Question about Westinghouse Refrigerators

Open Question

I have bought a Westinghouse side by side fridge, Model # WSPE28V9GS4, Manufactured in Mexico in January 2009. Serial number is 90304748. The two digit temperature readout goes haywire, and does not remain at the set temp. It fluctuates from warmest (-14 C) for freezer to Hi, and like wise for the fridge section. In addition, an alarm started beeping, and there is no way on earth to know why or how to stop it. Can you help explain and how to remedey this fridge problem.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

SOURCE: WHIRLPOOL AMERICAN SIDE BY SIDE FRIDGE /FREEZER

I had probably the same problem. After a little discussion with the factory they sent a technician as a "Good Will Gesture." The technician told me it was the control board down by the compressor. I overheard a conversation between he and his central repair office that it was a common problem. The factory would not admit it. I have a feeling the electronic control board he replace (which would have cost several hundred bucks) was probably made in China. Now I'm having more problems with my Ohio made Whirlpool side-by-side. The freezer is working fine, the fridge is not very cold. By the way, the internal lights was one of the keys to the problems.

It won't be the defrost timer, unusual, it will be the defrost element inside the freezer section behind the back panel or a shorted defrost klixon.

SOURCE: Westinghouse Wse6100WA side by side Fridge-icing up/not cooling

This is a bad design flaw, the fridhe is cooled by fan forced air from the freazer. Two ducts vent into and out of the fridge fron the freezer and ice can block them up (which you can find if you take off all the plastic at the top and back of the fridge).
Hence, when they block up, the frindge does not cool, hence the thermostat tells the fridge to keep running which makes the freezer colder and colder, making the blockage worse.

You need to not only fully defrost the freezer (which can be done quicker by removing the plastic panel in the back of the freezer and using a hairdryer) BUT also fully dry the fridge before turning it back on.
To stop it happening again, avoid puting unvovered liquids or hot items in the fridge. Also avoid leaving the fridge and freezer doors open for long especially in humid conditions. As I said, it's a bad design.

I bought a Beko fridge in Dec 2010- model number LA120W 4.8 cf. I wondered if that model was included in the recent scare about faulty thermostats. C. Harrold


HIGHLY unlikely, since models affected were manufactured between 2000 and 2006.

First step is check the serial number (Usually a silver or white sticker 2 inches by 3 inches on the left inside wall of the fridge unit. The specifications are all writen horizontally, the serial number is written vertically), if it doesn't start 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05 or 06 Then you have no need to check any further.

If it DOES, or you want to make doub;y sure, please see the following:


POTENTIAL BEKO REFRIGERATOR FIRE RISK AND RECALL NOTICE

I would normally give a pointer to articles I have already posted this response on, but as this is such a potentially serious matter, I have posted my entire response here for you.



According to several sources I have checked, including most importantly, BEKO's own website, the MODEL numbers (not serial numbers) affected by the recall are as follows:

CDA543FX
CA5411FFS
CDA752FS
CDA645FW
CA5411FFW
CDA752FW
CDA647FS

CDA543FS
CSB4606FFSD
CDA751FX
CDA543FW
CSB4606FFW




The fridges affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006. After shipping and sitting around in shops, you can probably extend that margin to machines SOLD between 2000 and 2008. The first 2 digits of the serial numbers indicate the year of manufacture, so if your serial number doesn't start 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05 or 06 you don't even need to check.



If you go to the BEKO website, there is a link to check your serial number:

Apparently there is a problem with Beko refrigeration manufactured between 2000/2006. Please confirm model number in question.


From Beko:-

"The BEKO frost free fridge freezer models affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006. These have a serial number that begins with either 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05 or 06. and this information can be found on a label inside the fridge. Beko is making a free of charge modification to all affected models, this modification takes approximately 30mins.

Other Beko branded models and all Beko frost free fridge freezers manufactured after this date are unaffected.

Affected model numbers:

    • CA 5411 FFS/FFW/FFX
    • CA 7014 FFX
    • CA 7015 FFW/FFS/FFX
    • CDA 539 FS/FW/FX
    • CDA 543 FS/FW/FX
    • CDA 645 FW
    • CDA 647 FS/FW
    • CDA 648 FS/FW
    • CDA 653 FS/FW/FX
    • CDA 659 FS
    • CDA 751 FS/FX
    • CDA 752 FS/FW/FX
    • CS 460 FF/FFS/FFW/FFSD
    • CS 461 FFW/FFS
    • CSA 4706 FFX
    • CSB 4606 FFSD/FFS/FFW"

If you find that your model is listed above and is in the correct model year range then you need to click here for further guidance. There is also a freephone number, but it's swamped by callers. Even if you get through you will receive exactly the same advice as you would from the website links.

Our fridge freezer Model TDA531W bought 31/1/11 is housed in the garage, is it safe? Been listening to the Jeremy Vine show on radio this morning and we are alarmed that our fridge freezer may not be safe.


It's highly unlikely you have an issue since the units with the fault were manufactured between 2000 and 2006, in addition to which, your model number doesn't appear in the list of at risk units. That said, for your reassurance:
