Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a 6 year old American style fridge freezer. In recent times the freezer alarm has been permanently flashing and sounding periodically. The freezer does not appear as cold as it once was and it's fair to say the fridge is similar although, the digital read out suggests it holding it's temperature. I am close to replacing it but wondered if anyone out there has any ideas on possible diagnosis,potential cost of repair, life span etc. many thanks Russ

Hi thanks for the question. first i would clean all the coils at the back. remove panel and clean . then check to see if the fan in freezer works. then see if any Frost has built up on back wall of freezer. if frost on wall, you have a defrost problem. thanks the appliance doc

What temperature should you set a American style refrigerator


Turn OFF your fridge/freezer. Running the unit for an extended period of time will burn out the motor. You will need to get a technition in to check the thermostat operation.

Hi I have an old american style 4 door zanussi fridge freezer recently the freezer defrosted itself and the red warning light is now flashing since. The fridge above is still working fine. Sorry don&#


As far as I can tell the fridge and freezer are on two separate compressers so if one gos down the opposite will still work. As for the red light I can only think if the unit is not working that the defrost is stuck open, or the compresser relay I stuck open, or the compresser is shor, or t-stat is stuck open od there may be a drain pan sensor and it is full and not evaporating. Sorry that's all I got
