Your fridge is telling you there is a fault, i'd say one of the 2 fans are not working. If everything is freezing in the bottom of the food compartment then the upper fan is faulty. You have to remove the shelves & remove the rear panel, the fan is in the shute at the bottom, remove, repair the broken wire or replace. Make sure unit is unpluged.

press the select button ( the button that you choose the temperature on the fridge and freezer) and check that the fan on both fridge and freezer are working.

SOURCE: Problem with Fisher & Paykel

so both the freezer and the frigerator are both warm then? If this is the case then you can try to remove the rear panel down where the compressor is leave machine off for about ten minutes then plug the machine back in there isa small box like unit or relay on the side of the compressor if your hearing it click on and off or if you disconnect the wires going to it and shake it lightly to hear if something is rattleing on the inside also if you have a multimeter and a pair of needle nose you can do this to test the relay

Remove the cover on the compressor relay box. The cover is usually held in place by retaining clips or tension clips. There are usually three components inside this box: the compressor relay, the compressor motor terminals and the overload protector. The compressor relay is the largest component and will either be wirewound or solid state. If the part is solid state, then you will have to have a professional test the part, as it requires specific equipment for testing. If you have a wirewound relay, pull it straight off of the compressor.

  • 5

    Use a pair of needlenose pliers to pull the connector off of the relay's terminal. Be sure to pull it off by grasping the connector and NOT the wire. Check both the wire connector and the compressor relay for any signs of corrosion.

  • 6

    After you dust the relay off, take a good look at it. You should see two plug-type terminals marked "S" and "M" and the slip-on terminal marked "L." Set your multitester to read ohms (usually the X1 or RX1 setting). Set the relay on a flat surface so that the "S" and "M" terminals are on the bottom.

  • 7

    Insert one probe of your tester into the "S" terminal and one in the "M" terminal. Your tester should have a reading of "zero" ohms. Keeping the probes inserted in the terminals, turn the relay over. You should hear an audible "click" and the tester's reading should change from "zero" to "infinity."

  • 8

    Turn the relay back over. Now, touch one probe to the "S" terminal and the other probe to the "L" terminal. The tester should read "zero" ohms. Turn it over again with the probes still on the terminals and the tester should read "infinity."

  • 9

    Turn the relay back over. Now, touch one probe to the "M" terminal and the other to the "L" terminal. The tester should read "zero" ohms. Turn the relay over with the probes still in place and the tester's reading should not change -- it will remain at zero ohms.

  • 10

    If your compressor relay passes this series of tests, then your relay is not the problem with your refrigerator. If it fails any one of these tests, then take it to an appliance parts shop and purchase a replacement. Replace everything back in its original position and be sure to remove the 20-ohm resistor from the capacitor before plugging the refrigerator back in.

  • note if you are unable to perform these tests please call a technician if you have any further questions please message me back as well as please remember to rate how this opinion has helped in your appliance repair all in all if your machine is warm its either the relay or the compressor Thanks again

    Why does my fisher and paykel active smart fridge/freezer keeps beeping when I open fridge? As if the fridge has been open for a long time?


    Does the beeping start immediately or does it follow the designed timing as stated on page 12 of the manual? You would have to check with the manufacturer to see if the feature can be disabled. Page 12 of Fisher Paykel Refrigeration User Guide ManualsOnline com

    Fisher paykel refrigerator fault model E521T


    I had the same problem, constant beeping. I removed the fan, tested it with a 12v power supply, worked fine. The beeping and flashing on the control unit was still happening though. I read online that the door reed switches can play up, so i decided to test this. I took a regular household magnet, the type you use to hold the kids drawings up on the fridge and held it against the door reed switch. Beeping stopped, fans kicked in, everything started working!!!! So I concluded that either my reed switch is not being tripped when the door shuts or possibly a reed switch problem? maybe not as sensitive as perhaps it should be..? either way my next port of call will be look at the seals around the door, are they stopping the door from shutting properly? I thought for a temporary measure you could get a strip magnet and put it inside the reed switch housing. It just means your door wont trigger the internal light when opening...

    I have a Fisher and Paykel Active smart fridge. Every few hours it starts to beep, the fridge and freezer is still chilling but i can't work out why it keeps on beeping. I just push the plus or minus sign...


    I had the same problem. The problem proved to be the defrosting element was faulty. The defrost is programmmed to activate every 12 hours or so, and if it does not happen the electronics detects any problem and sets the alarm. Replace the defrost element and everything is fine.

    Uneven cooling in fridge and annooying alarm every 10 hours!


    Hi,

    if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

    thanks,
