Question about Whirlpool EL7ATRR Refrigerator

1 Answer

The top three shelves of the freezer thawed all of my meats. The bottom two shelves and drawers stayed frozen. I removed all foods, tossed what was ruined. I unplugged the unit, cleaned it out and plugged it back in. When checked it this morning it was cold but not at freezing temperature.

Ok The problem is that the fan is not running. Do the following first remove the shelves from the freezer and take the screws that holds the panel; there you will find the fan, put some w-40 on the fan and help it spin until it spins on its own. if the fan does not start you must replace the fan. 90% of circulation and cooling problems are caused by this fan.

Have a upright freezer and the meat on the top shelf is thawed out but the rest of the food on the lower shelves are frozen. Is it a vent problem


Either the door seal is bad or the freezer has a refrigerant leak or a bad compressor. Best to have an appliance tech check it. It won't take him long to locate the issue.

Sorry to hear about your problem.

Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice . If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your refrigerator side is warm, or not cooling.

Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Both top sections fridge/freezer of my side by side are not cold


Sounds like a defrost problem. Remove food from freezer section, take the back wall out after removing shelves, and use a hair blower to melt off the ice and frost. Most likely you need to replace the defrost heater.

Water is collecting in the bottom of the refrigerator below the drawers. Water was also in the lunch meat drawer.


Your freezer defrost coils are probably frozen. Or the drain tube is plugged. Remove the rear panel from the freezer and defrost the defrost coils if necessary. Make sure that the drain tube underneath the coils is not plugged with ice or other foreign matter. You may have to thaw out the tube. If you don't make sure that the tube is clear, excess condensate will continue to drain into the fridge. Good luck!

I HAVE A GE PROFILE REFRIGERATOR TOP FREEZER, MODEL# TBX22PAYMRAA THERE IS ALWAYS WATER ON THE SHELVES AND A LOT OF WATER ON THE BOTTOM UNDER THE VEGTABLE BINS. WHAT IS CAUSING THIS AND HOW CAN I FIX IT?


Two separate problems here.
One; remove the ice maker, then remove the back panel from the freezer. The defrost drain is probably frozen . It will have to be thawed. Then run a 1/4 cup of bleach through it.

Two. Water on the shelves sometimes is caused by the frozen drain line referred above.
But can be from a poor door seal on the fresh food compartment.
Check the sides and bottom of the door seal. It may have pulled loose from the plastic liner.
If it is warped and damaged it must be replaced.

Some food is thawing in my chest freezer


these frigidaire made freezers are notorious for having restrictions in the sealed systems that will cause exactly what your describing.

what happens is oil moves around in the freon system and pools up in the capillary tubes and the freon is not able to flow properly. if the unit is under 5 yrs old then should be inwarranty to sears. if its over 5 then probably cheaper to purchase a new one..
