Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Whirlpool fridge freezer ART 462/R. At max cooling setting (ie 7), the freezer is operating OK but the fridge is at 8 degrees (using a fridge thermometer). The interior light extinguishes when the door is shut. The compressor seems to be running OK and not excessively.

If damper fails would it stop fridge side getting cold? does damper require a neutral conection


No the damper,(i call them flapper door,lol) is just a manually operated door that is on a physical linkage, mechanically operated manually, no power is used nor required. a failure will be stuck closed, which is the COLDER setting. which seems as if it is ok, except it means colder freezer!! and as the reefer is reliant on the freeezers evaporator and airflow totally, anyone pegging or setting to max colder is making the door close to reefer, thus starving the reefer and making freezer colder as irt actually says but almost nobody turns it to warmer to cool reefer down more!

I have a whirlpool fridge freezer (model 20rud4). It was working fine until about 3 weeks ago and tthen suddenly the fridg is not staying cold eneough. It was originally set to 5 degrees centigrade . i...


it is possible that your fridge has developed a snag in its cooling system. what could be done from your end will be to first of all switch off the fridge for at least 8 hours. allow it to totally defrost. then switch on to see if the cooling returns. if so reduce the thermostat to 7 degrees and check. if the cooling returns then you will need to check for frosting inside due to failure of the thermostat or the auto defroster. if there is still no cooling then your gas has leaked, failureof the compressor, failue of the valves in the compressor could be suspected. Probe with these inputs. Good day

Kitchenaid Superba Side by side, refrigerator side not cooling


Assuming that your fridge is set at max thermostat setting, and still it cools to 8 degrees only. It only mean
one thing, and that is have your refrigerant level check,
and have it loaded. E-mail to us your comments.

New whirlpool refrig. freezer ok at 0 but refrig


The freezer get the first crack at cooling and combination units have a fan and adjustable vents to steal some of the cooling capacity for the refrigerator. The vent are normally located in the back of the refrigerator compartment and with these, you can balance the cooling capacity between freezer and fridge. I recommend you swap your thermometer back and forth until you get the balance you want; typically the freezer should be at 5 degrees F or below and the fridge at 35-40 degrees F. Adjusting the control for temperature and having the vents set to supply the cold air you want in each compartment should give you the range you want in each.

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.

Whirlpool Fridge/Freezer Door Seal Replacement. Model: ART 462/3


In short no as long as you get the correct seal type from a spares shop, or Whirlpool. Just make sure that it is straight and there are NO gaps or splits in it when you refit it. Usually these will come pre cut to size for the particular model of FF but you can also buy seal strip on a reel from many spares shops. Also when you have removed the old seal make sure that you use a degreasing cleaner to clean around where the old seal was located and make sure the area is dry before fitting the new one.

Greetings! My Whirlpool 21 is not cooling on the bottom, but the fridge is OK. Art


I do not understand your question because your note says it is a top freezer, but the fridge is ok?
The bottom section IS the fridge on this type.
