SOURCE: Refrigerator Door not closing properly

Hi, No the door is not adjustable like you might think Since it is smaller than the other door any alignment problem is really visible. First do check the bracket to make sure you didn't lose a screw and that the brackets are solid and don't move. The problem is the level of either the refrigerator or the floor. If you have a 3 ft bubble level put in on the top of the refrigerator along the front, NOT on the door. There are feet on the bottom front corners of the refrigerator, you may have to remove the plastic grill to access them but depending on the model and age of your refrigerator it should be attached with clips. The feet screw in and out but with weight they won't move easily so you may have to jack the front a little, remove some stuff or try a crescent wrench. Once the front is level check the front to back, the refrigerator needs to tilt slightly to the rear so the door when partially open will close by itself. Again you didn't give a model so on some the rear feet are not adjustable and some are. I suspect you may have adjustable and the box is not squared up. If after adjusting the front and the entire refrigerator tilts like an uneven table leg then you have to adjust the feet likewise. Use your level diagonally across the top both directions, it should be exactly the same. If you have non adjustable and they are uneven it is the floor and you have to use shims under the low foot. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Refrigerator and Freezer Not Cooling nor Freezing

That leaves only one possible fault; the volatile component of your coolant/lubricant has escaped.
If the unit has been moved or cleaned carelessly, one of the coolant- bearing tubes has developed a leak. Any refrigeration tech will have a leak detector in his tool set so it shouldn't be difficult to find.
Depending on the area in which you live, expect the troubleshooting and recharging to run ~$150-$250 US.
If you reside in the US, check your local (area) Better Business Bureau for a trustworthy service company.

SOURCE: Refrigerator is not cooling properly/fan is not running

HI,

The click and hum your hearing is most likely the compressor trying to start. The most common problem is a bad start relay on the compressor. In rare cases the compressor may be bad. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace the relay yourself for less than 50 dollars. You will need model and serial number off of the unit and order the part by those numbers. if the compressor is bad you will need to hire a good service company

anu further question don't hesitate to contact me.

thanks,

SOURCE: My whirlpool refrigerator (Model ET18DK) does not cool

Most likely one of two conditions are the root of the problem. Either the fan in the freezer is stalled or the defrost system has failed. The fan in the freezer should run any time the comressor is running; if it's not, there's your problem. If you can hear the fan, check for frost or snow developing across the back panel in the freezer. Local repair service could probably supply replacement parts quickly for defrost failures (most likely a bad terminator if defrost system isn't working).

Check the plastic lever on the door. It usually moves closed when the door is shut to turn ice maker on. The lever can freeze and stop the ice maker.

Hello dharitos1. I understand you are concerned about the temperature of the water in your refrigerator. Since the line runs through the door, the water will be slightly chilled, but will not be cold. You may need to run the water through a couple of cycles to get the chilled water. This is normal. I hope this information is helpful. Sincerely, Melanie, Whirlpool Social media group.

sometimes we overload our refrigerators and the doors will not close properly, next time you notice the water see if your doors are closed tightly and the seals engaged tightly. My wife has this habit of not checking after she has put away the remains of a big dinner or BBQ and I find drips of condensate water all over the floor as a result. The defrost collection pan overfills and the excess water goes on the floor. once the doors are closed properly the problem goes away.

Good day,
If it is a conventional refrigerator, there should be a cooling plate on the top back of the wall in the food section.
Assuming the door fits and closes properly, and the light goes out when the door closes, the plate described above should have a frost pattern on it. That is what cools the bottom fresh food section.
If left on for plus 12 hours normal cooling should exist.
If the plate is not frosted, and the machine runs constantly, you have a freon leak with no real practical repair possible.
You could recharge it, but it would be pricey, and just repeat the problem shortly.

Hmmmm, chunks? Are the doors properly aligned? Closing completely? dispenser chute door closed? if so may have frosted the airway to the refrigerator and blocked it. I would totally defrost it and check again.
