Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My fridge is a Whirlpool side by side about 25 years old, model # ED19TKXMNR0. Got up one morning, opened the door and the interior was soaked with condensation. I could hear it running but not as loud as usual, like it was idleing. Checked the freezer temp, 40 degrees. Looked like it was not running for 3 or 4 hours. I panicked ! Twisted the temp control in the freezer back and forth a few times, nothing. About 10 minutes went by and it started to run and cooled down to normal. This was last Sunday morning, has been OK since. What's going on, is it ready to die or can I fix this. This seems like it could happen again and maybe not come on.

Hello,

From what you posted, there is nothing wrong with your refrigerator, your refrigerator was only going through defrost, that was the reason for the interior that was was soaked with condensation, while the refrigerator was idle, it was on defrost, this is a normal process on refrigerator when ice are build up at the back of the refrigerator, to under defrost, so relax, whenever you see your refrigerator undergoing defrost.

Your refrigerator is still in good shape for now, so don't bother yourself on this.

Take care.

I have a whirlpool side by side fridge. This


On some models you have a mother board located on the back outer section of the refrigerator that can be faulty. There is a tech sheet located behind the kick plate or under the front of the ref bottom to refer to. If someone olays with the digital controls you may have to reprogram the mother board, which is explained in the tech sheet.

Get your refrigerator repainted before it is too late. It isn't that costly. Cracks may be due to rusting. Ask those mechanics about it when you give it for painting.

Refrigerator not cooling adequately


The answer to the temperature range is NO. It should be 36-40. Could the thermostat be faulty? Are the doors sealing properly? Is the interior light remaining on, when the door/s are closed? Open the door and depress the door switch. See if the light goes out? Being 25 years old, technology has come a long way. Purchasing a new unit wouldn't be a bad idea.

Whirlpool WRN38RWG6 fridge freezer. Fridge won't cool


...try taking the fridge to Thredbo or some other location that gets subzero temperatures and then leaving the door open 'til the interior cools down. Canberra this time of year could work. You could also try just filling it with some frozen water. Most service stations have it in plentiful supply. Best solution for a non-hottness deficiency.
