Had to call engineer. He said that a sealed unit containing gas was faulty and could not be repaired. The motor is running flat out trying to keep down the temperature in the freezer part of the fridge. No option but to replace fridge. Cost Euro 800 and lasted only 5 years.

It's the solenoid on the water valve. Power is getting to it but it's not opening so it just sounds like a buzzer. It's usually located in the back on the bottom where the water source enters the appliance.

The open door beeper constantly going off

I went to find the schematic for your unit to find out what type of sensor is in it. Your manual says it has a temperature warning alert. This is what I found.

.A. Whenever "PCB Control Panel" button\'s pushed, the buzzer rings.

B. After 2 minutes power\'s on, the buzzer rings 3 times.

C. Time of Buzzer: Forced Defrost Mode (3 times), Short Circuit Test (1 time)

D. When door opens, the buzzer rings every 1 minute for 5 minutes.

Be patient here now. Hopefully we will cure this. Allow me to say first that if this were MY fridge I would rope it like a calf, tie it to my truck, and gas it!

Okay, so with further reading it appears this fancy gizmo is supposed to warn of temperature changes due to low freon, door being open and temp drop and so on so basically it could be caused by something you are unaware of or it could be errors.

To make this answer short I am going to post the link to the manual.

I graduated with an associates degree in electronics engineering this past summer and I cringed when I saw your manual so I will try to simplify what you see in that manual and say, unscrew the cap off the top hinge and unplug what you see. That will not harm your fridge and should make it shut up. Page 21 in the link.

Now in case your fridge light has been wired with that buzzer, which is probable since your device was made overseas you may leave it plugged in and check that the door switch isn\'t sticky. Put a flathead screwdriver to it and gently pry it upwards and it should pop out. Once you have it out push it in and out. It should spring freely. It IS possible whoever assembled it never put it in its slot snugly so the door is not touching it as it should. Prying it out and putting it back in may solve this. If the switch does not bounce freely when pushed it should be replaced. The switch can be unplugged to replace it if necessary.

My heart goes out to you. The manual is tough enough for the average non mechanical engineer but is lacking in basic English. Good luck.

New refrig from lowes one week old. now makes ding ding ding ding ding noise 5 times? looked in manual no help

Hell Bill, I am happy to assist you! Sounds like you are referring to the temperature alarm. When the refrigerator is beeping or buzzing, it may be a warning sign of a possible malfunction or an unsafe, interior temperature. To silence the buzzer, you can depress the ALARM OFF button. However, if you have already done this, try unplugging the unit or flipping the household circuit breaker for about ten minutes.

If the alarm continues, it could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the temperature control/board or wiring failure. I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis or the manufacturer directly.

We leave our motor home plugged in. The freezer is always cold and the fridge side isnt. By the time we are ready to come home (a few days) its working fine. Any ideas?

To really give you a good answer, a make and model number would be needed.

Since you are talking about a motor home, I would assume you have a propace/AC voltage unit. And from your indications I would suspect that your unit is low on Freon but it could be many things from a low propane situation to your DC connections being corroded.

Hi there

Maybe nothing

1. The fan in the freezer compartment runs full time, this could be the motor noise you hear

If the temperatures are OK then it can not be the compressor that is running all the time or the freezer would go really low in temperature.

You need to pull out the unit and confirm that it is the compressor that is in fact running all the time, they normally run around 12 to 16 hours each day

2. The other unlikely possibility is if the compressor is running full time then there may be a fault with the compressor, busted suction valve or the system could be low on gas.

Fan noise in freezer of my GE side-by-side refridgerator

You don't have to worry about the ice and frost, Your heater does that for you Your heater comes on and defrost every day. You just need to tighten the screws and clean up the vent where the noise is coming from but I wouldn't worry about it. The temperature on your fridge and freezer is running optimal, You know the saying, if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it....just tap the vent covers every few days.
