    I have the same problem, coupled with a constant loud clicking, flashing of display and ice cube door light (when switched on) and,

    filtered water dispensing water in 'spurts'!. I have changed filter, cleaned under appliance etc. Can anybody suggest anything to suggest the cause of the problem/problems and how to rectify them?

    thanks

    I have the same problem. We have to turn the freezer off/on to reset the alarm. Its very annoying. The freezer compartment seems fine and food is perfectly frozen. This can happen any time night or day, not nice at 3am!!



    Loosing patience with it. Very close to ripping the buzzer out.



    Try pressing the "no alarm" button which intermittently stops the noise, and reduce how much ice you hold in the ice bucket i found helps.

I had this on my S20brsb they said it was "change filter", I did but it didnt go away. They came to look at it for a fee, fitted a new board alledgedly and charged me £200.00 it failed again after 13 months so Im back to square 1. Hope you have more luck, try the filter it might ork for you.

What does an O F fault code mean on a frigidaire refrigerator mean


Sounds like off to me. An open sensor will be displayed in either the ff display or the freezer display. if it is an open freezer sensor it will display in the freezer display. A communication failure will show as a SY CF, and a communication error will display a SY CE.

My frigidaire gallery refrigerator model number DGUS2645LF3 is showing an error code "5b" and nothing inside works.


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You are in the Sabbath Mode.

The Sabbath Mode is a feature that disables portions of the refrigerator and its controls in accordance with observance of the weekly Sabbath and religious holidays within the Orthodox Jewish community.
Sabbath Mode is turned ON and OFF by pressing and holding "?" on freezer temp and "?" on refrigerator temp for five seconds. The display shows "Sb" while in Sabbath mode.
In the Sabbath Mode, the High Temp alarm is active for health reasons. If a high temperature alarm is activated during this time, for example due to a door left ajar, the alarm will sound intermittently for about 10 minutes. The alarm will then silence on its own and a red high temperature icon will display. The high temp icon will continue to display, even if the door is closed, until the Sabbath mode is exited and the icon reset. The refrigerator will function normally once the door is closed, without any violation of the Sabbath/Holidays.
If this does not solve the problem you have a bad control board.

Temp display reads 92 (hi temp) but the interior temp is 0.


No. Sounds like the intern temp sensor is bad, missing, or not connected. 92 is probably the max reading it can display. The unit will probably operate continuously, be much to cold, and cost a ton to operate. I assume you bought this from Sears. Call them to replace the freezer. Should be no problem.

Hi Heather and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. It took me over an hour but I did find your manual online. I first had to realize this was a UK model. Your manual is here:

http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgwpsrvifuhome001/DOCTYPE/IFU/DOCLANGUAGE/GB

You may have to go to his page first:

http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgwpsrvifuhome001

and enter this product code:

858615915000

Per the users manual there is a vaction mode and it is discussed on page 9 of the manual.

The alarms are listed on page 10 of the manual:

The Vacation mode shuts off the fresh food compartment completely and there is not a temp display. The icon is in the lower RH side of the display window and is sleleced with the menu button. Per the manual you should keep depressing the menu button until the Vacation icon is not longer displayed. (Icon is a beach lounger chair and umbrella)

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Refrigeration problem


Sounds like a main board problem cause the temp should not be accurate one minute, then way off the next. I would have someone look at this cause it would be difficult to figure this out without being there to troubleshoot it

Displays pictures remaining with power off


I'm not sure what exactly your question is but this sounds normal. My D50 does the exact same thing. It displays the number of frames left on the LCD on top of the body when a card is in, and an 'E' when it is not, even when the camera is powered off. The only way to comepetely turn this LCD off is to remove the battery from the camera.
