My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
There is no reset for the alarm. The alarm goes off when you are not maintaining temperature.
During the time the door was ajar, warm air got into the freezer either icing up and locking the cooling fan or forming a block of ice on the cooling coils (Restricting cooling air flow.)
The best thing you can do, unless you want a $300.00 plus service call to defrost everything, is to turn power off to the freezer. Open the freezer door. Have plenty of old towels to soak up the water in the bottom of the freezer as it defrost.
You did not provide a model number which is located on the inside wall of the freezer. Every 8-10 hours your freezer will completely shout down for 20-30 minutes where only the light works and the defrost heater turns on. The ice build up is too much for the defrost heater to handle.
In some freezers the defrost mode is in the control board, in others it is a separate component that you can repeat trip using a flat head screw drive.
I understand that you are having difficulty resetting your Frigidaire freezer. Do you want to start your freezer on again? If so, depending on your freezer's control panel style, you may have to push the "Up" button three times or the "Down" button three times. What kind of model freezer do you have? You can locate the serial tag (which lists the model number) on the interior wall of your freezer. Once I have more information I can make sure to provide you with additional assistance. -Matt
KM says this is an ice maker. Reset button is on the control board. Board is in compartment on the right side where the power switch is located. Remove 2 screws and remove cover by sliding forward. Watch for wires, do this carefully. On the board, up at the top, is a small, white button. With power on, push the button.
remove the screw(s) and slide the cover towards the front (the cover over the control board near the wash/ice switch.) with the machine on carefully locate the reset button on top of the circuit board and push to reset..
In your web browser, type in hoshizaki.com, along with the actual complete model number to begin with if you don't have access to the manual. You will find a link to the manual. But, to try a NOW thing, dis-connect the power & be sure there is no voltage to the unit. Remove the front cover to locate the "box" generally in the top right corner, though not always there, You should find some information on the inside lid, or on the "CONTROL BOX". Some reset buttons are obvious. Some are red, some look like a small metal tab. It won't hurt to push it in. It will either reset by a "click" noise or nothing. No need to attempt looking inside the "box" as it may create elctrical issues if you don't put it back on correctly. If this didn't help, just call a competent ice machine repair place. It may need a part or may not. Call around 1st. Hope this helped.
It probably has a circuit breaker located on the bottom of the fridge, behind the front filter. Also try looking inside the refridgerator side at the top. It may be red colored to indicate it is safety-related. Just push it in - but don't be surprised if it trips again.
WARNING: RESET ONLY ONCE TO AVOID A FIRE OR ELECTROCUTION SITUATION.
You may have an internal problem, in which case the freezer's circuit breaker is your best friend!
Note that the self-defrosting freezers have a timer that shuts them off periodically so they can defrost. Sometimes the timer does the defrosting in the middle of the day, giving the appearance of a failure. This could be your problem.
Usually right on the control board. It is very small button, either black or white, and is not very easy to see but it is labled on the board itself. Look very closely at the board.
Good luck and hope it helps.
