Refrig overtemp reset beeper went

Customer Question

Hi ***** Refrig overtemp reset beeper went on 3 times in the last 6 hours and both the frig and freezer are getting warmer. I tried vacuuming under the unit front and back and lowered frig to 33 and freezer to neg 2 but still no change also turned on max cool button still no change. MFD is 06-01 and unit was here when I moved in last year. I am wondering if it is worth a service call, could it be freon or is it just time.

Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
Hi, it could be freon. It could also be a faulty compressor or a defrost issue. I would say it's worth setting up a service call. Look on the back panel inside the freezer. Do you see a thin layer of frost on the back panel? If so, you have a defrost issue. If not, the sealed system could be the issue. You would need to remove the back panel inside the freezer to investigate.
