Question about Whirlpool 21.7 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator ED22PQXF

1 Answer

Loud Humming and Hot Front Panel

My Whirlpool side by side refrigerator is making a loud humming sound. In addition, it appears to be on permanent defrost because the panel at the front (on which doors magnetize to close), is very hot. How can I disconnect the autodefrost in this refrigerator?

DONT TOUCH ANYTHING. IF IT IS COOLING CORRECTLY LEAVE IT. LOUD HUMMING IS COMMON ON SOME COMPRESSORS.(ANNOYING I KNOW).THE HEATING ON THE FRONT IS NORMAL AS IT IS THE MULLON HEATERS WHICH RUN THROUGH THE FRAME. IF THAT AREA WERE COLD, CONDENSATION WOULD OCCUR AND WOULD DRIP CONTINUOUSLY.

It sounds like the evaporator fan is hitting ice that is built up on the evaporator coil. When it's making the noise, open the freezer door and see if it stops.
(Most models are wired so that the evaporator fan cuts off when the freezer door is open.)
Check the inside back, lower panel of the freezer for ice built up or frost on it. If there is, you have a defrost problem that is most likley a bad heater. It's located around the coil inside the freezer behind the panel you will be looking at. The defrost problem would explain the freezer not freezing ice cream.

Hello the fault is most likely to be the defrost system building up frost around the fan and causing the bad sound to prove this just turn off freezer for about 10 hours to defrost and restart if noise has gone away then your defrost system is faulty

Kenmore side by side refridgerator ice around freezer fan


I am looking up your refrigerator to see the right parts. Sounds like the defrost cycle is not happening. look for a defrost or adaptive defrost board. Check your model number again because I am not able to find the number listed. I will continue to check for the correct refrigerator and if you find a simple defost timer turn it clockwise slowly until you feel and hear a click. If you do and you may hear the elements heat up inside the freezer. If that happens just put a new defrost timer and you should be set. Sea Breeze

suspect you have a problem with the defrost system and hence the noise with the fan. take back panel off inside the freezer and if i'm right, melt ice off with a hairdryer. get back to me to say the results if you want
