Case: Front and side of refrigerator feels warm or hot.

Explanation: Pipes (refrigerant vessel) are placed beneath the surface to prevent moisture forming on it.

Case: Doors do not open easily

Explanation: When you close the door and then open again immediately, the door is not easy to open. Warm air rushes into the inside to create the pressure difference. In this case wait for a minute, then it will open easily.

Case: It sounds like water is flowing from the refrigerator.


  • When the compressor starts to run or stops, refrigerant which makes the inside cold flowing in the pipes can make such a sound.
  • Defrosted water can also make such a sound. (This refrigerator adopts an automatic defrosting system.)

Case: Cracking or clicking sounds

Explanation: Inside parts shrink and/or expand due to temperature change. When the inside gets cold or when the door is open, such sounds can be made.

Case: Humming or buzzing sounds.

Explanation: Compressor or fans for cold air circulation can make such working sound. (If the refrigerator is not level, the sound can be louder.)

Case: Dew or frost on the wall and/or food container surface in the freezer and refrigerator compartment.

Explanation: Frost and/or dew can be made in the following cases;

  • High temperature and/or high humidity around the refrigerator.
  • When doors are open too long.
  • Foods with much moisture are stored uncovered or unwrapped.

Case: Dew on the cabinet surface.

Explanation: If it is highly humid around the refrigerator, moisture in the air sticks to the surface to form dew.

Is there a reset button on a Daewoo fridge freezer?

Instructions Press the "Filter Reset" button on the lower left of the control console and hold it until the filter light turns green, if your Daewoo has a "Filter Reset" button Find the “Ice Maker Lock” button on the lower right-side corner of the control panel, if your model does not have the "Filter Reset" button.
