    Our fridge has started beeping every few minutes. The door is shut and gas is getting through. We've checked the switch and the light is going off. We've turned it off for 10mins and tried the reset button but it's still beeping.

    It's under guarantee but we're in Cornwall and haven't got the paperwork with us.

    Any suggestions gladly received.

    Are you on level ground and the fridge no more than a few degrees off level - that will cause the problem.
    Can you hear the fridge ignite when switched on - you can usually hear it by listening near the outside grill.
    Try the fridge on battery if you haven't got hook up - if it works on battery then check you aren't low on gas.
    Remove the lower grill and using a soft bristle brush wipe over any accessible parts behind the grill.
    I am not a gas engineer or expert!

    Check the isolation tap for the fridge on the manifold is fully open to allow gas through without hindrance.

    If it starts again have a look at the door switch, mine did keep beeping traced it to the switch. I took the housing off the switch and re-bent the spring strip that operates the switch.

    hi there, we have the same problem. i traced it down to condensation in the illuminated door switch box. disconnected it dried it and end ofr problem.
    Door switch box does seem to condensate up, and i believe it fools the processor in this box into creating a false "youve left the door open " scenario

    Now in the process of rendering this switch box moisture proof with the careful application of neutral cure silicone
