SOURCE: whirlpool gold side by side freezer not freezing but fridge is running

Your fan in the freezer is wearing out. When your food in the freezer is blocking the air, the motor is working too hard. After years of using, it needs to be replaced. Get a repair man in to replace with a new parts. My Fridge/Freezer was totally broken and I found this out because the ice was melting. It got fixed and now no problem.

SOURCE: uneven cooling in fridge and annooying alarm every 10 hours!

Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

I had probably the same problem. After a little discussion with the factory they sent a technician as a "Good Will Gesture." The technician told me it was the control board down by the compressor. I overheard a conversation between he and his central repair office that it was a common problem. The factory would not admit it. I have a feeling the electronic control board he replace (which would have cost several hundred bucks) was probably made in China. Now I'm having more problems with my Ohio made Whirlpool side-by-side. The freezer is working fine, the fridge is not very cold. By the way, the internal lights was one of the keys to the problems.

SOURCE: Freezer working fine, Fridge is freezing everything on low settin

THERMOSTAT ON 90% OF SIDE/SIDE REFRIGERATOR IS LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THE FRIG COMPARTMENT .YOU KNOW, THE ONE THAT HAS OFF ON IT AND USUALLY NUMBERS. YOU WILL HAVE TO DROP THE PANEL TO ACCESS THE THERMOSTAT. ALSO NOTE THAT AN INDICATION OF A STUCK THERMOSTAT IS WHEN THE COMPRESSOR RUNS AND RUNS AND DOESN'T SHUT OFF.ALSO CHECK FREEZER TEMP TO SEE IF IT IS BELOW 0 DEGREES THAT ALSO INDICATES STUCK THERMOSTAT.

Refrigerator side freezes


if the food in the fridge side is freezing it sounds like the damper door isn't closing,the way it works is cold air is produced in the freezer side,the evaporator fan blows the cold air from the freezer to the fridge side and it blows through the damper assy. if the damper door isn't closing youll have sub zero air constantly blowing into the fridge sidethe part number is 5304482075 but it's around 200 dollars.you can go here to sears and look up the parts or call a tech in to check it out

Hi i have model sb540w and the fridge doesnt get cold enough but the freezer is fine called an engenier and he did not understand wat the probs was as the fan works at the back.


Your unit has one condensor unit, so if the freezer side is freezing, then the problem has to be in the freezer section.

First check to make sure that the fan is operating in the unit. If it isn't then it is probably the fan, BUT maybe not bad so hold off replaceing it. If the fan is working then you probably, have a defrost problem - when the defrost assembly stops working ice build up behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment so the thermostat gets a false reading and won't send tell the fan to kick on to send cold air to the refrigerator section.

So you will need to take the food out of the freezer, remove the shelves, remove the inner rear panel in the freezer compartment and look for ice build up. If you find it, then you can either unplug and leave the door open to defrost or use a hair dryer to hurry the defrost up - DON'T USE HOT WATER!

Once defrosted, you can dry the unit out and then turn it back on, use your make and model number to order the defrost assembly, but you can use your refrigerator and freezer until it arrives.

We get clicking noises when water is dispensed. also the fridge compartment is not cold at all - the freezer is working (at the moment). model SB540W/SAL2027GBB. Service code 85951051500 / 110738001758....


the clicking sound is normal it sounds like valve operating or you may have the water pressure up to hgh for the unit. for your second problem is the fan operating inthe fridge this stops the cold air to transfer from the freezer, also check the operation of the damper this is the flap the controls the amount of air into the fridge this is uasualy controled by a by metalic thermostat or motor. thirdly which mostly common is the defrost heater is not working signs are frozer evaperator in freezer and air duct the checks are defrost timer, heater element terminatinion thermostat and someunits have thermofuses goodluck
