Fridge side works, but the freezer doesn't

My Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. on the freezer side is not working, I feel air barley blowing out of it and it's slightly warm. The fridge part is keeping items cold. I have checked the coils and they are pretty clean. Please help can not afford a repair man!

Hi, there is a common fault with these side by side models, the electronics fail in many ways. The first sign of failure is either due to the compressor not working or the 'evaporator' (the cold bit) ices up and air can't pass through it to cool the freezer and fridge.
You can buy a kit to repair the boards for about £30 on ebay
Look for Whirlpool repair
An engineer would charge £200 +
Hope this helps

I have a maytag msd2572vew side by side refrigerator. the freezer side works fine but fridge side does not get cold. the vents in the fridge feel like no air is blowing. anyone know what's wrong?


Hi,
You have a defrost problem and will need to thaw out your freezer to change the one of the bad parts and restore air flow. The other bad part is PCA (this is a control of defrost and compressor run). First bad part is a defrost thermostat link under bad and the other is the PCA which controls the defrost cycle. Unplug unit, de-ice the freezer and this will buy you time to get parts, I don't like the use of blow dryers but people use them in this case. Watch the heat, is can warp the plastic.
Good Luck

Freezer works, but has some ice forming and refrigerator not cooling.


The refrigerator half of a refrigerator/freezer does not produce any cold! The refrigerator is cooled by transferring air from the freezer to the fridge. The fridge temperature setting controls a flapper between the freezer and the fridge. There should be a fan which blows air from the freezer into the fridge (through the damper).
If the ice forming in the freezer is concealing the cooling coil and air can not move through the coils, then the overall result will be a warm freezer (even though there may be ice in one location) and a warmer yet fridge. This can be tested by unplugging the fridge and allowing a complete thaw. If the ice is the cause of the problem, then it should work for a short while until it freezes up improperly again
:o).

IN MOST CASES THERE IS A FAN THAT SENDS COLD AIR FROM THE FREEZER TO KEEP THE FRIDGE COLD. EITHER YOUR FAN MOTOR HAS GONE BAD OR YOUR THERMOSTAT IN YOUR FRIDGE IS BAD.

Is the vent on the side of the crisper suppose to blow out cool air?I have a whirpool side by side..8years old


No, that vent is for the return air going back to the freezer. The vent at the top is where the freezer fan blows air into the fridge.

Fridge freezer over heating and is not cooling fridge section


It is normal for the middle strip to be hot. Did you check the temp setting in the fridge section?
Also - you might check for blockage in the bottom. Excessive dirt/dog hair can block the air flow.
Good luck
