Whirlpool american fridge

Hi,

you was good enough to advise us 2 weeks ago to defrost the chiller unit inside our freezer and all seemed well, but the fridge is now not cool and we have removed panels from freezer and it is all frozen over again.

Any ideas

Nicky

You have a problem in you automatic defrost system. It could be one of the following that is causing it. The defrost timer could be bad, Locate it and rotate the dial Clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one click. The refrigerator will be in the defrost cycle. Wait about 20-30 minutes and if it defrosts and does not restart rotate the dial a little more and it will start. This tells you that the defrost timer is bad. If it does not defrost and restarts after 18-22 minutes the heater or defrost thermostat is bad.

Whirlpool American fridge freezer FRSB36AF20/2 Triangle Warning light on and freezer not freezing. Fridge ok


Most common these symptoms point to a unit low on freon. The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer. So there is just enough freon for a good fridge temp but not to freeze water in the freezer.
Second would be the coils froze over due to the defrost circuit not working. Also check the conderser fan in the freezer. The cooling fan in the back bottom, if there is one, may have quit also.

Hi, my side my side fridge freezer has just packed up, the temp reads cold enough but the fridge and the freezer parts are both warm :( plz help


While it could be the main control board, I would check for a defrost circuit failure first. If you take off the read shield of the freezer you will be able to see the evaporator coils. If that is a block of ice, then your defrost circuit is not doing its job and the ice is causing the thermostats to read the incorrect temperature.
The good news is that once you defrost the unit, you will have 2-3 weeks before the ice builds up enough to be a problem again. Which give you time to troubleshoot and order the replacement parts.

Fridge side not cold enough but freezer ok.


It is possible that your adaptive defrost assembly found inside the fresh food section and behind the control panel is defective. If not we need to check the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. Sea Breeze

Your freezer section has a defrost system problem. A device (Timer) schedules defrosts, energizes electric heaters which melt the frost, when the temperature of the coil gets above the point where all ice is melted a thermostat opens cutting the electrical circuit for the heater(s). The defrost cycle continues until the time expires (18-22 minutes). Therefore your problem could be any one of the three elements. Timer, heater, or thermostat.

Whirlpool refrigerator w/ top freeezer


It has a plugged defrost drain. You may need to defrost for 24 hours with unit unplugged and doors open. UNPLUG FIRST!! f still leaks, you need to remove floor of freezer, then the back wall of freezer. Remove ice. At center rear under coils is the drain hole that is plugged up. Use hair dryer to melt ice. Pour hot water in this area to uncover drain. With hot water in area, you can put a 1/4 diam. hose or copper pipe in drain and blow into it while pressing down. It will slowly go through ice, clearing drain.
