The green light flashing is a fault code, usually for a no, or long fill situation, GE has nixed this electronic ice maker and returned to one that looks similar but is non electronic, while your ice maker is probably at fault you may actually have a separate issue causing the ice maker to display a fault code, such as a spent water filter, or low water pressure, or even a bad water valve on the fridge it's self.

Fisher paykel refrigerator fault model E521T

I had the same problem, constant beeping. I removed the fan, tested it with a 12v power supply, worked fine. The beeping and flashing on the control unit was still happening though. I read online that the door reed switches can play up, so i decided to test this. I took a regular household magnet, the type you use to hold the kids drawings up on the fridge and held it against the door reed switch. Beeping stopped, fans kicked in, everything started working!!!! So I concluded that either my reed switch is not being tripped when the door shuts or possibly a reed switch problem? maybe not as sensitive as perhaps it should be..? either way my next port of call will be look at the seals around the door, are they stopping the door from shutting properly? I thought for a temporary measure you could get a strip magnet and put it inside the reed switch housing. It just means your door wont trigger the internal light when opening...

First a note: the defrost system (fan and element) are not on all the time. The defrost fan usually comes on once every several hours (8 hours in F&P fridges with defrost control).

The problem is usually the defrost thermostat. The thermostat is installed in line with the fan and heater element. If the thermostat is faulty the fan and element will not get any power.

The thermostat can be tested using a multimeter. If reading impedance across the two thermostat's contacts the multimeter stays on infinity, then the thermostat is open and must be replaced. A different kind of test is made jumping the thermostat. If the fan and element work with thermostat removed and contact jumped, then the thermostat has gone.

Ah the evaporator fan is the noise.
Either the fan is hitting on built up ice or the bearings in the motor are worn.
If it is ice then you have a defrost problem and you will need a technician to help you there.
If it is the bearings you will need a new fan motor. Again a technician can help you

The temperature light is blinking in my side by side samsung refrigirator. Can you tell me why?

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Your display is showing that a fault has been detected.

Take a look at this link to determine what fault you have under
Step One diagnostics..

There are 13 different faults than can be displayed. Each one of the LEDs in the picture under step one indicate what that fault is by the DIGIT position of the flashing LED. (Legend to the left of picture) Usually that fault is either a component or wiring problem.

Note that the Power Cool and Power Freeze buttons are depressed for 8 seconds to clear any faults. It the fault remains it will reappear again.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Fisher and Pykel Fridge / freezer Active Smart

on reading the user manuals, it suggests actually calling the F&P customer service numbers and telling them the pattern of the lights flashing.

They can ?diagnose the fault from the light sequence and can then tell you what u need to have fixed.
