Question about Refrigerators

Refrigerator won't get colder than 45 degrees/ Freezer side is working fine

The unit is a Whirlpool, model ED27DO. The unit runs for awhile then turns itself off. It is supposed to do that or should it run until it has got down lower. The refrigerator has been set to the coldest setting for the past 12 hrs. I checked under the unit and the coils and fan are fairly clean. Any ideas??

    The freezer temp is at 6 degrees Fan is working. No frost on back panel. Setting for frezzer is "B" the middle. I moved the fridge temp setting back and forth and it seems to have helped. The unit is now running constantly and temp is down from 49 to 45 in the last hour. Might of just been a sticky thermostat.

The fridge thermostat is not a true thermostat it controls a damper door the freezer thermostat runs the compressor in order for your refrigerators to reach the proper temp the freezer should be about -8 to-10 set your freezer thermostat lower and see if it gets lower .at the mid point setting it should be about -8 not 6 you may have a problem with its thermostat or a leak in your system reply to me tomorrow and tell me if lowering the freezer thermostat help we want it about -8or-10 and the best way to check your refrigerator temp is put a glass of water in it and stick your thermometer in it and if need be you can e mail me at b4829@yahoo.com just referance your promblem

The Sub Zero 642 uses independent refrigeration meaning the freezer and refrigerator each has their own system. Best to have an "Authorized Factory Service Company" check it out.

Whrilpool refrigerator will not cool.


First, put the control back to it's normal setting. Turning it colder is not going to help. Then check the obvious, the coils underneath need to be cleaned, and the fan needs to be running. And check to see if there is a heavy frost on the back wall inside the freezer. If there is it could indicate a defrosting problem. Both will cause the temperature to rise. Also, be sure the fan in the freezer is running.
