Question about Whirlpool ER6AHKXPQ Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a fairly older model Roper....lately it has been freezing up, then rapidly defrosting in the freezer. Also the Refridgerator section stays like warm....I have been told that the defrost timer is the likely cause. What is your opinion?

    Turns Out the defrost terminator was exactly what it was. A friend came over and told me right away what it was. But thanks for the advice....So far you ( an Apprentice) told me correctly on the first try!

It may be the timer and it also may be the defrost terminator they are both common repairs. the terminator is in the freezer section behind the back panel. It is a small 1"round part with 2 or 3 wires going to it and it clips on the evaporator tubing at the top. both are not much money to replace and it would be worth replacing both parts for future problems.

More than likely, you have a failed component in the defrost system. Call a good, reputable, service company. You do not need to replace this refrigerator.

Cold air only in freezer. no cold air in refridgerator section. the freezer is cold but not freezing.


This sounds like a classic case of defrost system failure, the coil in the freezer is iced up - freezer will run at 32 fridge around 55. turn off unit, get heat gun, manually defrost unit(be careful!). either your timer or defrost heater assembly has failed, if you de ice coil unit will work until you can get a service person to diagnose bad part and replace

Freezer not working but refridgerator section ok. this is a sub zero unit


It is a defrost problem since the ice that freezes on the freezer coils
is not being melted by the defrost system.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
 Its best handled by a Technician butyou could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store  and asking for the parts.  They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref  The parts store will have info  Also check evaporator fan in freezer If this was helpful please rate me

Both top sections fridge/freezer of my side by side are not cold


Sounds like a defrost problem. Remove food from freezer section, take the back wall out after removing shelves, and use a hair blower to melt off the ice and frost. Most likely you need to replace the defrost heater.
