Whirlpool top freezer 18c.ft w/ icemaker: freezer works fine. fridge does not cool below 56 degrees. vacuumed dust from bottom, turned entire unit off and restarted but still not working, in back of


i think you have to check to make sure that
the fan inside the freezer is cycling on.
it will be concealed of course but you should
be able to hear it. i replaced one once with
the same symptoms and that fixed fridge
portion of a 2002 or 3 whirlpool. make sure
to listen closely and not mistake it for the
stronger fan motor which operates in
conjunction with and nearby the compressor.

This is going to be a problem with either the thermostat control or the compressor relay from the freezer to frigde, either way, you will need to call a service tech.

Fridge freezer probs


From the sound of it I would looking at the evaporator fan in the freezer. This is what circulates air and actually cools the refrigerator as well as the freezer

Whirpool wgi fridge freezer, fridge not cooling?


Most frideges get all their cooling from the freezer. There will be a fan and duct in the back of the freezer that pushes cold air down into the fridge. If the duct is blocked with ice or the fan motor has quit. Your freezer will work fine but the fridge will barely cool at all. Check that the fan runs when the compressor is running, ( turn both temp knobs to the highest cooling and leave door open until comp. comes on). If the fan runs your duct is plugged. If not you need a new " Freezer Fan Motor". Most are simple to replace and cost around $100.00.

Bottom half of fridge and freezer are cold top half warm?


This sounds like an air flow issue, If your freezer fan is running still you may have a defrost problem starting in the freezer cooling coils. This will cause the cold from the freezer to back flow into the bottom of the fridge and only the lower half of the freezer to keep very cold.
Most likely culprit for defrost issues would be the terminating thermostat (inside freezer behind back wall and clips to top of coils).
Good luck and let me know if you need more help!

The bottom half of the fridge/freezer is cool, but not the top half. What's wrong . This is a side by side.


The evaporator fan inside the freezer usually behind the back panel circulates the cold air and blows it into the fridge. Make sure it's running when the compressor runs. And make sure the fan can blow the air into the fridge through the vent.

My amana bottom freezer won't cool both the fridge and freezer are warm


I just had the same problem with the same fridge. When I removed the inside panel in the freezer, I found that the cooling/circulation fan had fallen due to the mounting screws having rusted off. I removed the fan housing to get the screw ends out from the back side and remounted the fan with new screws. The fridge and freezer both work fine now and I'm assuming it will for many more years until it happens again.
