Westinghouse fridge freezer alarms keep going off

Westinghouse virtuoso fridge freezer alarms keep going off for no apparent reason. No doors are open but the temperature seems to be dropping in the freezer section. I can't find the manual. How do I fix?

The freezer alarm won't go off.


Possibly a problem with one of the components in the automatic defrost system in the freezer then.. this is the only reason why the alarm would keep sounding. Perhaps some of the moisture from the defrost has gotten in and damaged the electricals somehow. It might be worth it to store your freezer contents elsewhere and completely defrost the freezer and then heat the inside cabinet up with a hair dryer or something similar. This will dry out the cabinet and the electrical components. Once the freezer has warmed up let it stand for as long as possible with the doors open so that it reaches room temperature and then close the doors and switch back on. If this doesn't work you probably need a service engineer visit.

No alarm sounding but red light is flashing?


Warning light (red)
If the temperature warning light (4) lights up, it
indicates that the temperature within the freezer has
reached a level where the safe food storage is no
longer ensured. When the freezer is first switched on, the warning light will stay on until the temperature has dropped to
a safe level for the storage of frozen food.

Temperature acoustic alarm
This appliance incorporates an alarm which gives off
an audible signal whenever the warning light comes
on. This signal can be temporarily stopped by
depressing the push button for fast-freezing (6).
The fast-freezing push button can be released as
soon as the warning light is off.

Open door acoustic alarm
This appliance also incorporates an alarm which
sounds if the door is left open for more than 60
seconds. The signal will be stopped when the door is
closed again.

Freezer alarm


Hi Clair, thank you for allowing me to assist you.

When the refrigerator is beeping or buzzing, it may be a warning sign of a possible malfunction or an unsafe, interior temperature. To silence the buzzer, you can depress the ALARM OFF button. However, if you have already done this, try unplugging the unit or flipping the household circuit breaker for about ten minutes.

If the alarm continues, it could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the temperature control/board or wiring failure. I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis.

What shld settings be as food is freezing in fridge it has side by side knobs saying colder mid less cold it is a westinghouse fan forced frost free freestyle unit


The settings are "relative". Someone with this fridge in Montana may need to run the same fridge with different settings than someone in Texas to get the same temperatures.

Many manufacturers recommend that the fresh food compartment should be 34 degrees F, and the freezer -10 to 0 degrees F. To set this properly, place a thermometer in the freezer (that can display temperatures as low as the desired temperature). Adjust the thermometer for the correct freezer temperature before going on to the fridge. A fully stocked freezer could take 12 hours or more for temperatures to stabilize after making changes to the thermostat. Once the -10 to 0 degree temperature has been achieved, set the fresh food compartment temperature.

Place a thermometer (that can display below freezing) in a 6 (or so) oz flexible plastic cup of water and place on a shelf in the fridge. A glass of water could break if the temperature gets below 32 degrees if the water turns to ice. The water acts as a buffer to rapidly changing temperatures when the door is opened to read the thermometer. If the fridge is "full", allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize before making changes.

If the fridge and freezer are empty, changes may be seen in just a few hours or less. Otherwise, wait the 12 / 24 hours for the freezer / fridge compartments.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Can't get alarm to turn off while temperature stabilizes


My wife solved it for me :-) You turn the alarm off with a switch at the bottom. The alarm turns off, but the light stays red for another 4 hours. After that the red light goes off too, and you can turn the switch back on without the alarm going off, if the freezer is back to operating temp.

Hi ,
ngafm at your service,
If its cold and frozen it may be that the door switch that activates this light in the case that the door is ajar, is faulty.
Or it may be that the temperature is dropping to slowly for you to see it by eye!
The whole purpose of the, "door ajar" light is to protect you food from spoilage and to warn you before it gets to warm!
Door ajar or not!!!
My advice is to fix the problem now no matter if it is only the switch causing a false alarm.
Or the worst case scenario !

You need hands on service!
Bless You ,
ngafm,
please give me a good rating before you sign off.
Thank you.

Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 253-9280810


is it possible the door has not been closed at some point?
If so they can build up with ice in the evaporator which the defrost system cannot handle....Try a manual defrost.
Depending on where the unit is installed high ambient temperature can drop the internal temp enough to set the alarm off though they will still freeze sufficiently
