Customer Question
Hi! Our Siemens fridge freezer...
Hi! Our Siemens fridge freezer started beeping last night. On the Freezer panel 18 was highligted and blinking. I switched off and on and it stopped but it was still blinking in the morning. The freezer was also louder than normal I thought (or maybe I was paying more attention). Door was firmly closed and seal seemed fine. Fridge is 5 years old...
The type of fridge freezer is a Siemens KI34NP60 (Bought in Germany)
Is it dangerous and can it be fixed?
Thank you,
Sofia

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I do not think the issue is dangerous, no. Turn the power off at the mains for at least 4 hours. That will allow the electronics to completely reset. Does the behavior change at all? Can you hear a fan running in the freezer section? Can you see any frost on the back wall inside the freezer?

Hi! Thanks for the advise. I tried this and left it for 5 hours (just to be safe) but it started beeping again after 40min...
Are there any other things I could try? The fridge freezer is integrated into the kitchen so I haven't see the back of the appliance yet. Would you have any further ideas/advise on what to do?
Thank you, Sofia

Forgot to say that I can hear the fan running and there is no frost at all inside the freezer. Thanks, Sofia
UK Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 3 years ago
If the fan in the freezer is running, the door switch circuit is working. So, I suspect the issue lies with the main electronic control board. Are you comfortable with replacing that yourself?
