Have you cleaned the condensor? This message comes on when the control senses the compressor runs without stopping for too long. Have you removed the cover and cleaned the condensor lately?

Since I don't have a handbook, I don't know where to start

What cover
Expert:  Dave replied 7 years ago.
You have to remove the top cover. There are three screws when you open the door along the top. Then there are 2 springs holding on the top cover. When you remove the cover you can see the condensor along the right side, this should be cleaned every six months. Use up and down strokes with a vacuum with an angled brush, or a soft bristle brush with a vacuum hose held next to the brush head.
