SOURCE: Whirlpool Fridge/Freezer Door Seal Replacement. Model: ART 462/3

In short no as long as you get the correct seal type from a spares shop, or Whirlpool. Just make sure that it is straight and there are NO gaps or splits in it when you refit it. Usually these will come pre cut to size for the particular model of FF but you can also buy seal strip on a reel from many spares shops. Also when you have removed the old seal make sure that you use a degreasing cleaner to clean around where the old seal was located and make sure the area is dry before fitting the new one.

SOURCE: WHIRLPOOL FRIDGE FREEZER MODEL ART 201. REPLACING

Hello,
It is often the case that if the thermostat is not working, the best route to take is to replace it rather than try to fix it, unless you have the necessary knowledge to do so. Most of the time, these are not as expensive as you would think and can be easily installed into the refrigerator. Here are some steps to follow to find out what the best route for you to take is in repairing or replacing your thermostat.

Good luck.....
Locate the thermostat and get all necessary model numbers, serial numbers and model codes. This information should be available for the refrigerator itself as well. Use this information to find and purchase the correct thermostat for your refrigerator.
Next, remove all power from the unit. Unplug the unit completely and make sure that it is not running before moving forward. Then, remove the old thermostat by cutting through the wiring.
To install the new thermostat, trim the lead wires to the right length. They are generally too long to start with. Terminate back into the circuit. The device will act as if it is a switch. This means that the direction or the coloring of the wires is not important. So long as you can cut off the current moving through them to the main defrost element you have no problem.
Make sure to properly dress the wires to insure that no part of them comes into contact with the defrost elements as this can cause them to melt.
Replacing a thermostat doesn’t have to be a lot of work, when you know what the problem is and can get easy access to the parts you need. Determine if your thermostat is bad by running through those tests first. When you do replace it, make sure to test to make sure it is working properly by allowing the unit to cool for several hours and testing the temperature within it.

After defrosting, the freezer will not start. - Whirlpool fridge.


I presume that you still have got electricity power and the fuse has not 'blown' - if not you could try putting in a new fuse in the plug, sometimes two problems can occur simultaneously.

Otherwise I would leave the door shut to keep the stuff as cold as possible, some may refreeze, or ask a neighbour, friend, or relative to let me have some space in their freezer.

Relay of my fridge blows off each time i replace


There is a dead short on the compressor which is drawing too much current through the relay hence the heat and the blowing etc.

You need a new motor

Freezer not freezing food and fridge not staying cold enough


Check the compressor with a volt meter, if the compressor is getting proper voltage then check the relay. But this sounds like a problem with the compressor

Whirlpool fridge not cooling gone warm air blowing


more than likely the compressor is not starting, it has a starting device on the left side of the compressor which has a relay/overload called a relay, remove the relay and shake it , if it rattles it has gone bad. the relay/overload combination has gone bad and can be replaced with pro41 relay. if the compressor has a run capacitor just eliminate the capacitor when replacing with new relay. connection of the two wires makes no difference.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

Freezer/Refigerator not working


You need to check if the compressor is running. If it is not the relay on the compressor might be blown out. That is a very comon part on whirlpool made units. Unplug the unit and remove the cover on the compressor and take the relay off. If you shake it and you hear a lot of noise from it like small rocks the relay is bad. Its not a expensive part ti replace.
