SOURCE: Problem with Fisher & Paykel

so both the freezer and the frigerator are both warm then? If this is the case then you can try to remove the rear panel down where the compressor is leave machine off for about ten minutes then plug the machine back in there isa small box like unit or relay on the side of the compressor if your hearing it click on and off or if you disconnect the wires going to it and shake it lightly to hear if something is rattleing on the inside also if you have a multimeter and a pair of needle nose you can do this to test the relay

Remove the cover on the compressor relay box. The cover is usually held in place by retaining clips or tension clips. There are usually three components inside this box: the compressor relay, the compressor motor terminals and the overload protector. The compressor relay is the largest component and will either be wirewound or solid state. If the part is solid state, then you will have to have a professional test the part, as it requires specific equipment for testing. If you have a wirewound relay, pull it straight off of the compressor.

    Use a pair of needlenose pliers to pull the connector off of the relay's terminal. Be sure to pull it off by grasping the connector and NOT the wire. Check both the wire connector and the compressor relay for any signs of corrosion.

  • 6

    After you dust the relay off, take a good look at it. You should see two plug-type terminals marked "S" and "M" and the slip-on terminal marked "L." Set your multitester to read ohms (usually the X1 or RX1 setting). Set the relay on a flat surface so that the "S" and "M" terminals are on the bottom.

  • 7

    Insert one probe of your tester into the "S" terminal and one in the "M" terminal. Your tester should have a reading of "zero" ohms. Keeping the probes inserted in the terminals, turn the relay over. You should hear an audible "click" and the tester's reading should change from "zero" to "infinity."

  • 8

    Turn the relay back over. Now, touch one probe to the "S" terminal and the other probe to the "L" terminal. The tester should read "zero" ohms. Turn it over again with the probes still on the terminals and the tester should read "infinity."

  • 9

    Turn the relay back over. Now, touch one probe to the "M" terminal and the other to the "L" terminal. The tester should read "zero" ohms. Turn the relay over with the probes still in place and the tester's reading should not change -- it will remain at zero ohms.

  • 10

    If your compressor relay passes this series of tests, then your relay is not the problem with your refrigerator. If it fails any one of these tests, then take it to an appliance parts shop and purchase a replacement. Replace everything back in its original position and be sure to remove the 20-ohm resistor from the capacitor before plugging the refrigerator back in.

  • note if you are unable to perform these tests please call a technician if you have any further questions please message me back as well as please remember to rate how this opinion has helped in your appliance repair all in all if your machine is warm its either the relay or the compressor Thanks again

    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

    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.

    Our upside down fridge/freezer started to beep. Upon opening the fridge the thermostat lights on the back was flashing red then green then red again anyone help?

    This is a connection issue between one of the temperature sensors and the electronics, the plugs on the sensors need to be removed and cleaned with contact cleaner and you need to make sure that the contact are pushing firmly against the circuit boards, there are 2 control units, one behind the fridge beside the compressor and one in the back of the fridge which you get to by simply pulling the middle rear panel out after removing the shelves, just be careful as you can damage the plastic.
