Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

2 Answers

I have a Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator, a year and three months old. When it was new, I noticed that some of the fresh food was freezing up, such as eggs. Someone came to fix it, and it was good for a while, and now it's back to freezing up again. My warranty is now expired. What can I do? I put the temp. control to the lowest possible, but it doesn't make any difference. If I have someone come out to fix it, it will cost a lot of money, and judging from past experience, the problem will return after a while. Please advise what to do.

I would love to help.
The cold control needs to be replaced,has to be replaced.
Thats what it does.
The best and only thing to do is to take your model number
to your local appliance parts store and have them show you where it is.(and they will sell it to you,too)
I guarantee if you if you change it out you can set your temp any where you want.
Thank you for letting me help.

The fault is the continuos running of the compressor in the fridge and you must be able to check the working of the temperature sensorr ,the presetting on the fridge and the control relay.
The sensor is normally attached to the cooling coils within the freezer and there are many instances of the wires getting frosted and degrading offf to cut off connection.
So open to access this section, after defrosting to see the sensor and wires, if faulty remove and reconnect and insulate.
If all seems fine then the sensor, the control or the relay drive can be faulty, make sure by isolating the part that can be most defective and check it individually.

Why is my refrigerator temperature dropping and freezing food, but freezer temp holds.


Hello Michael, I appreciate your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is dropping the temperature within the fresh food side. The damper is located within the back of the fresh food side and this part will open and close so that the cold air from the freezer will come into the fresh food side. It is possible that this damper can be stuck open or staying open for too long. Do you notice any frost developing within the freezer? If so, please perform a manual defrost on the refrigerator and you can do that by disconnecting power from it for at least one hour. If there is no frost within the freezer then check to make sure no packages are holding the damper open. You may need to replace the damper or the damper motor and I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform proper replacement repairs. Best of luck! -Matt

Freezer does not keep ice cream frozen


You are having a problem with one of the three main components of the the defrost system. Look into rear of your freezer to see if ice and frost is beginning to build up on the rear panel. If yes begin manual defrost by unplugging and remove contents of freeze. Even better send me the model number of your Whirlpool. That is how I tell you were the problem began most likely. Look around the door frame and inside the fresh food section sea Breeze

Turbo cool will not turn off in GE side-by-side refrigerator. Replaced circuit board...still stays on


There are three temp sensors in my GE side-by-side model GSS20IEMDWW (two in the freezer and one in the fresh food side). Replacing the temp sensor in the fresh food side was enough to allow the compressor to finally turn off.

For me, the problem manifested with an iced-over evaporator coil inside the freezer compartment. Since the compressor never cycled off (presumably because the temp sensor was providing faulty data about the temp inside the fresh food side, thus causing it to continually attempt to cool), the coils were constantly chilled. Eventually the ice on the coils would block the air flow and the freezer side could no longer freeze

I purchased a pair of inexpensive thermometers from a kitchen store and put one in the freeze and one in the fresh food side so I could occasionally look at the temps to see if it made sense for the compressor to be running - ie, was it really a warm-enough temp for cooling to be required, or was the computer reading faulty sensor data.

Six months later I also needed to replace both temp sensors in the freezer compartment. My refrigerator is about seven years old. I would recommend replacing all of the temp sensors just to rule that out.

Your model may be different, but this will give you an idea of part numbers and relative locations of the parts.

Freezer cycling on and off, will freeze then thaw out


You have a defrost timer that has possibly slowed down because it is defective. I need you to time the defrost timer or turn the defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment until the refrigerator compressor stops running. It should remain off for about 20 minutes. If a lot longer and the refrigerator does not defrost regularly about 3 times a day then it needs to be replaced. Yes there could be something other than the timer, but if you need my help I'm here let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool gold side by side freezer not freezing but fridge is running


Your fan in the freezer is wearing out. When your food in the freezer is blocking the air, the motor is working too hard. After years of using, it needs to be replaced. Get a repair man in to replace with a new parts. My Fridge/Freezer was totally broken and I found this out because the ice was melting. It got fixed and now no problem.
