    Hi,



    I have a very similar problem. My fridge is a Samsung SRL551DP. The alarm repeats itself every few minutes and the temperature of the fridge is 9 degrees. The light was originally not working, but now it appears that it will not turn off. As the light is linked to the alarm switch, I thought that perhaps the problem resided there. I have tried unplugging the fridge, but the problem was not resolved. Whatever help you can offer is appreciated!

SOURCE: temperature in refrigerator is now at 60

sounds like the defrost system is cutting up, it melts the ice in the freezer compartment to allow cold air from freezer to travel to fresh food side and back again, could be a damper control but very rare event.we use to have to melt ice manually in freezers now we have automatic defrosters do it for us. this is not the easiest repair but the defrost sysem is replacable and not the end of your frig.u can empty frig and turn it off for 24 hrs with doors open and let it defrost naturally,so as to make sure that it is a defrostsystem, after 24 hrs turn back on and see if it works correctly after 6 or 8 hrs, if so definite defrost problem.

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Hi,

It seems the problem is with the control unit board.You can replace it or take it to the service center to service the board.If your fridge is under warranty and if you dont have hands on then call service man and remove the board.The location of the board varies from model to model.I feel door alarm is not important for you.You can ask him to cut the alarm sound.He will short the alarm wire.You can save 50$ on replacement of the board because its a small problem.

High temp alarm


Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that you have the High Temp alarm going off on your Frigidaire refrigerator. First, you will want to press the Alarm Off button to turn the alarm off. Next, you will want to press and hold the Factory Default button to put the temperatures at 0 degrees for the freezer and 37 degrees for the refrigerator. Wait 24 hours for the temperatures to stabilize. If you are still having trouble with the alarm going off, reset your appliance by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. When power is restored, you will need to press the alarm off button. If the High temp alarm is still going off, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

check the manual for a reset button, or un plug it for 30 minutes then plug it back in.

check also the door switches, they could be malfunctioning, see if the lights are turning off when you press the switch.
