Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

Freezer keeps running

My whirlpool side by side refer/freezer does not stop running on the freezer side. It keeps the items frozen and is plenty cold but it does not shut off. There is frost build-up on the ice maker chute where the ice exits the bin and enters the chute. There is a slight gap on the bottom of flapper door but really, really small. Can this be the reason why the freezer runs all the time and the frost build up?

Yes,you need to pull the front panel on the ice maker off to get to the solinoid that opens and closes the flap,with the flap vranked open you are letting cold air out and warm air in and that makes frost,if you don't want to try and fix it your self put a cloth towel in the chute to block the air lose and call an honest local appliance repair person-mike

All of a sudden, my refrigerator doesn't keep anything cold like it used to but the freezer still works. We have cleaned underneath but it still doesn't keep anything cold. What could be the problem?


Look for signs of frost on the back side. You probably have a defrost problem of it could be a drain problem.
Your ice box cold air originates in the freezer. A fan pushes down the cold air into the fresh food section. If their are too many items in the freezer the air can be blocked to the fresh food section. If the drain stops up sometimes a puddle forms a slab of ice between the freezer and the bottom. I ave an apartment maintenence man's guide to these ice box's for you HERE. It feature 4 differnt styles of whirlpool ice box's in your size.

Ice build up on coil inside freezer


it can be two things the refrgerator probably has a small refrigerant leak therefore it ices up, or the defrosting heater on the begining of the coil is faulty.

Fridge part not working on Whirlpool Arc 7050 Fridge Freezer


If this is correct:

1. No ice build up on back of freezer wall.
2. Fan in freezer is working.
3. Items in freezer are frozen, ice cream is a good test.

Then:
Why is the cold air in the freezer not getting over to the Ref. side?

1. There is a channel (tunnel) from the freezer to the Ref, side and there is a door which regulates how much cold air from the freezer goes through to the Ref. side.

2. The control panel may have it labeled as "Freezer" setting, from cold to coldest. The coldest setting means the door is almost closed and will keep most of the cold air in the freezer.

3. Since your control panel is not working then this door must be almost closed keeping all or most of the cold air in the freezer.

Any service tech should be able to check the control panel and find the problem.

FREEZER IS COLD BUT NOT FREEZING WELL,FRIDGE IS NOT AS COLD AS IT SHOULD BE


Your freezer fan has stopped working or jammed. It's also possible that your defrost timer has stopped working and that the airways in the freezer are clogged with ice and the air can't circulate to the fridge. One of the two. Good Luck!!
