Whirlpool upright freezer WZF57R16FW00 randomly playing “power-on”tone
The freezer is randomly playing the tone that you would hear upon plugging in the power cord. This started several months ago, and only happened every several days.. maybe once/week. Over time it has progressively gotten worse. At first it was so seldom and random that it took a month or two to figure out it was the actually the freezer making the sound. Now it’s happening several times a day. A couple months ago I put a remote temperature monitor inside the freezer that records high and low temperatures over time. I’ve never seen it get warmer than 15°F, or colder than -10°. It’s 5° as I type this. Thinking there might possibly be a bad connection in the power outlet, I used an extension cord to plug the unit into an outlet in a different room… no change.. still getting the tone several times/day.
Anybody know what the problem is?
