1. Press and hold the Door Alarm Keypad .

2. Press and hold Freezer Temperature Down Keypad .

3. Release the Door Alarm Keypad and wait 3 seconds.

4. The control will display PE to indicate the programming mode.

5. Entry is confirmed by pressing the Freezer Temperature Down Keypad once more.

6. The control will display the current Program CODE. This value should be validated with the

Program CODE printed on the unit serial plate.

NOTE: If the Program CODE is correct, the Programming Mode is exited by pressing Door Alarm Keypad for 3 seconds.

7. Press the Refrigerator Temperature Up Keypad or Refrigerator Down Keypad to change the digit value with each key press.

8. The decimal point indicates the selected digit. Press the Freezer Temperature Up Keypad to select the next digit.

If the new code is incorrect this process should be repeated.

The Programming mode can be exited at any time

take out the terminal and check the power is coming to the compressor terminals and if it does then its overload or control board is faulty too.

Could be the thermostat or defrost thermostat.

The drain is normally in a little tray in the back of the fridge. Remove the food and the shelves and you will often find a small piece of food or a lump of mould blocking the small hole. Clean it and pour a little water down it. If it doesn't move, use a length of auto wire and push it down the hole. It goes to an evaporator tray on top of the compressor, to be evaporated as steam.

Try replacing the ice bucket. That has the teeth and gears that crush the ice up. It could be stuck. If not then there's a solenoid in the back of the freezer that switches the ice bucket from cubed to crushed. You'll see the rod in the ice bucket slides into a square hole that moves up and down. That's it there.
