Q:

Refregerator not cooling,50* on #5.

A:

Make sure that the air vent coming from the freezer to the refrigerator is not blocked. Check the inside back wall of that freezer compartment for excessive frost or ice. If you see ice on that back wall of the freezer, you could have an automatic defrost system problem. You can follow the procedure shown below to force a defrost in the refrigerator. Forcing this defrost may clear the evaporator so that the refrigerator resumes cooling. If it does, then you may have had an isolated incident where too much frost built up on the evaporator and caused the cooling problem. If the refrigerator cools properly for a while and then goes back up to 50 degrees, you will need to diagnose and repair the defrost system to fix this problem.

Here is a link for a video that shows information and troubleshooting for a refrigerator cooling problem: Refrigerator Not Cooling Repair . That information will help you understand the defrost system and airflow through the cabinet. This video may help you understand what is causing the cooling problem in your refrigerator. If you need more help with this cooling issue, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Q:

What Does F Followed By The # 50 Flashing 2/3 Times On The Screen Mean???

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with your washer.

The F-51 and F-50 error code on this washer indicates that the machine control board in the console detects a motor RPS (Rotor Position Sensor -- tachometer) failure or stalled motor. This can be caused by a number of different problems. You could have a bad RPS sensor, a failed motor, a wire harness connection problem or an item stuck between the spin basket and the outer tub that is interfering with spin basket rotation. A water filling problem could also cause this code to be displayed since the basket would have excessive friction if water is not entering the machine properly. With the washer off, spin the basket to see if it rotates freely. If you detect resistance or suspect that an item is stuck between the basket and the outer tub, you will likely need to remove the basket and check this area. The procedure for removing the basket is shown in the first image below. Remove the basket and check for foreign objects or debris.

If the basket spins freely, make sure that your water supply cut-off valves are fully open. Shut off the water supply and remove the hoses from the connections on the back of the washer. Place the ends of the hoses in a bucket and briefly turn on the water supply to check the flow and water pressure coming from the end of the hoses. Check the inlet water valve screens for deposits or debris that could interfere with the water fill. The motor will begin to spin the basket before the washer completes the filling function. If the filling is slow, it could cause the F-51 code.

If the water supply is okay, you could have a wire harness connection problem, failed RPS sensor or a number of other failures. If you are technically advanced and have a volt/ohm meter, you can use the technical information provided in the third image to try and diagnose your likely failure. NOTE: This information is intended for technicians. Follow electrical safety guidelines when using this information. Unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. Internal metal edges in the washer can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended.

I recommend that you unplug the washer and access the control board first. Check the wire harness connections on the P10 and P5 plugs first. Measure the resistance through the motor and the RPS sensor as shown below. This may point you in the direction of your failure. If you need more help, submit additional details.

This is often a difficult failure to diagnose and repair in an Oasis washer. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
