Neff Refrigerator Error Codes and Messages – Quick Fix
The following are Neff refrigerator error codes and messages that are likely to pop up, and what to do about them:
1. E8, E33 or E48
You will see any of these error codes if there is ice jammed in the crusher or in the ice cube container’s outlet.
Fix this by opening the freezer door and removing the ice there. Use a stick if you have to but be careful so you don’t damage the unit.
Turn the refrigerator off for about 1 minute by unplugging it. Then, turn it back on again by plugging it back in. If any of the error codes still show, call Neff customer service center.
2. No Display
If there is no display on the panel of the refrigerator, check to see that the power cord is working fine and is properly plugged in. if it is yet the display is blank, check the circuit breaker that controls that part of the house. Be sure that there is an adequate power supply to the house.
3. Wrong Internal Temperature
Depending on which side of the controls the temperature is tilting, you can either switch off the refrigerator or adjust the controls. If the internal temperature is too high and is not reflecting the set temperature, adjust it a bit and give the unit time to catch up.
But if it is too low, turn the refrigerator off for about 5 minutes and turn it back on. This should reset the controls. Then, you can allow the refrigerator to reach the set temperature, usually 24 hours, at least.
However, if doing these doesn’t work, call a qualified technician to accurately diagnose the cause of the problem and fix it.
4. Freezer Section Temperature Display Flashing with Warning Sounds
When this happens, know that the temperature in the freezer is too high. The freezer has gotten too warm and the food in it is at risk of perishing.
Fix this by pressing the alarm/lock pad. Doing this will turn off the warning sound and the flashing on the freezer temperature display.
Then, check the door of the freezer to be sure it closes properly. Close it tightly if it is even slightly open. Check the air vents to see if there is anything covering them. Rearrange the items in the freezer to make more room for air circulation. Also, check the gasket or seal for signs of leakage or wear. Replace it if there is any.
If the temperature set for the freezer section is incorrect, adjust it. The recommended setting is 00F or -180C.
5. No Internal Lights or No Refrigeration
No internal lights and no refrigeration means that the refrigerator has no supply of power. Check to see if the power cord is damaged or burnt. If it is not, check the dedicated wall socket to see if it is still working.
After checking and they are in working order, then check the circuit breaker to be sure it is switched on. Additionally, plug in the power cord fully and properly.
6. Internal Light Not Working
If you find that the internal light of the refrigerator is not working, it could be that the light is defective. It could also be that the refrigerator or freezer light switch is stuck. It is possible you will have to replace either the light or the switch for the light.
7. Unit Switching On Too Often and Too Long
When you find that the refrigerating unit has started switching on too often and runs longer than before, there are a number of reasons for this.
One is that items in the refrigerator are covering the air vents. Fix this by removing anything covering the vents if there is any.
Two is that the door of the refrigerator is opened too often. Fix this by limiting the number of times the door is opened every day.
Three is that too much fresh food items have been stored at the same time in the refrigerator. Fix this by reducing the amount of food in the refrigerator per time.
8. No Ice Dispensed
If the refrigerator is not dispensing ice even when it has been operating for a long time, check to see if the ice maker is disconnected. If it is not, then check to see if the water supply has been interrupted or if the pressure of the water is low.
Also, the cause could be that the tap is turned off. Turn it back on if it is. And the ice and water dispenser could be switched off. But in this case, ‘IWD’ would be displayed on the panel.
Another cause could be that the freezer temperature is high so it can’t make ice. Simply adjust the temperature to a colder point if it is too high.
9. Refrigerator or Freezer Temperature Too Cold
Adjust the temperature setting for either the refrigerator, the freezer or both to a higher setting if they are too cold. And give the unit time to adjust to the new settings.
10. Ice Cubes in Container Not Dispensed
Sometimes, ice will form and fall into the ice cube container. But they will not be dispensed. The possible reason for this is that all the ice are stuck together because they are frozen together. So, take out the container and empty it.
11. Deformed Ice or Not Enough Ice
When you find that the dispensed ice is deformed or there isn’t just enough ice, it could be that the pressure of the water supply is low. In this case, increase the pressure. It could also be that too much ice being taken and the ice maker can’t keep up. In this case, give the ice maker adequate time to make ice.
Another cause could be that the refrigerator or the ice maker just came on. In this case, give the unit time to pick up. Additionally, the cause could be that the water filter needs to be changed. In this case, replace the water filter as soon as possible.
12. Watery Ice Cubes
Watery ice cubes could be caused by the temperature of the freezer being too warm. The temperature issue could be as a result of the door of the freezer not being shut tight or power failure.
Empty and dry the ice cube maker and put it back. Make sure that there is an adequate power supply to the refrigerator and that the door is closed tightly. Then, give it time to cool and make ice again.
13. Jammed Ice Crusher or Ice Cube Container
If there is ice jammed in the ice crusher or in the ice cube container outlet, take the ice cube container out and with your hand, turn the screw conveyor. This will dislodge the ice. Then, with a soft wooden stick, remove the chunks of ice.
14. Water Dispenser Not Working
Check to see if the supply of water to the refrigerator is steady and how the pressure of the water is. These are the possible reasons for this problem.
If doing these don’t solve the problem, call a plumber or a refrigerator technician to ascertain the real cause and fix it.
