Sorry to read about your problem. you can have many different problems.
if your freezer, the side where you freeze meat, is defrosting and ice melting, your Refrigerator, where you keep the eggs will soon follow. your freezer supply's the cold to refrigerator.

you are having a complete failure, and below is a list of what may be going on.

1. Bad temp control
2. Failing compressor
3. Defective start cap
4. Defective overload protector
5. Defective control board

I suggest you call a service company since you do not have the equipment to work on a defective compressor, if that's the problem.

I have tried to help you. Please help me, by Vote/Rate my response. Thanks.

If you live in the Denver area, I can help you.

I had water in bottom of kenmore fridge. This is now fixed but soon after I had frost building up on back wall of freezer.


you now have a defrost issue,remove rear panel inside freezer if the evaporator is covered with a heavy ice and frost build-up then either the defrost heater under the evaporator coil is open or the defrost thermostat on top of the coil is bad you need to check both for continuity or the defrost timer if equipped or the A.D.C. adaptive defrost control is bad and not supplying power to the defrost circuit

I want to replace faulty freezer thermostat in whirlpool side by side fridge mod ed22dqxew01 --am having trouble removing cover for freezer-refridgerator control dials. I removed two screws in rear of


First question why are you replacing the freezer thermostat? Do you have an ice build up on the rear wall of the freezer? This build up if you do have it is not due to the thermostat control for the freezer. It is termed as a defrost issue due to a fault condition being present in the defrost thermostat, the defrost heater, or the defrost timer or adaptive control depending on which type of refrigerator you have. I will await your reply as to why you are replacing the control thermostat and if you do have any ice up condition before posting further how to solve this situation. I await your reply
Thank you

Freezer is not working


Check the inside, back lower wall inside the freezer. If there is ice built up on it, you have a defrost problem. if so the heater is most likely bad and will need to be replaced. You can take a blow dryer and defrost the ice, removing the panel so you can defrost behind it also. Once you have, you can see the heater and at that time you can get to it to check it and see if it's bad. You can put the panel back on and turn the fridge back on and it will work right for 3 to 4 days. This will give you time to either repair it or have it repaired without loosing any food. Good luck

Whirlpool conquest 2001 GS6SHAXKQ01 refrigerator side by side top part is not cooling


the first one sounds like it is slowly leaking freon.
  •  the second Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.
