Whirlpool cooling fan will not turn off ovens


There is a thermostat usually on the top or back of the oven which controls the cooling fan. When it cools down, the fan is supposed to turn off. I would say this thermostat has failed. Locate the thermostat and if its cool, the thermostat should be open circuit. If not, you will need a new one. Most spare parts centres should carry these. A generic or common oven cooling fan thermos will suffice if you cant get the genuine one. make sure the oven is off at the wall or the fuse box before you go into it.

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator freezer is warm and fridge section warm tap on thermostat and everything starts up and gets cold


What is the model number of your refrigerator? In most cases replacing a mechanical thermostat that begins doing this is the answer to solving this problem. Problem is I don't know what the type of thermostat yours has because you did not post the model number. Thanks, Sea Breeze

WHIRLPOOL FRIDGE FREEZER MODEL ART 201. REPLACING


Hello,
It is often the case that if the thermostat is not working, the best route to take is to replace it rather than try to fix it, unless you have the necessary knowledge to do so. Most of the time, these are not as expensive as you would think and can be easily installed into the refrigerator. Here are some steps to follow to find out what the best route for you to take is in repairing or replacing your thermostat.

Good luck.....
Locate the thermostat and get all necessary model numbers, serial numbers and model codes. This information should be available for the refrigerator itself as well. Use this information to find and purchase the correct thermostat for your refrigerator.
Next, remove all power from the unit. Unplug the unit completely and make sure that it is not running before moving forward. Then, remove the old thermostat by cutting through the wiring.
To install the new thermostat, trim the lead wires to the right length. They are generally too long to start with. Terminate back into the circuit. The device will act as if it is a switch. This means that the direction or the coloring of the wires is not important. So long as you can cut off the current moving through them to the main defrost element you have no problem.
Make sure to properly dress the wires to insure that no part of them comes into contact with the defrost elements as this can cause them to melt.
Replacing a thermostat doesn’t have to be a lot of work, when you know what the problem is and can get easy access to the parts you need. Determine if your thermostat is bad by running through those tests first. When you do replace it, make sure to test to make sure it is working properly by allowing the unit to cool for several hours and testing the temperature within it.

How do you replace the heat element on a whirlpool LER8648 dryer?


Before replacing the heating element, check first the continuity of the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat located on the heater box, the resistance of the heating element, and the continuity cycling thermostat located on the blower housing. Replace the heating element only when it reads open. Replace both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat should any one of them is found open. The cycling thermostat must have continuity between its thicker terminals; otherwise, replace it.

All of the above components are accessible through the rear of the dryer. Remove the rear panel by removing the screws securing i to the dryer cabinet. Replace the heating element by removing the screws attaching its housing to the heater box then securing the new heating element housing in place.

I just bought second hand Whirlpool fridge freezer, ARG/918/G/WP (8534918010180) - is there a user guide/manual available? I don't know how to set it, defrost, it or anything.


I assume that you are in the UK (as indicated by your product number) so call Whirlpool Service on 0844 815 8989 and give them the mnodel no and the 12 digit number that begins with 85 and they will assist you.

If you are not in the UK then go to

http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/global_sites.jsp

and select your region / country and locate the contact suppoprt tab and contact them with the same details.
