I was not satisfied with the service offer and today i have a GE repairman coming to my house to address the issue. I actually turned the frig to turbo cool to get the refrigerator to work and this helped to cool after a while. The expert I was referred to didn't really want to commit to telling me to do anything accept get it serviced and purposing what the problem might be. I do not wish to continiue this service. It took too long to connect with another expert. THank You.

If you just purchased the refrigerator it should be covered by warranty. Call the place you made your purchase from. Problem could be related to a leak in the refrigeration system.

Interestingly, no matter how many times you refuse to recognize that the unit has a major issue, it's not relevant how many experts here tell you the same thing, does it?

Ah well, on to other more receptive folks, eh?

Where is the reset button on my electrolux fridge?


Good Afternoon Friend, thank you for your post! I see the temperature in your Electrolux refrigerator is too warm and would like to know how to reset it. May I please have your model number? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located inside the cabinet, on the right side wall. With this information I can better address the issue at hand. In the meantime, please double check the temperature control. If the temperature is set too warm, set control to a colder setting and allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize. Thank you - Z.

I bought a second hand F&P Fridge Mod N249T about 7 years old..and it keeps feezing all of our food!!! The teperature control shows 1-7 seven, we tried setting it to 1 which we thought would be the...


I was not able to find a manual for your model; perhaps the company has not posted going back this far. Your model seems to be available on the resale market in Australia. If your model is not from Australia, vist the following site http://www.fisherpaykel.com.au/customercare/userguide/ and in the bottom of the webpage select the country the refrigerator was purchased. verify your model number and then go to Customer Care > Find A User Guide. Use the search fields to find your User Guide; if you leave the model number blank and select rerfigertaor you wil get a selection of all the available User Guides for refrigerators.

The Fisher and Paykel site seemed to only has one User Guide for all their refrigeration model but it does not list as applicable for the N249T. See here: http://www.fisherpaykel.com//admin/pdfs//pdf_usecares/837186-Ref_Freezer-UG_NZ-AU-UK-PAC.pdf

However on page 18 it does describe the Temperature Control:

1 is for the warmest setting

7 is for the coldest setting

The Problem Solving Section on page 29 advises that when food is freezing in the refrigerator the temperature setting is not correct or food is placed directly in front of air outlets.

If the unit is not shutting off when the desired temperature is reached there may be a problem with the thermostat.

Hope this is of some assistance.

Refrigerator runs constantly -- shuts off 3X a day for about 30 mins. each time -- bottom freezer model BX 21VW -- bought in yr. 2000 --- Serial # 0008208852


Refrigerators shut off and on time depends on the outside temperature, and how often you open it according the temperature setting. Lower temperature setting would yield less turn off time and higher temp seting would yiel less running time and vise versa.

I have a Maytag refrigerator similar to the current model (GS2625GEKS), I purchased mine in 2003. Serial number unknown. All of a sudden my freezer is way too cold and my refrigerator is not cold enough....


If the number is similar we will have to go with possibilities. Sound like the auto damper has frozen itself shut between the fresh food and freezer compartments. Some are controlled electrically some manually and others are controlled with a thermostat probe. Your thermostat for one side could be defective and not allowing the damper to open. Your refrigerator must have the correct model number to proceed. What I need you to do is look for the vent through the rear of the refrigerator compartment and sometimes leads directly from the same wall as freezer. Many Maytag brands fall under same series and model similarities. The serial number is not as important to the service Tech as the model number. Look around the door frame near floor and kick plate.I can help but I will need the correct model number, Thanks, Sea Breeze
