My frost free fridge freezer is working but flashing de on the front. I'd like to know what it means


Error codes are brand (and often model) specific. "de" likely indicates something in the defrost process, especially on G.E. Check for ice build-up in the freezer cooling coil. The control board would be suspect, but must be checked to confirm the precise fault.

Whirlpool 6ED2FHKXRL side-by-side fridge/freezer not cooling properly


Is there a lot of ice in the bottom of the freezer, at the back? If so, you will need to get the ice out as it is probably blocking the door passage from the freezer to the fridge.

Side by side thermostat set low seems like it runs a lot more than it use to freezer and fridge are boyh cold


Check your coils underneath the fridge to be sure they are clean.
Check your condensor fan (bottom rear of fridge) to make sure it is blowing air freely.
Make sure you have a good supply in the freezer, All of your cooling comes from the freezer section and a mostly empty freezer will result in more frequent running as ther is not enough stock to help maintian and hold freezing temperatures.
Check your freezer section to make sure there is no visible frost on the back wall of the freezer (down low on the panels behind and slightly above the lowest freezer basket. If you see frost starting to develop it means you have a defrost issue starting and will want to adress it rather quickly. Either a problem with the defrost control board (inside fridge/freezer control compartment) or the defrost thermostat (behind the freezer back panel on top of the evaporator coils).
Hopefully this helps!

The things in the freezer are not frozen and there is ice in the milk in the refrigerator. It a 6 year old Whirlpool side by side.


You possibly have a 2 part problem. Do a 12 defrost and make sure the product in the fridge is not near the auger (cold inlet vent into the fridge). Fridge gets its frost from the freezer compartment.

I have water pooling on my fridge trays and than turning into ice . The water seems to be coming from the vents. How do i get rid of that.


The freezer compartment has a drain hole behind the back wall inside the freezer compartment. The drain hole has probably rusted and has gotten larger. Carefully remove the icemaker and the screws from the back wall inside the freezer compartment. Lift the bottom of the back wall and look to see if the drain hole has gotten larger. You can make a small funnel from an aluminum can to fit over this area directing the water into the drain tube. It worked for me. good luck. Dave.

Whirlpool Fridge makes a loud dripping sound all the time G56SHE


Erin,

The water you hear sounds like it's coming from the automatic defroster in the freezer compartment. It runs down a drain tube into the pan you describe under the fridge. The pan is heated and evaporates the water.

Just some possible explanations if you are hearing "lots" of water"

* You may be in a warmer, more humid climate
* The temperature and humidity in your dwelling is elevated
* The door gasket on the freezer may be leaking
* The freezer is too full
* The freezer door is not closing properly
* The freezer door is being left open for extended periods
* There is a problem with the defrost cycle

If you are hearing water running all the time, check the ice maker water line and fill valve (if you have an ice maker) - there could be a leak or other malfunction.

Whirlpool gold, freezer on top, single door


hi thanks for the question the drain system is clogged the drain hose from the freezer to the drain tray undre neath the fridge by the compressor is clogged you may have to shut down the unit to let the ice melt that has caused this problem get a small plastic hose from a hardware store and shove it up the drain dose and blow air up the hose till its clear that's why you have to shut the fridge off for 24 hrs to allow the ice to melt then blow the air thanks the appliance doc
