Question about Westinghouse WRS6R3EW 36" 25.8 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/ Built-In Water & Ice Dispenser &...

1 Answer

I have owned a side by side refridgerator for 2 years now and often the alarm goes off and the freezer temp is flashing. We have called in a service guy and he didnt really do anything. The second time he was called he found ice had built up around the wiring behind the panels of the freezer. A hairdryer was used to melt this ice and then it seemed to be okay after that. A few months later we have the same problem. Ice has built up again and it seems the fan is not blowing enough cold air to freeze everything in the freezer. Not sure whether to call the last service man again as same problem seems to occur. meanwhile the beeping is driving me nuts. Any ideas?

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

What if the code doesn't work for the refridgerator once we install the board? It justs beeps which means incorrect code.


Please pay careful attention to step 5

4. The control will display PE to initate the program mode
5. Entry is confirmed by pressung the Freezed temp Down Keypad (-) once more.

NOTE: If the program CODE is correct, The programming Mode is exited by closing the Refrigerator door(s).
7. Press the Refrigerator Temp UP Keypad (+) or the Refrigerator Down Keypad (-) to change the digit value with each key press.

Refridge temp


Lets go over the way a sealed system works. There is a highj side and a low side. The low side is the side that passes through the evaporator coils inside the machine. Most times on the freezer side only, but sub zero has independent sealed systems for each side. Once it goes throug the evaporator its then condensed into a liquid state, the high side. This is also the hot side. Well, lower pressures in the low side would logically mean lower temperatures. So for the refridgerator not to freeze more freon is used on it to keep the low side pressure higher than normal, giving the cooling effect verses freezing. So, and here is the bad part, if you are seeing ice build up in the refridgerator side you have a freon leak some where allowing the pressure to be less than required to keep it above freezing. Call a service technician and depending on how the model, sub zero warranty is parts and labor covered for the first 6, and only parts from the 6-12 year.

GE side x side refridgerator temperature is


unlikely both temp.sensors will be faulty at the same time. Notice how different the internal temps.are compared to the acurate one you are measuring it against. Almost certain board is defective because incorrect info in the processor will tell the compressor/s to switch off before time.(hence not correct temp. all the time.) Suggest replacement.I normally replace probes as well to eliminate problems later..

most units are on a timed defrost that occurs at different times so finding the exact time will be hard but defrost times are about 30 minutes. from the pressures you posted I'm thinking that the condenser fan is not running or the condenser itself is plugged up with dust. (i'm not very familiar with r404 but for most other refrigerants the hi side pressure is really hi). if its still in warranty you would be better off to call your service company after your sure the condenser itself is clean to prevent a charge for impproper maintanence. thanks peyton

Refridgerator/freezer will not cycle off


http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=Zip%20Code is the factory locator for service and parts. 2, 5 ,12 warranty applies. If you have cleaned your condensor located behind the bottom drawer, it sounds like you may have a sealed system problem and the unit is running long to keep up. This is under the five year parts and labor or the year 6 -12 parts only warranty. If it was a board problem and running all out you would not maintain desired temp. If you call the factory at 800-222-7820. They can walk through some more steps to narrow down exactly what you need to do.

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator


I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.
