Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
We just purchased a Whirlpool WTV45972 NFC IX today. We waited 2 hours before turning it on and another 4 hours before putting food in. However, after I stocked the freezer, I noticed that the warning (exclamation mark) light is on and the freezer temperature panel lights are blinking. Several hours later, the lights are still on and blinking. The unit seems to be working; the refrigerator and freezer sections are cold. Any idea what's going on?
New Refrigerator / Freezer usually takes up to 12 hours to get the food down to temp and the inside air temps to stabilize...
Now, try explaining that to a BSN who is required to take hourly temp readings on a refrigerator and just loaded it half full of warm soft drinks and is opening and closing the door repeatedly retrieving supplies.
You lower the temp to "suit" (shut 'er up) and tomorrow they're calling you back because it's too cold...

SOURCE: Refrigerator malfunction
samsung units have duel cooling. that means there is a evaporator in the freezer and the fresh food section. it is possible that the temp sensor in the refrigerator section could be bad. and they have been known to have defrost problems there to. the samsung is a complicated unit and its hard to describe how to repair since there is a lot of electronics that control everything. the best thing I could say is to unplug the refrigerator for a few minuets. sometimes this will reset everything and start the unit back to the factory settings. if that does not work I would call for service. hope it helped you some

SOURCE: Freezer alarm keeps going off..
Mate prehaps the defrost element could be burntout thus no auto defrost and the big freeze and the alarm, when you switch off the defrost starts and the alarm resets?

I called the KitchenAid customer support number. Found out that control goes off when the temperature of the fridge is above 48 degrees (i.e., over a few days, the food would be spoiling). This is not the case for ours, since everything seems to be working fine. They said there is probably something malfunctioning with that button/control, and there is no manual turn-off mechanism. We have to call someone to come and fix it.
