Re: refrigerator not cooling

Don't try putting in freon, you will need a technician to physically go and look at it.

It require tools and skill. A refrigerator needs to be vacuum to remove any moisture and then charge with freon.

Refrigerator running but not cooling

If everything seems to be running as it should but it is not cooling, there is probably a problem with the freon or the compressor motor. it is possibly that the system has leaked freon, or the motor that pumps it has died.

However, if neither of these is the case. Sometimes turning the refrigerator upside-down and running it for a while (half an hour probably) and then turning it right side up again can get the freon flowing properly.

If that does not fix it then it is probably not worth fixing unless it is under warranty.

Whirlpool refrigerator model # GS5SHAXSLOO: Freezer works fine. Cool air not getting to the refrigerator area. Evaporator fan is working properly.

Hello there,

When your refrigerator tends to be running perfectly fine, but your fridge or freezer compartments are not cooling, then it means there is a problem somewhere inside the unit.

The problem could be caused by either a blocked condenser coil, or no more freon gas in the refrigerator. You need to clean out the condenser coils then refill the freon gas and your refrigerator will be in good condition once again.

Ensure your thermostat is functioning properly also.

Hope this helped you solved the problem.

My Whirlpool ET8WTKXKT0 doesn't cooling down. The fan is working, but the compressor like dead. What I have to check? Thanks. Victor

Its the problem with compressor,The problem is weak compressor.The refrigerant ( R12) in the compressor is got low.The compressor is weak.The compressor needs to be replaced.-------------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located.------------ But as you mentioned that freezer not cooling this indicates problem with compressor.When compressor cools the freezer section then fridge section gets cold.If freezer section is not getting properly cold then fridge section will not cool properly/.So the problem relates to compressor.---------- In the compressor there is a refrigerant called FREON.With the help of this Freon the compressor cools the freezer section.Freon is a gaseous type cooling agent.The compressor will stop cooling when coolant gets leaked from its chamber.--------- Again recharging the Freon is possible, but the cost for that recharging is approx the cost of new compressor.So its always advisable to get compressor replaced.Because new compressor has warranty for few years.------------------ You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Not cooling

My friend this problem is due to filter who have to be replaced but it cost so much because the technician have to recover the freon , remove the filter , put in a new one, make the vacuum ,charge.
But in mean time try this :
unplg the freezer, clean the backside, you can also use , the vacuum cleaner but not water. put 1 foot distance between the freezer and the wall , wait 15 mins and plug again. If it works the first solution will not be done.

Refrigerator box is cool. At temp of approximately 42 degrees. Freezer does not function. Cooling fan is constantly running.

sounds like you have a freon leak and need a recharge. honestly if it has some age on it, best to buy a new one, over the last few years std freon has changed

Not cooling

1. Is compressor running? -> If not, check power supply.
If it's running, than most probably freon (refrigerant gas) escaped and fridge has to be recharged. Anyway, more info needed. There could be a lot of reasons.
