Hi i have a wirlpool fridge the freezer and fridge works fine but it seems the motor keep on running and dont switch off or is it the fan that is running please help


Hello Sandra;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You just have a simple operational and maintenance issue.
Neither your compressor or fans should run continuously.

First, you need to clean your condensing coil. You did not provide a model number so you either have a flat cooling coil in the front bottom, or a canister type in the back right hand side. This coil dissipates the heat. If it is plugged up your compressor and fans will run trying to keep up with the unit temperature settings. This can make a difference as much as 40 degrees. The toe plate, bottom front is either held in place with a screw on each end. If no screws, there is a clip on each end. Just pull and it will pop out.

Second, You only have only one cooling source and that is your freezer. The freezer will try to satisfy itself first before the fresh food section. If you set the temperature controls beyond the unit design settings your compressor and fans will keep running. Set your freezer to -2 or +2 Deg. F., and set your fresh food section to 35-40 Deg. F.

Third, Check your door gaskets. make sure there are no gaps.

My refrigerator kicks on and off but will not cool below 48 degrees


It may be kicking off on low gas, or the cap tubes or the evaporator valve is malfunctioning. A professional technician will have to check it out.

COMPRESSOR RUNS A LOT


Your model has a mechanical thermostat inside the control panel. I believe you have something else going on like a bad fan, start relay, capacitor. Something is causing the compressor to struggle to keep up and in turn causing the compressor to short cycle. If the thermostat has no control over run time then something like I explained is causing the problem. Here is a parts manual=> ED5VHEXVB04 Contact me if you would like my help, Thanks Sea Breeze

The temperature dial is set at its lowest reading and still the refrigerator runs constantly and vegetables are frost bitten.


Potentiometer may be off or the compressor may be stuck open. Call a serviceman. It costs 40-60 bucks in my area.

Compressor overheated and shut down.


Pleas put setting in the middle and give it 24 hrs and check temps

freezer would be good at 0 to 10 f


I thing you have the damper door closed.

WHIRLPOOL NO-FROST REFRIG/FREEZR MODEL-EHT201ZKWR5


looks like operating normally...

the fridge as it reaches it's temperature shuts the compressor off and then after a few minutes..the fridge would increase temperature again and would turn back the compressor again.

its the thermostat which is cutting on and off the compressor.

and i think it is normal. based on the temperatures that you indicated..it is cooling very well..0 F in the freezer and 40 in the refrigerator... that's good.

Refrigerator freezes everything even on the lowest setting


Is everything really frozen or just the top shelf stuff? You may have a thermistor (temp sensor) problem if the compressor just runs and runs and runs all the time. Take a glass of water and place a thermometer in it for about 3 hours then take a temp. reading. That will let you know what the real temps are. See if you can cause the compressor to kick off and on by changing the temp settings (go to real low for about 5 minutes then back up to high). Let us know what happens.
