Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
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
