SOURCE: Styrofoam inside

There is a piece of styrofoam used in the construction of the air filter that is visible inside the unit. I think its there for noise reduction/insulation purposes and I wouldn't touch it if I were you. Unless you're talking about little styrofoam pieces that may have fallen in during packaging and shipping, I'd leave it alone.

Hope this helps.

press the following buttons in the remote in sequence




Hope this might help, if not try contacting Daewoo Electronics website and put in your model number.

You have a problem in you automatic defrost system. It could be one of the following that is causing it. The defrost timer could be bad, Locate it and rotate the dial Clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one click. The refrigerator will be in the defrost cycle. Wait about 20-30 minutes and if it defrosts and does not restart rotate the dial a little more and it will start. This tells you that the defrost timer is bad. If it does not defrost and restarts after 18-22 minutes the heater or defrost thermostat is bad.

Your freezer section has a defrost system problem. A device (Timer) schedules defrosts, energizes electric heaters which melt the frost, when the temperature of the coil gets above the point where all ice is melted a thermostat opens cutting the electrical circuit for the heater(s). The defrost cycle continues until the time expires (18-22 minutes). Therefore your problem could be any one of the three elements. Timer, heater, or thermostat.

Tru mug chiller won't get cold

Is the compressor running? Is the condenser clean and the fan running? Is the fan inside running? Is there ice on the coil? Those are the first things I would check after I check to see that the plug has power and the temperature control is turned on.

I thought the styrofoam inside the dehumidifier float was packing material & threw it away. Now my dehumidifier gets too full before the "full" sensor comes on. Can I replace the styrofoam?

Hi Kim - I understand that you removed the styrofoam inside the dehumidifier float thinking it was packing material, however I would recommend contacting the manufacturer to verify if it the part is available and can be replaced.

I have a whirlpool refrigerator, model GR9FHMXPQ. I got it about 4 years ago. When it was delivered, it had several pieces of styrofoam lodged in the inside ceiling of the fridge section (below the freezer...

You need to remove all of the styrofoam packing material.
Any insulation material would be installed inside the body of the fridge/freezer. The packing material is there so anything inside the compartment (like metal shelves, plastic holders, etc. don't bounce around during shipping and either scratch up the interior, or break. That is all that it is there for.

Fill Water tank - Ventilate

Hi Mike,

Make sure the magnet flow up, if it flow up and you still get fill water tank then you have to replace the magnet.

If you get ventilate all time, try to remove the filter and try again.
