Unfortunately this was a firmware bug in the early models. The "CC" is simply indicating that the temperature reading is under 0 degrees. The actual problem is that the thermistor curve is implemented in firmware via a lookup table. Temperatures below -10 fall out of the table and the firmware incorrectly interprets this as being a hot temperature.

The only fix is to replace the control.

Freezer not working when its cold in the garage.


Where do you keep the fridge? If you keep it outside then most likely the condensor coils in the freezer may be freezing over and the only way to fix that is to keep it above 40 degrees outside the fridge.

Rear window washers work in all temperatures. Front washers work only when outside temps are above 0 ! Once temps are below zero there is nothing!!!


Sounds like you got it. Water is freezing up the wiper motor or wiper transmission at a certain temp due to water leakage in what is supposed to be a sealed area. (inside wiper motor, wiper trans linkage). "SOUNDS LIKE" water may have seeped in the moer seal & froze it or stripped the gears of the wipers? Good Luck Frank M

Heater will not activate until outside temp. is above 40 degrees


If you have a heat pump the compressor is locked out below that temp. If you have a dual fuel - hp/gas, the gas burners should come on as would the electric heaters if you have electric heat as backup.

On a Friedrich in wall AC/Heater in the heat mode in the digital display while the unit is working fine I get a flashing 08 alternating with the temp of 74. Model # PDE15K5SB-A is this a trouble code


This is an error code for "Unit cycles more than 9 times per hour". The service manual says the possible causes are "Unit oversized" and "Low load conditions".

Make sure there is no grease in the rails. This can congeal and cause this problem. The 'up force' control is on the panel where all those white wires go. You can try increasing this also.

Climate control display for Outside temperature


Had the same problem, replaced the ambient air temp sensor in front of the radiator. Cost is like 10-15 bucks. Don't worry if temp doesn't change right away. Took me about 5 miles and then it worked great.

Top mounted freezer on refrigerator not working


Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.

Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.

Freezer will not work due to out side teperature being low


Sorry, not doable. Temp in garage below 50 degrees will cause problems with any domestic fridge or freezer. The soda machines you see outside actually have heaters in them so they can work in the winter. Hope this helps!
