Hi. I have a Neff k5930D1GB that this week suddenly started sounding an alarm. The alarm keeps going at random intervals and various length of time. Appliance self test shows no errors. Doors are shut as it's the same sound as if a door was left open. Food is still cold/frozen so temperatures all look good.

Hi. The 1 hour reset did not work.Now the water dispenser is not working correctly as it keeps cutting out and then stopping completely.

Thanks for trying that test for me;-)

This is a bad water inlet solenoid.

Its an easy to replace component.

But let me ask, how is the maker working?

Thank you

The water maker starts dispensing water and then keeps stopping. Takes ages to dispense a glass of water. Half way through it will stop all together and the panel lights go off.Is there a way to stop the alarm until the part can be replaced.

Hi yes, I will be with you in a few minutes....

Thank you for your patience.

MichaelAny update?regards

Than you for that information.

The first thing is you have a weak or clogged water dispenser solenoid.

That part is in the front of the fridge. It is inside the dispenser on this one.

I will help you replace that part, if you are handy just a little, you should have no problem doing this with my assistance;-)

Once tyou have the part drop me a line and I will assist.

The best place to get a new door water solenoid is:

It is best to call them for this order because there are so many different ones you could end up with the wrong one, so let them pick that for you.

Also once you call, they will ship it the same day you call;-)

MichaelI'm going to get someone out to look at it. The situation is getting worse as the alarm sounds very 2mins now and the freezer has started to defrost. Water dispenser is not working anymore and the ice tray is also not working.I think it's best to get the whole fridge looked at.Thanks for your help though.

MichaelJust to give you an update. NEFF engineer has identified the fault as door sensor on freezer.It keeps shorting meaning the freezer fan stops. This in turn is causing the alarm and water to not function correctly. Ice not being made as freezer not getting cold enough.

Hi yep, that would do it as well.

If the fan wont run yes it can not circulate the air as well.
