Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

The refridgerator door of my Whirlpool side by side refridgerator/freezer is not closing properly. I checked for any obstructions including possible deterioration of the magnetic strips. It acts like the door may some how be sprung. It feels like resistance when I try to get it to close, but no obstructions. Is it possible to replace fittings or a sprung door?

Look closly at bottom of door there is a metal door stop, screwed to bottom of door, that prevents door from opein too far. Well when the door is forced open too far the door stopbends sdn then actually prevents door from closing all the way, you see it hitting the hinge(if indeed this is your issue), to repair it either simply bend it back staight witha pair of pliers, or what i sometimes do is switch the refrig and freezer door stops.They are identical, but only require the use of one side, (1 stop will do either door just depends on position as to how it operates)

Why on a whirlpool gold double door refrigerator


That's an easy one, the draw is not in correctly, preventing the door to close properly. Clean up the mess then work with the draw until it seats properly, then double check that the door seals closes right.

Every time I close the refridgerator side the freeze side opens, how do I fix it.


Hello ttd1977 - Often when one door is closed and the other opens, it is because either the hinges are damaged or the refrigerator has a poor door sealed. Trying checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and the door. Now close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocking by anything stopping it from closing. If the gasket is not sealing properly, it may possibly near replacing. Since there are cost differences in parts it is always a good idea to have a certified technician properly diagnosis your appliance. Thanks for allowing me to help you.

Kenmore coldspot 106 refridgerator not cold


The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. These are basic possibilities which first need to be checked. But if these possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.

Refridgerator door sags


Its a two person job. One person has to looses up the two hidges holding the door just slightly while the other person holds the door in place. Once in place tighten the screw/bolts for the hidges back up and check. If not aligned, redo it again until it is aligned and seals properly..
Good Luck!

I have a whirlpool side by side fidge. My freezer is not working but the refridgerator is working fine. Everything is melting in the freezer.


Three possibilities depending on the mode number you have. Most likely is the defrost control is defective. Then the other 2 possibilities are the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. Send your model number and I will be able to tell you just what you have. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refridgerator side not cold freezer side fine


Difficult to properly diagnois with such a brief description, but try the following as a good first step at correcting the problem. Reset the freezer and fridge thermostat settings at the factory default. Also, check the freezer section to make sure nothing is blocking the cold air supply vent into the fridge, do the same on the fridge side too.

Normally is the freezer is working fine, and the fridge is warm, it can be due to either a blockage of the cold air cross vent by items in either the freezer, fridge, or both, preventing proper cold air flow from the freezer into the fridge. Also, check to see if the cold air vent is not frozen or obstructed, with a fashlight (you;ll need to remove stuff from fridge and freezer to make this possible to check.

If the vent is not obstructed and you can clearly feel cold air passing from the freezer into the fridge, it is possible that the cold air vent control has ceased operating properly and needs to be replaced. Usually though this type of problem is caused by people over stuffing things into the freezer section and blocking the cold air cross over vent. Hope this helps.

Hmmmm, chunks? Are the doors properly aligned? Closing completely? dispenser chute door closed? if so may have frosted the airway to the refrigerator and blocked it. I would totally defrost it and check again.
