Question about Whirlpool ET1FHTXM Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Annoying beeping of the Kenmore refrigerator!!!

We have a Kenmore frig. (approx. 3 y.o.) freezer on top and basic, not fancy. It has decided, for whatever reason, to beep at us. This happened the first time when I left the door open too long. (We're in to 18 months of this!) Since then, it beeps (series of 3 high pitched beeps, pause for 10-15 seconds, then 3 more) for days on end, stops for some days, then resumes once again. Any suggestions on how to de-beep this basic opinionated refrigerator? I've tried shutting off the breaker for a period (sep. breaker), unplugging it for name it, I've tried it. As far as I know. Thankfully, it's in the garage!! Help! I'm going nuts~

    We do NOT have an icemaker in this and the beeping, a sequence of 3 annoying beeps, is NOT that of a fan motor. I'm sure open to any other suggestions, however. Thanks!

    Model #75952, 19.0 cu.ft. It might actually have a door alarm since leaving the door open too long was when it first went off. But it now just goes off when it feels like it, which is most of the time. And the door is shut!!! Looking forward to some helpful info~ Thanks!

    How about Model # 79575952401? Just where inside the frig if this is NOT the #? Appreciate your help~ Mary

I don't believe this model has an alarm in it. The beep you hear maybe the evaporator fan motor, also if there is an icemaker in the frig be sure it is turned off

    I will need a complete model # to look at the parts list for this frig. I looked at the basic number and could not see any door alarm, usually the door alarm will be on the front of the refrigerator.

  • tom weber Jan 24, 2009

    That is not the complete model # that is a stock # model number is located inside the refrigerator on small label

  • tom weber Jan 25, 2009

    If this is a Kenmore ref. there are 3 #'s preceeding the model number to determine who is the
    manufacturer. The model # number is usually located at the very top of the ref section, above the top shelf.either to the rigt or left depending on who made it.

  • tom weber Jan 25, 2009

    From other sources I found out this ref. is made by LG if you can remove the door switch ther should be more than 2 wires to the switch 1 of them is common 1 is for the light and the other is for the alarm, Remove 1 at a time to see which 1 dis connects the alarm. This may work, have not worked on any LG refrigerators of late.

    Does this ref has a digital display on the door? If so there is selection with a speaker on it. To mute the control you press on the speaker display to mute, press again to turn on.

Constant loud noise when frig turns on/comes from bottom

when the compressor is running unplug the ref. and if you hear the noise coming from the compressor then
a ballance spring may be broken inside the compressor.

The compressor will run normally with a broken spring it will just be annoying when it shuts down.

I have an Amana refirgerator with a top freezer and had the same problem. I turned off BOTH the frig and the freezer for 24 hours. That allowed every thing to dry out. It has been running now for a week with no problem.
