Your defrost clock or the defrost element. Check the clock first. A new one is about $30.00

My Whirlpool Refrigerator/Freezer Model #GR2FHTXVQ00 or GR2FHTXVO00 is not keeping food cold. Food is spoiling. Freezer is cold but Refrigerator is warm.


With signs of freezing up in freezer area that would indicate a problem with the defrost components. The most likely reason would be a defrost control board. 2304093 Defrost Control Board
Here is a link to a parts manual for your model=> GR2FHTXVQ00.pdf(1101.27 KB) Look on page 3 and part location 4 That is the=> 2304093 Defrost Control BoardThe next possible parts are the 2314157 Defrost Heater Assembly found as item location 4 on page 9 of the PDF. It may be a good idea to change the defrost thermostat=> 2321800 Defrost Thermostat found on page 3 with item location 28. If you have questions please let me know, Thanks John TrippAppliance 911

I have a GE model GSS22JERFWW S/N AL243114.The freezer portion doesn't freeze the ice trays and the refrigerator portion doesnt keep anything cold as it should even tuned up to 9 whereas it used to...


Things to check: does the compressor run? Does the fan close to the compressor run? Does the inside fan run? Is the rear wall inside the freezer covered with frost? That would indicate that it is not going into defrost which will have the same result (no air movement). Does this help?

Whirlpool Gold freezes up to frige side


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Whirlpool Refrigerator fresh food section cool but not cold (freezer ok).


The most likely problem is in the defrost system. Behind the freezer panel there is not only an evaporator fan, but also the evaporator itself, and a defrost heater, termination bi-metal, and drain pan (or trough). You will likely find ice build-up in the evap coil. This could be caused by the defrost timer, the heater, or the termination bi-metal.
Have a service tech look at the unit.

Freezer and refrigerator will not get cold - fan runs but not ver


You will need to check for frost accumulation in the freezer section. The rear panel inside the freezer will need to be removed. If there is frost either the defrost bi metal or the heater are open. If both are ok the defrost control needs to be replaced depending on the model some defrost controls are electronic some are mechanical.
