Whirlpool fridge WRID41TS... freezer works fine.. I have already defrosted freezer. It was all iced up between freezer to fridge.. I'm after a part number or help on what to replace.. model number

One of three possibilities. The defrost heater element is faulty. The defrost timer is stuck and no longer cycling. The defrost thermostat is faulty. The heater element can be checked with an ohm meter. The defrost timer can be monitored over 15 minutes or less to verify movement. The defrost snap thermostat can be sprayed with freeze spray and checked for change of state when super cold around 30 f. Remove power when troubleshooting. Always wait for 5 minutes befor reconnecting power to allow for pressure to balance in compressor. This will keep you from destroyng the compressor. Best of luck to ya!!

Bottom freezer door stuck closed due to food blocking. How can I get door open? Whirlpool Gold Model GX5FHDXVQ01

Hi Pat, that's a tough situation. Are you able to get the door open at all to slip something long through like a piece of wood to maneuver stuff around in the freezer?
If you can't, maybe turn down your freezer to start a defrost, or do a complete defrost.

My whirlpool refrigerator freezer section around the blower fan is frosting up I changed the defrost heater and it still the same model number wrf560seym00. What next to try.

You may have an air leak around the door seal or the ice chute door is stuck slightly open causing compressor to run all the time as moisture from outside fridge to collect on fan shroud and evaporator. Are you defrosting normally or temperature rising inside fridge?

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator gb2fhdxwq01 and the defrost doesn't work, what can I do?

Fridge freezing up- and no fan or air circulation:

AT TIMES The fan usually stops working AND CAN MAKE FUNNY NPOISES AS WELL due to ice obstruction when the defrost terminator has gone out and u get ice build up? u can check the terminator with a multi meter for continuity but do not check at room temperature. stick the terminator in cup of ice water for 20 minutes then check it for continuity, should be closed when cold and open at room temperature.
May also need to check the defrost timer, The defrost timer is usually found behind the front grill "toe kick" of the refrigerator. Or in the fridge compartment near middle top section.
u can get by and test manually by placing a small screw driver into the tiny slot or hole underneath the timer and turn slowly clockwise till u hear 1 click. this will engage ur defrost cycle in about 15 minutes u should be able to come back and feel the heat in freezer as it melts the ice providing ur terminator is not bad?
Another way to test it is with a multi meter. Remove timer it from fridge and you will see 4 prongs numbered 2,1,4,3 in that order. Place ur meter prong on prong 1 & 3 (if your fridge has a capacitor wired in series with the windings, then u check for micro fares rather than OHMS) If u cannot confirm this test, still try the next.
Take ur meter prong and connect to prong 1 & 4, it should read resistance or ohms ( closed) now remove prongs and place on prong 1 & 2, this should now read infinity or open (no ohms) now take a small screwdriver place it in the tiny hole or slot under the timer. Turn it clockwise slowly till u hear 1 click. Now ur 1& 2 should read closed ( showing ohms or resistance) now place meter prongs on 1 & 4 and you it should now show open ( or no resistance - no ohms) this is how u know ur timer is good, Remember when testing for ohms ADJUST meter to use a high ohms rating in the thousands as the resistance is very high in OHMS. And adjusting to low ohms rating may give a false reading or not show the proper resistance..

Another item to check with a meter is the heating element itself. Located under the evaporator coils. It should show continuity or resistance OHMS WHEN TESTED AT BOTH ENDS OF THE PRONGS .

Lastly check the cold control thermostat with a meter for both OHMS and volts ( VOLTS is a live test with fridge plugged in so be careful) It must show 110 volts. An open or thermostat that reads infinity will not allow the proper cooling and defrosting cycles to operate and may in fact stop anything from happening as if there is no power to the unit?

ALSO CHECK THE AIR FLOW VENT SYSTEM and THERMISTORS At times it can get stuck to far closed or open. Some units feature a digital electric adjusting vent system while others are manually set. Check for any ice build up or other obstruction in the vent damper, see if u can manually open or close it. Some times when u have the settings set to the highest it closes off one area while allowing to much cold air flow to the other area!
THERMISTORS in the freezer and fridge section for continuity OHMS and for amount of OHMS current being put out. In most models around 1300 ( give or take 150 ohms) ohms is required

God is so good: so this is why I give free advice so please thank him not me.

The refrigerator won't turn on when I plug it in. Any idea what the problem could be?

Defrost timer could be in defrost cycle and stuck. You may have to replace it. if you have no light, no compressor noise and no fan running inside, it is a defrost timer, bad plug or no power.

Whirlpool model ed5fhgxkq03 side by side. Lights

check your temp controll to make sure it isnt broken or open circuit also your defrost timer could be stuck in defrost! next check your compressor for running and see if it is hot!! or just warm? if it is just warm and cycling /running then your low on freon due to a internal leak

Everything has defrosted the lights are still on. and there is no no noise coming from the back of it now.

If this is a self defrosting unit, the defrost timer may be stuck in the defrost cycle. Or perhaps the cold control went bad, or even the compressor or starting relay burned out.
