Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker
Whirlpool etowsrxmq03-- back wall of top-mounted freezer is warm and there was a red glow showing thru the vents momentarily. I recently emptied the freezer of old food and maybe I just haven't noticed this before. So far, the food is not thawing but is this normal?
Yes that is normal. It is going thru one of it's automatic defrost cycles to melt off excess frost building on the cooling coil mounted behind the rear panel in the freezer section.
The red glow is the heater doing it's job. It does this for a short period of time, and causes the rear panel to become somewhat warm, but only for a short period.
It only occurs about once a day randomly, and lasts only 21 minutes, so the odds of seeing it are rare.
