Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool refrigerator that gets too warm before cooling

I have a whirlpool refrigerator model # ET8MTM
and it warms up to 49 degrees before it kicks on to cool. It then cools to 39 degrees.
I'm thinking it is the thermostat or the dial to raise and lower the temp.
Any ideas ?
Also, if I turn the dial either way when warm, it begins cooling.

Make sure you condensor fan is running. Our gets clogged up with dog hair sometimes and when the fan cannot run the fridge cannot cool.

Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice or is cold . If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your refrigerator side is warm, or not cooling.

Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Since I tried to help you, Please help me and Rate/Vote on the response. Thanks

The thermostat should only control within a specific range of temperatures. I believe your thermostat needs to be replaced.
