Control panel lights blink and beep, freezer fan cycles

We recently had our fridge moved from New Mexico to Texas. The unit arrived in good shape and was stored in the washroom of our home for several months. I went to start it up yesterday (Thanksgiving is almost here) and I noticed the temp and water filter lights on the internal control panel blinking and emitting a beeping noise. The fan in the freezer runs in a consistent 3-4 second pattern and the support column between the freezer and the fridge side is quite warm to the touch. Is there a reset function? Is the computer fried? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Control panel lights blink and beep, freezer fan...

The column between the doors being warm usually indicates that the compressor is running properly but the condenser fan at the bottom rear that cools the condenser and compressor is not running. Remove the cover from the back of the machine and verify this fan is running. It could have stuck from sitting for a period of time or something has gotten stuck in the blade during the move.
I am interested in what the fan inside the freezer is doing. You say 3-4 second pattern, is it running a few seconds then off a few seconds?
Please post back with the exact model number from the decal inside the fridge and I will look it up and see what I can come up with.

Fridge & freezer lights and the water display light beep and flash 10-12 times every few hours. Simultaneously a fan motor starts and stops. Any one know what needs to be done to remedy this?

Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.

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.

Whenever I open the door the beeper starts beeping and continues for 19 beeps regardless of whether I leave the door open or close it again. The beeps are at approx 1 second intervels


Whenever the fridge is open it gives 19 beeps actually.In your case even when it is closed it is giving 19 beeps.This is the problem with control board.The control receives the signal when closing the door and stops the sound.Check the wiring connection to and fro the control board to the door.Control board costs high.This is small problem you can just unplug the wiring connection to the door to the board instead of spending more.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Subzero 590: freezer works, refrigerator not cooling

This is a Sub Zero and many technicians do not realize that these units most all run on 2 separate systems. 2 cold controls 2 compressors 2 evaporators. They share a condenser and condenser fan motor. What you are describing is most likely a bad cold control. It is pretty common for these to get some age and go bad. If you are very savvy with repairs yourself then if you access the compressor area and feel that the compressor on the right is cool and the compressor on the left is warm then you know that the ref. compressor has not been running. UNPLUG THE UNIT OR CUT THE BREAKER OFF. Remove the shelving from the fresh food section and the cover to the lights and the panel below the lights and lean the back panel forward to access the cold control. You will see 3 wires to the cold control. The green wire is the ground wire of corse. Unplug the other 2 wires remembering their location on the control unit. Take a jumper wire and jump these 2 wires. If when you power the unit up the right side compressor comes on then you know that your fresh food cold control is bad. Replace fresh food cold control.

Beeping constantly in middle of night

My fridge (E440T but I believe the E522B is similar) also had a broken fan wire. I pulled off the panel and re-soldered the wire. I also created a document for others to follow if interested at I fixed my Fisher and Paykel Fridge Active Smart Fridge.pdf
Thanks to all postings on this site - it really helped a lot.
