Question about Electrolux 25.9 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Stainless-Steel

1 Answer

Power fail light, water and air filter warning light, and crushed ice dispenser light stay on all the time.

Refrigerator appears to be working fine, but several warning lights and function lights are on that should not be on. Filters are okay - when you press the filter status buttons the indicator reads okay. COuld this be caused by excessive water pressure? The manual says pressure over 100 psi may cause the filters to fail but it doesn't say anything about warning lights coming on. Our water pressure is around 100 to 120 psi.

    i have the same problem i just purchased these last week and noticed that the power fail light is on, along with the crushed ice light is on, both filter lights are on but when you check them they are good, and when you go to reset them it wont do it, also the control lock light is on but isint locked please help i am very frustrated at this problem.

    Forget the water pressure issue. The problem is the control board. Apparently Electrolux is having a problem because it took 2 months to get the first replacement board, which also failed. I have another board which will be installed Monday. Will update if it works.

    Same problem. Replaced filter but the lights come on, lock comes on etc.

    Same problem here. I am calling Electrolux for service.

    The problem was the control board. The real bad news is they sent three new boards that all had the same problem. Then they replaced the whole unit twice so I'm on my 3rd refrigerator. Having similar problems with my new Electrolux microwave. Have replaced control board once and waiting for 2nd replacement. Would not buy Electrolux again. Sorry to all that made the same mistake.

Your stated water pressure is abnormally high; well systems supply 30-60 pounds of pressure and municipal systems are *supposed* to be around 60# since most plumbing (faucets, showerheads) is designed around that point.
If your pressure has been measured at that level, more than your refrigerator is at risk of failure.

When I start the car there is a 15 second warning sound which is replicated just after the engine is turned off and the key removed.It drives fine and no warning lights appear.


There are several thing that cause the warning sound. Try cycling the headlight switch often the sound indicator id the headlight warning sound that the lights are left on. You can also call the dealership and see if there has been a recall for this problem.

New Jenn-air refrigerator, Model #JFC2087HRS, water filters do not work...


The new Jenn-air refrigerator, model #JFC2087HRS, water filters (UKF8001) do not work correctly. Water flow is slow. I have called the manufacturer but cannot get any help from them. They insist they work fine. I have tried several of the new ones. The problem seems to be that the small ramps on the new water filters are not tall enough to push the small plungers sufficiently into the water dispenser. I have added a small piece of plastic (glued) to the ramps on the water filter in order for them to work better, but not as good as old ones worked (UKF8001AXX). The next best thing is to buy the old filters if you can find them.

I changed my water filter and now i need to turn out the filter warning light.


WATER FILTER CHANGE REMINDER
(Select Models)
For some refrigerator models featuring
water filters, the Water Filter Change
Reminder function monitors the life of the
filter and provides a reminder when it is time
for the filter to be changed.
When the system detects either 12 months
of usage, or the filtering of 416 gallons of
water (whichever comes first), the CHANGE
FILTER
indicator light will illuminate. This
indicates that the water filter should be
changed and the light reset.
To reset CHANGE FILTER light: Press and
hold the LIGHT and LOCK pads until the
CHANGE FILTER light blinks (approx. 3
seconds). The control is now reset for 12
months or another 416 gallons.
Note: The Water Filter Reminder will
operate if the filter bypass is in place.
Please rate me!
Thanks, Sea Breeze

Interior light malfunction and they buzz


Main control board located in white plastic enclosure at rear bottom of unit is bad, a burnt tracing on the board plus a few board component issues. Buzzing noise is from a confused relay. A Whirlpool product issue??? This appears to be a common problem and is discussed in several different forums. Implemented and "no cost" work around as detailed in one of the forums. Unit appears to function properly after repair/re-work.

"Check Oil" warning light comes on at randum


Probably nothing whatsoever to do with you checking the dipstick. On the golf when the warning light flashes, you reset it by opening the bonnet. That is why you think that when you check the dipstick it resets, when in fact it was opening the bonnet. Check your bonnet switch

Ice maker stopped dropping cubes. Fiddled with it and now seems to be working okay, but red light on right side is blinking. Read online that there is a filter that should be cleaned. Where is it?...


I don't know what fiddle with entails, so I can't respond to that portion. However, if it works, just watch it going forward.
If you have filters, change them The date used is for average conditions only, and you might be due now.
The condenser coils under the machine should be cleaned, and your manual should cover that for you.
The machine should be turned off or unplugged when performing that.

Brake lights out at separate times, but both bulbs okay.


i would double check the bulbs, i dont know much about escapes but most cars run a twin filament bulb, one is for taillights, the other for stoplights, if its not that it may be a brake sensor fault or somethings shorting out somewhere.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


I had GE come out and look at it. I wasn't home to ask questions. The repair man basically said it was a 'loose connection' in the back which is where the motherboard is for all the electronics. It took him less than 5 minutes to fix and he was gone.

Thankfully - it cost me zilch. I told a small white lie and said we were still under warranty and they didn't ask to verify. Can I get an Amen!
