Ask the dealer, check the thermostat inside has not been turned up excessively also. check that the door/s are closing properly after it's been restocked etc'.

I just purchased a new Frididaire side by side. I've had it 4 days. It runs about 13 minutes and is off about 11 minutes. Is this normal? Seems like it shouldn't run so much.

For a new fridge, need more time to maintain the required temperature of the fridge and mainly the goods in it? So everything seems normal. The time will be reduced day by day since the goods will stay for longer time in and door opening will become less and less.

So don't worry everything seems fine.

Whirpool side by side refrigerator hot door gasket

Good day,
The first step is to clean the coils properly. Remove the back cover, and make sure the cooling fan is running. At this point, unplug the machine and with a wand and a push pull vaccuum blow the dirt out of the coils from back to front.

Yes , it's filthy and ugly, but the only proper way yo clean it.
Make sure the cover in the back is properly reinstalled. (See my tips). At the beginning, the divider will be fairly hot, but should slowly cool after enough running time to get the machine to it's normal temperature.

My whirpool oven is working but does not seem to be heating as it should I wonder if the fan is not working

magnetron do get week over time even more so if you do a lot of short time food reheat, the fan normally is used to cool the magnetron wave guide and if it stops working the over temp safety will trip and stop the magnetron from working

HI, I bought a new Whirlpool side by side and it seems to run 15 or so minutes and off for about 10 or son seems to run allot more than my old one did, can you tell me if this is normal, I may...

Good day,
That is close to being normal. New High effeciency machines are run with a much smaller unit, and as a result, will run more. However the net is it will use less electricity.
It's an added bonus, since the temperature balance between the 2 compartments can be controlled better with more running time.

Thank you for using FixYa

Loud buzzing noise with Whirpool microwave oven when it comes on. All lights, heating and fan seems to work but not sure why loud buzzing. What is the problem?

The loud buzzing you hear is the sound of the magnatron tube.That is what emits the microwave radiation and buzzing should be normal. The mag tube may be nearing its end at witch time you will hear no buzzing and hence no heating of foods. Replacement can be costly depending on the model so most people just opt for a new one. Hope this helps

Motor seems to run more frequently than it should

Check your model number again as I can not find that model number. Is it cooling normally? Possible that it is trying to keep the temps cooler because of many different possibility's. Let me know and I will try to find an answer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Conquest water filter in my whirpool side by side

yes it is. as long as there is still water coming out from the dispenser.

the red light only indicates that it is about time to replace the filter. could be 6 months old. this is controlled by time, so check your water pressure at the dispenser, if it is still strong, then you could still use it .

depending on your condition, some filters would be clogged already even if the light is still green and there is no more water coming out of your dispenser.

normal time to replace the filter is six months.

tnx 4 using fixya,
