Tray washing the condenser side (out side ) whit a water hose and changing your home air filter
especially your condenser "(the part than looks like a radiator)"
if is real dirty it can't bread and cool down
the refrigerant causing a the refrigerant pressure to rice to unsafe levels and a safety pressure switch kill the compressor.
all other fans will work.
do not use a hi power pressure washer because it would bend the tiny aluminum strips and cause you more troubles.
if this don't work you are going to have to call a pro to take care of it.

I need to turn off my gas f/freezer. The water part doesn't work. I was told to turn off for 48 hrs.then will be ok. Is this true. Apparently the inside door has frozen.

Turning off the unit will thaw a frozen water line in 24 hours or less Turn it back on and if you get water flow, then turn your cold control to a warmer setting, if it still freezes up, replace the cold control.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

My whirlpool fridge is getting warmer

there is a dampener control that lets air over to ref section, put your hand at the area to see if air is coming over from freezer.
if not look in freezer in back to see if it is all frozen, if so call tech.
if not push light button in freezer side with door open and liston for fan if fan does not run that is your problem.

The freon is fully charged but the air keeps getting warmer until there is no longer any cold air. It still blows air but it's warm. Does this sound like the compressor is bad??

do you have to recharge it after it starts blown warm if so its just got a leak and leaking all your freon out if its holding all freon then compressor must be bad

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,
This certainly sounds like a low system coolant level issue. Have someone check the system pressures. Low side should usually be 65 to 70 unit running. High side will vary with outside temps any where from 135 - 170. If you do not have good low side pressures it will affect the high side pressures also. This is really the only way your going to sort this one out.

Look around the evaporator and the condenser for any signs of OIL or dark spots caused by oil. That is usually an indication of a system coolant leak.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

My westinghouse fr/frz has been gradually getting warmer. The meat has defrosted in the freezer and there is no cold air in the fridge. I can hear a noise behind the appliance. Could it be the fan?

try to check your evaporator fan inside the cabinet if working together the condenser fan if working maybe compressor trip off conduct cleaning of yuor condenser if dusty adjust thermostat setting to coolest. maybe your fan hits some parts check it or apply lubricants on bearings.
