My inbuilt Whirlpool APM 6528 fridge keeps alarming

A while back, the red 'alarm' light lit along with 3 and 7 temeprature buttons both flashing together. This flashing was also accompanied by a rather annoying 'beep'. Looking in the manual, it recommends I contact Whirlpool and arrange a service engineer, although it does also say the temperature will remain ok. Whilst not ideal, I lived with it for a month or so, but this annoying beep, drove me up the wall. So, I decided to act on this and set about removing the beeper from the circuit board. Removal of the panel from the inside of the fridge was easy and I soon had the beeper off and silecnced forever !!!!!! Since silencing of the beeper, the fridge now seems to be very cold even though the temperature is set to 7 degrees. And the flashing error code remains. . . . Any ideas as to what I can do to fix this thing ? How can removal of a beeper cause the temperture to drop ?
Cheers

Same thing happen to mine. Tried the defrost method but did not work. Called out a service engineer who replaced the thermostat worked for about one year then same thing again. Still beeping so gave up with this fridge. Looking at a different fridge to replace this one.

I have had similar problems with the electronic control module. Replacing the whole module would cost about £160. I have repaired mine by bypassing the electronic controls. The fridge compressor is controlled by a 12 volt relay on the circuit board. I have wired the relay to an extenal frost thermostat (Sunvic TLX9401, £12.50 from toolstation.com) and it now works OK.

Just had one of these with the blinking light, fan pulsating and no cooling. The fault is the power supply section in the control module at the back. It is a 2uF 400VAC capacitor going open circuit. make sure you replace this capacitor with something equal or better rated - it is critical

Hi Heather and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. It took me over an hour but I did find your manual online. I first had to realize this was a UK model. Your manual is here:

http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgwpsrvifuhome001/DOCTYPE/IFU/DOCLANGUAGE/GB

You may have to go to his page first:

http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgwpsrvifuhome001

and enter this product code:

858615915000

Per the users manual there is a vaction mode and it is discussed on page 9 of the manual.

The alarms are listed on page 10 of the manual:

The Vacation mode shuts off the fresh food compartment completely and there is not a temp display. The icon is in the lower RH side of the display window and is sleleced with the menu button. Per the manual you should keep depressing the menu button until the Vacation icon is not longer displayed. (Icon is a beach lounger chair and umbrella)

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
