    I have checked everything you have asked and yes there is frost build up. I checked the compressor and it appears to be running and the freezer fan is working when I checked this. The unit is less than 6 months old.

    by any chance do you have the information I need in order to proceed? thanks.

    look in your freezer down toward the bottom do you see heavy frost there as the freezer does all the cooling for the unit is the compressor running or humming and clicking is the freezer fan running open the door and listen on some models you have to hold the light switch down for the fan to run and how old is the unit check to see if the compressor fan is running

    first open the refrigerate door push the light switch 5 times in less than 6 seconds that should start defrost if it doesn't then replace the adc take the cover off the evaporator in the freezer section its the lower panel look to see if the heater is on while the unit is in defrost if it isn't then on the evaporator you will see a defrost thermostat now if pushing the light switch and putting the unit in defrost works but the heater isn't on then change that thermostat its attached to the evaporator tube it clips on and looks like a disc with two wires on it

Set the temperature in the frizer @ fresh food department

I appreciate your post, gianni roma!

From the information you have provided your Electrolux refrigerator is not holding the set temperature. It sounds like it could be a possible issue with your control panel or damper. I would suggest performing a reset on your refrigerator by disconnecting power from it for ten minutes. If a reset does not help correct the issue I would suggest having a professional come out and provide an accurate diagnosis. Best of luck! -Matt

How do I disarm the power fail alert ?

Hi joeeshir - Did the unit previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. After deactivating the alarm and the unit has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, the freezer 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.

My electrolux refrigerater compressor and fan is not kicking on

Hello 1clevergirl - Make sure you have cleaned the unit's coils and behind the toe grille at the bottom/front o f the refrigerator. If you are not hearing the compressor running and it is not cooling contact a service professional immediately. The compressor is constantly meant to go on and off frequently to keep unit at a constant temperature. In this case the refrigerator could possibly have a coolant leak or an issue with the internal sealed system including the evaporator fan.

Sounds like you have a evaporator fan motor. That is what the error code you have indicates, the fan blade could be stalled to.

Can you adjust the temperature on the water dispenser?

The water for the dispenser comes from a reservoir in the fresh food section behind the crisper drawers. So the only way to make the water colder is to turn down the temperature in the fresh food side of your refrigerator. The water dispenser is designed to dispense chilled water, not ice water. hope this helps.
