Beeps 4 times

Hello Viki;

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

This general means you have a door open and are not getting the set temperatures.

1.) Check to see that food in the refrigerator is not extending beyond the edge of the shelves'.
2.) The front of the refrigerator should be higher than the back. Being pitched back assist the doors in staying closed.
3.) Remove the front bottom toe plate or grill. There may be screws holding it in place, if not it just pops off.
4.) You will see two leveling screws in the front, one on each side.
5.) Turn these screws clockwise until you get the desired pitch. Open the door 3/4 of the way. The doors should close by themselves.

If you have a bottom freezer, check for ice build up around the door, preventing the door from closing all of the way.

If this does not help, then you have a cooling problem, bad sensors or worse.

My Samsung refrigerator won't stop beeping and light inside is out

OK we know it's a Samsung Refrigerator probably 1 of about 50 models that Samsung sells. The model number is on a plate inside the refrigerator. If you don't have a user manual use the model number at to view or
download the user manual. If sears has ever sold this model it will be there! Use the troubleshooting section to find out why it's beeping. It may be as simple as needing to clean the door seals so they don't leak air. Remove the light bulb cover if there is one and replace the light bulb with one of the same kind.

I have a kenmore elite side by side. It is about 2-3 years old. When I press the ice/water crushed or cubed buttons the system double beeps (I.e it beeps 2 times). It won't do anything except beep. I don't...

If the child lock is set it will do this. If you try to turn it off and it doesn't work, the control panel will need to be replaced. Is this your problem?

Thanks, Repairman45

We have a KM 630 MAH the code that we are recievein is three beeps in three seconds the freeze back up timer where is it located

It's programmed into the control board. It is something you do not replace separately. I'd look for what is causing the issue. Probably not a board. Look for water valve leaking water thru. Turn machine off and see if water is still running into the machine. If you have filters, be sure they are clean and you have no less than 20 psi during the fill cycle. Let me know if I can help further

first try resetting the board by pushing the reset button on the board. But make note of the number of the beeps before resetting.

in the back of the fridge there is a panel. Remove the cover plate. Look for the buzzer and remove it. This will cancel the annoying beeping noise.
