Re: whirlpool side by side fridge freezer

I have a Whirlpool side by side fridge. The lights in the fridge side started flickering and a humming sound. I found one bulb blown. I changed the bulb but the problem continued. When i tried to change all the bulbs the fridge stop working. The only thing that works are the lights in the freezer side and the light on the water and ice dispenser. Any ideas what the problem could be?

My whirlpool side by side fridge freezer power cut alarm will not stop going off temp display is reading -7 degrees Celsius in freezer but I put therometer in it and that is saying -17 degrees Celsius...

Are you sure it's not a temperature alarm rather than power? Check the thermistor isn't in a block of ice, give the freezer a good defrost, and check the condenser is nice and clean.

You may have a failing door switch which is causing this problem, if you remove the bulb and close the door, the the red light out? If so, its possible you bulb is fine, you door switch has failed.

My whirlpool refrigerator side will not cool

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Hi Heather and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. It took me over an hour but I did find your manual online. I first had to realize this was a UK model. Your manual is here:

You may have to go to his page first:

and enter this product code:


Per the users manual there is a vaction mode and it is discussed on page 9 of the manual.

The alarms are listed on page 10 of the manual:

The Vacation mode shuts off the fresh food compartment completely and there is not a temp display. The icon is in the lower RH side of the display window and is sleleced with the menu button. Per the manual you should keep depressing the menu button until the Vacation icon is not longer displayed. (Icon is a beach lounger chair and umbrella)

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
