Whirlpool upright frost free freezer

I purchased this model with serial #EWM3129639080303 in 2003. It has not worked correctly since. The problem seems to be that it does not freeze properly. It was originally freezing, then things started thawing. Under warrenty the seal for the door was replaced. Next the compressor was replaced. Then it only froze at the bottom where it was draining from the panels inside of the freezer. When it was thawing from the frost free hose. The repair man then replaced a small hose that had a bend or something wrong with it. Now it drains out but doesn't get below 40 degrees so it doesn't freeze. It's no longer in warrenty, so I paid for that. All of this was done under the advice of a Whirlpool tech service. It was seen by another repair man this week and he said beside the compressor over charging he could not find any reason for it not to freeze. He said that should not keep it from over freezing. Your HELP is NEEDED, Karen Russell

    I have a Whirpool upright with the same problem! It freezes at the bottom, but everything in the top thawed. The compressor and defroster coils are running, but the fan at the top just hums. This unit has not worked right since I bought it...brand new. The upright matching frig had the same problems and we had a tech out here 5 times before we finally got it right.

    Now the warranty has run out.

Over charging can certainly keep it from freezing depending on the pressures how much it is overcharged the sealed systems on whirlpools have a five year warranty with your history id call whirlpool cust relations and discuss this problem with them they will help not customer assistance cust relations they are different talk highly of their product and tell them you think you just got a lemon thats all and it hasn't ever worked right now Whirlpool cares about their customers most people believe that the factories just build things to last till the warranty runs out that's not true they want you happy with their product on average one unhappy customer will tell 20 people and that's bad for business they would be happy if you never had a problem with their stuff so give them a call tell your mom had Whirlpool your granny had whirlpool you got your whole kitchen whirlpool this is the first Whirlpool you've had a problem with so you think it just must be a bad unit let me know what they tell you now that's customer relations you want to call ok

Orange light


Good Morning Raj, thank you for your post!

Are you referring to the orange light on the freezer is not working or the freezer itself is not running? May I have the model number? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located inside the cabinet, on the left side wall. With this information I can better address the issue at hand.

Taking out trays for cleaning


Usually the holes are deeper than they appear in the side walls. Lift the shelves just a hair and then push them left...the right side should now be outside the hole and able to be moved upward until left side clears.

Reverse this process to reinsert. Good Luck.

Top & middle shelves COVERED with frost/ice, not middle


That is normal. The refrigerant runs through those shelves. They are the evaporator side of the unit.That is where the freezing effect comes from.
Check door seals for leaking air.
Keep door openings to a minimum.
Get in there and get out.
Those things will help prolong frost/ice buildup.
