Sometimes your refrigerator tells you exactly what's wrong—as long as you can crack the code. Below are common error code tables for the most popular brands, along with an explanation of what the code means, possible repair parts you might need and DIY advice. Visit Sears PartsDirect’s repair help section for more DIY advice for refrigerators, other major appliances, lawn and garden equipment, garage door openers, vacuum cleaners and more. To find the owner’s manual or a complete list of replacement parts for your refrigerator, search for your model number.
If the temperature in your refrigerator doesn't match the temperature you set, the problem could be the temperature control board—a service technician can give you a definite diagnosis. If the board is at fault, follow these steps to replace it yourself.
