Whirlpool refrigerator model ED5FTGHKQ02


the closest model i could find was ED5FTGXKQ02 instead of ED5FTGHKQ02,could you check that and also what's not cooling both sides or just the fridge section,all it does is the evap coil gets cold in the freezer and the evap fan blows cold air from the freezer over to the fridge section,couple of the ings to check is open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing,if not you have a bad evap fan motor,if it is blowing from the bottom up remove the second bin or draw full of food and touch the back inside wall of freezer,if there's frost or like ice on the back panel you have a defrost problem,if everything is melting in both sides the compressor isn't running,could be a bad timer located in the fresh food section up front where the controls are or a bad start device located on the side of compressor,you might hear a clicking sound every couple of minutes.let me know what you find and check the model number,open the fridge door,look up on the right side wall near the ceiling or down near the bottom hinge on the door.thanks

There is no cooloing effect


the coolling in a refrigerator occurs when the compressor forces freon thru the system and the expansion of gas in the coils of the freezer takes heat away thus cooling the fridge. if no cooling is happening then the compressor is not running, the freon is to low on the charge, or the small "cap" line from the compressor to the cooling coils is blocked. Unfortunately the compressor is the most expensive part of the refrigerator and if it has stopped this can be a expensive problem. there is a few other things that can make the compressor stop. there is an overheat protection device on the side of the compressor that once in a while opens up thus no electrical power to the compressor and no cooling. the other part that can fail is the cold control thermastat. if this opens up the fridge can't start the compressor because the open condition of the cold control never "calls for cold". the other simple thing that can stop the cooling is a totally frosted up coil condition. the air can't circulate around the coils so no cold gets to the inside of the fridge. simple test step one unplug the fridge for 10 minutes then plug back in. Do you hear the motor in the bottom run? If it runs wait ten more minutes and put your hand into the freezer compartment. Do the sides feel cold? if the motor (compressor) in the bottom runs but freezer doesn't get cold then the system is defective and there will be no easy fix. If the freezer does show cold then the problem could be with the "evaporator" fan that circulates cold. this is an inexpensive part and can be replaced at a reasonable cost.

My Whirlpool side by side fridge and freezer not working


Most likely, if you can hear the compressor running, the fan inside the freezer is not working. When the compressor is running, open the freezer and listen for the fan running. If you don't hear it, locate it and, with a voltmeter, test for voltage across the terminals. If you have voltage present, replace the fan. You can buy replacement fans at a local appliance parts store, internet parts suppliers, even ebay.

Our 10 year fridg seems to get very hot on the side...wondering what would cause this Model et18pkxaw00


The condensor coils run along the inner sides of the fridge . The heat you feel , is the heat being pulled out of the freezer which is the purpose of "freon" (to attract heat) . A freezer doesn't get cold , "freon" pulls the heat out , which is then cooled by the condensor fan ( fan which cools the compressor and coils ) . The more heat you feel , the colder the fridge should get ( to an extent ) . Also make sure the compressor fan is working .
