My fridge whirlpool gold side by side is leaking from the over flow tray. I drained it & it was full with in 40 min's or so. the fridge/freezer closes tight & everything in the fridge is still frozen. a couple weeks ago the light bulb blew out in the fridge where the controls are. when I went to replace bulb the controls turn off & seems like there is a short there. the bulb blew & took the control lights with it. when i removed the bulb the control panels came back. same thing happened when I tried to replace the bulb w a new bulb so I just don't have any bulb in there now... all feedback appreciated!

6 yr old side by side inglis fridge/freezer. water


can be from an obstruction (i.e. food or debris) or incomplete defrost. water forms around the drain during defrost cycle and ices up when cooling cycle comes on. defrost the drain and try installing a heat probe part#819043 made by whirlpool.its a metal rod that wraps around the heater and goes into the drain opening to prevent the drain from icing up. hope this helps.

Refrigerator Odor


sounds like fungus in the drain tube
unplug fridge p\and pour some bleach in the freezer
it stinks but it will kill the smell
after 10 min or so take fridge to patio and hose her down water will not hurt the fridge it will however clear the drain lines
and it might be a good time to clean the coils and the colection tray under the back of the fridg any way

Water buildup in the fridge, dripping in from the freezer


This could be a bad thermostat. If your thermostat never closes it's swith then the defrost element never comes on and you get the problem you are having. Easy fix. Do you know where your timer is and can you retate it?

Whirlpool Fridge makes a loud dripping sound all the time G56SHE


Erin,

The water you hear sounds like it's coming from the automatic defroster in the freezer compartment. It runs down a drain tube into the pan you describe under the fridge. The pan is heated and evaporates the water.

Just some possible explanations if you are hearing "lots" of water"

* You may be in a warmer, more humid climate
* The temperature and humidity in your dwelling is elevated
* The door gasket on the freezer may be leaking
* The freezer is too full
* The freezer door is not closing properly
* The freezer door is being left open for extended periods
* There is a problem with the defrost cycle

If you are hearing water running all the time, check the ice maker water line and fill valve (if you have an ice maker) - there could be a leak or other malfunction.

Whirlpool gold, freezer on top, single door


hi thanks for the question the drain system is clogged the drain hose from the freezer to the drain tray undre neath the fridge by the compressor is clogged you may have to shut down the unit to let the ice melt that has caused this problem get a small plastic hose from a hardware store and shove it up the drain dose and blow air up the hose till its clear that's why you have to shut the fridge off for 24 hrs to allow the ice to melt then blow the air thanks the appliance doc
