By "not working", do you mean that the compressor is not running, or that the temperatures in the fresh food compartment and freezer compartment are not getting properly chilly.

How do you make a freezer frost free?


Frost free means that the evaporator coil will not accumulate a thick layer of frost. It will not prevent frost from accumulating on the walls of the freezer. To slow down the amount of frost build up inside the freezer, do not keep the freezer door open for any longer than necessary. The freezer door seal may be defective. This would allow moisture in that would freeze on the inside walls. A heater with timed intervals to come on is one way for a frost free feature. But this will not work for frost build up on the inside walls of the freezer. It would only melt the frost and then it would refreeze again.

The leading cause of the refrig.not working while the freezer does is because the freezer is not automatically defrosting as its supposed to,do you see frost build up on the back wall inside the freezer?? if yes their is frost build up in=side of the freezer its not defrosting.

Hello, our freezer is working fine so far but the fridge is not.


The first thing you should be looking for is a frost or "snowy" build up on the back wall of the freezer. Assuming that there is a build up then you need to remove the back wall of the freezer. Gaining access to the defrost thermostat and defrost heater is a little difficult due to the frost build up. the defrost thermostat is attached to the evaporator coils to the right of the fan assembly. You need to check for continuity across the thermostat. The thermostat is the most likely cause.

Remove back wall from inside freezer and melt all frost with a hair blower. The most likely cause of the frost build up is a burnt out defost heater, second most likely cause is the defrost control. Can't give you part numbers because you don't list a model number or even a brand. Melting the frost and not fixing the underlying problem will get your refrig working for a week or so until the frost builds up again.

Fridge side not working freezer frost on back at first now not freezing hardly at all


If you still have the frost build up on the back wall of the freezer, your problem is in the defrost circuit. You'll find a bad heater, terminator or control.

Also verify operation of the evaporator (freezer) fan.

If the frost is on the back wall of the freezer then you most likely have a defrost problem or a bad evaporator fan motor.

Whirlpool top freezer problem


Check for frost build-up behind back wall in freezer. If there is a heavy frost build-up, it's not defrosting. This will restrict airflow to refigerator section and can stop fan. If fan is stuck again and it's not because of frost, replace evaporator fan motor.

Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.
