  1. When opening my refrigerator and Freezer door I am getting 2 bleeps and the thermometer instrument inside is flashing green and red. I believe it is a Fault Code 2: defrost issue. Can anyone please enlighten me how to diagnose this fault more specifically? The temperature is fine in both the fridge and freezer compartment. I cannot afford a service engineer to come out and would like to try and fix the fault myself.

  2. How do you determine error codes on a refrigerator through the beeps? there is no numerical display. I’m getting 17 beeps when I open the door. Thanks.
