Whirlpool Referigator Side x Side Not Cooling

Problem 08275MC
I am having a problem with a Whirlpool Referigator Side by Side M/N - ED25Q FXHW00 , S/N- SK0143090. The problem goes something like this. The refrigerator and freezer will work properly for several days in a row. Then it will be found not running and the ice in the freezer starting to melt. The problem can seemingly be corrected by turning the thermostat (cold control) to the off position. And then returning it to its normal setting. At this time the refrigerator will kick on and start running and will once again work properly until the next time it is found off and ice melting in the freezer. This same scenario has been going on for many weeks now and the problem does not seem to get any better or any worse. At first thought it would appear the that the cold control is defective, however, if that is the case. Why will it work for several days in a row as it should, and then shut off and not restart? Is this a constant cut in type thermostat and could this have anything to do with the problem? Can you propose a possible solution or solutions with an explanation as to what is occurring here.

This is a link to your manual.
Sounds as if the auto defrost circuit is malfunctioning.

    Additionally, if it is in a cold environment like a garage (since you state you dont check it daily - until the ice is melting) the auto defrost may be sensing the air is too cold, and going into defrost mode.

    cold control thermostat is your most likely component to fail

    test it by tapping it instead of turning it off & back up next time. If the compressor kicks in when you tap it, you have found the culprit

AMA BX21 7 years old Came home found freezer warm and thoughted, top referigator was still almost cold, have bben gone 5 days---the compressor keeps trying too start but cuts off after 30 seconds ,...


Look inside the fresh food compartment. Behind the temp. control cover is a defrost timer. Yours may have a small opening that you can put a pencil eraser in and turn clockwise. When you do that the refrigerator should begin cooling again. I will be here to help you get your refrigerator going with diagrams and part numbers, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Hi I on 1-6-09 submitted a request as follows: Problem 08275MC I am having a problem with a Whirlpool Referigator Side by Side M/N - ED25Q FXHW00 , S/N- SK0143090. The problem goes something like...


well   i cant refund you but i will do my best to help you.   it seems that you have two problems.   everybody knows metal shrinks when it gets cold.  i see that as part of your problem.   something in the control panel is getting cold and shrinking off of its mark.  most likely the thermostat.  which leads me to your second problem.  have the thermostat looked at.  if i was close   i would look at it personally.   i do apologize for the charges to your credit card.  i hope that your future Fixya.com experiences are much better

good luck
