It’s good when any technique works without problems year after year, but when problems start, it’s problematic for us. It is not normal for the freezer to not turn off at all. The compressor will not last long, its parts will wear out and fail.
Normally, the refrigerator should function for 20 minutes and rest for 5 minutes. You have to listen to the work: if it really works without stopping, then you must find the cause of the breakdown. Before calling the master and saying that your refrigerator has broken down, check all the settings of the refrigerator.
- It is possible that the “super freeze” mode has been activated. This could happen after defrosting the refrigerator or if you turned on the mode yourself to cool the food faster. Modern models themselves turn off “super freeze” in 2-4 hours, but the old equipment, require a manual shutdown, you can turn off the mode with the help of a special button.
- The temperature may be wrong. The ideal temperature for mechanical models is 2.5-3.5. If you select a higher value, the freezer will thresh constantly, and some models can turn on the “super-frost” mode themselves. For refrigerators with electronic control, choose -18-19 C.
If the temperature mode is chosen correctly, then there is some breakdown if the freezer compartment does not turn off.
The freezer works without stopping, but the temperature does not reach the set.
This matter is in the output of the coolant: the contour is broken somewhere, and the gas flows outward. To confirm, unfreeze the appliance and leave to stand for 24 hours. Then plug it into the power. If the refrigerator or freezer is not turned on, it’s a leak.
In this case, please contact our masters. They will do everything qualitatively and tell you what a real problem it was.
