I have Whirlpool fridge FF450 Elite. Though the fridge cooling is normal, after the night working find in the early morning all magic light flickering though the fridge compressor is working. The freezing...


seems to me by the frost that the inside fan is not blowing air across the cooling radiator (evaporator), due to ice build up impeding air flow or the fan motor stalls or not working a t all. Defrost timer should also be checked if the air flows thru inside the fridge.

Westinghouse freestyle fridge &freezer work but warm after being turned off fo 90 days


What happens in that 72 hours is the evaporator coil get's so much frost built up on it that the fan in the evap. freezer fan has no where to circulate the cold air (where the cold is produced). Basically you have a restriction between freez/fridg. sections you have defrost problem> It is one of three things d heater,d t stat, or your d timer.I need the model # to tell you what my sugestions would be and where to start.

refrigerators only have one cooling system and that is for the freezer. The fridge part is cooled by sending a portion of the air from the freezer to the fridge. your fridge thermostat controls a fan that turns on and off as needed. first step is to make sure this is working, and not stuck on. turn your fridge to a somewhat warm no and open the door for a few minutes to allow the cold air out then check and see see if it gets very cold again within say an hour. if it does your fan is always on and you need to repair it. if that is working then you have to play with both freezer and fridge settings. best thing is to get a cheap thermometer and check your freezer temp. it should be around 0 to -5f if it is colder than that frigid air blowing into your fridge too cool the whole area will freeze anything close to the vent. once you have your freezer set then start adjusting your fridge. personally I have mine set at 34f knowing that some things on the top shelf will freeze. but I like my cola's COLD. so I put things like butter that are harder to freeze at that level. but if you don't want anything to freeze then a temp of 37 -39f is correct for your fridge. so it comes down to freezer temp, the amount of time the fan is on, and proximity to the vent. good luck

The freezer works well but the fridge is not cooling.


Classic symptom of: the connection passageway between the freezer and the fridge compartment
has closed off - usually due to ice buildup - or something clogging/blocking the passageway.
Your Refrigerator works by releasing cold air into only the freezer, then this cold air passes thru
a passageway into the fridge compartment to cold (but not freeze) the fridge compartment contents.
If this passageway is blocked, then just the freezer works, and cold air never makes it into the
fridge compartment. In the old days, you'd be told to defrost your freezer, since the blockage
was ALWAYS caused by frost buildup. Today, we have frost-free freezers, and your freezer may
simply have too much stuff inside - there has to be some room to allow some air flow around
items in the freezer, and whichever item is blocking the air passage to the fridge compartment -
just move it away from the passageway opening.

My Westinghouse side by side frost free fridge freezer is freesing the food in the fridge and there is frost on the items in the freezer please help


Can be anything from a damper / cold control issue to a to cold freezer. As for the frost on the food items in the frzr. Most of the time it is normal, especially when the items are in bags or loosely wrapped. Air is the culpert,
air is a gas...at room temp you can't see it. As it cools it condenses to a liquid, as it gets colder it frosts to ice crystals. Vacuum pak or rap tight in plastic and then zip lock removing as much air as possible.

Fridge is 12 years old or so and freezer has been icing up. The fridge is now suffering from global warming and is near useless, being the same temp as the outside air (it's summer here in NZ, yipee!). But...


IF THE FREEZER HAS FROST AND ICE NO COLD AIR WILL BLOW TO THE REF SECTION, YOU MAY HAVE A DEFROST ISSUE. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR OVERNIGHT THEN TRY TOMAROW IF THIS WORKS IT WILL FROST UP AGAIN UNLESS YOU CAN LOCATE WITCH DEFROST PART IS BAD.AND REPLACE IT. HOPE THE SURF IS GOOD! ANYHOW

Westinghouse fridge: no cool air circulating inside


Art, I need to get a little more information from you. Does the condenser fan under the refrigerator seem to work and blowing warm air from below and or behind the refrigerator? The motor feeling warm is OK. Only when too hot to touch on top. Needs to cycle also. When you opened the freezer did you hear the fan blowing? Thanks, JT

Frost Free, freezer ok but fridge warm


If all else fails I would completely defrosted the unit.If there is any blockage this will open up all the tubes.Unplug it open the doors put pans of hot water in the freezer to speed up the process.
Make sure your fan is still working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refridgerater may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.
