Whirlpool Estate series fridge/bottom freezer no longer gets cold

This is an older fridge, we bought it used and have had it for 20+ years with good service. However, for several days now it has not kept contents cold enough--milk clabbers within a few days, in the freezer ice cream is soft. We've cleaned the coils, of course, with little effect if any, and turned the thermostat further toward cold with no change. Suggestions?

How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Whirlpool estate, is no longer cold, for the freezer or icebox


hi,

pull it out and study the back of the fridge down where the cardboard cover is, ((careful of the water line)) sometimes the cardboard cover will come loose and get in the way of the small fan back there, if it does , it will do that, if thats not it, probably your best bet will be to call and have a guy come out and test it. craigslist has cheap side by side fridges, since theyre such a pain to replace..
good luck

Viking Pro VCBB36 -warming up + alarm


Over the past several years my heat alarm would come on, first time I called a PROFESSIONALLY, he told me to unplug for 24HOURS, than start it. The solution worked for two years, just happened again, unplugged it for 24 hours, and it seems fine. My guess it must need to defrost. Good luck!

Whirlpool fridge with top freezer.( no ice maker )


check if you have frost build up at the back side of the freezer section.

if you do, then it is a defrosting problem.

you could have a problem with the defrost timer, the defrost heater , or the bi-metal.

if there is no frost accumulation, that would be something more and you have to elaborate on what you observe with the unit to help me further troubleshoot your unit.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Fridge not getting cold


This is a frost free frige, so if you see frost, that is the problem. Check the defrost heater, defrost limit and defrost timer/board. You can get by for a while by manually defrosting the fridge. Turn it off, unload the food, and leave the freezer door open for 24-36 hours.
