Question about Whirlpool Freezers

Greetings: I have a 4-5 yr old Whirlpool up-right

Greetings: I have a 4-5 yr old Whirlpool up-right Freezer - Model EVL201NXRQ04. If it matters -From time to time the Door has been left open .... But always recuperate
Of late my problem was noticed/discovered when the warm alarm sounded. When I looked, it was warm and things were beginning to thaw - so it had been this way for some time. I then exposed the coils and found them totally in-cased in ice. I then used a Hair drier on low and thawed out the coil(s).

Being that the kids have a habit of leaving the door open I figure it was them again. About 3 weeks later it happened again where it froze up and continuously running and the kids were not around. This time I checked the Defrost-Heater and found it dead... So I replaced it.

Now the Freezer still continues to run and run and run.... Every thing is frozen and cold.... It will turn off if I manually reach in and turn the Thermostat down - then even at the lower temp it will kick on after a while... It also appears like as I set the therm lower and lower theat becomes the new base ling for the refrigaer ature Running and running.

The next thing that appears to be next to replace is the Thermostat at amount of $106.00. Is there any other areas that I am over looking Or should consider ? Being the compressor is working, the only other parts that I can think of is the Thermostat, Defrost Timer , and Bi-metal Defrost thermostat.

Also, while it is running I noticed both Sides - [ on the outside ] of the Freezer very warm.

Any input would be greatly appreciated

SOURCE: upright frigidaire freezer not running properly

Sounds like your defrost timer has packed it in you need to fit another timer to it and everything will be as good as new.
by turning the timer you have forced it to run nothing to worry about. It has just stopped in the defrost position. What you have done is the first diagnostic test a tech would have performed. I hope this has helped you out.

The red light is on my freezer also the green one the door has not been left open can you help


This means the sensor has determined that the temperature is rising. This can happen if the door was left open (which doesn't appear to be the case with your green light) or an unusual amount of warm food was put into it. If this is not the case you may have a cooling problem. If you can put a thermometer in there and check the temperature, working properly the freezer should be around 0 F. If you have trouble please send the model number from the tag on the freezer. That will help with trouble shooting.

Change doors of fridge freezer from right opening to left opening needless to say cannot find instructions after 10 years


tilt unit backwards,and under hinge side you will see a bracket,undo bolts and transfer to opposite side leaving loose,slide door down ,then on top of door transfer plug to opposite side(if needed)slide door back up and refit bottom hinges/tighten bolts.
handle is just a matter of prising plastic cover of and unscrewing,then refitting to other side.
once you tip it backward its pretty obvious really.

Ev201nxm door doesn't seal/ices up


I have a EVL201NXRQ05 upright whirlpool. It was purchased in Nov 2008 in the Summer of 2009 the gasket was leaking at the top of the door. The gasket on this door snaps into place (no hardware needed). The problem is the door was bowed in the middle pulling the gasket down and away from the metal frame of the freezer - to the point the magnets in the gasket would not touch in the middle of the opening. I requested a new door while under warrantry. The door did not appear to be repairable it is a glued/foamed-inplace assembly. The new door looked straight when I installed it last summer and now it is bowed but not yet leaking. Whirlpool has a design / manufacture problem with this door design. I have received an extended warranty option from Whirlpool this past week 4 months after the factory warranty has expired. I suspect they know they have any issue, but not much is written about it. I may end up buying the extended warranty, but first I'm going to where I bought it to complain.
