Hello kadenmeister ,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, your fridge is a Fisher and Paykel and the lights that control the temperature wont stop flashing. And you have tried turning it off but I have no idea what is going on. How can you fix this!


Try this rather than just turning it off.
This can reset the system.
Turn off the fridge and then unplug the fridge and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.
It should reset the system!!
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

How old is the Fridge?

Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Fisher and Paykel fridge E442B Initially started beeping, and would not stop. I turned the fridge off at the wall and on again and pressed temp control, the green light has turned red. Problem?


If the warranty is still in effect, call Fisher-Paykel, and even if the warranty has expired call. Their support line has many staff who know the operation of the equipment and a warranty is not needed to get their help.

That's my tip - free

Fisher Paykel RF175WDRX1. Why does the fridge beep when I open it?


check the thermostat setting for the compartment
it may not be set low enough so the alarm goes off when the compartment temperature reaches or exceeds that setting
some fridges have a system whereby if the door is open too long then it notifies the user to close the door

Temperature light at back of fridge randomly goes from red/green and the temperature in the fridge does not appear to be stable?


on a fisher paykel I would call them direct, their help desk can walk you through some checks to see what the error is... if I needed service on this unit I would use who they suggest.. because if the servicer does not have access to the factory on FP HE IS GOING TO BE GUESSING WITH YOUR POCKETBOOK in hand... we work on FP everyday and we call often....... I hope this helps.... ken

I have a fisher & paykel active smart fridge the fridge part freezes everything and wont stop beeping when door open


Your fridge is telling you there is a fault, i'd say one of the 2 fans are not working. If everything is freezing in the bottom of the food compartment then the upper fan is faulty. You have to remove the shelves & remove the rear panel, the fan is in the shute at the bottom, remove, repair the broken wire or replace. Make sure unit is unpluged.
