I believe that I am the first person to post this problem on the net, because I’ve done some extensive searching and turned up nothing.
So, as you may have guessed (or deduced), our new fridge was delivered last night. The delivery guys came and dropped it off. The fridge is fancy as can be: Stainless steel, bottom-mount freezer, energy efficient…. and a nifty feature called a “Door Alarm”.
Broken fridge alarm
The Door Alarm is a “feature” of the fridge that detects when the door is left open for a long period of time. After one minute with the door open, the alarm will beep. Every 30 seconds thereafter, it will continue to beep until the door is closed. However, in our case, the door alarm beeps constantly from the moment we plug it in, whether the door is open or not. Other than that, the fridge works great. It’s just too bad I can’t live with beeping noises going off every 30 seconds.
So FutureShop has scheduled an exchange, and they’re coming with a brand new fridge this Saturday. Hopefully this one will be able to keep quiet.
