If you have ice on back wall of freezer compartment the self defrosting mechanism of unit is not working. check the defrost timer and defrost heating element for peoper operation.

SOURCE: We have a Westinghouse WSE6100SA

This could also be an issue with simply too much food in the fridge blocking some of the air channels or that there are containers in there which are uncovered which contribute to high humidity in the box.The unit may also be left open too much.  
Before blaming the manufacturer/servicer...let's look at the usage cycle.  This ice is coming from somewhere!  Do a full defrost of the unit.  Keep it closed after loading in food.  What is the temperature in the box?  40F in the fridge and 0 F in the freezer is about right.  Use an outdoor thermometer and check after an hour of closed door.

SOURCE: freezer not freezing food and fridge not staying cold enough

Check the compressor with a volt meter, if the compressor is getting proper voltage then check the relay. But this sounds like a problem with the compressor

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

My Westinghouse Freestyle Freezer FJ383 wobbles on the floor. How do I fix?


There are feet on each coner that can be turned to make them go up or down. you may need a person to slightly lift or tilt the unit and a pair of strong pliers to get the feet turning.

Westinghouse virtuoso the alarm keeps going off fridge not cooling freezer is not freezing. Help!


Try adding refrigerant or freon. The Alarm just warns you that it's not cooling or freezing and your food is thawing out. Check the fan if you hear the fan running it should be the coolant needs to be put in it. Or it could possibly be both.

Westinghouse fj383


ne of the most common reasons for the freezer to start failing is called "frost free failure." Ice can build up on the evaporator coils over time, and this ice builds up until it starts blocking the fan. The fan is responsible for circulating cold air throughout the freezer, so if it is blocked the freezer will not be able to freeze any food. You can usually check this by removing an access panel in the back of the freezer to inspect the coils. If ice is built up on the coils, a hairdryer can assist in defrosting them

Freezer not working


Your refrigerator has a Control-defrost,adaptive timer ,PC board part number 241508001
This is providing your model is the one listed above your post WRS3R3EW. The model you listed in post does not come up. Until we can determine that the freezer is not defrosting you need to unplug and remove the back panel of freezer compartment to see if the evaporator coils are frozen or clear. If frozen this alone will cause a chain reaction that keeps vents to fresh food compartment open and cause freezing in that area. Go to link below and enter model number WRS3R3EW0 Then you will see a list of diagrams on left side, chose #11 this will show the control parts. Click link below Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a Westinghouse upright freezer FJ383M-R. The red light was on bright and the top half of freezer was not working. Turns out it was a switch that turns the defrost cycle on was faulty. Serveman replaced borken part. Now it is fine. Was much cheaper than replacing freezer.
