    I had the same problem a couple months ago. It was caused by the defrost in the freezer not working right. It had iced up so much that the valve which takes the cold air from the freezer into the fridge was all plugged up. Check that. In the back of the freezer at the bottom - see if you see ice build up on the defroster assembly.

    Mine is under a service plan so somebody came to clean it all up and they exchanged a part which may have been not sensing when to turn on the defrost cycle.

Whirlpool 6th sense fridge freezer electronic panel - how do i unlock? child lock not on


Emma:

The lock and unlock feature is accomplished by holding the lock button for 3 seconds, and you will see a count down number just above it that indicates 3, then 2, then 1, and a soft tone along with the lock icon appears. To reverse this hold the same button for 3 seconds following the same procedure and the unlock icon will appear.

Freezer and fridge not cold at top! Bottom of freezer is staying frozen but ice in icemaker is melting. Compressor is running fine, just not getting cold. Water was not coming out of water dispenser. ...


Are your evaporator fans working?

Since I am not there I can't take a look at it and tell you with certainty that this or that is the problem, but I can tell you a few things to check to localize the problem.

If the cooling fan is not operating, there is nothing that will force the even distribution of cold air, and since cold air falls, it would make sense that both the refrigerator and freezer sides are cold but the upper areas are not. So that is the first thing I would check, if it isn't working, then you will need to find out why.

A second possible is that something is wrong with your defrost circuit (probably timer) and your defrost heater is constantly on.

Either of these possibles could cause the problem you describe.

My whirpool 6th sense american fridge freezer has stoped making ice? The water is still live, th eonly problem appears to be the level control arm which is in the up position and want move?


Be very careful, when the ice maker malfunctions, many things can be the culprit. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com
