Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

Whirlpool Gold refrigerator (model #GB2FHDXWS03) temperature control panel flashes zero's - fridge and freezer don't cool. Can unplug/plug back in and appliance works for couple minutes, then stops.

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator(GB2FHDXWS03) that has started blinking zero (0) on the inside temperature panel inside the fridge. Neither the fridge or bottom freezer is cooling. I can disconnect power and then when plugging back in, the fridge and freezer start cooling, but only for a minute or two and then the fan shuts off. The temperature control panel and lights still operate, but the appliance cooling and noise shut off. Any suggestions? Thanks.

SOURCE: "Cool" mode shuts off

An E1 error is automatically generated after the AC runs for so many hours to remind you to clean the filter. The owners manual says to clean the filter and unplug the unit, then plug unit back in and code will be reset. However, a User review stated that his code was not reset until he followed a fairly simple routine. "Unplug the unit. Hold down the power button and plug back in. Wait to hear a "beep" and then unplug it again. Plug unit in again and it should restart without E1 code."

SOURCE: LG fridge suddenly stopped cooling.

If the fan inside the freezer is running and the compressor behind the fridge is running and is hot to touch, you have a gas problem or the compressor is inefficient. This can only be confirmed by connecting refrigeration gauges to the gas system and should only be performed by a fridge tech.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

SOURCE: GE PCG23NHMF side by side fridge freezer - stopped cooling

Although this machine is supposed to be frost-free (i.e. automatic defrost), there was a build up of frost. We manually defrosted the machine, then restarted it - the noise has stopped and the freezer and fridge are now working. However, this may be a temporary solution.

Hello, We have a Whirlpool Gold bottom freezer


I don't know about Whirlpool refrigerator freezers, but my Amana has a temperature control in the freezer that regulates the overall cooling, and then the control in the refrigerator compartment controls how much of the total cooling is sent to the refrigerator section. My advice would be to lower the temperature setting of the freezer, and see if the temperature lowers in the refrigerator as well. Also, you can go to the Whirlpool website and they can help you further.

Check to see if the sensor in the freezer compartment is encased in ice. If so, do a complete defrost and restart the unit. Another possibility is a bad thermostat and/or sensor.

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling after storm


Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

Cold air not getting from Freezer to Fridge


I actually know nothing about refrigerators, but was able to fix the same exact problem where cold air was not getting to the fridge side of the side by side. The freezer was working just fine. I unplugged the fridge and freezer and tore all the shelving out to get behind a panel in the back of the inside of the freezer. There is a pass-through between the freezer and the refrigerator at the top back of the freezer on the side-by-side refrigerator. The passthrough was totally frozen over and blocking air from passing through and cooling the refrigerator side. I let it all de-thaw and then was able to pull the chunks of ice out, and all seems to be working great now. Be careful getting the ice chunks out as there are some controls there - it's probably best to just let it all thaw and melt by itself - which wouldn't require tearing all the shelving out. One could simply let the freezer dethaw for a day and then plug back in and both sides should work just fine.
