SOURCE: WATER DRIPS DOWN FROM INSIDE TOP REFRIGERATOR BELOW FREEZER

Not an original solution - but a good one. Remove panels at the back of the freezer compartment to expose the heater unit or heater wire that defrosts the freezer coils and wrap a solid copper wire gently around the heater/ heater wire and place the loose end in the drain. This will conduct heat to the freezer drain and help keep it open. I did see a manufactured part in one of the appliance parts websites but it did not match my unit.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Side By SIde Refrigerator Freezer stopped cooling

5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked. if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes: 1. low refrigerant 2. no fan 3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals 4. the condensate drain tube is clogged if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s). no air, no fan. Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.

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: My Whirlpool refrigerator Model # ED5RHEXNL00 Ice maker broken

Hello. Thanks for choosing fixya! The most common cause for your problem is that someone accidentally raised the wire in the icemaker area that turns it off. Check that first if the wire is up, push it down and within a few hours you will have new ice. The second most common problem is that the cubes in the mold got stuck in there. the fix is to use a blow dryer to free them up, then dry out the mold and spray some PAM cooking spray in to the mold to lubricate it. The final possibliity is that there is ice in the water supply line that feeds your ice maker. Once again get out the blow dryer and thaw that ice so that the water flows once again. good luck with it. regards, joe

SOURCE: whirlpool et18gk freezer working frige not

Since we know the machine is producing cold, that is a plus. The cold is created in the freezer. From here, a fan moves it through vents into the frig. From the frig it goes back into the freezer and makes a big loop.

What you probably have here is a motor to the fan in the freezer gone out. If you want to fix it yourself I'd be happy to tell you how. If you want to know if it's worth fixing, I would say most definitely. I would expect $40-$80 for the fan motor then labor on top of that. The fan part number is 2315539.You should be able to order the part anywhere that sells appliance parts by that number with no problem at all.

We have a Whirlpool with the freezer on top. The freezer is around 5 degrees, but the refrig. won't go below 47 even at the coldest setting. We vacuumed all of the vents and tubes in the lower front


The fan in the freezer may have stopped working. Or it could be the defrost drain tube is stopped up. Remove the rear plate in the freezer to expose the fan motor. With the rear cover off You can see if the freezer box has frozen over the drain. If so unplug refrigerator use a hair dryer to melt the ice. Keep heating the drain area until water runs down through the drain. Fan motors are available by model number on line or at local appliance stores.

I have a refrigerator model #GD5PHAXMS10 icemaker that stopped working about two and a half weeks ago. At that time the water the water works dispenser worked like normal. Today the water dispenser...


Hello,

The first thing to do if you already haven't is replace the filter,it's in the grill/kickplate below the freezer door. If you have relpaced filter,need to pull refrig from wall and check that their is good water pressure from house plumbing,if it is good the water valve the sends water to icemaker&door dispenser when water is called for is going to be the problem.The part # for that valve is 4389177 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store on oline at;
searspartsdirect.com
apdepot.com
repairclinic.com
assuredparts.com

The filter BUT NOT the water valve could be purchased locally at Sears,Lowe's or Home Depot

I hope this helps you to diagnose your icemaker/dispenser

Freezer works great, but refrigeration section stopped working


Check the door seals on fridge and freezer to make sure there are NO leaks.
Try manually adjusting air flap that controls air from freezer to fridge, the flap may be frozen or the actuator that controls the flap may be faulty.
