whirlpool has a problem with the relayoverload thats plugged into the compressor. unplug the frig for about 5 min. then, while standing behind it plug it back in and listen. if you here a hum then a click, then you need to replace the relay overload. remove the back panel. the relay overload it plugged in on the left side of the compressor. very easy to replace

SOURCE: Whirlpool refrigerator side by side door seal very hot

when you said fans working....does it include the condenser fan? or it may have two evaporator fans..

if condenser fan is working, then it is just normal. if the compressor is running, that part would really heat up. and if it is too hot, then the condenser fan could probably not running.

its not constant because the compressor cuts off when ever the thermostat cuts off.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: Terrible taste that came from water?...

Do you have a water softener? It's possible the softener was in soak when you used the water dispenser. That would explain the "salty" (hi sodium) water taste and thena retrun to normal later.

Also, if you get your water from a muncipal well, they may have been experiencing a problem at the time with higher than normal sodium content.

I can not get the frige temp to lower

What is the exact problem with this machine, is it with the thermostat itself, or is it that the fridge is not reaching the correct temperature?
Is the compressor/motor working ok? if it is, check the defrost tray and see if there is any water in it. The defrost tray is usually in the compressor compartment.
Frost free fridges require that the freezer coil [hidden inside the cabinet] is defrosted regularly, and it does it several times a day automatically, so if anything goes wrong with the defrost system, it affects the efficiency of the whole fridge.
assessing what is wrong with the system can involve a lot of dismantling of the trim inside the cabinet (depending on make & model), as not only has the refigeration system itself got to be checked, but the de-frost system too.
If you are not sure, get a Refrigeration Engineer to look at it, as it can be cheaper in the end.

I hope this helps?

Water dispence slow

do you know if it is a whirlpool made model, 27ft french door, ice maker in ceiling, they had issues with a seal between ice compartment and ref side- leaks freezing air to water tank area, freezing tank. other wise if its not the filter -then water flow to unit. ck where it connects to ref, if good( should have steady stream with press. replace ref valve if bad look at your valve in wall or at sink.

It's a compressor issue. Either return it to the manufacturer or try an totally replace it's compressor.There may be major leaks in the system as well. The entire system may be ruined so tend to the issue ASAP.

GE REf. model GSS22JETAWW--Defrost problem. Have changed board-heater-and bi-metal. Still frosts up in 4 days.

Frosting up in four days! If the entire evaporator is frosting up (blocking air flow) in only four days, you have an air leak. Door not closing, bad door gasket, something like that.

Freezer gets cold, Refrigerator Hot

First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

Now, why is that cold air not getting over to the Ref side?
1. The little door is not open.
check your control setting. You can't see the door but, you should be able to feel air coming through the channel on the Ref side.

2. The fan in the freezer is not working.
You can hear this fan running when you open the freezer.

3. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice which won't let the fan circulate the air over to the Ref side.
This is a failure of the defrost system which consist of the defrost timer, heater, and thermo disc.

Also, If you replaced the evaporator fan then you got a good look at the cooling coils. Look at these coils while it is running. There should be a light coat of frost on all the coils. If this frost line is only 3/4 or 1/2 or any amount less than full coverage of the coils then the system has a coolant leak.

Directly under these coils is the drain pan and drain hole in the middle. This area should be clear of any ice or debris.

Whirlpool refrigerator stop cold but frosting bad

Hello Catherine Fu,

You said, you got this whirlpool double door refrigerator for 4 years. cost me about 1.5k. the second year, right after warranty, the main brain is down-the light panel in the refrigerator is off. whirlpool tech told me to replace it will cost me 500, so you decide not to do it. Now you have bad frosting issue for 6 month. Inside the Refrigerator, the water keep on dripping on side wall and glass drawer ceiling. In the freezer, frosting all over each drawer, and the bottom drawer has too many frosting and ice that i can hardly close the door. Last night, the refrigerator section just don't get cold anymore, it shuts up by itself.
Help!! It is an very expensive refrigerator and ONLY 4 years old .

First,I think you need to have a new tech.
It sounds like you have either an air leak allowing out side air in and this causes the icing.
Or you may need some freon (coolant gas) .
If your freon pressure is low it can ice up.
Did that tech that was there check for a freon leak and also check the pressure of the freon in the lines???
You need to call a different tech and let him see what's happening.
Some company that is reliable!

Let me know what they do for you.
God bless, Huuum

please remember to leave a rating.

You have to replace the door seal. The seal may be a mundane technology and it isn't the only technology making a refrigerator frost-free, but it is the most important one. Warm moist air enters through the gap in the door seal, condenses on cold surfaces and freezes. The frost interferes with airflow and prevents the system from keeping the fridge cold. Turning it off for a day allowed the frost to melt.
