Whirlpool side-by-side fridge/freezer continuous operation

My Whirlpool american side by side fridge/freezer has recently developed a problem where it seems that the compressor is constantly working. I have checked that the contents aren't blocking any vents, and the control/display panel is not showing any alarms. have tried putting it in standby and then back on, and also unplugging and plugging back in, but no difference.

Admiral american fridge freezer constantly blowing cold air into fridge compartment.


Changing the freezer settings won't really make a difference because regardless its still going to be freezing. The way the machine works is the freezer cools the fridge, and there should be a control in the fridge that operates the baffles in the airway between the freezer and fridge and reduces the amount of air that enters into the fresh food section.

My whirpool 6th sense american fridge freezer has stoped making ice? The water is still live, th eonly problem appears to be the level control arm which is in the up position and want move?


Be very careful, when the ice maker malfunctions, many things can be the culprit. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

WHIRLPOOL AMERICAN SIDE BY SIDE FRIDGE /FREEZER


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.

Whirlpool American Fridge Freezer


Make sure that the water filter is the right one and that it is pushed all the way in. If that is correct than There should be two solenoids located behind the fridge at the bottom one is for your ice and one for water. Unplug unit and test the water solenoid with an ohm meter across the two terminals if it ohms out or beeps than your solenoid is bad.

Have a whirlpool side by side american fridge freezer,,


If the fan in the freezer is working.
You can hear this fan running when you open the freezer. Then I think the noise you hear is the fan hitting an ice build up.

This is a failure of the defrost system.
