Question about Estate Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have an Estate refrigerator by whirlpool Corporation, model # TT18DKXRQ01 with a 12-07 mfg. date. When you open the refrigerator door, as it closes, the freezer door always opens and closes. Apparently the magnetic gasket is not strong enough to keep the door from opening. I had to throw away 3-4 garbage bags of food due to the freezer defrosting overnight. We think due to the freezer door opening so easily that something that was stored in the door of the freezer fell down when we opened the refrigerator door one night leaving the freezer door wedged open a bit all night without our knowledge till the next morning. How can we solve this problem? I do not want to loose any more food. Do they make a better gasket for this model? Thanks, Teresa

I also own a model # TT18DKXRQ01 Estate refrigerator and my freezer door pops open when I close the refrigerator. As you stated, this is caused by the magnet in the freezer gasket not being strong enough to hold. As far as I know, they do not make a stronger freezer gasket but even if they did, it would probably be too costly considering that a standard gasket replacement costs $80.

My solution was to install an adhesive child safety lock on the top of the freezer near the door handle. I purchased the 'Safety 1st Lock Release Fridge Latch' model # HS038 from my local Walmart store for around $5.

You may find this solution to be slightly inconvenient at first but you will get used to it. It sure beats losing food because the freezer door was accidently popped open.

WATER DRIPS DOWN FROM INSIDE TOP REFRIGERATOR BELOW FREEZER


Not an original solution - but a good one. Remove panels at the back of the freezer compartment to expose the heater unit or heater wire that defrosts the freezer coils and wrap a solid copper wire gently around the heater/ heater wire and place the loose end in the drain. This will conduct heat to the freezer drain and help keep it open. I did see a manufactured part in one of the appliance parts websites but it did not match my unit.

How can I tell the age of my washing machine?

System was off


Hello. Did you try running the water through the door until it becomes room temperature? This will completely flush out the water resouvior in the fresh food section. When it comes to the ice tasting bad, a lot of the time it is from something that has gone bad in or behind the crisper drawers. Take the drawers out and check. You may be thinking how can something in the frig compartment effect the ice? The frig is cooled by the freezer by a opening in the top and bottom of the center divider. Hopefully this helps.

CANT FIND MODEL OR SERIAL NUMBER ON DRYER


There should be a nameplate along the door opening. This is normally where Whirpool puts their information. Just open the door and look along the door or door frame opening. The nameplate data can also be located along the back of the operator console on some models. Let me know if you still can't find it. I hope this helps.
