How do I reduce temperature in refrigerator
Hi John, I'm not a refrigerator mechanic just someone who bought a dodgy product from Westinghouse and listed the complaint above when I didn't get satisfaction. Obviously you've played with the thermostat dials and now if your fridge is reasonably new contact the shop where you bought it. If it is outside the 1 year warranty tell them that ACCC (think that's the right body)state that a purchaser can expect the product to perform within the reasonable life of the product. I can't remember whether it's 5, 7, or 10 years for a fridge but you want the shop or Westinghouse to fix it now. All the best but Westinghouse are as slippery as a wet eel when it comes to excuses.
I have just bought a 540L WTB5404SA Westinghouse 1 week ago and now I have a flashing light on the interface. The flashing light is next to colder. I have tried to turn the fridge off to re-set the settings but that didn't work. The interface seems to have locked I can't press anything. I have to wait for over a week for a service due to not being able to be at home because of work. Any suggestions on why the light is flashing? Very disappointed considering the fridge is only 1 week old
I mam sorry that you have this problem, Lisa..but cannot help you, not being technically skilled...no consolation to you but I have not experienced anything similar,,,Hope everything goes well, regards,
Hi Lisa, So sorry to hear of this fault. I'm no tech and bear in mind it is still under warranty.
You say that you have turned the fridge off and on. Like all things now it's all electronic, so on the rh side are the settings.
tap the bottom one until it returns to the first light, then if the light is still flashing tap it again to see if it goes out.
This is setting the fridge colder as lights go upwards. If it still has a flashing light then try the on off again,but this time pull the plug out of the wall socket for say about half an hour and open the fridge door for a few seconds to drain what energy is left in the unit. Then put the plug back in and turn the fridge on, wait for a few mins then open the door and see if the light still flashes if not then it has reset itself. If it still flashes then it's ring the tech number and report it pronto.
REMEMBER this is only a guide and reminding you that the fridge is still under warranty.
Plus maybe go back to the store you bought from, I'm sure that they will only be to glad to help you.
Lastly if you could reply back here when all is fixed stating the remedy, that way others will be aware of what the trouble was.
Hope that this helps you with your problem.
