Advice:
Try raising the temperature slightly in the aected compartment. Check to make sure the door gaskets are clean and sealing well against the metal cabinet frame. Reduce the frequency of door openings. Let hot foods cool to room temperature and cover foods and liquids.

Water droplets collect in the lower crisper drawer areas.

Issue:
Humidity settings are set too high.
Advice:
It is normal for some wet air to collect inside the enclosed crisper. To reduce the accumulation of moisture, lower the humidity setting and/or raise the fresh food compartment temperature.

Water forms at underside of the crisper glass covers.

Issue:
Moisture given o from wet foods. Door seal leaks or frequent door openings in humid environment.
Advice:
When placing foods in the fridge rst pat them with a dry cloth to remove excess moisture. Check the door gaskets and reduce door openings. Possibly raise fresh food temperature.

Wet air forms droplets of water on the outside edges of the fridge.

Issue:
Warm, humid air in the environment mixes with cooler air at the door gasket areas of the fresh food and freezer compartments causing condensation.
Advice:
A small amount of dew or water moisture is normal. It is best to wipe it down with a dry cloth to improve performance. A slight increase in the compartment temperatures can reduce this moisture formation. Check door gasket for proper seal and clean.

The ice maker has stopped making ice

Issue:
The ice cube height sensor arm has detected a full tray condition. The water supply valve is closed. The freezer section is not cold enough. The water source saddle valve is somehow blocked.
Advice:
To make more ice cubes you may distribute your ice to the center drawer right side (or lower drawer) to increase ice cube harvest. Turn on the water supply valve. Adjust the setting to the freezer to colder setting and allow it to balance within 24 hours. Check the water supply saddle valve for obstruction and replace it if damaged.

The ice making capacity is low.

Issue:
The freezer drawer area is not cold enough. The water supply valve is not at a high enough pressure or not open all the way. The ice maker sensor arm is restricted or out of position.
Advice:
Set the freezer drawer to a colder setting. 1.7–8.4 bar (25–121 psi) and add water booster if too low. Make sure the water valve supply is open all the way. Make sure the water lter is distributing enough water and is not clogged. Make sure the drawer gaskets are sealing and kept clean from dirt or debris.

The ice maker runs continuously.

Issue:
The ice maker level sensor is stuck in the down position.
Advice:
Check the movement of the ice maker sensor arm so it rests in the ‘up’ position. Make sure that no frozen packs or objects are obstructing the ice maker sensor arm.

The ice cubes have a bad odour

Issue:
Uncovered, unwrapped, foods are stored near the ice cube container. The water lter has approached the end of its useful life. The ice cubes have been set for too long a period of time.
Advice:
Cover, wrap, and position frozen foods away from the ice cube container. Check and replace the water lter. Dump out the stale ice cubes.

Cold water not dispensing.

Issue:
The water supply pipe is not open. The water lter is blocked. The water line is blocked.
Advice:
Open the water supply line all the way. Replace the water lter. Check that the water tubes are not kinked or restricted.

The water has a strange odour

Issue:
The water has been stored too long without use. The local potable water source is suspect.
Advice:
Remove 10–12 cups of water and throw away. Check if the odour improves. Contact your local water supply company to check quality of the water.

The water supply pressure is too low.

Issue:
Water pressure level is below specication minimum of 25 psi (1.7 bar).
Advice:
Contact local plumbing supply dealer to install a water booster to obtain 1.7–8.4 bar (25–121 psi) water pressure rating

The inside of the fridge is dirty

Issue:
The inside walls, shelves, and door bins need cleaning. The foods in the fridge have been stored beyond their useful life.
Advice:
Clean all inside surfaces with warm water and a clean soft damp cloth then wipe dry. Wrap and cover foods to extend useful food life.

The door has a closing problem.

Issue:
The door may have food articles or packages that are obstructing closure. The level of the refrigerator is causing the door to shift out of position. The door could be hitting against adjacent cabinets or appliances. The door hinge alignment may require adjustment.
Advice:
Reposition the shelves, door bins, or internal containers to allow the door to close. Ensure the oor is level using sturdy materials that are also non ammable. Provide a good 25 mm (1”) clearance on all 3 sides and on top of the cabinet so doors can open and close freely. Adjust hinges and add spacer clips supplied.

The drawers are hard to move in or out, or will not close.

Issue:
The stored foods are interfering with the slide mechanism. The drawer slides are dirty from food particles.
Advice:
Position the foods away from the drawer sides and spread out the foods evenly within the drawers. Clean the drawer and wipe down the slides periodically so the slide ball bearings move freely

The compressor does not work.

Issue:
The refrigerator is in deep freeze cooling. The refrigerator is not powered on.
Advice:
This is normal for a refrigerator that goes into deep freeze automatically. The period of deep freeze cooling lasts about 30 minutes. Make sure the plug is inserted all the way into the power outlet. Has the circuit breaker tripped? Check and change to a new 13 A fuse and/or reset the circuit breaker. Check the electrical supply to the room. Call the local electricity company.

The fridge operates frequently or operates for a long time.

Issue:
The room temperature or ambient temperature is high. The ice maker is in operation. The doors or drawers are frequently opened and closed. The control settings in the freezer and fresh food compartments are set to cold level. Door and/or drawer gasket seals may be dirty, frayed or cracked. The condenser is dirty.
Advice:
It is normal for the fridge to operate continuously. This is normal – the ice maker adds extra work load in the refrigerator. Try to reduce frequency of door or drawer openings. Raise up the compartment temperatures slightly and allow 24 hours to reach new balance. Clean o the gaskets and/or heat slightly with hair dryer so gasket takes contour of metal frame. Clean the condenser

The compressor frequently cycles on and off.

Issue:
The compartment temperature sensors keep the fridge at the set points causing the compressor to cycle.
Advice:
This is normal. The fridge compressor will provide the required cooling level.

A beeping noise from inside the fridge.

Issue:
One door or drawer of the fridge is open for over 60 seconds.
Advice:
This is normal and will repeat every 1 minute until the door or drawer is closed.
