Hi I have an F20 error when I open our F&P fridge

Contractor's Assistant: Sometimes appliance issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Appliance Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.

There is a continuous beep, beep when i open the fridge or freezer and F20 on the digital display

Contractor's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Appliance Technician should know?

Not really

Contractor's Assistant: OK. Got it. Last thing - JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Appliance Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The F20 is a failure of the flapper heater, usually caused by a break in the wire at the upper door hinge harness. Are you able to inspect that wiring harness for issues?

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
