SOURCE: freezer cold but not fridge

too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

SOURCE: freezer to cold refrigerator not cold enough

sounds like your defrost timer is not working properly . Most fridge/freezers the fridge gets cooled from the cool air from the freezer . But when the defrost timer is not working properly the section between the fridge and freezer freezes up and hence doesnt allow the flow of cool air into the fridge. The defrost timer can be easily replaced.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore coldspot side by side- not cooling properly

Setting it to 5 is what the manufacturer recommends. If you set it to 1 and the frig is still not cold, then you probably have a faulty cold control (thermostat)

SOURCE: Whirlpool Top-Mount Refrigerator Freezer warm, cracking noise

8yr old? Buy a new one. The cracking sound is from expansion and contraction of the cabinet and ice cooling or defrosting. It can be as simple as a bit of a top up of refrigerant, but can also be that your compressor has worn down the valve plates and therefore is not producing sufficient pressure throught the system.

Refrigerator and freezer not coming up to temperature. replaced start device on compressor what else could be the issue


Some of these brand friges have a tendency to not defrost the freezer side properly. Ice builds up behind the freezer panel thus reducing air flow to the frig side. Having replaced all parts repeatedly on my WP frig, actually two of them, and losing food repeatedly, a WP repair guy said it was unrepairable. WP is crap. Their design is crap. Many side by sides are littered with cooling problems. The defroster coil, defrost sensor, and thermostat just dont work properly. In the end, I bought a diff. brand and will never buy wp again. Keep in mind how many brands are sister brands to wp and avoid them too.

Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

Vegetable bin keep freezing food. Model # ED2CHOXKQ05


Hello,
That can be the result of a couple things. Check to see if you hear the fan running in the freezer side? If not, since cold air falls, the cold air could be migrating from the freezer into the frig bottom section through the air duct hole in the back of the frig behind the crisper drawers. If the fan is running the check the air damper in the top left of the frig section. If the frig side is cold enough you should not feel air blowing through. Air flow is only very slight. You will have to remove some plastic cover or duct piece to see if it is closing. If the air damper seems to be working properly, you may have a refrigeration problem indicated by frost build up on the lower part of the freezer back wall. You may want to call in a pro at that point. Hope this helps point you in the right direction. Good Luck

Whirlpool frig. Freezer warm, frig seems ok.


Since the temperature is already 40°, the cold control is satisfied and will not run. Thus the freezer will warm up to 40°.

I have a whirlpool frig for about 5 years now and as of the last week the freezer is icing up on the left side where the door opens and the refrigerator part doesn't get that cold even with the controls...


Check the following: is the defrost timer cycling. If it is is the heater working, located behind the freezer back panel, defrosts the Evaporator coil that makes cold.

Not keeping cold both frig and freezer side.


First you need to check if the compressor is working properly.
Remove the rear panel and look for a cylinder with bunch of copper lines going in and out. feel those copper lines one of them should be warm and the other should be cold. Also you should hear the compressor working (pretty noisy) when the temperature in the freezer is not cold enough. If the lines are about same temperature and the compressor does not seem to work, the first place to check is the starter relay. Often the relay breaks. The part is WHIRLPOOL 2188830 2220475 RELAY. I found one on ebay.

Good luck
