Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Electricity supply is there as the fridge light activates when door is opened but the fridge is not ooling aseven at th highest setting No 4 temperature is still normal.
What can the problem be.
On the refrigerator door jamb, locate a small push-button switch. This component operates the light inside the refrigerator. If the switch is malfunctioning, the light in the unit may stay on, and the heat from the lightbulb can cause cooling trouble in the box.
Step 1: Check the bulb to see if it is burned out. If not, depress the push button on the door switch.
Step 2: If the light stays on, clean the switch with a cloth. Then remove the switch from the jamb. Remove retaining screws hidden by a plastic trim piece, pry the switch out of the jamb with a screwdriver, or pry off the jamb trim to expose the switch. Then test the switch with a VOM set to the RX1 scale (instructions for using the VOM are given on page 19).
Step 3: Clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal of the switch and press the push button. The meter should read zero. If the needle on the scale moves above zero, replace the switch with a new one of the same type.
Step 4: Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected.
