Good day,
Don't know what your question is ????
However, if the machines were new as of 12/9 then they would be under factory warranty since the're under 1 year old. You should have been able to have them replaced free of charge.
If your concerned about having to buy motors for the rest of them, I would contact the selling dealer regarding possible recall bulletins.

    Good day,

    Yes many have failed early. Way too early. The appliances being produced today leave a lot to be desired. The're trying to replace dependability with effeciency, and the consumer is paying heavily. Not just you. What I see posted here is very disheartening. It's an accross the board fiasco.

    However, you might want to look here. It's a modified motor. But for the balance of your fleet I have no answer other than writing nasty letters. I wish you luck.

Check to see if the sensor in the freezer compartment is encased in ice. If so, do a complete defrost and restart the unit. Another possibility is a bad thermostat and/or sensor.

How do i know if my fridge is worth fixing?


you probably just lost the evaporator motor in the freezer. easy to replace and it's only around $50. look up the model number and you should be able to get the part number.

Squeaking fan


Try unplugging the fridge, spraying the fan motor with WD-40 -- everywhere you can reach -- then plugging it back in.

We replaced the evaporator motor. Use an Ohmmeter to see if electricity is going there, first, see if fan is running, then, if not, replace evaporator motor-part # 12002744.

Fridge is now running! I'll post again, if there is any more to the story. We are now waiting to see if it gets to temp, but it is running. I'd love to find info on a reset code.

The fridge is 4 the freezer is 4 the problem is fridge warm


Can you hear a fan motor blowing or feel air blowing in the freezer section? I'm thinking this fan has quit running and is not distributing air to the refrig section. If this fan is running then check that you can feel air blowing out of the vent at the top of the refig section if not check that the damper is open. you can do this by removing the grill on the vent (it just snaps out) as warm as the refrig is this should be wide open.
The fan os the most likely and most commonly seen problem for me. the part number is 12002744 and is approx 40 dollars. this is a fairly easy fix if your mechanicly inclined. if you call a service company you will be looking at 150-250 depending on the company.
If you have any further questions leave me a comment here thanks Peyton

Whirlpool gold:upper half of refridgerator side not cold


Either the evap fan has a problem, or the defrost system has failed. You should never see frost in the freezer section as the defrost sensor should sense that the coils need to be defrosted before that much frost accumulates.

Unplugging to clean out helped because the frost got a chance to melt away.

If you find the evap motor is running, then the things to check are the defrost sensor, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater.

Reply back if you would like more info.
