Hi Clair, thank you for allowing me to assist you.

When the refrigerator is beeping or buzzing, it may be a warning sign of a possible malfunction or an unsafe, interior temperature. To silence the buzzer, you can depress the ALARM OFF button. However, if you have already done this, try unplugging the unit or flipping the household circuit breaker for about ten minutes.

If the alarm continues, it could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the temperature control/board or wiring failure. I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis.

hector...this sounds like icing up! First thing is to defrost this unit. The ice is preventing air flow over the coils. Shut down and get warm air to the coils. Then, let everything dry. If you leave off and open for 2 days, this will do it. Causes: humid conditions, 'window shopping' or bad gaskets. If the gasket surfaces are dirty, clean them. Test any questionable areas by taking a 2-3 wide strip of paper and close the door on it. If the paper pulls easily, the gasket is bad.

Now, clean out the condenser coils. They are located in the back or under the unit and are always painted black. Then, have a look at the compressor. It is that big black thing in the bottom with pipes sticking out of it. Look at the larger pipe. When you start the unit, it should frost and then either dry off or condense water after about 5 minutes. If it stays frosty or is not cold, you need gas. If the unit passes all these tests, you may have a defrost timer issue. Let me know.

Good day. My Samsung fridge/freezer SR-S22FTFB runs normal for the first few hours when been switched on, both fridge and freezer temperatures were set for (- 18 and 2), both fans are running and when


Hello Danie;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

The normal setting for a freezer is -2 to +2 degrees F., and the normal setting for the fresh food section is +35 to +40 degrees F.

You only have one source of cooling and that is your freezer. With the settings that you have, you are asking your unit to do what it is not designed to do.

The ice maker is struggling because if it is a cast steel ice cube mold, the heater beneath it is not designed for the current to break the ice cubes free @ -18 degrees F., or if you have a plastic flex ice cube mold it is too ridged to flex enough to break the ice cubes free. Normally your ice maker should dump 8-10 times in a 24 hour period.

A note on food storage. Make sure you do not overload your freezer of fresh food section to the point where food product extends beyond the edge of the shelves.

No alarm sounding but red light is flashing?


Warning light (red)
If the temperature warning light (4) lights up, it
indicates that the temperature within the freezer has
reached a level where the safe food storage is no
longer ensured. When the freezer is first switched on, the warning light will stay on until the temperature has dropped to
a safe level for the storage of frozen food.

Temperature acoustic alarm
This appliance incorporates an alarm which gives off
an audible signal whenever the warning light comes
on. This signal can be temporarily stopped by
depressing the push button for fast-freezing (6).
The fast-freezing push button can be released as
soon as the warning light is off.

Open door acoustic alarm
This appliance also incorporates an alarm which
sounds if the door is left open for more than 60
seconds. The signal will be stopped when the door is
closed again.

Hi Rachel
For your door to close properly take off the gasket from your fridge and wash it with hot water. It will be softer and stick to the fridge much easier.

My hotpoint ff187e fridge/freezer keeps bleeping and flashing how can i fix this? it is only 18 months old.


Turn the second knob at the top to off (freezer knob) turn the fridge freezer off. Then turn it back on. That may sort it. Or you may need to totally defrost the machine as there could be some ice blocking some vents. May need to remove the back panel of the freezer for this (inside).
