Question about Whirlpool 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator ED27PQXF

Squeeled, then hot on exterior

My refrigerator made a squeeling sound, coming from the freezer side, about mid-way between the top and bottom. I turned off the ice maker and after awhile it stopped squeeling. After a few hours, we noticed that the side of the refrigerator at about the same spot is hot on the exterior. The gasket is warm on the refrigerator part too, at about the same height. Any help?

If you are getting heat around doors, You need to check the condensor fan. Remove toe panel and you should feel air blowing out. Clean the condensor coils if they are clogged. If you don't feel air coming out, pull unit out and remove back cover. You will see the fan that keeps the compressor and condensor cool. It should be running any time the compressor is running.

Hot on top, cold on the bottom on both sides


Mine did the same thing and the circuit board that controls the fans had gone bad . It could be that or the fan itself.

Freezer has warm spots. All around freezer is hot to the touch. Compressor is hot, coils are clean, condensor fan is running.


Thats normal.

The condenser coils are located just inside of your exterior cabinet walls on the sides and top.

So the freezer gets cold inside and heat has to be released from the condenser coils.
If this is something new, you may have a problem with the defrost timer

WHIRLPOOL TOP FREEZER ET1WTKXKQ01. NOT COLD ENOUGH


You need to look inside the freezer at the rear wall cover and see if it is frosted over. If your refrigerator is not defrosting that can cause the refrigerator side and the freezer side also not to cool to the desired temp.

We have a whirlpool freezer on top but the bottom of the fridge is freezing


Set both freezer and fresh food controls to their mid position.
If after 24 hours the temp is still too cold replace the thermostat aka cold control.

Refridgerator top freezer exterior wall hot


Hi.........
Folow these steps. It's worth a try.
1.Pull the fridge out from the wall and unplug it.
2. Clean the dust and lint off the compresser and everything else.
3. Also clean under the fridge.
4. The frame around the freezer door should cool down.

If the cooling fan was stuck , that may also be a cause for your refrigerator wall becoming hot.Check that too.
Hope My info is useful....Bye

Ge after replace fan still fan not working


Something to check for. Is the top of the refrigerator door lower than the freezer door? If so the ref. light may not be turning off all the time. Pull bottom panel off to expose hinges. The ref hinge should have an adjuster. Adjust door up to be level with freezer.
