If your Beko fridge freezer is giving you trouble, one of the easiest things to do is reset it.
As there is no dedicated hard reset button on most Beko refrigerators, you need to follow a couple of simple steps to reset the appliance. Depending on which Beko fridge freezer model you own, the fridge and freezer controls may be placed differently.
In this guide, we will tell you how to reset a Beko fridge and freezer in the easiest way possible. Keep on reading to find out all about it.
Resetting Your Beko Fridge In Simple Steps
If your Beko fridge freezer is suddenly not producing enough cool air in the freezer compartments, there may be something wrong with the temperature settings. However, if you have already tried fixing it and still notice something wrong with the fridge, you may need to reset the appliance.
In all likelihood, there is something wrong with the refrigerator compressor. And since there is no dedicated reset button on the fridge, you need to do it manually. Here are the simple steps of resetting your Beko fridge.
Step 1: Begin by unplugging the refrigerator from its power source (remove the power cord from the wall socket to do this). You will find the controls for the fridge and freezer inside the fridge. Turn these off by switching them to the “Off” or “0” position.
Step 2: The next thing you need to do is plug the refrigerator back into its wall outlet. Remember to do this carefully, as the power source can be dangerous to handle if your hands are wet or if you are not careful.
Step 3: Now, set the fridge and freezer temperature controls to your desired setting. Typically, the thermostat settings range between 0 and 9, so decide on one according to how cold you want it to be.
Also, keep in mind that you need to allow the appliance at least 24 hours to adjust to the new temperature setting. In case you want the refrigerator to produce more cold air, adjust the thermostat more.
Step 4: Once you complete these steps, the compressor in the appliance will be able to run correctly after it has adjusted to the new temperature. The steps above can also be used to reset the freezer and fridge thermostat.
How To Perform A Hard Reset On Your Beko Fridge
Even without a dedicated reset button, you will be able to perform a hard reset on the refrigerator. This is commonly done if you can hear an unnatural humming sound or other noises coming from the refrigerator.
To perform this action, unplug the refrigerator from its wall socket and leave it for around 40 minutes. Remember to take out any perishable food from inside before doing this. After 40 minutes, plug it back to get it up and running optimally.
Most Beko refrigerators are equipped with advanced technologies that are designed to make your life easier. Unlike most other units, the Beko fridge can defrost itself without manual intervention.
That said, keep in mind that once you unplug the refrigerator, it may begin the defrosting process naturally. So, ensure that you lay out enough towels and dry cloths to soak up the melted ice once the defrosting process begins.
How Long Will It Take For The Refrigerator To Get Cool After Resetting It?
Typically, a fridge can take anywhere between 4 and 12 hours to produce enough gaseous refrigerant and get cool. However, in some cases, it may even take up to 24 hours, so you should ideally wait for a day for it to cool optimally.
The steps of resetting the unit are fairly simple and can be done easily at home even by people who don’t know much about electronic appliances.
That being said, if you notice any issues with the control panel, temperature, or odd sounds coming from the fridge, we recommend calling a professional technician for help.
