable.

The temperature is released in the surrounding air. Without the condenser coil, the temperature will be really worse than outside, and heat will remain.

The wires are unable to perform efficiently when the dist covers the coils. The dirty condenser coils should be cleaned for the heat to be outside. Unplug the power. Look for the condenser coil at the bottom or back of the fridge.

Use a small brush to clear the dusty coils or a vacuum cleaner attachment to clean the vacuum. Avoid damped clothes or towels for cleaning the coils. Using a brush or extension is safer.

Ice escalation

If the coils are clean or you have cleaned the condenser coils, but the fridge is not cooling, then continue the troubleshooting. Check inside the freezer.

Focus on the walls of the freezer and see if there is frost on them. The walls may have frost that built up with time. Manual defrosting is required if the frost is inside the freezer and on the walls is visible.

Manually defrosting the appliances will be time needed. To know the defrosting of your particular freezer, check the Beko fridge freezer manual.

A Manual or guide will have a defrosting trick for your freezer. YOu can check for defrosting tricks on the internet too.

You may be lucky if the freezer has a no-frost feature in your model. The feature will automatically defrost for you. Manual defrosting won’t be needed with this feature. Move to the next after defrosting the freezer.

Door seals

The next thing is the door seals of the freezer. The fridge’s door seal has the same cracking as the freezer.

The seals on the doors are made from a material that won’t let the outside temperature inside and the fridge’s temperature outside either.

But the life of the seal of the fridge door is very limited. Crack and tearing invades the seal of the freezer’s door with time, causing the seal to be useless.

The gap inside the seal may be because of adjustment. Try adjusting the seal to make it resistant to leakage. Adjust the door seal with your fingers very gently.

Some openings may persist and won’t be adjusted. The seal may be adjusted, but cracks in it won’t do the sealing job.

Cracks in the seal mean fixing the seal is useless. Get a matching door seal for your freezer and fridge, and replace them.

Conclusion

If the Beko fridge freezer shows problems, start your project. The project to fix the freezer and the fridge is troubleshooting. The last problem you want is to have your fridge and freezer losing their ability to cool.

Start by powering and the condenser coil cleaning to reach all parts. Check food inside the fridge and its temperature before putting it. Get rid of the extra frost that is making the freezer not work. Thanks for reading!
