Door Alarm Light - Refrigerator

Possible Solutions

Was the door left open?

The Door Ajar Alarm feature sounds an alarm when the refrigerator door(s) or freezer drawer is left open for 2-5 minutes, depending on the model, and cooling is turned on. The alarm will repeat every 2 minutes. Close all doors to turn off and reset the alarm. 

NOTE: To mute the audible alarm while keeping the doors open, such as while cleaning the inside of the refrigerator, touch any button on the control panel. The alarm sound will be temporarily turned off, but the Door Ajar icon will still be displayed on the dispenser control panel.

Are the doors completely closed? 

Ensure the doors are closing correctly.  If the doors are not making contact with the door switch the door ajar symbol will appear on the display.  Check to make sure bins, shelves or food packages are not preventing the door(s) from closing correctly. 

Is the refrigerator level?

Check to make sure the refrigerator is leveled front to back and side to side to ensure the door switch is making proper contact. Check to make sure the floor under the refrigerator is also level. If the floor is not level shims may need to be used.
