Whirpool sb540w cooling problem

I have a problem with my american fridge freezer, it is not cooling the fridge. I understand that the problem is in the freezer section. When i removed the covers the freezer unit did not appear to be frozen, The fan is working but the duct is not opening to circulate the cold air into the fridge. The central partition between the freezer and fridge appears to be hot to touch. What are the possible solutions to fix this problem.

sounds like the freezer evaporator has iced /frosted up and you will not get cold airflow through it. try a 24 hour defrost to clear it. then check fridge cooling.

SOURCE: Fridge freezer over heating and is not cooling fridge section

It is normal for the middle strip to be hot. Did you check the temp setting in the fridge section?
Also - you might check for blockage in the bottom. Excessive dirt/dog hair can block the air flow.
Good luck

Problem seems to be solved. I unplugged it for a short time and plugged it back in. I'm guessing it needed to be re-set.

Whirpool wgi fridge freezer, fridge not cooling?


Most frideges get all their cooling from the freezer. There will be a fan and duct in the back of the freezer that pushes cold air down into the fridge. If the duct is blocked with ice or the fan motor has quit. Your freezer will work fine but the fridge will barely cool at all. Check that the fan runs when the compressor is running, ( turn both temp knobs to the highest cooling and leave door open until comp. comes on). If the fan runs your duct is plugged. If not you need a new " Freezer Fan Motor". Most are simple to replace and cost around $100.00.

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

I have whirpool fridge freezer american style and the temp lights flashing on and off wont turn off what can i be


Check the coil at the back of the freezer for ice buildup. Should there be ice build up, have it defrosted and cleaned. If that does not solve it check out the thermistor, also located at the back at a panel. It may have gone bad.
