Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

My Whirlpool Aquaspace fridge freezer is sounding an alarm. The display shows -- for the freezer temp instead of -18. I have emptied the freezer so I know there is no blockage and have tried turning it off and back on again. What do I need to do?

Hello,

Check for a tripped circuit breaker. Also, test the power outlet voltage. Inspect the electrical cord for any cracks or damage. If you are using an extension cord, remove it and directly plug in the freezer cord to the switch board.
Check the thermostat for temperature setting. Also check the condenser coils and clean them if found clogged with dust. Unplug the freezer and wait for a couple of hours before plugging it again. If you can hear it running or whining, perhaps the compressor is being overheated. Test various components such as temperature control knob, evaporator fan, defrost timer, compressor relay, overload protector and the compressor motor.

Take care.

My whirlpool side by side fridge freezer power cut alarm will not stop going off temp display is reading -7 degrees Celsius in freezer but I put therometer in it and that is saying -17 degrees Celsius...


Are you sure it's not a temperature alarm rather than power? Check the thermistor isn't in a block of ice, give the freezer a good defrost, and check the condenser is nice and clean.

Hi Heather and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. It took me over an hour but I did find your manual online. I first had to realize this was a UK model. Your manual is here:

http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgwpsrvifuhome001/DOCTYPE/IFU/DOCLANGUAGE/GB

You may have to go to his page first:

http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgwpsrvifuhome001

and enter this product code:

858615915000

Per the users manual there is a vaction mode and it is discussed on page 9 of the manual.

The alarms are listed on page 10 of the manual:

The Vacation mode shuts off the fresh food compartment completely and there is not a temp display. The icon is in the lower RH side of the display window and is sleleced with the menu button. Per the manual you should keep depressing the menu button until the Vacation icon is not longer displayed. (Icon is a beach lounger chair and umbrella)

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

WHIRLPOOL AMERICAN SIDE BY SIDE FRIDGE /FREEZER


I had probably the same problem. After a little discussion with the factory they sent a technician as a "Good Will Gesture." The technician told me it was the control board down by the compressor. I overheard a conversation between he and his central repair office that it was a common problem. The factory would not admit it. I have a feeling the electronic control board he replace (which would have cost several hundred bucks) was probably made in China. Now I'm having more problems with my Ohio made Whirlpool side-by-side. The freezer is working fine, the fridge is not very cold. By the way, the internal lights was one of the keys to the problems.

Whirlpool side by side Refrigerator not cooling, two -- where -18 temp used to be.


the fact the bowl was filled with water and that you said the inside of the freezer was coated with ice, indicates a failure of the defrost system.
now the ice has gone, reset the temps and wait to see what happens
