Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

Open Question

Whirlpool AFG 8241 NF Freezer. When we first got it, it did not seem to take long to cool down to -18. But now temperature seems to take a long time to recover from door being opened. Example: freezer nearly full and temperature -17. Put in three loaves of bread. Shortly afterwards temperature was -12. Set the fast freeze overnight but even by this midday today temperature is only -16.

SOURCE: cannot open the bottom freezer door anymore; it seems stuck

sounds as though the defrost system has failed or the freezer defrost drain is blocked. take off the back panel of the freezer and see if excess ice build up. if so, defrost carefully with a hairdryer. at bottom is a drain. check if blocked with ice and if so melt off with hot water till water flows away freely. if i'm right, appliance will start to work. if fault re-occure then defrost system is at fault

Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.

SOURCE: Freezer does not freeze fast enough, icecream gets soft

Faulty Cold control (Temperature Control)
The cold control is a temperature actuated switch and should open when the set temperature has been achieved. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and all items in the fresh food section will begin to freeze.

If the control is not closing, the compressor and all fans will cease to operate. Check the control for continuity.

This is usually not a do it your selfer.

Calibrate temp


You need to balance the temp settings. The freezer controls everything and it you have the refrigerator set wrong then the freezer tries to compensate. This means that things get too cold

Kenmore freezer won't reach freezing temperature


When the compressor gets worn it loses it's ability to cool. 18 years is a long time for a fridge. The last fridge that did this to me, I paid the appliance guy $20 to tell me it was broke (I knew that part). Then he told me it wasn't worth the money to repair it and to buy a new one. Time for a new fridge.

My Whirlpool does not get cold enough. It has 5 x


This means that the thermostat section is faulty as it seems to sense the temperature with an error.
When it is set at a higher level is seems that the circuit seems to get a wrong error and so cuts off. Also if the compressor is not pumping well or the gas is down the cooling will be low.
Try and see on the maximum setting if there is cooling and the point it cuts off, if this get you the best cooling and if the compressor shuts down on reaching this temperature. If so the control unit is a suspect.

My 18 year old refrigerator GE model TFX24FG freezer side is not keeping food frozen. Refrigerator side seems to be working normally.


The refrigerator side is at present working properly , but slowly slowly, it will also loose its cooling.This will happen because, freezer side is the side which cools first, then the refrigerator side ( also called as fridge side)., gets cooled.If freezer side is not cooling / freezing properly then fridge side will also loose its cooling ability.------------ And later on both section will loose its cooling.----------- As per the present situation, it indicates problem with compressor or problem with freezer side door not closing properly.---------- Or the temperature in freezer section is not set to proper cooling/ freezing.--------- So first inspect temperature, is it set right? If ok, then check the freezer door , is it properly closed? If ok, then its compressor problem.? The compressor is running non stop, this is indication of compressor problem.---------- Click this link below for more help:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/both-refrigerator-and-freezer-not.html ----------- Later on both section will loose its cooling. -------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Whirlpool frig. Freezer warm, frig seems ok.


Since the temperature is already 40°, the cold control is satisfied and will not run. Thus the freezer will warm up to 40°.

Whirlpool 6 sense model WSC5513- A+ X side by side, without ice or water dispenser. Refrigerator part not cooling properly. Temperature setting is -18 degrees Celsius for the freezer and 2 degrees...


The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.

Your freezer section has a defrost system problem. A device (Timer) schedules defrosts, energizes electric heaters which melt the frost, when the temperature of the coil gets above the point where all ice is melted a thermostat opens cutting the electrical circuit for the heater(s). The defrost cycle continues until the time expires (18-22 minutes). Therefore your problem could be any one of the three elements. Timer, heater, or thermostat.
