Hello, this is Dave. There are several alarms that could cause this. There is an open door alarm but that would cause the lights and display to go out. There is also an over temperature alarm. Could you take temperatures in the refrig in a glas of water and between packages in the freezer to see if it starting to warm?

Thanks. It may not be over temperature but we need to check this to be sure. It could be a bad control but let's get temperatures first.
