Whirlpool ED5PHAXSB side by side refrigerator not cooling...

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator Model ED5PHAXSB 15 months old...

The refrigerator isn't getting cold enough. The freezer seems to be working a little too well at times as parts of the freezer has frost buildup. The problem is the refrigerator doesnt seem to be getting much cool air at all. The milk keeps spoiling regardless of the expiration date. My husband and I are pretty handy, what may be the problem and can is this something we can fix ourselves? Thanks in advance!

There are a lot of possibilitys. You'll have to use the process of elimination.

But it could be the thermostat (make sure your setting is midway) The milk spoiling indicates it is too warm so bacteria is breeding

Get a refrigerator / freezer stand alone thermostat (about $5) That will give you accurate readings. The fridge shoud be between 35 and 40 F and the freezer 0 plus or minus 3 when set correctly

It could be your condensor fan is clogged or just that your coils need cleaning (underneath or behind) Use a vacuum with the brush end or chisel point. Dust can cut you efficiency by 20 or 30% by itself.

Assuming this is frost free model the defrost timer may be acting up in the freezer.

Forgive me for not knowing where the coils are and if it is frost free but I can't find a manual for this particular model. However the principles apply in any case.

Either the starter relay on the compressor has went bad or you are low on freon are the two most likely culprits. Listen for a clicking noise - that is the starter relay trying to start the compressor

Freezer / Refrigerator not cooling


When the fans are running the compressor should also be running. If the compressor is hot but not running you have a compressor problem. If the compressor is running check for frost on back wall of the freezer compartment which would indicate a defrost system problem. At five years old have you cleaned the condenser where the heat is transferred to the outside air in the room?
