Question about Westinghouse WRS3R3EW 33" 22.6 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/ Plastic Freezer Basket, 4-Button...
Hi, I have a Westinghouse Wse6100WA side by side Fridge. The fridge compartment is not cooling properly and the freezer is icing behind the panel inside the back of the freezer and then visibly inside the freezer as well. The more iced up it gets-the temperature goes up. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Westinghouse aren't helpful at all. I am in Australia so may be different model code in other countries. thanks.
This is a bad design flaw, the fridhe is cooled by fan forced air from the freazer. Two ducts vent into and out of the fridge fron the freezer and ice can block them up (which you can find if you take off all the plastic at the top and back of the fridge).
Hence, when they block up, the frindge does not cool, hence the thermostat tells the fridge to keep running which makes the freezer colder and colder, making the blockage worse.
You need to not only fully defrost the freezer (which can be done quicker by removing the plastic panel in the back of the freezer and using a hairdryer) BUT also fully dry the fridge before turning it back on.
To stop it happening again, avoid puting unvovered liquids or hot items in the fridge. Also avoid leaving the fridge and freezer doors open for long especially in humid conditions. As I said, it's a bad design.
