Question about Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator

3 Answers

Kitchenaid refrigerator/freezer Hello Noggin I have a kitchenaid side by side refrigerator (frost free) 4-5 years old, no longer under warranty. About a week or so ago the freezer stopped freezing, the refigerator seemed fine. So I turned the freezer temp control up a notch and when everything was frozen again I turned temp back down to normal. It was fine for another 3-4 days then it happened again. I pulled the grate off bottom and cleaned off the coils they had quite a bit of dust on them. Plugged it back in at normal temp and still wasn't freezing so I turned up a notch again then it froze but only lasted a day. This morning it was defrosting again. Do you have any idea what would cause this. Thanks Karene

    We are having exactly the same problem after 5 years and are awaiting a repair technician. We tried the same measures to correct the problem including cleaning the coils. Neal Swanson

Its not a major problem... It could be any of the following. The evaperator fan is not working in witch case the temps will rise soon and quickly you can check this by opening the freezer door and push the light switch if there is one and listen for the fan.

Next look at the back wall of the freezer and look fof FROST if you have frost then you have a defrost problem in withch case it could be a heater, limiter, timer, or control board.

or your thermostat is bad and is letting the compressor run longer than normal.

This should cover the most common problems.
