Over Temperature Alarm

Possible Solutions

The Over Temperature feature is designed to let you know when either the refrigerator drawer temperature rises above 45°F (7°C) or the freezer drawer temperature rises above 6°F (-14°C) for 4 hours or longer. The audio alarm will shut off automatically when the temperature returns to normal. To let you know an Over Temperature condition occurred, the indicator light will continue to flash until the Reset Alarm touch pad is pressed.

If the over temperature condition is still present when an Over Temp reset is performed, the indicator light will continue to reactivate every 4 hours until refrigerator and freezer temperatures are below 45°F (7°C) and 15°F (-9°C), respectively. NOTE: These features will not appear on your control unless your refrigerator is over temperature and the alarm requires a reset.
