You hire a professional to check it for you but I am quite sure it's the freon gas that has run out. Just like my refrigerator. One day, it just stopped cooling although it still powers on until now. You can have your freon replaced by the manufacturer or through an authorized refrigeration and conditioning shop in your area.

Model # bx2255w Amana Refridgerator bottom freezer works but refridge isn't cooling any more. Is it time to retire our approx 15 year old fridge or is there an easy fix?


If you have high humidity or the door gets opened a lot, the evaporator coil may need a good defrosting. There are defrosting devices in the unit like the timer, heating coils, thermostats that could be bad. There should also be a small fan in the freezer that transfers the air to the refrigerator section. If that's not spinning only the freezer will work.

If you find the fan and it's working you can do a thorough manual defrost by removing the food, unplugging the unit and letting it set for a day with the doors wide open. Have some big towels handy :)

After a day, plug it in and see what it does (don't add food, yet). If it cools down then you will know that the compressor is still good and it's worthwhile to fix.

Easy fixes: Timer and fan.
Moderate fix (cheap part - more labor) - Defrost thermosat
Pain in the **** fix: Defrost heaters.

I have a Westinghouse, 2-door refridgerator/freezer. It's a 2004 model. It has stopped cooling suddenly. The motor runs, and it's pushing air through the internal vents, but it just isn't cooling. There...


The overload relays down on the side of the compressor have been blown. Inexpensive to replace and this will fix your problem. Good luck and hope this helps.

My Whirlpool refrigerator model ED20DB/DF the freezer portion seems to have stopped freezing, but the refridgerator side sems ok??


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

I have a ed5fhgxkq00 side by side Whirlpool refridgerator that stopped cooling. It worked fine up until last night when we noticed that the ice was melting. Now it gets a little cool but not cool enough....


If the compressor has a fan next to it, be sure it is running. if the relay is clicking every few minutes it may need to be replced. contact local parts distributor.
