I have a Fisher and Paykel E442B upside down, which is a very similar model, and I just fixed the same problem (temperature was around -4C even though I set the fridge temperature as warm as possible).

The cause of my problem was excessive ice build up on the side of the evaporator coil (which is in the back of the freezer compartment behind the rear plastic panel). I had the same problem around a year or so ago, so I expect it to be a regular occurence. To defrost the coil, I removed all the drawers in the freezer, and the plastic insert by pulling out the bottom of the panel out and rotating it upwards until it released at the top. There are a couple of snap-in tabs holding the panel in, so with a bit of pulling they released. The tabs are either side of the slot at the bottom of the panel.

I then supported the panel horizontally on the top shelf so that I didn't have to disconnect the thermostat wire and the circulating fan wire.
52de81a.jpg With a small fan heater set on low, aimed roughly at the ice buildup on the left hand side of the evaporator coil, I defrosted the ice built up. This took around 2 hours or so. Then put it all back together and it worked fine.

I'm not sure why the ice build up on the side caused the problem, but presumably it interferes with the proper flow of cold air to the fridge compartment.

If you don't seem to have ice build up like I did, then it could be a thermostat problem, or a fan problem (a symptom of which would be fridge being colder at the bottom than at the top).

I'd say you most likely need a new defrost element and evaporator Chassis. You'll most likely find there's a big lump of ice behind the evaporator chassis in the freezer inturn blocking the fridge vent or the defrost element is burnt out icing up te Evaporator. It pays to replace both anyway you'll need to unplug the unit and leave the doors opens for 48hrs to defrost it first. cheers

Download this manual and see page 18:
http://www.fisherpaykel.com/admin/pdfs/pdf_usecares/814943_Mandarin_Ref_Eng_UC.pdf
It tells you to push the runners back into the refrigerator. The manual shows lifting the front of the trays or bins for removal and installation should be in reverse order of removal.

Since your having problems see if you can get the runners to slide out. IF they will not slide out try lifting the runners straight up carefully if there is too much resistance and you feel the runner might break STOP.

You can contact them using this link:

E240B Fridge Freezer door open alarm goes even when door closed.


Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.

Fisher Paykel RF175WDRX1. Why does the fridge beep when I open it?


check the thermostat setting for the compartment
it may not be set low enough so the alarm goes off when the compartment temperature reaches or exceeds that setting
some fridges have a system whereby if the door is open too long then it notifies the user to close the door

The door alarm of my fisher and Paykel E372B fridge goes off when the door hasnt been opened for a number of hours. How can I stop this.


You would notice that when it beeps, there are a series of beeps, which relate to an error code - also, the temperature panel would be most likely flashing the same amount of times the beeping occurs. The code relates to a component failure that the active smart system is having problems with.

For example, 17 beeps would be error code 17 - which relates to the freezer fan is drawing less current than is expected. Either the wiring is open circuit or the fan is faulty.

How do I deactivate the open door beeper?


You can try this special mode, but it will disable the interior lights as well.

You will be required to have both the fridge & freezer doors open, and to push and hold the compartment select MODE button on the display board for 10 seconds.

When the cabinet is in this special option mode the following will not operate:
  • The interior light will not turn on when the PC door is opened.
  • There will be no set temperature lights (LEDs) displayed on the display module.
  • The door alarm will be disconnected and will not sound even if the doors were to be left open.
NOTE: When in the special option mode, the fridge icon will be illuminated, indicating that the appliance is in this mode.

To cancel, you can exit this mode at anytime by pushing and holding the compartment select MODE button for 10 seconds. If not exited manually, the refrigerator will automatically exit this mode after 80 hours.

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.
