Never heard of 220v refrigerators, but half voltage means that either L1 or L2 is defective. Is it fed from fuses or circuit breaker? Make sure that your incoming power line has 220v from L1 to L2.

Check the fuse or circuit breaker with volt meter, make sure you have 220v from L1 to L2

I have a Whirlpool el7atrrms05 L3 model (refrigerator only). The bottom of the fridge is cold but the top is not. It seems there is sufficient cooling for the lower level but no cold air is coming out of...

This can be due to block in the air pasage of the blower as the circulation is cut off. Please shut down the fridge for 6 hours and then power to see if the fault clears. If so check the auto defrost timer as forst could develop and clog the passage to restrict free flow. Also the defrost heater and thermostat must be checked, specially if the fridge is not cuttting off.

It doesnt heat up the motor runs but it blows cool air it is also electric

Disconnect the entire venting duct work and clean if necessary. If clogged full of lint in one area the sensor prevents the burner to produce any heat. If clear throughout the moister control sensor is at fault

Fridge and freezer not cooling. The fan is running

Is the compressor clicking? If so, the pressure may be too high. tHis happens if the temperature control is lowered too soon after the compressor cuts off, or if house power fails for a shorrt period, etc.

1. UNPLUG the power cord.
2. Set the temperature dial to the settings you want.
3. Close doors and wait a full 10 minutes (more if you don't get impatient).
4. After 10 full minutes, plug power cord back in. It should start now.
5. Try not to open fridge for an hour or so, or until you hear tyhe compressor cycle off.

Hope this hellps!

Servis fridge / frezer not colling or freezing

i would firstly do a complete defrost- incase there has been a fault with the frost free system. if after a full defrost it runs ok then there was a fault somewhere in the defrost system including either defrost heater, cut out or possible jammed circulation fan.

Light went out after 1 month.

We still cant get the cover off but as the fridge is only 1 month old I dont feel I should pay anything. In any case I'm not sure whether your sign means pounds, euros or dollars?
We are getting our son-in-law to come round next week and use brute force. We certainly shant buy any Whirlpool products again!
