Open Question

I have a Whirlpool ED22TE model side by side. It is running...but no longer refridgerates or freezes. I have vaccuumed all coils, still hot as ever. It came with the house that was built in 2002...so this is only about 8 years old...

SOURCE: Whirlpool Side by Side Refridgerator

the heater in the gasket area is on when the unit is cooling (compressor running). hot weather makes unit run more, hence the heater is on longer and gets warmer. Coils under the unit being dirty or many door openings can also cause extra run time.

SOURCE: refridgerator side of my refridgerator keeps freezing my food

The problem may be low gas or it may be the thermostat is set too low.  First, look at the possibility that you may have the food partly blocking an air channel which is where the very cold air is coming from..  Fridge side should read about 40 F after the door is closed for about an hour.  If colder, adjust.

SOURCE: Our refrigerator/freezer will stop working (not cool or freeze) then days later will begin to work again.

If you have already tried shutting off for 24 hrs. (reset), cleaning the under-bed condenser fins (vacuum and/or compressed air) and the issue still continues, you may be lucky enough to just need a relay/overload switch; the thingy connected to the compressor, which by the way takes patience and ease in removing. However, once the plastic cover is off, simply unplug the relay switch(s) and shake it, if you hear rattling (or) smell burn, the relay is toast and thus needs replacement. Simple enough, for replacement type in the model # of the compressor: (i.e.) [[ Embraco FGS 80 with relay/overload switch ]] cost around ($30-$50)... order, replace, re-plug, and if on target, the compressor will kick in. let run for 24 hours before adding foods, and all is good. Have a nice day. ee

Sounds like a faulty thermostat. Try replacing it with a known good one and retest.

Refridge temp


Lets go over the way a sealed system works. There is a highj side and a low side. The low side is the side that passes through the evaporator coils inside the machine. Most times on the freezer side only, but sub zero has independent sealed systems for each side. Once it goes throug the evaporator its then condensed into a liquid state, the high side. This is also the hot side. Well, lower pressures in the low side would logically mean lower temperatures. So for the refridgerator not to freeze more freon is used on it to keep the low side pressure higher than normal, giving the cooling effect verses freezing. So, and here is the bad part, if you are seeing ice build up in the refridgerator side you have a freon leak some where allowing the pressure to be less than required to keep it above freezing. Call a service technician and depending on how the model, sub zero warranty is parts and labor covered for the first 6, and only parts from the 6-12 year.

Its running cool, But not cold, and will not freeze, the fan is running, the compressor is very hot,, I thought it might be that defrost bar, in the evaporator was not working, which would mean its...


Not cooling compressor running... Verify fan by compressor is running. Verify doors are sealing.
Are Coils are hot in the back by compressor? Clean exterior coils.

Whirpool side by side refrigerator hot door gasket


Good day,
The first step is to clean the coils properly. Remove the back cover, and make sure the cooling fan is running. At this point, unplug the machine and with a wand and a push pull vaccuum blow the dirt out of the coils from back to front.

Yes , it's filthy and ugly, but the only proper way yo clean it.
Make sure the cover in the back is properly reinstalled. (See my tips). At the beginning, the divider will be fairly hot, but should slowly cool after enough running time to get the machine to it's normal temperature.

Refrigerator not cooling but freezes


You might try vaccuuming under the frig to clean the coils so it could disapate the heat more. This could cause that sytem. Also if the fan is not working.
Hoped this helped. If not let us know.

The refridgerator runs but does not cool or freeze anything. There is a clicking noise everytime it tries to cool.


sounds like the compressor has seized and the click is the relay starter to get it going. if it is running and getting very hot the likelyhood is that there is a refridgerant leak.

If the mullion heater around the doors is hot to the touch the inside temperatures are not being maintained. They should be warm but not hot. This usually indicates a problem in the internal temperatures. Check the back wall of the freezer section for frost buildup. Your defrost system may not be working and it had not gotten to the point of complete failure as far as you noticing the temperature differences yet.
