Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

My freezer is not getting cold enough. I'm not positive how old it is as it was in the home when I purchased it. The freezer is on the top and has been fine up until a couple days ago. I took all of the food out and only put new trays in to make ice. 1 of the 4 trays froze. I did vaccum the back and the front underneath. The fan isn't running in the freezer however the 1 in the bottom of the fridge is. I can't see the 1 in the freezer so I don't know where it is. Any suggestions ?? It is a Whirlpool model # ET22DKXN00 and the serial number is ED3146283. Thank You, Cindy Padlo cindypadlo@sbcglobal.net

Hi Cindy,
You already figured out your problem.
It is the non-working freezer fan motor.
If the freezer fan motor does not run,the freezer barely freezes and the lower fresh food compartment gets a little warm.
You can get a fan motor from a local appliance parts store if there is one in your area.
If not,order online from www.repairclinic.com .
To replace the fan motor,you would unplug the refrigerator.
Remove everything from the freezer including the ice maker.
Remove the screws from the back wall of the freezer and then pull the freezer panel out of the way.
The fan motor will be right in front of you.
Let me know if this helps you.
Good luck.

Used Kenmore freezer won't get cold enough


If it is running but not cooling enough the problem is in the sealed system.

If you started it up just after hauling it home it may have be moved around enough to get oil in the systems smaller tubing causing problems. Unplug the unit for 24 hours and let it sit. Try it again for 24 hours and see if it cools.

If not this means either there is a refrigerant (freon) leak in the system or a restriction causing the refrigerant to not flow properly.

Either one are an expensive repair. and will require a professional to look at.

You may have a bad condensor fan motor or paper may have gotten pulled under the fridge and jammed the fan blade. The energy switch will not help with cooling it only controls exterior moisture.

Why does freezer get cold but not refrigerator side?


Check the freezer temp (available in most grocery and home improvement stores). The temp should be between 0-10 degrees F (not just barely below freezing).

Hotpoint CTF15ELD top freezer refrigerator - freezer O.K. refrig too warm


It's likely the door was inadvertently left open, and the cold air passages from the freezer have built up enough ice that the cold air from the freezer has no way to enter the refrigerator. Check the cealing of the refrigerator. If you can see or feel ice in the passages between the freezer and fridge, you can probably solve the problem by finding a safe temporary home for your food, and leaving the refrigerator unplugged overnight.

Ice maker stopped working, plus fridge not cold, but freezer o.k.


I would check that fan motor in the freezer section is running. it distributes cold air from freezer into refrig section also if this motor is running the top portion of freezer will not get cold enough to allow ice production. the motor is easy to repl and is mod# specific you should be able to buy one online.

Freezer not getting cold enough


I think your system has a leak and has lost the refrigerant charge.
The only way to check is by accessing the sealed system. Most systems are covered for five years on the compressor. Contact the place of purchase and give them your indications for your problem.
