I already posted this, but here it is...

The outage/start relay needed replacing. I tried it, and it worked. (The kit came with insturctions.) Total cost: $64 (Would have been cheaper if I would have been willing to wait a couple of days - +/-$45.00.)

I want to replace faulty freezer thermostat in whirlpool side by side fridge mod ed22dqxew01 --am having trouble removing cover for freezer-refridgerator control dials. I removed two screws in rear of


First question why are you replacing the freezer thermostat? Do you have an ice build up on the rear wall of the freezer? This build up if you do have it is not due to the thermostat control for the freezer. It is termed as a defrost issue due to a fault condition being present in the defrost thermostat, the defrost heater, or the defrost timer or adaptive control depending on which type of refrigerator you have. I will await your reply as to why you are replacing the control thermostat and if you do have any ice up condition before posting further how to solve this situation. I await your reply
Thank you

Freezer is not cold enough all food is dethawing


Hi,
I'm Leo
This is a common defrost problem, The ice
is not being melted by the defrost system. he fan can't blow into ref.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check evaporator fan in freezer
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Most likely a deforst issue, having to do with either the Defrost thermostat or the Defrost timer, given that this unit is not the newer style with the control board instead of the timer. Anymore questions feel free to ask.

You have 1 of 3 things going on. Either the defrost timer has gone bad, the defrost terminator is bad or the defrost heater is bad. The problem is one of these 3 things and even if you replace all 3 items the repair is still inexpensive to do.

Whirlpool gold:upper half of refridgerator side not cold


Either the evap fan has a problem, or the defrost system has failed. You should never see frost in the freezer section as the defrost sensor should sense that the coils need to be defrosted before that much frost accumulates.

Unplugging to clean out helped because the frost got a chance to melt away.

If you find the evap motor is running, then the things to check are the defrost sensor, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater.

Reply back if you would like more info.
