Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

2 Answers

I bought a 9 nyr old top mount Whirlpool frig from a friend a few weeks ago. At first, it worked great, now the freezer is fine but the frig won't chill below 60 degrees. It has only one thermostat and we have triple checked to make sure all vents between freezer and frig are clear. They are both just about empty now, anyways.

If you have tried with the frig filled and it's the same then the thermostat is faulty.  It can't be fixed, replace it.

Water is slowly dripping from the top of Frig.


The water is coming from the defrost cycle in the top of unit . It drains down at the back of the light cover into a tube at the back. Get a phillips screwdriver and take it down to be sure tube is inserted properly. Get model number and go to.appliancepartspros.com to get a diagram.

Frig cools works great all day then trips the gfci


Hi Sturkle;
Does this happen say- every 6-8hrs? If so you may find the defrost element has a short, or defrost timer is faulty. Defrost element is located in the freezer compartment, Time located an back of fridge.. Use a qualified person when playing with electrics...Cheers

Freezer way too cold - ice cream hard as a rock


The freezer may get as low as -18 degrees F or 0 F this is the point when life and bacteria stops growing.
Ice cream shouldn't be that cold unless it is whipped with air.

Whirlpool Top-Mount Refrigerator Freezer warm, cracking noise


8yr old? Buy a new one. The cracking sound is from expansion and contraction of the cabinet and ice cooling or defrosting. It can be as simple as a bit of a top up of refrigerant, but can also be that your compressor has worn down the valve plates and therefore is not producing sufficient pressure throught the system.

There is a vent that is connected from the freezer down to the fridge right where the fan is,make sure nothing is blocking it.

Load noise coming from freezer


nothing to do with light bulb - noise is probably fan hitting ice that has built up. to check, remove back panel inside freezer and check for ice build up. melt off with a hairdryer and get back to me if i'm right

MAGIC CHEF CTF1920ARA - Freezer works, Refrig. portion does not.


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
