Hi- could be many things, but first check if the coils are clean. they need to be able to breath and dissipate heat. Does it run constantly? Was the door open. check for obstructions and close it. Allow time for it to reset.

Is the refrigerator cool and functioning correctly? If not, it may be the compressor.
Check to see if the evaporator coil is clogged with ice. It looks like a small car radiator, with aluminum fins. If the defrost is not working, it will be clogged with ice. Transfer food to a cooler and examine it. Can't get to it, try an old fashion defrosting, and see if it works. If it does, you may need a new control board.

Hard to say without seeing it.
Good luck

H 1 Flashing


This is actually stating "HI", as in either the refrigerator or freezer, temperatures are Hi and not at a safe level. First, press any button to stop the alarm and clear the HI temperature. If you are still receiving the alarm, I suggest checking the freezer, to make sure that everything is still frozen, and nothing is defrosting as, well as checking the refrigerator temperatures. If things are defrosting or the temperature is Hi in your refrigerator, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, Give your freezer 24 hours to stabilize at the default temperatures of 0 degrees for the freezer and 37 degrees for the refrigerator.

What does it mean when the freezer flashes h 1


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer is flashing an "H1" code. This is actually stating "HI", as in the freezers temperatures are Hi and not at a safe level. I suggest checking the freezer, to make sure that everything is still frozen, and nothing is defrosting. If things are defrosting, I suggest resetting your freezer, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Give your freezer 24 hours to stabilize at the default temperatures. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your freezer status has changed successfully. Please leave me the model number of your freezer, if you do need more troubleshooting, this way I am able to better assist you. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

How do you activate the flash defrost function on a Kenmore 16082 model? I can't find any flash defrost button.


Hi

Not all these models were fitted with a flash defrost plunger, if fitted it is inside the lid on the left hand side.
You will need to remove all the product from the freezer and store it elsewhere.
1. Pull out the flash defrost button
2. Put a chock of wood or similar to prevent the lid from closing (if the lid closes it will stop the flash defrost)
3. Wait until all the ice has melted then clean out the casing, some of these models have a drain plug in the base, (put a shallow tray under the outlet to catch the water) others you will need to mop out the water.
4. Push in the flash defrost button and wait for a couple of hours and then you can reload the freezer.

If there is no flash defrost button then follow the above instructions after you have emptied the freezer, all you need to do is switch off and unplug the freezer then go to 2. above. When finished plug back in and reload.

Regards

I have a hotpoint freezer which is self defrosting but its icing up and warning message keeps flashing up


There is defrost timer, that will shut off the freezer and turn on a heating element that quickly defrosts the cooling fins. then it cycles back on. If any part of that system goes out the freezer will not defrost.

I have to keep the temperature turned up to 9 in order to keep the food at 45 degrees. The fridge is only 3 years old.


If it's the freezer control you keep at 9, it's probably a defrost problem. If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.


If it's the fridge temp control you're talking about The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..
