    Same exact problem

    My first clue was the ice melting out the front of my Whirlpool Conquest. I then thought it was just the freezer section but noted several hours later the frig side was warning up. I checked the breaker and flipped it thinking it had tripped. Lights continue to come and I believe the air circulation continues to work. What else can I do to trouble shoot? Does this sound like the compressor? I've had the machine since June of 2001. Please advise. Thanks KB

    Same Here! Used to have issues were I could unplug and it would "reset" but now it does not cool any longer at all. Woke up yesterday morning to a pool of water on my hardwod floor! When we 1st bought it I had to have it serviced and they guy said it was the motor started (basically a relay) for the compressor. Seems like similiar issue now but its not under warranty. I sometime here a clicking also...

    I have had the same problem. The freezer randomly stops working...out of the blue it will start working again. My first indication is the ice cubes begin to melt . I have a repairman coming.. but would love to know what it could be to avoid being ripped off

Don't let them tell you that the problem is related to "sulfur" in your water. It's a scam so that they don't have to repair the problem. The actual problem is that they don't use quality parts to build these units anylonger.

Top part of refrigerator cooling but not the bottom; please help


Defrost the freezer completely. Use boiled water in a pot to make it faster. Frost built up inside the freezer is blocking the vent that lets cold air in the fridge. Good luck

Whirlpool conquest 2001 GS6SHAXKQ01 refrigerator side by side top part is not cooling


the first one sounds like it is slowly leaking freon.
  •  the second Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.
