condition that you do not understand, you can usually avoid a call to your service
representative by referring to this section for an answer. Beginning with the following
table, this information includes concerns, potential causes, and common solutions.

Door(s) will not
close.
Drawers are
difficult to move.
Refrigerator Operations
Concern

not run.
Refrigerator runs
too much or too
long.

rocks on the floor when

• Food is touching shelf on
top of drawer.
• Drawer is overloaded.
Potential Cause
• Cooling system is turned
Off.

cycle.
• Plug at wall outlet is
disconnected.
• House fuse is blown or a
tripped circuit breaker.
• Power outage.
• Electronic control system
keeps the refrigerator at a
constant temperature.
• Room or outside weather
is hot.
• Refrigerator has recently
been disconnected for a
period of time.
• Doors are opened too
frequently or too long.
• Refrigerator/freezer door
may be slightly open.
• Freezer control is set too
cold.
• Fresh food/freezer gasket
is dirty, worn, cracked, or
poorly fitted.
• This model is provided with
a high-efficiency, variable-
speed compressor.
• Electronic control
system has detected a
performance problem.
Common Solution
• Ensure floor is level and solid,
and can adequately support the
refrigerator. Contact a carpenter to
correct a sagging or sloping floor.
• Check for ice or food items
blocking drawer.
• Keep less food in drawer.
• Remove or redistribute food.
Common Solution
• Turn cooling system On. See
Controls Section for location of
cooling system On/Off button.
• This is normal for a fully automatic defrost
refrigerator. The defrost cycle occurs
periodically, lasting about 30 minutes.
• Ensure plug is tightly pushed into
outlet.
• Check/replace fuse with a 15 amp
time-delay fuse. Reset circuit breaker.
• Check house lights. Call local
Electric Company.
• This is normal. Refrigerator goes
on and off to keep temperature
constant.
• It's normal for the refrigerator to
work longer under these conditions.
• It takes 8-12 hours for the
refrigerator to cool down
completely.
• Warm air entering the refrigerator
causes it to run more. Open doors
less often.
• Ensure refrigerator is level. Keep food
and containers from blocking door.
• Set freezer control to warmer setting until
refrigerator temperature is satisfactory.
Allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize.
• Clean or change gasket. Leaks in door
seal will cause refrigerator to run longer in
order to maintain desired temperatures.
• It is normal for the compressor to
run for long periods of time.
• Call your Electrolux service representative,
who can interpret any messages or number
codes flashing on the digital displays.
