Whirlpool High Temperature Alarm Keeps Blinking

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: over temperature reset button keeps ringing and blinking

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.

Purchased yesterday and today it is making 3 beeps about every 2 minutes


Hey Carmen, thanks for your post!
From the information that has been provided you purchased your Frigidaire refrigerator yesterday and it is beeping every two minutes. This could be the high temp alarm or alert feature inside of your refrigerator. With a new purchase you may hear the beeping until the temperature has stabilized and this may take up to 48 hours. A reset could help correct the beeping as well and you can perform a reset on the refrigerator by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. If you need any additional help please contact your manufacturer directly for warranty coverage. -Matt

HIGH TEMPERTURE MESSAGE FOR FRIDGE AND FREEZER


Hi Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

Did your Electrolux refrigerator previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will typically sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. Is your refrigerator beeping or did the alarm turn on? If so, first deactivate the alarm to your refrigerator by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your refrigerator. After deactivating the alarm and your refrigerator has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, your refrigerator may possibly have a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause. Best - Z

My refrigerator has a temperature alarm that keeps sounding every few minutes, how do I reset it the alarm?


Hi Friend, that's a great question!

The alarm of your Frigidaire refrigerator may typically be reset by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. It is good to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your refrigerator. After deactivating the alarm and your refrigerator has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, your refrigerator may possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend reaching out to a professional to proceed further. Best - Z

Why my fridge freezer keeps beeping four hort beeps


Temperature alarm
If the temperature becomes too warm, an alarm will sound and the temperature display will flash. The temperature the appliance is set at will determine when the alarm is triggered.
The alarm will sound and the display will flash under the following conditions:

  • - whenevertoomuchwarmairflows into the appliance, for example when food is being loaded, re-arranged, or taken out.
  • - wheneverlargeamountsoffoodare being frozen at once.
  • - whenevertherehasbeenalengthy interruption of the power supply. Door alarm
    If the appliance door is left open for longer than approx. 60 seconds, the alarm signal will sound.

Switching the alarm system ON
The alarm system is always active. It does not need to be switched on manually.
Switching the alarm OFF early
Once the set temperature has been reached in the freezer section, the alarm signal stops and the temperature display stops blinking. If the alarm signal bothers you, it can be switched off early.
^ Press the alarm off button. The alarm signal will stop. The temperature display will continue to blink until the set temperature has been reached. The display then stops blinking, and shows a steady reading. At this point, the alarm system is ready again if needed.

When i turn on my camera it says battery temperature high, and wont let me use my camera. What do I do?


To clear your warning message

  • Battery Temperature High
  • 1 Press the "Power" button on the camera to turn it off. If the flash is blinking, the camera will turn off automatically after 30 seconds.
  • 2 Set the camera aside and wait for at least half an hour for the battery to cool. If you have a spare battery, take the old battery out and insert the new one.
  • 3 Press the "Power" button to turn the camera back on.

The oven keeps blinking F2 what does that mean


F2 Heating mode high temperature This alarm is activated when the ERC senses a runaway heat condition or when the temperature exceeds "runaway limits". The ERC will beep until the cancel or another function is selected. If the alarm repeats the F2 code check the oven sensor and wiring after first checking for a stuck relay. If alarm goes away verify the oven will complete a clean cycle without any type of failure.
