    living on Maui is the pitts. Can't get a service tech until next Wednesday. Freezer is now at 15 degrees and cooler is at 57 (not cool). Sure it isn't the compressor? Thanks...

    Service tech is coming next Wed. Jan. 5. Let's see if you are right! Sealed parts are still under warranty. Freezer temp is going down, then up. Food thawing. Chill side is warm.

You have a low coolant problem(freon). I would suggest a refilling of coolant gas by a service tech

    since you have mentioned that the compressor is laboring your assumption is more logically correct. I will go with your hunch too,, however if compressor has to replaced the coolant also has to be refilled too.

I have an iridium fridge, bottom freezer. The alarm keeps going off roughly every 8 hours. It can be silenced by pressing the temp select button.

Sounds like it is telling you that you need a service technician. It may be sensing low gas.

Before that though, check the grills on the compressor for fluff blockage. If you find any, vacuum it off.

How do I fix a buzzing sound in my fridge?

Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.

What does OF on the display mean?

If you get the message OF on your Samsung refrigerator here is how to correct it. What OF means is your freezer and refrigerator has or is going to stop and warm up. To correct it push the Light+Freezer buttons for 3 seconds. It will reset to the last temp settings and everything should go back to normal.

Over temp light on and refrigerator/freezer not staying cold.

Extended warranties usually are not worth the cost. My guess is that KitchenAid wants you to pay $73 out of pocket even though it should be absorbed as part of the warranty replacement of the refrigeration system.

Select temp lights go out and compresser tries to

Without a proper model number, it sounds like the compressor overload is is clicking on and off. I suggest calling a certified repair company as this sounds more complicated than a ordinary home owner can repair.
