5. COLD AIR FLOW SCHEMATIC DIAGRAM
The cold air generated in the evaporator is forced into the freezer
compartment and into the refrigerator compartment by the
motofan.
In the freezer compartment the cold air is distributed through
the top flow to the shelves and the food is frozen by the cold
air flow.
In the refrigerator compartment, the cold air flow coming from
the evaporator is carried by the freezer’s top flow passing
through the manual damper that will control the amount (flow
rate) of cold air that will be redirected to cool down the
refrigerator compartment.
The manual damper has three positions:
· Maximum Refrigerator: 80% of the air flow rate is
redirected to the refrigerator implying in a faster cooling
rate in the refrigerator compartment.
· Normal: 50% of the air flow rate is redirected to the
refrigerator.
· Maximum Freezer: only 20% of the air flow rate is
redirected to the refrigerator thus implying in a slower cooling
rate in the refrigerator compartment.

After passing through the manual damper, the cold air flow
will be carried through a space in the intermediary division
between the freezer and the refrigerator compartments to the
top flow duct of the refrigerator that will then uniformly distribute
it through that compartment.
After cooling down the refrigerator compartment the air will
return through the refrigerator’s Top Flow back, which will direct
it through another space in the intermediary division between
the freezer and refrigerator compartments, to the freezer’s
evaporator.

6. OPERATION
The DF36 Electromechanical Frost Free refrigerator works under the vapor compression cycle R134-a. The vapor
is compressed in the alternate compressor, release heath in the condenser, is restricted into the capillary pipe and
absorbs heath in the flap tube evaporator, returning to the compressor as vapor through the suction line.
The cold air coming form the evaporator is forced by the motofan into the freezer and then conducted to the refrigerator
through the freezer and refrigerator top flow ducts. The temperature control in the refrigerator is done with the help of an
electromechanical thermostat located inside the top flow of this compartment which, in accordance to the temperature,
varies its diaphragm turning off or on the power for the compressor, timer, and evaporator motofan.
The temperature in the freezer compartment depends on the thermostat localized inside the refrigerator compartment
which will be controlling the temperature of that compartment. As the refrigeration need of the refrigerator compartment
is greater than the one of the freezer compartment, having the temperature control located in the refrigerator
compartment guarantees that the freezer will always be operating in an adequate temperature (below -18ºC).
A greater refrigeration speed between the both compartments can be controlled through the mechanical damper
localized in the freezer’s top flow, which has three possible, adjust positions: maximum refrigerator, normal, and
maximum freezer.
6.1 Defrost
After cooling for some time, all the humidity introduced inside the product by the stored food, or by the opening of the
doors, will be retained in the evaporator and will gradually freeze. At that point, it will be necessary to remove this ice
in excess accumulated on the surface of the evaporator, through a defrost operation.
The product has a defrost resistance fixed to the evaporator and another resistance fixed to the defrost drain gutter,
localized in the refrigerator’s top flow, so as to prevent the freezing of the gutter thus facilitating the draining of the
water resulting from the defrost that comes from the evaporator. The evaporator and the gutter resistances’ are
connected in parallel.
During the defrost operation, the compressor, the motofan and the timer will remain turned off.
The resistances are turned on by the timer, with the monitoring of the defrosting end being done by the defrost
thermostat (bimetal). There is a thermal security fuse positioned in the up right side of the evaporator.
Note: The thermal fuse works in the case of a failure in one of the other circuits thus avoiding the defrost
resistance to heat too much. In case the thermal fuse is used it will be spoiled. Before replacing that
component, it’s mandatory that the problem that led to its use should have been identified and fully corrected.
The product must never be turned on without the thermal fuse being correctly installed.
6.1.1 Defrost Bimetal registering a temperature equal to or above +25°C ( ±3ºC) when the refrigerator is turned on:
Accumulates 8 hours of compressor operation
Pause (10min)
(dripping with the resistances
already turned off)
Defrost (up to +25ºC in the
Bimetal)
This document cannot be reproduced or passed to third parties without authorization from Electrolux do Brasil S.A.

6.1.2 Defrost Bimetal registering a temperature less than -6ºC (±4ºC) when the refrigerator is turned on (in the
case of a power failure happening before the product has achieved a temperature above +25ºC (3 ºC) in the
defrost bimetal).
Accumulates 8 hours, considering the time
accumulated befor the turn off
Pause (10min)
(dripping with the resistances
already turned off)
Defrost (up to +25ºC in the
Bimetal)
6.1.3 During the continuous operation of the refrigerator
Accumulates 8 hours
of compressor operation
Defrost (up to +25ºC in the
Bimetal)
Pause (10min)
(dripping with the resistances
already turned off)
6.2 Compensation in Case of Power Failure
In case of power failure, the product will behave according to the following conditions once the power returns.
6.2.1 Defrost Bimetal registering a temperature equal to or above +25ºC
The product will restart operation according to the procedure in item 6.1.1.
6.2.2 Defrost Bimetal registering a temperature lesser than -6ºC
The product will preserve the same adjustment configuration it has before the power failure. The defrost will happen
according to item 6.1.2.

To verify the proper operation of the bulb, measure the alternate tension (127V or 220V) between the terminal 1 of the
thermostat and the terminal 4 of the multi-way connector of the refrigerator top flow.
! Thermostat test
With the thermostat in the turned on position, it should have been continuity between the terminals 1 and 3. If
there is no continuity, the thermostat must be replaced.

1.4 Operation of the defrost system
To check the operation of the product defrost system the steps bellow should be followed:
1.4.1 Forced Defrost
With the help of a screwdriver, turn the timer mechanism in the clockwise sense until you hear the first click, so
as to manually advance it to the defrost position. At this point, a change occurs in the timer contacts going from
1-4 to 1-2, turning off the product compressor.
1.4.2 Verify if there was change of the timer contacts which provide energy for the resistances.
Now, there should be alternate tension (127 or 220V) between the contacts 1-2 of the timer.
The freezer temperature being bellow -6 ± 4ºC, there will be current feeding the defrost and gutter resistances,
which are connected in parallel.
At this point, the timer motor stops, because being serially connected to the resistances it has an elevated
impedance (approximately 16.000) in relation to the parallel value between the resistances. The current that flows
through the circuit tend to follow the path with lesser resistance.
The defrost operation is monitored by the bimetallic defrost thermostat. When the temperature achieves +25 ± 3
º
C in the thermostat, its contact opens interrupting the current being passed to the resistances. At this point, the
timer motor is energized again, resuming operation and turning the timer mechanism for 10 minutes. During this
period of time, the product is still with contacts 1-2 on and the motofan, resistances and the compressor are turned off.
We call this 10 minutes period of dripping time. After this period of time, there is a change in the timer contacts
to 1-4, activating the compressor if the refrigerator thermostat is requiring its activation.
1.4.3 Checking the resistances with forced defrost
! Defrost Resistance
Disconnecting the freezer evaporator defrost resistance male connector, using the resistance scale of the multimeter,
it is possible to verify its resistance value in ohms (see the table bellow for comparison values).
In the resistance female connector located in the cabinet, it is possible to measure the alternate tension127V
or 220V), if the defrost is activated, according to the procedure described above. If there is tension in this
connector, that means that the thermal fuse and the defrost thermostat are allowing the defrost operation.
