Westinghouse fj383


ne of the most common reasons for the freezer to start failing is called "frost free failure." Ice can build up on the evaporator coils over time, and this ice builds up until it starts blocking the fan. The fan is responsible for circulating cold air throughout the freezer, so if it is blocked the freezer will not be able to freeze any food. You can usually check this by removing an access panel in the back of the freezer to inspect the coils. If ice is built up on the coils, a hairdryer can assist in defrosting them

I have a Kelvinator Opal Fridge/Freezer. The freezer is working fine but the food compartment wont cool. It used to run too cool and freeze stuff on the top shelf. The fridge seals are fine, the fan runs...


The vent from the freezer to the fridge can be blocked with frost and is preventing the flow of cool air to the fridge.
This can happen if there is frost build up due to failure of the auto defrost timer.
So please check on the fan section , remove panel and see if there is frost or block, if so check the timer Heater and the thermostat.

Fridge compartment of westinghouse bj433v-r is not refrigerating, freezer is refrigerating. The fridge fan is working.


The freezer control on most units is just a door that you open or close to let more or less air into refirig from freezer. The higher the setting, the less air to the frig side.
If frost build-up on freezer side, then you have a defrost problem. Too much frost build-up on evaporator is blocking air flow to refrig.

Westinghouse Wse6100WA side by side Fridge-icing up/not cooling


This is a bad design flaw, the fridhe is cooled by fan forced air from the freazer. Two ducts vent into and out of the fridge fron the freezer and ice can block them up (which you can find if you take off all the plastic at the top and back of the fridge).
Hence, when they block up, the frindge does not cool, hence the thermostat tells the fridge to keep running which makes the freezer colder and colder, making the blockage worse.

You need to not only fully defrost the freezer (which can be done quicker by removing the plastic panel in the back of the freezer and using a hairdryer) BUT also fully dry the fridge before turning it back on.
To stop it happening again, avoid puting unvovered liquids or hot items in the fridge. Also avoid leaving the fridge and freezer doors open for long especially in humid conditions. As I said, it's a bad design.

We have a Westinghouse WSE6100SA - side by side fridge freezer. Still under warranty. The repair guys have been twice now to temp fix the freezer, to no avail. the freezer is not freezing or I should say...


sound like the air supply baffel is the problem / or if the lower air vent is freezing over then the water is building due to icemaker / the water overflows on the inlet water fill tube to the icemaker and running down the inside behind the panel / they can take the fill tube from a ge icemaker kit and cut it in half and slide over the tube thats in your frig and it will keep it from running over / a problem wgi has had for awhile now / if you havent call sears i would since they should know the same.

Westinghouse Fridge problem


-Try defrosting the unit. (force defrost)
- Check air vent if air is present.
- Check if the unit is not overloaded with stocks or air vent block with stocks.
- If no air is present in vents then check your blower inside if operating.
