Why Is My Blomberg Freezer Not Cold Enough?

Problems with the defrost system, dirty condenser tubes, fan failures or leaky gaskets can result in your Blomberg freezer to not be cold enough. The cooling problem may appear to be in the freezer. But the reality is that your Blomberg fridge and freezer will likely not be cold enough. You’ll want to fix the problem quickly to avoid food spoilage. How can you prevent air leaks that keep your Blomberg freezer from becoming cold enough If the Blomberg freezer is too warm for ice cream to remain firmly frozen and you see lots of frost in the freezer compartment, then warm moist air may be leaking into your refrigerator. It is recommended to check the gaskets on the doors for damage and replace any damaged gaskets. If your gaskets look good however the door is sliding on its hinges or creating gaps between the door gaskets and the cabinet, you can adjust the hinges of your Blomberg refrigerator to make sure that the gaskets are able to are able to seal the cabinet. If frost is only visible on the back freezer wall, the automatic defrost may be failing. If the defrost mechanism is working correctly it melts the frost off the coils of the evaporator about every 8 hours in order to ensure that the air passages in the the evaporator clean and allow the freezer and refrigerator compartments to cool properly. Frozen builds up on the back freezer wall as well as the evaporator in the event that the automatic defrost mechanism fails.

The Blomberg freezer will not cool as efficiently because the frost blocks the air cooling pathways that run through the evaporator. How can I solve other freezer issues? If the fan in the evaporator isn’t running, check the freezer compartment for cooling. If it’s not working you should replace the evaporator fan. Problems with cooling can be caused by dirty condenser coils. The Blomberg refrigerator must be disconnected. If they’re dirty Clean the condenser tubes. Make sure you clean the coils each time you do regular maintenance on your Blomberg refrigerator. If the freezer is not getting cold enough, check that the condenser fan is running. If the condenser fan will not operate, it cannot cool refrigerant efficiently. If the fan for the condenser isn’t working, it must be replaced.

These fixes can help you Solve Your Refrigerator Problem

Replace the Blomberg refrigerator defrost sensor: The Blomberg refrigerator defrost sensor, also referred to as the defrost bi-metal termination thermostat-trips when it detects that the temperature of the evaporator is becoming hot enough that it might overheat. The defrost detector will trip when it detects that the heater is getting too hot. If the defrost sensors is triggered due to a malfunction with its operation, then there is a chance that frost will build up on the evaporator fins. This can cause the freezer and refrigerator to fail to cool as efficiently. It is possible to use a volt/ohm meter to check the defrost sensor for continuity. If the sensor shows no continuity, then replace it at 0 degrees F. Clean the Blomberg refrigerator compressor coils. Dust-covered Blomberg refrigerator compressor coils can stop the freezer and refrigerator from cooling properly. Clean the condenser coiled according to your owner’s manual. Unplug the Blomberg refrigerator before accessing and cleaning the coils. The majority of Blomberg refrigerators have coils that are behind the grill on the bottom. It is possible to clean the condenser tubes using brushes.

Replace the Blomberg refrigerator fan condenser fan: It’s located inside the machine compartment of the Blomberg refrigerator, right next to the compressor. It circulates air across the condenser fan coils to cool the hot refrigerant that comes from the compressor. Before the refrigerant moves through the expansion device, it’s cooled. Replace the condenser fan if it has been damaged. Repair the Blomberg refrigerator freezer defrost: In order to increase heat exchange in the Blomberg refrigerator refrigerator auto defrost is able to melt frost from evaporator. The compressor shuts down and the heating element switches on, and the it melts away the fins of the evaporator. The condensate flows to an evaporator drip tray below the evaporator and then flows through a defrost drain tube to a drain pan close to the compressor within the compartment of the machine. The condensate water will evaporate out of the drain tray prior to the next freeze cycle. If the defrost does not work, fix the problem.

Replace the Blomberg refrigerator fan: The fan is installed on top of the evaporator unit. It moves air across the fins of the evaporator and into the cabinet to cool. If the evaporator fan is defective, replace it. Replace the Blomberg refrigerator’s temperature control board: The temperature control board-also known as the electronic control board is in the machine compartment close to the compressor behind a panel on the back of the Blomberg refrigerator. The temperature control board regulates the compressor and other components of the Blomberg refrigerator. It is able to be tested by following the diagnostic tests procedures found on the tech sheet of the refrigerator. If it isn’t functioning properly or the thermostat control board stops working You can change it.

Change the Blomberg refrigerator’s temperature control thermostat: The thermostat contains a sensor tube, which detects the temperature of the Blomberg refrigerator. The temperature control thermostat controls the temperature inside the cabinet through turning on and shutting off the compressor based on the temperature detected by the sensor tube. Replace the temperature control thermostat in the event that it is unable to detect temperature properly or if it isn’t able to cycle the compressor correctly. The Blomberg refrigerator thermostat should be replaced. If the refrigerator isn’t cooling properly the thermistor could be defective. The thermostat gets temperature information from the thermistor. Therefore, an faulty thermistor could give false information.

Replace the Blomberg refrigerator’s defrost timer: The defrost timer can be described as an electronic device that regulates the time between automatic defrost cycles within the Blomberg refrigerator. The motor that drives the defrost control elements and runs the control elements. The compressor will stop when the defrost contacts are within the defrost cycle. Then the defrost heater turns on for a specific time to melt the frost off the fins of the evaporator. This allows for a better heating transfer between the evaporator as well as the compressor. The timer for defrost will turn back when the period ends to allow normal cooling in the Blomberg refrigerator. If the heater for defrost stops functioning, you’ll have to replace it. The timer’s contacts are defective and could also cause the heater to not energize at all, or continue to energize. In these instances it is recommended to replace the timer. The door to the freezer or refrigerator door. Doors to freezers and refrigerators swing on hinges which can be damaged or bent. The doors can begin to sag and allow warm moist to enter the fridge. This creates excessive frost that could result in the drain tube or freezer to freeze. The refrigerator repair involves aligning and repairing the hinges to ensure that they function properly. Replace the Blomberg refrigerator door gasket. A damaged gasket lets warm, moist air into the Blomberg refrigerator even when the door is closed which can cause excessive cooling and frost problems. If the seal has become worn or damaged, replace it.

Replace the Blomberg refrigerator’s electrical control board: It detects that the compressor in the refrigerator needs to be running in order to maintain its cool temperature and then sends out signals to the compressor’s fans. The electronic control board also monitors temperature inside the fridge and freezer, by taking signals from temperature sensors. The electronic control board then regulates the process of defrost by using this data. Diagnostic tests can be performed on an electronic control board to verify its operation. There are many tests that you can perform, but the most popular test is called the Forced Defrost test. For instructions for running the diagnostic tests, consult the tech sheet. If the electronic controller board isn’t functioning, you must replace it. Routine maintenance for Blomberg refrigerators The coils of your refrigerator that are covered in dust could stop the freezer and refrigerator from running effectively and efficiently cooling. Clean the heating coils of the condenser in accordance with the owner’s guideline. Prior to cleaning the coils, unplug the electrical outlet of your Blomberg refrigerator. The coils are located behind the refrigerator’s bottom grill. By using a coil brush remove the condenser coils. Other routine maintenance includes cleaning the water filter, replacing the bottom front grille and adjusting the hinges in the event that doors aren’t sealed tightly.
