Question about Gladiator GAFZ21XXMK Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Our gladiator bottom freezer/refrigerator stopped working while we were on vacation last week. The motor still runs, but the air blowing out is not cold. We cleaned it out, unplugged it and plugged it in again, but no change.

It is possible that your compressor has redduced in pumping or the gas pressure has redduced, ;leakage of gas. Sicne you had put off the fridge for sometime and tried again without any result, I think the compressor needs a good check. Since the fridge has to cool definately when the motor runs we must start from here . I hope you check this out or maybe get help to confirm definetely with an estimate. Good day.

Gladiator Freezerator wont stay frozen in the bottom portion. It will go to temp when temp is mved, but then start to warm up. Why?


If the bottom freezer section of the Gladiator Freezerator is thawing out the usual cause is from the coils in the back of the top refrigerator section being iced up. The ice blockage prevents the fan from circulating cold air into the bottom freezer section. These units have a design flaw due to the defrost drain freezing up preventing water from draining out from under the coil. The long-term solution is to remove the back wall of the refrigerator section to get to the coil, thoroughly defrost the coil making sure the drain tube is clear, then wrap a couple turns of #12 or #14 copper house wire around the bottom of the defrost heater element and run it a few inches into the drain tube. Advise unplugging the unit when you do this.

I've had this fix on my Gladiator for a couple years and it has been working perfectly ever since. The freezer stays a constant 0 degrees F and no more thawed out food.

Ice build up


You should to check the Whirlpool Gladiator Freezerator's door sealer to make sure all rubber or plastic seal very well to prevent air humidity come in to build up frost fast. Also, you have to defrost completely and wipe with cloth or paper towel to absorb all waters out and let it dry completely to prevent frost build up.

Bottom freezer not working


Hi, sorry I do not have any advice to offer. We have the same model. Three weeks ago the red light came on and freezer stopped working. Last week the fridge packed up. We may have been unlucky but I thought it might be worth mentioning incase they were related and your fridge gave up as well.
