Hi I've got fridge/freezer Whirlpool ARC7470. The fridge stopped working despite the freezer being ok. If I want to make it work a have to turn the thermostat wheel to "off" (even the fridge light goes off) and turn it back. Than it works for a few hours and stops again. The thermostat isn't bimetal type it looks like rheostat Thanks for help

Hey hunnie,
well you have set the thermostat wheel to the minimum temperature due to that your fridge will work till some extent after that it will automatically off so set the thermostat wheel to the high level

Check to see if the sensor in the freezer compartment is encased in ice. If so, do a complete defrost and restart the unit. Another possibility is a bad thermostat and/or sensor.

I have a tall smeg fridge freezer. Freezer compartment working perfectly. Fridge not cooling despite all lights being on. I've switched it off then on, turned the thermostat down, then up again...


Hi Evelyn,
Has the freezer been defrosted lately? Perhaps a buildup of ice will not let the refrigerator cool sufficiently. Try this and let me know how it works out for you. If it does not have a self defrosting cycle on it, it may take some time, just do not use a sharp object in the freezer as this could puncture the freon lines and that would render the unit useless.

Whirlpool bottom freezer - freezer working but fridge not cold


Hi check to see if the unit has 2 compessors! If so then remove the plug from the mains and remove the thermostat housing in the fridge compartment and join the live and common wires together and switch on! It then should start to freeze down. Just get a new stat if this happens and replace it. Becarefull not to bent the log capilary wire as this has a liquid in it and any kink in the wire will mean you will be buy another one..
Good luck....
