Question about Whirlpool Freezers

1 Answer

Hello awesome Fixya Experts! How do I disable the tones/alerts for my Whirlpool freezer (model WZF79R18DM00)?

My Whirlpool freezer (model WZF79R18DM00) often chimes when the compressor stops running (but seemingly not every time). It's loud, and at night is very annoying. The user manual refers only to an "over temperature alert" and a "door ajar alarm." There is no mention of a jingly tone at the end of a compressor cycle. I'd love to find out how to disable the chimes, or even where the speaker is so I can disconnect it if there's no way to stop the chimes from jingling at the end of the cooling cycle. Thank you so much for your help!

That is a compressor overload chime by the sounds of it. That is why the compressor stops. It is telling you needs attention to stop complete failure of the compressor. Try cleaning fluff out of the compressor coils with a vacuum cleaner.

    It is an educated guess, but I think I am right.

My hotpoint ff187e fridge/freezer keeps bleeping and flashing how can i fix this? it is only 18 months old.


Turn the second knob at the top to off (freezer knob) turn the fridge freezer off. Then turn it back on. That may sort it. Or you may need to totally defrost the machine as there could be some ice blocking some vents. May need to remove the back panel of the freezer for this (inside).

Chest Freezer not cooling


Please don't rate this solution, as anything but FixYa brings my rating down, but here's what you've got:
You have a refrigerant leak (commonly referred to a Freon, but these days usually R134A refrigerant). Some refrigerant has leaked, so you are still getting some cooling, but there is not enough refrigerant left to cool throughout the entire evaporator coils. This is NOT a repairable condition, as the coils are foamed in place and not accessable for leak repair. If this unit is under 5 years old (typical sealed system warranty) the manufacturer will most likely replace your freezer with a new one. If over 5 years, you are out of luck. Buy a replacement freezer.
