Open both doors and check to see if the center divide between the the freezer and fridge is warm/hot to touch. If so, you need a new cooling motor/fan. Motor should come with new fan and can be purchased for around $60. Pretty easy to change yourself. In cover on back/bottom of unit. Have exact model and changed that part 6 months ago.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. In a self-defrosting freezer, poor cooling often results from a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. To access these coils you need to remove panel inside the freezer. If there is any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, ceiling, or floor it’s sign of frost build-up and it means a problem with the self-defrosting system.

Freezers should self-defrost three to four times in 24 hours. In case a component in the self-defrosting system fails, the freezer continues to try to cool, instead. Eventually, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There is some cooling as the coils are frozen. But with no air flow over the coils, the cooling is quite limited and the freezer isn't cold as normally it should be.


To check the de frosting system problem, you need to remove all of the perishable food from the freezer, turn the thermostat to off, leave the door open for 24 to 48 hours to "manually" defrost the freezer. After the frost and ice build-up is completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If it is cooling properly, it indicates a problem with one of these components in the self-defrosting system:

  • The defrost timer – To test this, manually advance the defrost cycle. The unit should advance itself out of the defrost cycle in about 45 minutes.
  • The defrost thermostat – This allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on.
  • The defrost heater – You can test this for continuity using an electrical meter.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
Thanks
Rylee

Unplug your freezer. Move the fridge 1 foot from the wall. Wait 15 minutes and plug again . if it works good , ok . if not you will need to call the technician who will check the starting relay and the compressor

What is cubic feet in 11 feet by 21 feet


You cannot calculate cubic feet from only two measurements. Cubic feet is an area of volume, such as the inside area of a box. With only two measurements you get square feet, which is a measurement of area. A box 11 feet by 21 feet takes up an area of 231 square feet (11 times 21). If the box is 3 feet tall, then you can compute cubic feet since you take all three values and multiply them together. A box 11 feet by 21 feet by 3 feet would contain 693 cubic feet of space (11 times 21 times 3).

How to calculate cubic feet?


Multiply 21 inches by 14 inches by 10 inches to get 2940 cubic inches. There are 12 inches in a foot, so there are 12^3=1728 cubic inches in a cubic foot. Divide 2940 cubic inches by 1728 cubic inches per cubic foot to get about 1.7 cubic feet.

Alternatively, first convert all measurements to feet. 21 inches is 1 3/4 feet, 14 inches is 1 1/6 feet, 10 inches is 5/6 feet. Multiply them together to get 245/144 cubic feet, which again is about 1.7 cubic feet.

It's always nice when doing a problem two different ways gives the same answer.

Whirpool GS6SHAXLB03 Refrigerator or freezer do not cool.


This sounds like it's out of freon. Not just low but out. That clicking noise is a thermal overload shutting down the compressor. If you continue let it just click away it will burn this overload out and the compressor will have to be replaced. If the refrigerator just started doing this suddenly it could be that the compressor is locked up. If it has external capacitors either the start or run capacitor could be bad. If the capacitors are good then you could try a hard start kit to try to unlock the compressor.
