That is a freezer fan code, but based on the flash by the bulb it sure sounds like something was damaged on the control board. You likely will need to replace the light and the control board to fix that issue. They had issues with the lighting circuit failing and that will damage the board from a short in the light circuit. I think the error code is just due to the board being damaged on the unit.
All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me!.....tips are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!
Yes the freezer is likely not working and will get warm in a few hours.
Yes you would need to change out that board, since you are in the UK you can see if anyone local can get it or try this place
Do you have the complete model number off the unit?
Is the Freezer fan working and running?
Ok try to unplug the unit for a full minute and plug it back in and if it still comes up replace the control where the temps are displayed that is the main control board on that unit.
It will I had to change one last week on that similar issue they all seem to fail on that unit.
You would have to get to the board and pull the speaker off it, I had to do that on one as well.
It is right where you press the buttons for the temps in the refrigerator section. That is the board.
Yes it is the same one
You can pull the unit out and check there to see if you can locate it your unit may have a small board back there for the compressor.
Remove the back panel to expose the compressor and see if it is coming from there, there really is not many other places it can come from.
I have been working on this with you since 5am...let me see if another expert can assist
OK my name is ***** ***** in the UK. I have been looking at the diagrams which whilst helpful do not tell me what I need to know. Did you take of the water dispenser panel to have a look at the PCBs?
The drawings only show me the electronics for the facia - where do you think the noise is coming from?
