As far as I'm aware, refrigerator doors don't have auto locks on them. What you're describing sounds like the door has a fantastic seal from a temperature change between the inside of the fridge and the room around it. When there is a drastic change, (usually warm) the refrigerator seal will seem to stick. This will wear off over time, or when the temperature changes.

Hi. Your temperature control board display is bad. You may also have a power convertor board located next to the compressor. Normally you would replace the temperature control board first. I have a temperature control board listed on Ebay as item number 250211412492. Good luck, Mack

your  problem on this is the main control in the compressor compartment. unplug your refrig then remove this control unplug all connectors and reconnect. this will probably get you working temporarily In almost every case I've seen we ended up replacing the control board. thx peyton

SOURCE: Whirlpool Refrigerator Door Seal surface is HOT.

If the air flow on the condenser under the fridge is too low, the hot gas won't be cooled enough before it goes to the door jamb to stop condensation. Remove the plastic cover under the doors and look at the condenser (tube/wire thing underneath). If it is clogged with fluff, get a vacuum and nozzle and give it a good clean so the air can pass through. Other than that, your condenser fan may have stopped.

Somehow the freezer door became locked and I can't figure out how to unlock it.


There is no lock on your refrigerator for either door. The lock/unlock button is only for the dispenser to keep small children from dispensing ice or water. If your door won't open it could be a few things. First, a package on one of the shelves dropped and is jamming the door on the inside. May require removal of the top hinge so you can tilt the door top forward and look inside to see what happened. Next, you may have one of the door hinges that actually broke and is keeping the door from opening. You will need to look close at both hinges but I would guess the bottom hinge would cause this more that the top since the door weight is all on the bottom hinge. The only thing that holds the doors closed is a magnetic gasket on most side by side models under normal conditions.

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.

The refrigerator is not cooling enough.


You will need remove the screws in the back of the freezer section, check to see if the little fan is turning, if not you will have to replace the fan motor, this is what circulates the air and keep the fresh food side cool.

Refrigerator side is freezing contents


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

If your settings are right then the cold control switch is the problem
