Door Alarms

  • If the door is left open the alarm will beep after 60 seconds.
  • If the door remains open, subsequent beeps will sound every 30 seconds for 5 minutes.
  • A continuous alarm will sound if the door has been left open for 5 minutes or longer.
  • The alarm will stop when the door is closed.


Fault Alarms

  • If the electronic controller detects a fault from which it is unable to recover, an alarm will sound when the door is opened.
  • When the door is opened and a fault has occurred, a specific number of beeps will sound.
  • If a fault occurs, call your Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician immediately; the number of beeps will help the service person find and remedy the cause of failure.
