Question about Whirlpool Gold White-on-White 21.9 cu. ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Ice and Water GD2SHAXLQ Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

I have a Whirlpool sxs refrigerator not staying cool enough

I have a Whirlpool side by side refrigerator (GD25DFXN02) that is running but it's not cold enough. It would cool down for awhile but then lose it's cooling temp. There isn't any loud noises coming from the compressor, cleaned the coils underneath, unplugged the fridge to see if it needed to defrost (no water pooling), fans appear to be working. But, I did hear a faint clicking noise on the refrigerator side where the controls on the top are. Can anyone help? This fridge has given us no other problems in the 9-10 years we have had it.

SOURCE: Whirlpool side by side Refrigerator not cooling, two -- where -18 temp used to be.

the fact the bowl was filled with water and that you said the inside of the freezer was coated with ice, indicates a failure of the defrost system.
now the ice has gone, reset the temps and wait to see what happens

There is a tray that is in the bottom, remove the cover thats located just under the doors in front. You will see it most of time black in color and it will be easy to pull out be careful for it will be full. Its from condensation most the time in the summer this happens really no problem. if thats not it check the ice maker water supply line that could be it also.

SOURCE: Have a whirlpool side by side refriferator estate

Plastic box you're referring to contains the start components for the compressor. The clicking sound sound you hear is the protective overload shutting the compressor off because it won't start.
Two possibilities
1. The components inside the plastic box (cover) are defective and need replaced. You can remove them, by snapping off the cover and pulling them straight off. Most appliance parts houses will be happy to test them.
2. The compressor has failed internally.
Note: In my personal experience when dealing with whirlpool Estate models, 99% of the time it has been a failed compressor.

Inside the refrig section at the top about 2" in from each side in the back , there are "D" slots to put a finger in , and pull downward and foreward , to remove the control panel cover . Once removed , there is a 1/4" screw on each side holding the adjustment indicator panel on , 1 phillips screw behind both light bulbs , and 1 screw holding the complete panel to the rear wall .

Water at the bottom of the refrigerator side

Without knowing the model I assume you are talking about a SXS. If you have water on this side it may be coming from the water reservoir if you have a water dispenser on the freezer door. Some SXS refrigerators have a quick cool compartment and these usually have a small refrigerator coil that can build up with ice and if the drain is blocked water can run under the crispers.

You need to look inside the freezer at the rear wall cover and see if it is frosted over. If your refrigerator is not defrosting that can cause the refrigerator side and the freezer side also not to cool to the desired temp.

Two things can cause this:

1. Dirty coils.
2. Bad condensor fan motor (this cools the coils). The fan motor can be accessed from the back by removing the lower panel.

GE sxs defrost problem

How long does it take for the frost to build up, improper placement of the bi-metal will cause a defrost issue by not letting the heater stay on long enough.

Let me know how you make out.
