It is possible that there is no reset button.
Power outages or spikes usually affect the compressor which provides the refridgeration. It is possible that it may have got damaged. The spike is where the power have gone off but come back on too quickly causing. Spikes usually affect motors, pumps and compressors.

What is 1F code on kenmore elite refrigerator


The Er IF error code indicates that the main control board detects that the ice compartment cooling fan is not working. This will cause a lack of cooling in the ice compartment and will normally result in no ice production. This is something that a service technician will usually need to correct.

My fridge keeps beeping where i would reset the temperature. It was used alot yesterday on a very warm day


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire refrigerator is beeping and you have to reset the temperature. You're stating that it was used excessively on a warm day, it could be that the temperature is attempting to stabilize. If the door was opened and closed a lot then your appliance did not have an opportunity to cool down and that is why the temperature alarm needs to be reset. I would allow your appliance to properly get back to a cool setting, it could take 24 hours to properly stabilize.

If your refrigerator continues to beep reach back out I would be happy to provide you more assistance. -Matt

Kenmore elite french door refrigerator and freezer not cooling


Check the compressor start device. The fans will be running and the compressor fan will be running but the compressor is problaly not running. If it is then it could be the compressor itself that is not oumping.

The freezer component is frezzing continuously.


This problem is related to defrost.

Try manual defrost reset procedure: ----

First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem. The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly and it has to be checked and replaced. you can get the required parts from online sites like:---

www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.---------

If it's again building up ice that means the unit is not defrosting. It's starting the cooling procedure, and then while defrosting, it's not working. The procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located.

This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Freezer door was accidentally left open for about one hour. Now the refrigerator and freezer are not cooling.


If the freezer or fridge door remains open for one hour or few more hours by mistake, then to again get to its proper cooling cycle, it requires approx another 24 hours.And in that also, dont open the refrigerators doors for few hours.If you open, close it quickly.Once it cooling cycle again gets set, then you can use it like you use regularly.But approx it takes 24 hours to get proper cooling.-------- ------------------ But if its already more then 24 hours and there is very low cooling, then it can be internal defrost cycle issue.You will have to do manual reset procedure.The manual reset procedure is as follows:-------- First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check,it will get set to its cooling cycle and work as normal.------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Kenmore 71182100 refrigerator will not cool after clearing drain


Hey Donna! It normally takes 24 hours for your system to go back into it's "normal" mode after it's been off. I would wait until tomorrow and see if it's cooling down properly before you worry. You may call me if you like after you wait the 24 hour period. Hope this helps you! Ella

Kenmore refridgerator c1065094881


It sounds like your defrost cycle has stopped working. unplug your fridge for 24 hours and let it defrost. plug it back after 24 hour and if it starts to cool in the fridge part at about 40 degrees F. you will have to replace one of three parts the Defrost Timer, Defrost Themo or Defrost Element. I hope this helps you.
