How Do I Reset My Daewoo Fridge Freezer?

There is no clear way to reset your Daewoo fridge freezer. You will have to do a general hard reset by unplugging it and leaving it that way for about 45 minutes. Then, plug it back in again.

Also, resetting the water filter indicator tends to reset the unit in some cases. So, once you change the water filter and reset the indicator, it is possible the fridge freezer resets, too.

Additionally, resetting the compressor can reset the fridge freezer. Here is what to do:

1. Unplug the power cord of the fridge freezer from its power source.

2. Turn the controls of both the freezer and the fridge sections off or to 0, depending on how the controls are modeled. You will find them inside the fridge section.

3. Plug the power cord of the fridge freezer back into its power source.

4. Turn the controls of the freezer and fridge to the settings you desire. Then, give the unit at least 24 hours to adjust to the new temperature settings.


If there is a serious fault with your Daewoo fridge freezer, it is best to contact a service agent to help you find the cause. This is because sometimes, resetting the unit does not solve the problem. Accurate diagnosing will save you time and money.
