    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-

It seems that the temp more often goes up to 20-30's and that food is not as frozen when I check it. When temp goes up I check it for next couple of minutes and usually within 10 min the temp is back down...


This is normal. All commercfial freezers must defrost 3 to 5 times a day, or they will freeze over at the coil and then stop freezing. A timer in your freezer turns off the compressor and turns a heating element on for 10 to 15 minutes. During that time the coil heats and melts frost from the coil. Usually within 30 minutes the temperature will briefly rise to 20 t0 25 degrees F and then quickly drop down to 0 degrees F. The food rarely defrosts in this short period of time..

Can't get alarm to turn off while temperature stabilizes


My wife solved it for me :-) You turn the alarm off with a switch at the bottom. The alarm turns off, but the light stays red for another 4 hours. After that the red light goes off too, and you can turn the switch back on without the alarm going off, if the freezer is back to operating temp.

Temp Alarm going off, when freezer seems to be cooling fine.


You need to check the temp in the freezer to make sure it's down to around 10 degrees. The alarm will go off much above that.

Theft alarm sounds w/o provocation


This sometimes can also be related to the internal batteries in the alarm ECU or alarm siren module going bad. If your handy the internal batteries can be replaced without buying a new replacement unit. Otherwise, the entire module must be replaced ($$$). Lastly, you can have a Saab indy or dealer disarm the theft alarm on the vehicle. You retain your keyless operation, but the alarm is not active. This is done in the programming and adjustment menus in the TWICE unit with the Saab Tech 2 computer.

Freezer will Not Go Below 8 degrees and Alarm keeps sounding


Our manual says it can take our freezer up to 48 hours to get back to the correct temperature. I found that to be the case when we loaded it fully for the first time.
