Flashing code FO1% on my Whirlpool American Style Fridge/Freezer

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?

Thanks
Etta Paul

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.

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.

Hi Rachel
For your door to close properly take off the gasket from your fridge and wash it with hot water. It will be softer and stick to the fridge much easier.
