Automatic Exterior Moisture control is getting too hot on 6ED250QXDWOO 2 door side by side Whirlpool Ref


If you live in a part of the country that experiences dry winter weather, this "mullion heater" is not needed. If you air condition your home in the summer, it is not needed either. It is normal for this heater too feel rather warm, but if the freezer section is not cold enough, it will be more noticeable.

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35

STOP PAYING FOR EXPENSIVE WATER FILTERS FOR YOUR REF. DO THIS====

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Side by side whirlpool frige, freezer works fine refrigerator section not cold enough?


Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

Thanks

Icemaker doesn't make solid cubes


The ref is not cold enough.Probably it needs super cleaning behind the panel at the back at the bottom where the fan is. Be sure to replace the back panel as it is essential to the operation of the refrig'
Also remove the front bottm plastic grate and get on the floor and clean there also.

Fridge part not working on Whirlpool Arc 7050 Fridge Freezer


If this is correct:

1. No ice build up on back of freezer wall.
2. Fan in freezer is working.
3. Items in freezer are frozen, ice cream is a good test.

Then:
Why is the cold air in the freezer not getting over to the Ref. side?

1. There is a channel (tunnel) from the freezer to the Ref, side and there is a door which regulates how much cold air from the freezer goes through to the Ref. side.

2. The control panel may have it labeled as "Freezer" setting, from cold to coldest. The coldest setting means the door is almost closed and will keep most of the cold air in the freezer.

3. Since your control panel is not working then this door must be almost closed keeping all or most of the cold air in the freezer.

Any service tech should be able to check the control panel and find the problem.

Freezer compartment of refrigerator not freezing


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
So, how can the Ref side be cold and the freezer side not freezing?

1. Coolant leak. There is enough coolant to keep the Ref side cool but not enough to freeze on the freezer side.

2. Defrost system failure. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice and it's just a matter of time when the Ref side won't cool either. The back wall in the freezer will be covered with ice/frost
