I had probably the same problem. After a little discussion with the factory they sent a technician as a "Good Will Gesture." The technician told me it was the control board down by the compressor. I overheard a conversation between he and his central repair office that it was a common problem. The factory would not admit it. I have a feeling the electronic control board he replace (which would have cost several hundred bucks) was probably made in China. Now I'm having more problems with my Ohio made Whirlpool side-by-side. The freezer is working fine, the fridge is not very cold. By the way, the internal lights was one of the keys to the problems.

Hi I have a whirlpool s20d rsb33-a/g american fridge freezer. the centre panel where the two doors meet is red hot, the freezer alarm keeps going of. and some times there is a clicking noise. can any


Your compressor is clearly overheating when this happens. Cause can be lack of airflow at condenser fan,defective fan and/or defective compressor start/run components. The compressor will also cause these symtoms when the start relay and run or start capacitor become defective. I don't recommend running refrigerator under these conditions as this can cause internal overload on compressor to weaken. Thanks, Sea Breeze

the clicking is from the lamp relay which makes the lights flicker and its located on the units rear area in the back,without a model number i cant tell what this boards model number is but you need to replace this whole board as they are non repairable(this is usually caused by a power surge or outage,which can destroy these boards,also even if a lamp in the unit burns out this can destroy this board too)

A serious problem You have to take assistance from a technician. Due to overload as the door was left opened either the compressor motor or the condenser is burnt out. Please have it checked up. You will not be able to repair it yourself as it may require replacing parts.

Hi freezer on american style fridge freezer is


there is a defrost mode that melts any frost or ice on the evaporator coils and drains it into a pan under the fridge. if that drain is blocked, the water will pool inside. also check the door seals. if warm moist air leaks in, it'll condense on the cold interior and pool as well.
