Question about Whirlpool 17 cu. ft. / 481 liter Upright Freezer EV170NLSS
Our American American Style Fridge/Freezer is displaying what I think is an error code ie FO1% (flashing). What does this mean, and does it need a service call to fix?
Check the coil at the back of the freezer for ice buildup. Should there be ice build up, have it defrosted and cleaned. If that does not solve it check out the thermistor, also located at the back at a panel. It may have gone bad.

Testimonial: "thanks for the advice i will try it"
SOURCE: it keeps tripping
does it trip as soon as you turn it on. If so then it is ur defrost element this is situated behind the panel in the freezer at the back.
Hope this helps

Your defrost heat element is shorting, resetting will make it work till defrost cycle kicks in and HEY PRESTO""shorts again...very common fault and bugs the hell out of all of us, check it and I am pretty sure that is the fault. Or you are getting water or condensation in the control panel but very rare.
Regards and hope that sorts the issue...Please dont forget to Vote, I do this for free, Russ
