I have a Whirlpool GX5FHTXTS Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer French Door and the fridge has stopped cooling. The freezer is fine. Its running as usual. I've tried unplugging it but still nothing. Any ideas?

    Yes. It is freezing the coils. When I defrost the coils it works again but within three days its frozen again!

    Does it defrost with its heaters or do you defrost it manually?

sounds as if you have an ice buildup restricting the fan from moving airflow to the freezer. Inside the freezer take apart the lower shelf and see if this area is full of ice, if so clean it and defrost it.

There is a defrost problem. Ice builds up between the ref and frz sections and wont allow coolo air through. You can also check to see if the damper is stuck closed

hopefully you looked out back ...rear lower panel and checked little white condenser fan running...it really needs too to keep temp stable across the condenser coils and no overheat condition to the compressor.hopefully you wont need the $300 circuit board like I just bought

look for a small hole on one side of the handle. There should be a set screw there you can tighten. (the handle attaches to a ball shaped peg under the handle, and does not attach from the inside of the door)

Water is being found under the frige and a iced up puddel in the inside of the frezzer


There are two causes for this problem which are

1. That the defrost element is no longer working; in which case it will need to be replaced; or

2. That the sump hole underneath the evaporator plate in the back of the freezer has bocome blocked and therefore when appliance goes into defrost mode, any ice melted off the evap plate has nowhere to run but into the bottom of the freezer.

Whirlpool stainless french door refrig...need to take handle off bottom freezer door so I can move it out of house. Is this possible without taking off the whole door?


it is much better to remove the complete door instead of handle . there are 4 screws inside that will release the complete door . if your want to do the handle use a credit card and insert it between the handle and door to release . but if stainless it some times leaves marks on door . i always remove the doors as one door is ever and i mean very costly.. mm hope this helps mm feed back pls ..
