My Hotpoint FUFL1810P that keeps beeping and the lights inside are flashing when the door is opened, I have reset by turning the power off and on again and also by turning the freezer switch off and on....

Something to think about from the manual for your freezer. Also I would check the temperature of your freezer with a thermometer to make sure it is freezing ok .Troubleshooting
If the appliance does not work, before calling for Assistance (see
Assistance), check for a solution from the following list.
The green POWER indicator light does not illuminate.
• The plug has not been inserted into the electrical socket, or not
far enough to make contact, or there is no power in the house.
The motor does not start.
• The appliance comes with a motor protection control (
see Start-
up and use
The indicator lights are on but the light is dim.
• Pull out and reverse the plug before putting it back in the socket.
a) The alarm sounds.
a) The refrigerator door has remained open for more than two
minutes (the buzzer will stop sounding when you shut the door) or
the correct switching-off procedure was not followed (
b) The alarm sounds and the two yellow indicator lights
b) The temperature in the freezer is too high. Check the quality of
the food products and dispose if necessary.
+ buzzer =
Heating is excessive
c) The alarm sounds and the two yellow indicator lights
as well as the green one flash.
c) The temperature in the freezer has reached a dangerous level.
The food must be disposed immediately.
+ buzzer =
Heating danger
In both these cases the freezer will maintain a temperature of
about 0°C so that the food does not re-freeze.
To turn off the acoustic signal open and close the refrigerator door.
To restore normal operation bring the FREEZER OPERATION knob
setting to
(off) and turn the appliance on again.

The motor runs continuously.
• The SUPER FREEZE button has been pressed (rapid freezing):
the yellow SUPER FREEZE light is on or flashing (

• The outside ambient temperature is very high.

My GE does not freeze nor does the refrigerator work all my food defrosts and goes bad. I unplugg it and plug it back then it starts freezing again. But after maybe two days it stops working again.

may have a faulty thermister device. This could be telling the freezer to go into defrost mode or it might be the timing circuit for the defrost cycle.
Worth getting it checked out by a licensed fridge repair person.

Frig side by side model glrs267zcq1 freezer cool but not frozen no ice

Hello friend, thanks for your post!
I see your Frigidaire refrigerator is not freezing in the freezer section but keeping your fresh food side cool. Some possibilities could be your refrigerator stuck in defrost mode, the control panel, or sealed system. I would recommend performing a reset on your appliance which would be flipping your household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If that does not resolve your issue I would seek assistance from a professional to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. -Matt


Why my side-by-side refrigrator is not cooling and freezer is warm too.

Check your compressor if overheating.

Observe the running condition of the compressor.

Check if your compressor is running. If compressor is running then you have a freon leakage or insufficient freon.

If not check your thermostat if working properly. (Get a multi tester and check for continuity. at normal temperature the circuit should be closed)

If thermostart is working properly then check your OLP(over load protector) which is attached to your compressor. it should be closed circuit.

Refrigerator and freeze not cooling

Hi there! If your side by side refrigerator unit is not cooling properly there could be several causes. The damper door, between the two doors, is not functioning properly and not allowing the freezer's cool air to move into the refrigerator's side to cool everything down. You also could have a clogged sealed system line or faulty compressor. Do you hear the unit running as normal? Do you notice any side of the unit, or external area, that is severely warm/hot to touch? Make sure the unit is clear of debris underneath and around any coils or connections outside of the unit. You may want to power cycle the unit by unplugging it or turning the circuit breaker off to it for a few moments. If these steps do not prove to be successful, please contact a professional for further assistance.

GE Refrigerator Repair Guide

Is there a work around for installing a new Temp Control circuit board in a GE Refrigerator Model # PSS27NGMA WW. Orig bd has 3 connectors and new bd only has 2 connectors. I am attempting to replace...

I have a feeling that the temperature control board is not the problem. The fresh food compartment has two thermistors that relay information to motherboard through your control panel. If thermistor is bad or covered by an item it will continue to cool and freeze fresh food. Your air damper between freezer and fresh food compartment may also be wide open.

Refrigerator portion has quit working but freezer still works.

The problem is most likely either the defrost timer, and/or the defrost heater element(s) are faulty. The problem is that the defrost heater elements are not functioning properly and the evaporator core is actually freezing up and blocking the air flow through the evaporator core and also freezing up the thermal sensor, and when that happens there is no longer enough cold air being circulated through the refrigerator (that is actually how the unit operates and air must be able to flow through the evaporator core and then be circulated throughout the refrigerator to properly function) and as a result the refrigerator stops functioning and food can even thaw out in the freezer although the freezer seems to be iced up. (Usually at the rear wall where the evaporator core is located)

(Air flow through the evaporator core and cold air circulation and re-circulation through the refrigerator is performed by the air circulation fan and it also must be functioning)

Be sure to only use a blow dryer (with a towel on the bottom of the freezer) to thaw out the evaporator core and do not use any hard or sharp objects or the evaporator core can be damaged. The defrost timer can be located inside of the refrigerator itself, (see lower image) or it can be mounted outside usually either behind the air intake cowl or kick panel at the front base of the refrigerator, or most likely located behind the service panel on the rear of the refrigerator, and usually if the defrost timer is turning then it is most likely working, however the defrost timer can move very slowly and you can place a mark on the timer and the housing to check after about fifteen minutes to see if the position on the defrost timer has changed. The deforst timer on newer digital models can be built into the circuit board and is not a seperate timer mechanism.

Here are some images that should be similar to your situation to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.




Ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food

Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.


Frost in Freeze

Hi Frezer Frost.
It sounds like your defrost circuit in the refrigerator has gone south. This melts the ice off of the cooling coil in the freezer section every 8 - 10 hours of run time.
If you are old enough to remember the manual defrost refrigerators, that is why you had to defrost them occasionally. The ice layer on the coil acts as an insulator, preventing the coil from working properly.
