Hi all,

 

I'm trying to get at the freezer element inside the freezer compartment in my F&P E522B .   It seems like you need to remove the side panels with the drawer sliders on to get out the rear panels and see the condenser etc , but i cannot work out how to remove the side panels - no screws, clips or lugs visible.

 

It feels as it if should slide out horizontally, but I don't want to break something.

 

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the diagram - it's piece 30 I'm trying to remove - I am now thinking that the metal runner/sliders themselves may be somehow clipping the two things together - but again no screws or anything.

 

Does somebody with higher security clearance have access to the F&P  service manual?

the service manual does not mention how to remove the rails. It discusses how to remove evap cover only.

Yes, I paid the fees and downloaded the manual.  I then just pulled the rear panel really hard, and it deformed enough to get past the side rails and come out.

 

The evaporator was fine - not iced up, the drain hole was a little blocked.   There seemed to be a series of downwards vents from the fridge compartment which  were completely blocked by ice - I presume this might have prevented cold air being drawn up from the freezer properly.   Anyway it's now al been cleared and I have the diagnostics information to use to find out what's going on.

 

Thanks again.

when you look at the side panel you see the 2 lugs up the back of it

 

grab your pliars and pull on the top and at the same time get your fingers up the back edge and as it starts to pull out you

pull hard on it as there is a locating lug underneath that you cannot see

 

this allows you to then slide the whole panel forward to removed

 

check your seals and door closing , i bet the doors have been open at some stage allowing air in
