My Whrilpool 3 Door Protton refrigerator was found cooling only freezer compartment, not refrigerated compartment. Local mechanic told that it is a defrost problem and replaced two bi-metal thermostat


this seems to be a major issue with whirlpool and kitchenaid multiple door refrigerators. The defrost timer device on the compressor does not function properly or fails and the cooling coils freeze up. Check the little fan that pulls air through the freezer coils to make sure it is running (that cools the refridg) if not running then it is bad and causing problem. Otherwise you have another bad defrost relay on the compressor. It's easy to change and cost about $25 at the parts store. I just defrost mine every six months or so since none of the ones I tried work very well. Its just a bad design that is still propagating in whirlpool devices.

My freezer is frosting up on the back wall and sometimes makes a clicking noise. It also takes about 4 hours to freeze the water in my ice cube trays. What is the problem and any suggestions how to fix it?


You could very well have a defrost issue at the evaporator coil. Every evap coil, which is located in freezer section, will eventually accumalate ice by virtue of moisture hitting a -5 degree coil. The point though is that 2 to 3 times a day the freezer should cycle into a 10 to 20 minute defrost. There are three components to the defrost cycle... the defrost control (which can either be a timer, or a circuit board), a defrost heater, and a defrost sensor. Some of the Whirlpools had defrost sensor problems that were built between 2000 and 2008.

In all honesty, unless you feel comfortable removing the back interior panel in the freezer, then I suggest calling a professional

Icemaker not working


Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.
