Asko Refrigerator Error Codes

Asko Refrigerator Error Code ER2

Error Code ER2 indicates a Defrost System Error in your Asko refrigerator. This problem arises when the defrost system, responsible for preventing excessive frost buildup on the evaporator coils, is not functioning correctly. Frost accumulation can lead to inefficient cooling and potential long-term damage to your refrigerator.

  1. Manual Defrosting:

    • Unplug the refrigerator to ensure safety.
    • Remove all perishable items from the freezer and refrigerator compartments.
    • Leave the freezer door open to allow the accumulated frost to melt.
    • Use towels to soak up any water that may result from the defrosting process.
  2. Check the Defrost Timer:

    • Locate the defrost timer, usually found near the thermostat control or at the back of the refrigerator.
    • Turn the timer manually to initiate the defrost cycle.
    • Listen for a click sound, indicating the timer is functioning.
  3. Inspect the Defrost Heater:

    • Access the evaporator coils by removing the freezer compartment’s back panel.
    • Check the defrost heater for any visible damage, such as burnt spots or breaks.
    • If the heater is faulty, it may need replacement.
  4. Examine the Defrost Thermostat:

    • Test the defrost thermostat for continuity using a multimeter.
    • If there is no continuity when the thermostat is frozen, it is likely defective and needs replacement.
  5. Clear Air Vents:

    • Ensure that air vents in both the freezer and refrigerator compartments are not obstructed by food items.
    • Proper air circulation is essential for maintaining even cooling.
  6. Monitor Temperature Settings:

    • Verify that the temperature settings are appropriate for both the freezer and refrigerator compartments.
    • Incorrect settings can contribute to frost buildup.
  7. Power Cycling:

    • Sometimes, a simple power cycle can reset the refrigerator’s system.
    • Unplug the refrigerator for a few minutes and then plug it back in.
