That code means the fridge is not detecting any cooling and it pertains to the fridge overheating. IF you keep having to reset it then you could have something going on with the cooling unit. Once the ammonia solution inside the cooling unit stops moving it can cause the fridge to start to overheat and then you will get that code. What you might want to try is a small fan on the back of the fridge pointing upwards to see if that helps out at all, make sure all the vents for the fridge are clear and clean. Low DC voltage can also cause this code to come up so make sure you always have over 12 volts.

Normally when a cooling unit becomes blocked it needs to be replaced. Sometimes if you tap the coils with a rubber mallet it can help get the solution inside the coils going again, or flipping the fridge a few times and letting it stay level for about 12 hours.

Hope this helps some, If you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
Robert
