Hi all,

GS5VHAXWY00

A "6" with a circle around it started flashing above the temperature icon on the display apparently advising me of something. I could not find anything in the manual about this and would appreciate your help in advising me what the flashing "6" is trying to say to me?

Anybody heard of this before??

Yup,

Looks like its 6th Sense Temperature Management.

The 6th Sense feature assists with regulating the temperature inside the refrigerator. If a large quantity of warm food is placed in the refrigerator or warm air enters the refrigerator while the door is held open, 6th Sense activates to quickly restore the
temperature to the set point.

Then it shows the "6" icon with flashing bars around it.

Good find Jeff!

So slls you do see your model come up with the "6" icon and flash too?
