Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

Our side-by-side Whirlpool refrigerator is not cooling as much as it should; we have had to put it up to the maximum settings. The panel between the freezer and the refrigerator feels very hot, so hot that you can?t put your hand on it too long without burning it, but it comes and goes on the heating of the panel. We have kept up with replacing the water filter. Also the ice maker has quit working. With the replacement of the last water filter the water dispenser in the door has started sputtering while trying to get water.

Please check the thermostat settings. It should not be on the maximum. If it is so bring it down to the medium i.e move the knob of the thermostat to the left. If it is numbered then bring it to 4 or 5 and then check. Somebody when cleaning has moved the settings to Max cool.

I have a whirlpool fridgefreezer and it is staying an all of the time even though i have put both controls to the warmest setting any suggestions?


Possible that your thermostat is defective and not cutting off the fridge. Please put off the set for about 8 hours and reconnect. check if the fridge cuts off in about 2-3 hours in the normal setting. If the cooling on the freezer is fine and good, then there is a possiblity of the 8 hour auto timer being defective. you will need to check out these sections barring the compressor if the cooling is good. I hope this helps you ? Good day

Whrilpool refrigerator will not cool.


First, put the control back to it's normal setting. Turning it colder is not going to help. Then check the obvious, the coils underneath need to be cleaned, and the fan needs to be running. And check to see if there is a heavy frost on the back wall inside the freezer. If there is it could indicate a defrosting problem. Both will cause the temperature to rise. Also, be sure the fan in the freezer is running.

We have a side by side refrdge no refridgeration


Check your thermostat setting, and set it at little below the maximum level. Put it on. Can you hear or feel the
compressor running? If this running, observe if freezer gets cool. If not, you can have the technician assistance. Have you refrigerant level checked, and
reload appropriate level to get the fridge working. E-mail
to us the result.
