Liebher CUP 2221

Let's start with the smallest refrigerator: its dimensions are 136x55x62.8 cm. Single-chamber models with such dimensions are a frequent phenomenon. But the CUP 2221 is the most common two-compartment refrigerator, only in a smaller version.

The volume of the "baby" - 196 liters, 54 of which fall on the freezer. Most users are accustomed to pre-purchase products for a week or even a month.

In CU 3501 you will not find unnecessary functions, and not everyone is chasing the "bells and whistles".But, despite the modesty, the technique has one special technology - Frost Safe.

Liebherr CN3313

Refrigerator with No Frost system( No Frost) - you can forget about the frozen ice crust. The system operates on the principle of a fan, ensuring constant movement of cooled air in the chambers.

The frost collects outside the chamber, melts, flows into a special container and evaporates.

The system can be called convenient, but it must be borne in mind that products should be carefully packaged in film or foil, otherwise they will quickly lose moisture and dry out.

On the case there are two electronic displays that display the temperature in the chambers. For comparison, you can take the Sharp SJ-P48N, it is cheaper and has similar characteristics. But do not forget the rule - good technology is worth good money.

It's not a secret that any device can break - no matter how much it costs or how many functions it has. A breakdown may catch you suddenly if you ignore the safety rules. The factors independent of the owner also influence the work. For example, the mains voltage or the quality of installed parts.

Types of breakdowns:

  1. If you notice that the temperature in the refrigerator or freezer has increased, most likely a freon leak occurred in the foamed part. In no case do not repair yourself.
  2. A thermostat must be replaced if the compressor runs continuously or does not start at all. Pay attention to the thermostat knob. If the thermostat breaks down, it will not work.
  3. If ice is frozen on the walls of the chambers or a snow coat is formed, the main cause of the breakdown is a fan failure. Most often, No Frost models suffer from this problem.
  4. The display shows error code F2 , the Alarm button is lit, did the temperature in the refrigerator compartment decrease significantly? You have experienced typical symptoms of a temperature sensor.
  5. If the motor-compressor is working intermittently, does not start or starts with pauses, it is necessary to replace the starting relay( PZR).

In some cases, correcting the temperature or installing a new light bulb will suffice to correct the problem. And others require the immediate intervention of a repairman. In any case, for the equipment to work stably, regular maintenance is necessary. If you ignore the rules, you may get an unpleasant smell or frost. This will affect the quality and safety of products, and the equipment will simply break down as a result.
