    My Master-Bilt Cooler is freezing everything.  The temperature gauge is always flashing and beeping but there are no instructions on how to reset the temperature.  It appears to be set at 27.

    Thanks so much, thats a lot of info.....as it happens, there was a lot of build up of frost. I cleaned all that out.....took the excess water out of the bottoma dn its still not cooling the fridge and still flashing. It sounds like the fan is going but im not sure where it is to check properly.....anything else? I gues ill just have to have someone come out and fix it.

Hello.

The first thing you need to do is take out the bottom drawer in the freezer and look into the slots in the back panel. Make sure that you can see silver coils, and not a bunch of frost.

If this checks out ok, make sure that the coils underneath are clean and the fan is also turning (underneath the unit).
If all looks ok then make sure the fan in the freezer is running. (You may have to push the door switch if yours has one.) If the freezer fan isn’t blowing however, the freezer will be warm at the top and cool at the bottom, and you fresh food compartment will be warm.

Another thing to make sure is that the light it turning off when the door is closed. Again you would have to push on the door switch. I was amazed to learn when I first started this line of work, that even a little light bulb can make enough heat to cause a problem.
Let me know if everything looks ok and I will go over some other things.

Left door of F/P fridge part for a week. Now red light is flashing, beep stopped but fridge not cold enough.


Hello Jennifer;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

No. Your problem is not defrost.

The normal temperature setting for a freezer is -2 to +2 degrees F. or -18.8 to -16.7 degrees C. The fresh food section should be set at 35-40 Degrees F. or 1.6 to 4.4 degrees C.

Reset your temperature controls to the recommended settings.
Up plug your unit for 10 minute to power down. Plug your refrigerator in.

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.
