Common Issues with Fisher & Paykel Fridges
Like all refrigerator brands, Fisher & Paykel has its unique characteristics. One common issue across all Fisher & Paykel models is the heating element, which tends to fail within 5 to 7 years. The primary symptom is the refrigerator tripping the main switchboard safety switch or RCD. Another indicator is when the refrigerator stops cooling properly while the freezer remains operational. Inside the refrigerator, the LED display may flash green and red, accompanied by continuous beeping when you open the refrigerator door.
The second most common issue our Fisher & Paykel repair agents encounter involves the two fans—one in the refrigerator and another in the freezer. The freezer fan, in particular, is more prone to failure due to temperature-related stress on the wiring over time. Signs of this issue include continuous beeping upon opening the fridge door and a display that flashes continuously.
French Door Models:
While French door models share some common issues, they have unique challenges. One prevalent problem is the door flap heater located on the left door. Continuous use of the door can lead to wear and tear on the wiring at the hinge, resulting in a f20 error on the door display and immediate beeping when opening the fridge door. If the wires on the left top hinge are intact, check the door flap heater's resistance using a multimeter. Typically, it should measure around 15 ohms. If an open circuit is detected, replace the faulty door flap heater. If the heater measures 15 ohms and the wiring checks out, a faulty main board may be the cause and should be replaced for proper operation.
Water and Ice Dispenser:
French door Fisher & Paykel models with water and ice dispensers may experience an f20 error code related to the ice maker sensor, located beneath the ice maker in the freezer compartment. The sensor wires often break due to the constant movement of the ice tray during ice cube dumping. In most cases, the sensor wiring can be soldered back together if not severed too close to the sensor itself.
