Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

Open Question

Whirlpool model ED25DQ side by side

My refrigerator is not staying as cold as it used to. No noises or anything. It was purchased brand new the end of 1994 so it is getting old now. Had to turn the level up to max and temp is between 40 & 50 degrees won't go any cooler. Does it need more freeon in it? If so where can one find it? Also could it be the thermostat going out maybe? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks chuck99troop for your suggestions, cleaned the coils really good and I also checked the freezer and no ice build up. Frig is now at about 36 degrees.

    there are alot of causes for this promblem, less start with first cleaning the coils under the front behind the kick plate, take off the back cover and clean this area too. than check midway to lower bottom inside back of freeze wall, you are checking for frost build up. witch is a defrost problem.

.. Hi,, I have the same altho my guage says 39- 40 deg. but when I open the door condensation attacks and the coolness drops very very quickly... so I had a reply to that and he said put hand up to top left vent on fridge side see if blower is blowing ( mine had a lil ice up right there),, if its not see if you can budge the vent inside... I used a chopstick and a lil fiddling and the blower worked better but didnt take the icing away who knows maybe it will help your situation!

SOURCE: Loud clanking & rattling when fan stops

I have ran into this many times in the past. I'm 99% sure of what it is but try this. Check the compressor mounts and make sure it's seated firmly on the rubber feet. It might have gotten out of place when you moved it. This is the 1% that it could be. Now for the 99%. What I'm 99% sure you have is a compressor that has either a weak spring or broken spring inside. But you in luck, there are more than one and it will run fine with one bad. You can find diagrams of the inside of these type compressors on the web. There is nothing you can do to fix this due to it being a factory sealed compressor. It will most likely run for a long time, it's just noisy.
Please rate this solution if helpful. Thanks

SOURCE: refrigerator too warm on coldest setting

Sounds like an air circulation issue. There has to be a in and an out pathway. Check the ducts between the frig and freezer.

Whirlpool ed25dq Not Cooling


Unplug unit from the wall, remover the start relay from the compressor and shake it. If its solid possible bad compressor, if it sounds loose (broken part) then most likely bad relay. Verify your model number as you are missing some letters.

Good Luck

Loud clanging when it stops running model # ED25DQ

When the motor inside the compressor stops, the internal springs absorb the momentum. If an internal spring breaks or (more likely) gets weak, it may allow the motor to bang against the outer case of the compressor. The refrigerator will most likely work many more years this way, but the only way to stop that noise would be to replace the compressor, which is cost prohibitive. If you can't live with the noise, buy a new energy efficeint refrigerator and recycle the old one or use it in the basement or give it away. PS. If you give nearly any refrigerator compressor, even a new unused one, a shake, you will hear it knock against it's outer case.

Refrigerator door won't stay closed

Pull on the gaskets some times they are broken and will take up moore room that when correctly aligned. especially on the side of the door where the hinges are. Inspect thehinges also see of brackets are loose. If the gasket is bunched up on the hinge side try duct taping them down and retry the door. If this corrects problem replace door gaskets. If a plastic grommet is missing in the door it will nolt align correctly and you will be able to pick up on the outer corner of the door and it will wobel and be loose on the hinge. ReplACE THE GROMETS and retest and align as nessary.

What if there are no reviews??? Kenmore 57906 side by side

I'm not sure where you can go for reviews so I will give my own.  I work on all brands of refrigerators and this one is a great model.  It is made by Whirlpool who in my opinion make the best refrigerators.  Whirlpool uses the best quality compressor as well as other parts.  Most models have what would be considered a "common problem" and this one doesn't have any that I can think of.  The brands I would stay away from are Samsung and LG.  Whirlpool now owns Maytag, Amana, Kitchenaid, & Jenn-air and they can do this because they make great products.  You might look for reviews on Whirlpool if your not having luck finding anything on this particular model.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.
