Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

Older unit not working?

We were away for the weekend, and came back to find a leak coming from underneath the refrigerator. The lights came on in the unit, but it was warm inside. We have a side by side, that was here when we bought the house in 2002. We're trying to determine if it can be repaired or cleaned (ourselves?), or if it is time to replace. We took out the potentially spoiled foods that day. A day later the unit cooled to the right temp again. Its hard at this point to trust the unit enough to put food back in there.

Water leaking under fridge


a contant runing of water is most likely a leak in the ice maker supply hose , an intermitant drip of water is a drip pan thats full in bottom of fridge (closest to floor ) this water comes from the auto defrost cycle most times this water evaporates away , but as fridge gets older it makes more frost that needs melted hence more water ,sometimes it over comes the pan and runs to floor , a good flashlight and getting down to look underneath usually tells you source of leak

Hotpoint refrigerator leaking water from hose underneath


It sounds like this may be coming from the icemaker water valve. If the refrigerator is an older one the tubing gets brittle and cracks. Check this first. But the water valve is usually on the left side in the back.

Whirlpool gold refrigerator leaking under neath on the side


If its leaking all the time you could have a problem with the water supply line (if it has an icemaker)Or the solenoid valve (water valve) that opens to refill the icemaker after it drops (harvests) the ice.Or the plastic water lines that run from the valve up to the icemaker.You should pull the frig out from the wall and check the back for leaks.You could also Just shut off the water supply to the unit and see if it stops.These leeks cause a lot of damage when they go unnoticed for a long time.I would check it out asap.

Hello - did you ever figure out the metal/chemical smell problem? I seem to be having the same problem in my refrigerator/freezer. It is a side-by-side unit. We were gone over the Labor Day weekend for a few days and when we came back the unit has a metal/iron smell coming from it. Not sure what it could be.
Please let me know if you have any ideas.

We have the WH95TP unit on our boat. It has worked great for 10 years. Last weekend there was water leaking from behind the unit. We turned it off and turned the water flow off and left for the week. When...


Was the unit running when it was warm? If it was then you need a tech to look at the sealed system. If it wasnt running then you need to adjust the icemaker ejector blade so its straight up (12 oclock) Thats when it will allow the compressor to come on.

Kenmore fridge is leaking inside from light switch


The drip pan is underneath on the floor. You don't really need to see it. Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Kenmore Refrigerator cooling fluctuating


IS this unit a frost free? I'm wondering if the motor in your timer is running slow.If that happens it could take too long before the freeze cycle comes back on. Or check the terminator out. Either that or check the electric to make sure nothing shuts off the unit like a timer for the lights.
