SOURCE: fridge not cold freezer ok

More then likely your problem is that its not defrosting correctly in the freezer and the ice has built up behind the panel and not allowing the cold air down into your refrigerator.

SOURCE: my rv fridge will build up ice and freeze food too cold

The thermister for the temp control is a likely culprit. Eric

It won't be the defrost timer, unusual, it will be the defrost element inside the freezer section behind the back panel or a shorted defrost klixon.

Westinghouse virtuoso fridge- my top panel has gone blank - and everything in my fridge is now freezing - is there an easy solution to fix this ??


Sounds like the thermostat has failed to on and the machine just keeps freezing. Before replacing the panel try turning the power off to the fridge at the wall for 2 minuites and then return the power.

Westinghouse virtuoso the alarm keeps going off fridge not cooling freezer is not freezing. Help!


Try adding refrigerant or freon. The Alarm just warns you that it's not cooling or freezing and your food is thawing out. Check the fan if you hear the fan running it should be the coolant needs to be put in it. Or it could possibly be both.

What shld settings be as food is freezing in fridge it has side by side knobs saying colder mid less cold it is a westinghouse fan forced frost free freestyle unit


The settings are "relative". Someone with this fridge in Montana may need to run the same fridge with different settings than someone in Texas to get the same temperatures.

Many manufacturers recommend that the fresh food compartment should be 34 degrees F, and the freezer -10 to 0 degrees F. To set this properly, place a thermometer in the freezer (that can display temperatures as low as the desired temperature). Adjust the thermometer for the correct freezer temperature before going on to the fridge. A fully stocked freezer could take 12 hours or more for temperatures to stabilize after making changes to the thermostat. Once the -10 to 0 degree temperature has been achieved, set the fresh food compartment temperature.

Place a thermometer (that can display below freezing) in a 6 (or so) oz flexible plastic cup of water and place on a shelf in the fridge. A glass of water could break if the temperature gets below 32 degrees if the water turns to ice. The water acts as a buffer to rapidly changing temperatures when the door is opened to read the thermometer. If the fridge is "full", allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize before making changes.

If the fridge and freezer are empty, changes may be seen in just a few hours or less. Otherwise, wait the 12 / 24 hours for the freezer / fridge compartments.

I hope this helps and good luck!

I hope someone can help me. I have a Whirlpool Fridge Model Number WRN52HWG6 and we bought it from Fridge and Freezer City O'Connor Perth about 6 months ago and I don't have the owners manual for it...


If you turn the dial clockwise this will make it colder anticlock less cooler...Start by switching off for a few Hours leave door open to allow defrost...Turn the stat fully anticlockwise to almost off then put it to say 2 o clock position assumming that it will go from 12 to 10,this should allow food to remain cold without freezing.you are looking for about 3/8 Degrees c.....Buy a cheap thermometer this will help to keep you on the right track..Good luck
