Question about Whirlpool ET8MTKX Top Freezer Refrigerator
It seems as though the refrigerator runs constantly, regardless if the control is set to warm , cold , coldest. the unit is freezing everything that is left in the refrig regardless of setting. it seems that the only thing that works is to set the the control to off and turn back on from time to time manualy. what troubleshooting steps should i take to determine how to repair? From what i have read it seems as though the thermostat may be bad, but is there any way to test before replacing and also are there any other things that i can check/test before coming to the conclusion that the thermostat is bad? Thank You, Renato L.
Ok renato i believe in teaching so here is refrigeration 101 first the freezer does all the colling for the whole unit there is nothing in the refrigerator that cools its control runs a damper door like on a wood stove or fireplace at what we call the mid point setting the middle point the fridge should be about 35to40 degrees food starts spoiling at 42 the freezer should be about -8 to 2degrees the freezer has the only true thermostat that controls the compressor it has a cut in cut out temp and they are filled with freon like the unit and are subject to leaks at which time they malfunction now you can check the freezer for temp at mid point setting if its way below 8 degrees replace the freezer side thermostat which im betting is bad any way and not cutting out now blambnm email me at email@example.com and we will talk ive never seen a whirl pool unit with out a freezer so you must be in another country im in the usa but we can fix yours too ill just need more info ok
