SOURCE: My Whirlpool refrigerator trips the main breaker of 40 Amps

A refrig cannot pull 40 amps in defrost , unless there is a direct short in the defrost system ( timer , heater , bimetal ) . I would use an extention cord ( for test purposes only ) , and try a different plug . Sounds like the circuit breaker is weak . In defrost , the MOST you should get , is 6 amps . This will not throw a 40 amp breaker . If you have an amp meter , remove the back refrig panel behind the refrig , and connect to one of the power cord lines (just not the green ground ) , turn into defrost and check the amps . This will tell you if short is in refrig , or weak breaker .

Fridge not cooling whirlpool model gd5rhaxn000


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Whirlpool Model # ETClCHMXK009... Freezer is freezing but refrigerator is not cooling well...


Hi

If refrigerator is not cooling properly it can be due to a defrost timer, which is causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer is bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to defrost thermostat, it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced when replacing the thermostat.
1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Model WBM412 - Freezer works but fridge does not cool at all.


Its due to freezing behind the freezer coil by which freezer fan gets logged to function. Defrost the refrigerator and then run. Keep freezer temp between -14*F and 8*F and fridge temp between 36*F and 46* F. And also check defrost cycling is properly working.

Thanks, helpful?

Whirlpool model ed5fhgxkq03 side by side. Lights


check your temp controll to make sure it isnt broken or open circuit also your defrost timer could be stuck in defrost! next check your compressor for running and see if it is hot!! or just warm? if it is just warm and cycling /running then your low on freon due to a internal leak

Water leaking into refrigerator. Looks like it is coming from the two holes in top of refrig box to freezer. Whirlpool model ET1CHMXKB03.


There is a small heater to evaporate the water after a defrost cycle. This defrost heater is gone and needs to be replaced.

Ice build up in back section of a Whirlpool no frost top freezer refrigerator 66"hx30"wx27"d


your sure the defrost cycle works? sounds to me its not. you need to remove the freezer back and check the defrost components. or put it in the defrost cycle and see if it is working. to get that much frost as you describe the dor would have to be left open. also check all door seals. let me know what you find and we can go from there
