Question about Whirlpool ED2FHKXRL 23 cu.ft.Satina Side by Side Refrigerator 220-240 V
Can someone please assist me. I am at my wits end! This fridge is disastrous. Nothing but issues. I called the repair man out just before the Warranty ran out and the same issue still exists however now out of warranty. Freezer section works fine. Fridge section does not keep entirely cold. Top section warmer. Cannot feel much cold air coming through the top vent from freezer however when you open the freezer door, you can then feel the cold air coming through. When you press on the button in the freezer as though the door is closed the air is still blowing cold. It is only when the door is physically closed the airs stops blowing. The vent half way down the fridge constantly clogs with ice. I have blow dried the vents to ensure all ice melts (which I was advised to do my the repair man). I have turned the fridge off to ensure the hoses aren't clogged with ice. I have cleaned the coils under the front of the machine. Anyone have any other suggestions? Would be most appreciated :)
Could be short of gas or a partial blockage, Best try shutting down for at least 24 hrs ,this will I hope help to clear any blockage when motor restarts Good luck

As I was looking up the specs and going through the troubleshooting process regarding your problem, I quickly recognized that your refrigerator is designed to work on 220-240 Volts Alternating Current [VAC] load using a 50 Hertz frequency [cycle] grid; which begs me to ask the question, 1.) Do you live outside the United States?
Because if you live in the U.S or Canada for example, our electrical systems run on 60 Hertz frequency grids- and our refrigerators and freezer appliances are 120VAC.
And I know many European countries use green "smart" plugs which is okay to use on resistive loads like small heaters and incandescent lamp fixtures, but not on motorized appliances like refrigerators or electronics- since refrigerators have several motors in them, and the more modern ones have electronic components as well; this can be a problem; because green plugs and power converters have been known to cause all kinds of problems in fridges, such as moisture buildup due to slower fan speeds, and compressor starting and heating problems.
2.) Are you using any green plugs
3.) or any power converters?
Hoping to hear from you soon.
