    I have the same situation - the red alarm light comes on if the door has been opened. The repair man said it is either a block in the condenser - $300 for repairs or problems with the condenser itself - $500-$700 for repairs + $78 to be taken to the repair shop.

It could be the thermostat. Before getting into that you should check a few other things. Check and make sure the condenser on the unit is clean and has free air around it. On some models the outer skin of the refrigerator or freezer acts as the surface for transferring the heat from inside to the outside air. These should be kept free of those stick um objects and the top is no storage area. On a frost free unit make sure it is frost free. Check the back wall for frost . If there is frost on the back wall the defrost system is not functioning properly. Check the temperature. Depending on what you are storing determines what temperature is necessary.

My Westinghouse Frost Free fridge is not working. The freezer is working. It is has the freezer on top of the fridge, separate doors


Even though it is frost free, try defrosting it by turning it off with the doors open for a few hours. There may be ice or something else blocking the vent between the freezer and refrigerator sections. Of course you will need to remove everything from the fridg and freezer and store it somewhere else that is cold.

Hotpoint refridgeerator side by side fan not working nor does the compressor?


First thing I'd do is defrost it completely, that means turning it off for a few hours with door open & letting the ice melt, you could be getting a buildup of ice in your freezer jamming the fan before the automatic defrost has time to clear it. Also check that the seals are sealing completely, (that can allow frost to form in freezer), if not use a hair dryer to soften them (gently) & mould them back into line.

You may have an issue with a defrost component (e.g.: defrost thermostat, defrost heater(s) or defrost timer). Contact an appliance service company.

check if the compresor still working first then the fan next to the compresor ...then the fan in the freezer , then see if there is frosting inside the freezer evaporator, but the main part is the compressor starter unit next to it... that might be the problem :)

Frost Free, freezer ok but fridge warm


If all else fails I would completely defrosted the unit.If there is any blockage this will open up all the tubes.Unplug it open the doors put pans of hot water in the freezer to speed up the process.
Make sure your fan is still working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refridgerater may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Westinghouse Aurora Frost free fridge


You need to remove the clog in the drain line from the freezer to the condenser, Look under the fridge for the plastic drain line and blow it out or otherwise clear it, Then insure that the unit is level. Sooner or later you need to clean the freezer drain pan. After using up your frozen food, remove the back panels of the freezer and clean the area well.
