    Thanks -- it's 10 years old -- would you say it's worth fixing or is this just the beginning of more problems?

    Thanks for all your insight. I discovered the main temp control had been turned down (duh!) and when it was reset all functioned as it should. I thank you again for your time and expertise!

Depending on age of unit. Sounds like a fan motor or defrost heaters witch can cost up to 300 to 400 to fix depending on the heaters or motor. Ask for free estimate before you commit to fix. Rus

    Most of the time when fix a defrost problem it stays fixed. Refrigerant system problems or compressor. Do not work out well. 10 years old is not old for refrigerator. But if you have it repaired for 3 to 4 hundred. I would buy the new one. My friend has a Hotpoint and he had the defrost heaters replaced. The part alone was 290.00 plus service. The next year the compressor went out and he had to buy a new fridge. Rus

Freezer side will not cool below 18 degrees. The fridge side is cooling at the set 37 degrees. What could be the problem as to the freezer not cooling to 0 degrees?

Whirlpool 6 sense model WSC5513- A+ X side by side, without ice or water dispenser. Refrigerator part not cooling properly. Temperature setting is -18 degrees Celsius for the freezer and 2 degrees...


The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.
