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: White Westinghouse upright freezer not cold enough.

Coils are probably underneath. remove the grille at the front (usually you just rotate it down to pull off) and then vaccum inside with a wand. If there aren't any coils there either, pull the machine out from the wall, and remove the lower panel from the back side. Inside you should find a fan next to a coil. Make sure that fan is working, and if it isn't make sure it is getting power.

Vacuum out as good as you can, and if you can use compressed air to blow it clean, even better (vacuum first because it will kick out a lot of dust).

If vacuuming the coils doesn't work, then you probably have a freon leakage problem, in which case it is probably not worth the cost of repair.

SOURCE: Red alarm light is on on Westinghouse upright freezer

Most probably during transportation either the coolant(previously freon gas) may have leaked out so the pressure on the cooling pipeline causing the red alarm because the compressor will overheat if the fridge is kept running at very cold thermostat readings and no effect of cooling the fridge will ultimately result in the compressor getting burnt. However fist have look at thermostat setting knob which could have loosened during transportation and just pushed into the spindle without knowing the correct angle, thus even though it looks as if on high cool but could also be the lowest setting..........sodeep

if the back wall of the freezer is iced up the problem is most likely the defrost thermostat.

SOURCE: Fridge too cold!

don't forget that just turning down your fridge temp dose not mean your problem might be over yet. the freezer setting may also be too high & that will affect your fridge temp as well. i set both my control settings to around 50% of what is on the scale & that works perfect for my 7 yr old fridge. also, very important, is make sure the freezer portion is going through it's full defrost cycles, or it will freeze the upper portion inside the fridge. you should not have any frost build up in your fridge, nor should you have any in your freezer. that's why they call them FROST FREE. try the slow temp decrease over a period of a few days & hopefully that will work for you. good luck.

I have a Westinghouse freestyle fridge and it is collecting up to 500 ml water underneath the crisper bins each day.


remove crisper bins and look for the drain tube . it must be clogged . as water is supposed to drain to the evaporation tray under the fridge .

Westinghouse RJ275M 194l fridge with top 81l freezer doesn't keep the fridge cold anymore. Freezer is fine. is it the thermostat?


If the upper compartment, the freezer part is open on the ends and the rest of the refrigerator is cold enough, that can't be fixed. If the the box is closed on the ends seperate, check the flow control of air if it has one, check the thermostat and set it till things nearly freeze in the lower non frozen section. If all this doesn't work and you can't keep the ice cream turning to milk, gotta get a new refrigerator.

Water line for ice maker/cold water leaking underneath


Check your connection at the bottom of the freezer door, behind the kick plate. Also pull out your crisper drawers and check the cold water reservior. If this only leaks when the water dispenser is pressed I would try to track the line from the bottom of the freezer door back to where it goes into the refrigerator (behind the crispers) to the cold water reservior.
If you absolutely have to lay this fridge down lay it on it's BACK only. Also be sure to let it stand upright for at least a half an hour before you start it back up.
Good luck with this!!

Salad in drawer is freezing


Good day,
One user claims that the return air vents or vent located at the bottom rear of the fresh food compartment, have collected enough junk to block the cold air from returning to the freezer compartment. You can clean them out but I cannot verify that solution.

The crispers are located in the coldest part of the fresh food compartment.
This problem can occur when the machine gets light usage especially in colder weather, when the machine running time drops and the air in the fresh food stratifies, causing to cold air to pool in the bottom.

Normal may no longer be normal. Controls by their design will tend to run colder as they age. You might try tweaking the control warmer.
Patience and time are the most important tool you have to work with in dealing with this issue.

Crisper door/water line freeze problem


mar...you're box is set too cold. Use -17 C/38 F on the freezer side which is about 38F/4C on the fridge side. Use an outdoor thermometer and let it sit closed for at least a few hours. Adjust accordingly and this will work out. One adjustment is often the cold vents from the freezer into the fridge. If set too wide, too much cold air gets into the crisper and water lines.
