Is there a little fan back there with the compressor? if so is it turning? also check the outside coil, it may be covered with dust & crap. Sometimes that is all thet it takes. A good cleaning.

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.

Fridge not cooling, Freezer is working (upside down fridge/freezer)


We experienced a smilar problem with your Fisher & Paykle fridge/freezer.
The fan that sends cold air to the Fridge section of the appliance didnt appear to be working leaving the Fridge poorly cooled.
I suggest the first step is to turn the fridge off and leave it to totally defrost.
Build up in ice in the freezer section seemed to have an impact on the proper operation of the fan which seems to relie on a thermostat for its operation.
Having defrosted and cleaned the fridge the problem was solved.
The fans have a delay before switching on after the door is closed. Place a magnet over the door sensor switch and wait to see if the fan works.
The problem could be that the unit has iced over itself over a period of time and defrosting it could solve the problem.

Freezer nice but fridge is very warm


When fridge or freezer compressor is running but contents are not cold, feel the black radiator with the hand. Basically if the radiator is cold there is no gas or a bad blockage or a leak.( Radiator must be nice and warm on one 1/3 of its length.).

Uneven cooling in fridge and annooying alarm every 10 hours!


Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

Leaking water inside fridge


With mine I turned it off for 24 hours until totally defrosted. Checked behind the panel of the freezer and removed one stubborn piece of ice. When I restared the fridge it was all good. I have this problem when we have had a lot of humid weather.

Fisher Paykel fridge stopped working


youre meant to if moved, let it sit for atleast an hour before turning on because moving it disrupts the gas inside. Did you do that?
