Side by Side fridge stops cooling and the works again !

I have a side by side whirpool refrigerator (12 years old - Model ed25dsxdw01). Suddenly it stop cooling (fridge and freezer) but if I move the main switch back to off and on again its starts working again and after some time (at least long enough to freeze a full galon of water) it shuts off. I have done this procedure a couple of time sand it seems a pretty consistent behaiviour, Any idea if this is a thermostat issue and how to fix it ?

thanks

    I have further diagnosed the problem .. once it stops cooling .. if I hit the module where the thermostat controls are .. the fridge will start working again until it shuts off again after some time (at least enough to freeze a galon of water) .. is this consistent witth the defrost timer ??

Soiunds like the defrost timer is bad, Unless your highly mechanically inclined I would go ahead and call out the service repair company and tell them to be sure to bring allong a timer fo your unit. Hope this helps and good luck.

Fridge and freezer suddenly not working only 1.5 yrs old


I guess the culprit in this case is the compressor.. Do you hear a sound when you are near the refrigirator.. it will be like a fan rotating at a high speed...

Something is going wrong with our 12 years old Kenmore side by side refrigerator. Freezer and refrigerator stop cooling and freezing. Only after I manipulate the dials a little and turn them to "coldest"...


you need check the currant draw on the compressor should between 1.2 to 1.6 amps under a load
you just might have a faulty thermostat control is what is sound like to me.

Warm fridge cool freezer


Hi folks,
IS, the freezer so packed full with packages that they are covering the air vents in the freezer that must be open to share the circulation with the fridge?
Let me know!

If not keep calling the server and pay him only when he fixes it!
