Hi,
There can be a couple of things that could be happening...
The first and easiest thing is to check the air filter. Make sure that it is clean... clean it or replace it. Next check the air vents to make sure that they are open and giving you good air flow...
Also check to make sure that you are not icing up on the indoor coil... ice will tell you that you are low on refrigerant. You also could be low and not be icing over, but you would need to have gauges on the unit to check that.
Finally check and clean the outdoor coil...this also can give you problems if the heat is not being removed from the outdoor unit efficiently...
You may also have a unit that is sized in such a way that it hits the balance point at about 85...that means that your heat gain is equal to the capacity of the unit...I often try to size them for about that here in Northern PA. because wqhen seldom get hotter then that and the unit then is much more effective at removeing humidity at lower temperatures...

Here is one about cleaning the condenser coil and at the bottom of that one are links to others..

My whirlpool will not drain only a year and a half old


That's usually a clogged pump, Heidi. Chances are a sock or something got sucked into the pump and stopped it. I'm not familiar with your particular model but normally one has to open up the machine to clear the pump. It's not difficult with normal tools but you'll probably need some room to tip the machine. There are instructions (including videos) online to help. Good luck!

Thanks for being there. I bought a Whirpool refrid/ freezer on top from a friend and the water pump behind ans at the back of the unit was broken. I had a repair man replace the water pump. What happens is...


If your ice maker was leaking before and after the valve replacement, it is likely the ice maker that is at fault. The ice maker energizes the water solenoid, its not a pump, which then opens to allow the pressurized water flow up to the ice maker. If the valve solenoid has been replaced, the culprit is likely the ice maker itself. The valve should only be open for about 7-9 seconds, but if the ice maker motor is slow, or if there is some other malfunction with the ice maker, it will energize the valve for too long, causing it to then overflow. It could also be a hairline crack in the ice maker mold that is causing it to leak.

Doesn't drain water and spin


It sounds like your drain pump is either clogged or bad. Bail out as much water as you can with a cup and then check the pump. There will probably be something in the pump stopping the impellor blades. There will also be alot of water so make sure you have towels and/or a bucket when you take the pump off.

Hoshizaki ice machine KM500-MAE not sending water to harvest


I would not change the pump. If it runs for 3-5 minutes and stops, it has to be a control. The control board runs the freeze cycle for the first 5 minutes. This prevent "Short Cycling" of the freeze cycle. The board looks at the float after the first 5 minutes for the proper water level but should not effect the pump. If the pump does not run in the wash mode, check out the "Power/ Wash" switch. I would start there before I go spending hundreds on pump motor or control board. You may be able to get by on a $20 fix! Do this and get back to me. We will get it going.

Good Luck

Won't stay cold for long


IF your compressor is not pumping correctly that would be your problem. If it where the freon you would not have any cool cause it would leak out and you would get alot of warm air. this sounds like the compressor is pumping but not recirculating

Danby icemaker not pumping water


I have the same problem, the ice shovel was catching and not moving forward to shovel the ice, this stopped the ice maker. i have cleaned off the surplus plastic from the molding process (on the underside of the shovel) and this so far has cued the problem.
