The DE error comes up when the refrigerator has not detected a defrostcurrent within a certain amount of time. This is most often the resultof a burnt out defrost heater. The refrigerator will likelykeep working for a week or so until the frost builds up and blocks theair flow over the evaporator (the cooling coils behind the back wall ofthe freezer). The defrost heater is located at the bottom of saidevaporator.
You can try your zip code in and look for a servicing dealer.

My frost free fridge freezer is working but flashing de on the front. I'd like to know what it means

Error codes are brand (and often model) specific. "de" likely indicates something in the defrost process, especially on G.E. Check for ice build-up in the freezer cooling coil. The control board would be suspect, but must be checked to confirm the precise fault.

GE Profiel model TPX24PBBE; getting "DE" fault. Can reset with "system check" and "cubed ice" buttons but problems return in a few days.

this code means the unit has not defrosted in the last 48 hours and may indicate a defective defrost timer or associated defrost components,try removing the toe-kick panel at the floor in front of the refrigerator,in there will be a small 2" X 2" box with 4 wires on a connector going to it,turn it until you hear a click and the fans stop,it will then be in defrost cycle,then look inside freezer and see if you see orange glow from defrost heater element and hear popping and sizzling sounds from ice melting and hitting element

The ice maker has stopped working , a red light is flashing.

according to the led flash cycle, you can figure this out. if you open the freezer door and the light flashes two times, that is normal. if you close the flapper on the left side of the freezer, the light should remain lit, and that means that the optic system is functioning correctly. there is a diagram behind the vent panel on the bottom front of the fridge.

How to change the water filtration light from red to green?

On mine, there is a button combination that resets the alarm. Yours may be different. The bottom buttons, one left, the other on the right. Mine say "ice type" and "child lock". Holding them both in for ~5 seconds resets the alarm. Try this.

Kenmore 27 refrigerator flashing "de" on front panel

it is defrosting, meaning its a self defrost refrigerator and it would defrost the evaporator coil so that the ice would not build up and block the air passing it.

it normally happens every 8 hours if it is a mechanical timer, or as needed if it is an electronic timer.

Hi Tim, there was a service flash out on this model which has to do with the circuit board in the dispensor. Frigidaire has redesigned this board causing your problems. This should be covered under this service flash. The number of the service flash is 46-470. The solution is to replace the water filter and dispenser board. Contact Frigidaire and inquire about the service flash. Refers that were included in this flash have the serial numbers between LA113---- to LA146----. If yours fall into this range you should be covered. Circuit board kit number is 240533603. Your model is included in this back.
