Question about Whirlpool ED5FHEXMQ Side by Side Refrigerator

Refrigerator does not get as cold as I would like

Canned and bottled drinks get cool but never cold. The same is true for other liquids such as milk and tea. Have the controls turned up to the maximum setting but the drinls aren't any colder than they were at 3 or 4.

First check the condensor fan and condensor for dust and make sure they are clean. If these areas are not clear the system will not operate correctly. You should be able to place your hand down low on the front of the frig and feel warm air coming out of the grate there. The presence of a flow of air meens that the condensor fan is working. Depending on how forceful the air flow is, would depend on how much dirt and dust the condensor has collected. The temp controls should be set to midway first. There is a dilicate balance for these settings. Over adjusting can cause problems. Then after several hours check the frig. If not cold enough. Adjust only the fresh food adjustment colder a little bit at a time. Repeating this untill your fresh food side is cold enough. If you over adjust the fresh food side too much then food in the fresh food side will begian to freez. If you set the freezer side too high you may be causing too much frost build up on the evaporator and lowering the air flow to the fresh food side and causing it to be warmer than it should be. This would be a check to see if you can balance the frig temp. If you can`t get it to balance and there are no restriction of air flow in either the evaporator or condensor, then we may have to look farther into problems with the compressor. You may need to check for some ice buildup around the air inlet in the fresh food side from the freezer side. Try this and let me know how it is.

Refrigerator side not cooling, freezer seems fine.


Clear the air vent fan passage, maybe it is obstructed with so many food stuff and bottle of drinks. Pullout unnecessary things in the refrigerator and check the door gasket. It must be tightly seal so that cold air is not going outside. Neatly re-arrange the things inside and clean also the shelf including air vent. Be sure temperature setting is correct.
It's been nice to help you.

Freezer works great but the refrigerator don't work. any ideal


Remove any things that will hindrance or block to the flow of cold air inside the refrigerator. Often the fan is block with food stuff or bottles, cans of drinks. Rearrange it correctly and also clean the fins of fans. Pullout unnecessary things and clean the inside. Put some allowances to the things inside. Overloading of food stuff really make it hard for the refrigerator to cold it. It takes longer for a overload food stuff to eliminate heat outside and cool then cold it.

We have a GDM-26 commerical coke machine. Only


If any of your drinks are freezing you need to adjust your temp setting. The suggested setting is 5. changing the temp setting basically tells the refrigerator to stop cooling when the temp hits a low degree, and to start cooling when it hits a high degree. This keeps your drinks not to hot, not too cold, but just right. If this doesn't work I would change the cold control altogether, it might've went bad. If you have a few minutes, locate the condensor fan (bottom) and make sure it is periodically turning on and off like it should.
