the first one sounds like it is slowly leaking freon.

  •  the second Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

SOURCE: Side by Side Whirlpool Refrigerator: Refrigerator is freezing food

Hi, riverbyfarm
You did try what i would of recommended first!
The resetting of the system by, turning off the controls of the freezer and the fridge first and then unplugging it or if you can't reach the plug, to throw the breaker off for 5 minutes!
That is a possibility in the order that I described!!!!!

Second I ask, is the freezer packed full to the hilt with packages?
In some refrigerators if the frozen food covers the air vents in the freezer cause they are plied sky high and deep in the freezer it can cause a problem.
The freezer and fridge share the air and have to have the vents or passages free so to allow sharing of the cold air!
Let me know if the measures as I prescribed have an affect.

Waiting for your reply!

This is most likely caused because the defrost condensate drain below the evaporator is frozen over or blocked further down the drain line. You will need to remove the rear cover unplug the refrigerator and defrost the drain pan with a hair dryer until you ar able to pour water with a mixture of clorox and allow to flow to the pan below your refrigerator.

Whirlpool refrigerator ER2CHMXPL00 & leak


If you have water leaking into the fresh food section of the refrigerator, then the condensate drain if either frozen at the evaporator OR clogged at the drain pan or both. There are air vents in the top of the fresh food section to allow cold air down from the evaporator compartment and return air up from the fresh food section, and these holes cannot be covered or closed off. Check the drain trough under the evaporator for ice build up. Also check that there is nothing stopping the water flow down at the drain pan. If there is no water in the pan under the refrigerator down by the compressor, you have a restriction that needs to be cleared.

Whirlpool ER2CHMXPL00 freezer is frosting up


Lets start by going inside your fresh food compartment and see if you can find a round hole most times covered by a plastic plug to hide opening. Remove plug and place a flathead screwdriver in opening and slowly turn the defrost timer clockwiseuntil you hear compressor and fans stop. This is called forcing manual defrost. After a few moments you should hear some sizzle or crackle noise coming from freezer compartment. That will be the defrost heater warming up the unmelted frost. Click Here=> ER2CHMXPL00 Liner Parts See item location 4? That is the defrost timer While the freezer has been set manually in defrost the defrost timer should be trying to come out of defrost itself after about 25 minutes. If it does not come out of defrost simply turn clockwise until the compressor restarts. If you need to do this replace the defrost timer.

If doing the above does not help you will need to manually defrost the freezer with a hair drier. Unplug refrigerator and remove the rear panel in back of your freezer. This is where you will see the defrost heater. Click Here=> ER2CHMXPL00 Unit Parts

On that same page instructions are in a video on how to test the defrost heater. At top of this solutionI mentione the Liner Parts item number 25 is the=> 4387503 Defrost Thermostat
Most likely the defrost timer is the part that is needing replaced. If not then the other two parts listed here are very possible reasons for the defrost failure.

This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning ice maker, it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

Whirlpool runs, but freezer not freezing and frig not freezing


If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant.  See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot.  If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged.  Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

Ice cream and bread don't freeze, food in frig DOES freeze


Not fixed but I do not want to spend MORE money to find out what's wrong with this AMANA piece of ****. Apparently, from research on the net, the compressor or motor is not strong enough in this unit to actually do the job...but if anyone has any suggestions, I'm happy to hear them...

Food freezing in refrigerator and water dripping


The problem with the water is that the drain tube is plugged. The easiest way to fix this and to save money is to unplugg the refrigerator and leave the doors open all day. This will thaw out the drain tube without a service technician coming out. That will fix that problem. With it freezing the food on the where its not supposed, This may be a bad cold control. But try unplugging the unit for a day with the doors open and this may fix both problems. (i know it will fix the water issue)
