How do I my whirlpool model G115NDXZB0


You may have a compressor failure, due to the failure of the fan.
Have you tried turning the fridge off for a few hours and re-starting it?
If the compressor then starts without any unusual noises, it might just be overheated, and a replacemaent fan will cure it.
Otherwise, it looks like a new compressor and fan will be needed.

Should the fan operate all the time in my refrigerator


Most of the time it runs only when the compressor is running. In other words compressor and fans will run together when the fridge thermostat ask for cold and stops together when thermostat is satisfied. In newer fridges some time inside fan (evaporator fan) might PERIODICALLY run without compressor to circulate little cool air to fridge compartment from freezer compartment.

We had a power outage and now the SidebySide will not freeze in the freezer or cool enough in the fridge area...can you tell me the possible problem & solution...the fan still runs...I have it...


Hi,
The fans are running, then it is indicating a compressor problem. It could be a restriction in the compressor may not be pumping. You need to call the technician to get it repaired.

Hope this helps.

The compressor fan not properly working.


You need to replace the fan. It doesn't use an external starter. Part 24 on this diagram is your motor. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=502485&diagram_id=124933#d124933

My whirlpool fridge is hot, took the cover off of the coils inside freezer, look ok. Took back cover off of the back and the compressor is hot


Hi jason;
Shall take it that you have a Side by Side setup? If so with rear cover off, when you start it does the cooling fan come on beside compressor? Also remove front grille and clean front condensor coils, full dust and hair all problems can happen. (like blocking of car radiator). Try these if fan doesn't work, replace.

Our 10 year fridg seems to get very hot on the side...wondering what would cause this Model et18pkxaw00


The condensor coils run along the inner sides of the fridge . The heat you feel , is the heat being pulled out of the freezer which is the purpose of "freon" (to attract heat) . A freezer doesn't get cold , "freon" pulls the heat out , which is then cooled by the condensor fan ( fan which cools the compressor and coils ) . The more heat you feel , the colder the fridge should get ( to an extent ) . Also make sure the compressor fan is working .

Fridge always running


Check the fan which cools the compressor from behind the fridge . If not working , replace the fan motor . ALSO , check to be sure the coils under the fridge are clean of dust (from the front only ) .
