My whirlpool fridge is getting warmer


there is a dampener control that lets air over to ref section, put your hand at the area to see if air is coming over from freezer.
if not look in freezer in back to see if it is all frozen, if so call tech.
if not push light button in freezer side with door open and liston for fan if fan does not run that is your problem.

Today I had a repair tech to the house about my Frigidaire ice maker for the FIFTH time. When I get ice, which is very infrequently, it melts within a few hours. I hear the sounds of the mechanism trying...


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
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 but you 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 fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Do I need new frig or hav it repaired. Hav water under vegetable drawers


Its the defrost problem.In your unit the defrost cycle is not running on time.This is the procedure of the unit.--- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to fridge passes from the section, in that section the damper is located.In your case the freezer gets cold, after that defrost cycle has to start, but in your case the defrost cycle is not starting on time so over ice gets internally build and when defrost cycle starts, this ice melts and this gets leaks in the vegetable and under vegetable drawer.-------- Get the defrost timer, and defrost assembly parts checked and repaired by the technician.Repairing will solve the problem.You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a Frigidaire top freezer refrigerator which stopped cooling the lower section while the top section stays frozen. I can hear it run through it's cycle but no freezer fan comes on. What would cause...


the evaporator fan is not spinning. the coil is getting too cold because the fan is not circulating the air across it. defrost it and see if the fan works. If not, they are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. There is an access cover on the back wall of the freezer. remove it, and the fan is right behind it.

My fridge is freezing food in the fridge section. The eggs closest to the freezer are all frozen, vegetables are frozen.


Hello,


Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for

the cold control and air deflector, As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control.


Hope this help in solving the problem....................

Freezer frosted,vegetable bin frozen i replaced mother board 2 weeks ago


you need to check your heater first unplug ref remove back panel in freezer section remove the wires from the heater and with an ohm meter check to see if you have continuity through heater if not you need to replace heater if so you need to check the defrost terminator located on the evaporator if this checks ok then you have a problem with the thermistor located at the bottom of the freezer just under the back panel

Fan stopped working, but the light is still on. Ice is melting in freezer and refrigerator is not cold.


check the backside if it's hot or warm.it's ok.if not, the tubes are clog.you will need a ref tech for that.
try this to make sure.defrost first, then turn it on.if the fan works ,then the fan is frozen or stuck up.if not then it's time to look for a ref tech.
