Whirlpool top freezer 18c.ft w/ icemaker: freezer works fine. fridge does not cool below 56 degrees. vacuumed dust from bottom, turned entire unit off and restarted but still not working, in back of


i think you have to check to make sure that
the fan inside the freezer is cycling on.
it will be concealed of course but you should
be able to hear it. i replaced one once with
the same symptoms and that fixed fridge
portion of a 2002 or 3 whirlpool. make sure
to listen closely and not mistake it for the
stronger fan motor which operates in
conjunction with and nearby the compressor.

Fridge won't cool but freezer working fine


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Freezer works but fridge not cooling


On this type ice box the cold air for the freshfood section comes from the freezer via a fan motor. For all of it to work propah the freezer must not be crammed full. The air has to circulate or the fresh food section will suffer. So if you have it overloaded where the air cannot get below then Houston we indeed have a problem. If that is fine we want to next check to see if the fan is blowing up in the freezer section. No fan no cold air below. If that is fine we want to make sure the evap coils ain't froze ova by a faulty defrost heater or termination thermostat. If the defrost is all propah AND the fan is fine AND the coils behind the ice box are clean for optimum performance, then look for a clogged defrost drain. Sometimes the drain cloggs and the water pools between freezer and fresh food section. A slab of ice forms effectively blocking any cold air from gettin to the bottom. To cure that yall unplug it and let it all thaw out then clean the defrost drain. If ice is blocking the defrost drain then run a wire down into it from the heater to keep the drain open and party on!

There is a puddle of water inside the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable bins.


How many items are in your freezer? I had this problem and there was too much in the freezer, not allowing the air to circulate properly in the freezer, thus resulting in freeze up in the top (freezer) and condensation below in refrigerator section. Additionally, I had the refrigerator setting too cold, which accelerated the problem. I had to thaw the drain hole in the freezer section, below the fan, to allow water to leave freezer during defrosting stage. Hope this helps?

Fridge not working properly on kenmore bottom freezer model 596.7


I have a similar problem, although I have no cooling in the fridge section. Had a repair man indicate that the electrical panal(pcb board) needs to be replaced. It is on order ($200). Sure hope that is the issue. To me, it appeared that the freezer fan(which cools the fridge) was not working. Whether that is the result of a faulty electrical panal is yet to be determined. Good luck!

No Cooling in the Fridge section, freezer is icing


Generally on these models they rely on cold air being pumped fr\om the freezer to the fridge and have a adjusting device to control the flow, you need to locate and check this is free and working properly. Another reason for freezer ice up is a shortage of gas in the unit, this is usually unfixable as the leak can rarely be found as it usually occurs within the cabinet case. Sorry to say it would then be a throw away.

Top half fridge not cold freezer department fine


I had the same problem; the top fridge compartment was warming up to 14C while the freezer compartment was starting to defrost (frozen stuff was starting to become soft. I took the rear wall off the freezer compartment and found it all iced up. I defrosted it with a blower heater then powered it back up. It all worked fine for a month when the same thing happened. I figured that the defrost cycle wasn't working. I located the defrost timer on the rear right-side of the fridge. I rotated it several times and found that the fridge was turning on and off. I rotated it until the fridge turned off. I waited 5 minutes then stuck my head into the freezer compartment and felt the rear wall at the bottom where he drain is; it felt warm so I guessed the defrost heater element was ok. I ordered a defrost timer and installed it. I haven't had a problem since.
