Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

1 Answer

Whirlpool Fridge and Freezer quit cooling properly at the same time.

I have a Whirlpool Refidgerator/Freezer. The were bought neww 3 years ago. Friday I got in the Freezer and my icecream was soft, I assumed the door was not closed tight ( I have kids. I made sure the door was closed and went to bed. Saturday the fridge was still working fine, icecream still soft. Sunday both fridge and freezer not working. The food is hot. There is a motor running, I pulled it out and cleaned everything real good, and turned temp to the coldest on both. What should I do? My Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer also quit cooling in a very similar way on Monday, May 26, 2009. The model number of my fridge is ED5CHQXKQ00, Type 25SSA. It's about 8 years old. There is a fan still running, however neither the refrigerator or freezer sides cool to lower than 57F despite having the controls set to the coldest positions.

My whirlpool reftrigertor side by side, fridge side is hot and the seals are extremely hot. I just bought it today at a tag sale, it is only a year oldm, what can the problem be?


If the cooling is OK specially in the freezer and the fridge, then you need not have to worry on much. If there is no cooling then the unit must be checked for failure in the sealed unit.
However you can select a NORMAL thermostat setting for the fridge /.freezer , set it lower than the present settings. Also check and see if the unit had the panels removed, if so the insulation of the heat exchange coils could have come off and it might be heating the side metal wall of the fridge.
The heating of the coil is quite normal as due to the heat exchange needed for the cooling.

The top freezer cools like a fridge, the bottom fridge is warm


The fluxating temps bottom to top and top to bottom freezing are a result of the "air damper and baffle assy" not functioning properly. I would attempt fo make my case with LG that this started while the unit was under full warranty and persists today.

Both Fridge and Freezer quit working properly at the same time.


I will need the model number as shown in photo below where the locations are most likely to be. While I am waiting I am going to go over some models like yours to see what may possibly be wrong.

Fridge and freezer not cold enough since we moved


remove the panel at the reaar of the freezer. you should have a full frost pattern on your evaporator (frosted not snow packed) and the fan should be running. if you do not have a full frost pattern then you have a sealed system leak. covered under the first five years of your warranty
