Question about Refrigerators
I have the same fridge (stainless steel virtuoso) and when the fridge section stops cooling you have to turn power off. Then remove everything from the freezer including the shelf. Next get a pointy object and remove the two plastic screw covers located on the back inside plastic freezer panel, Next remove the two phillips head screws securing the panel in place. Next (and this is a little tricky) get two solid forks and lever the back interior panel off, thereby exposing the cooling system of the fridge. Next get a hairdryer and completely defrost this item, and then reassemble. Switch power back on and your fridge will be fixed, and cooling like a champion! plus you have saved hundreds by not paying ripoff "technicians" I have to do this every six or seven weeks because of the high humidity here in Darwin, the freezer is "frost free" but the cooling system still ices up, and this is what blocks airflow and stops the fridge cooling.

More then likely your problem is that its not defrosting correctly in the freezer and the ice has built up behind the panel and not allowing the cold air down into your refrigerator.

If it is kicking the circuit breaker out in defrost mode, then the defrost timer is faulty. It would be best to just replace the timer instead of checking the wiring schematic. Look at www.partstoday.com for helpful illustrations on parts and identifying pictures.

SOURCE: Fridge/freezer beeping
There is a lever switch usually above the door (when door is in open position) on the fridge cabinet. Not on the actual door. The beeping should stop if this lever is pressed. If the door is positioned correctly it would depress this lever when closed. It may be that the door adjustment is slightly out. If the beeping does not stop when depressed, then your printed circuit board (located usually above the door) is faulty and needs to be replaced.
