Question about GE Â 17.9 Cu. Ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator

Whirlpool ed22rf cools poorly on non freezer side.

Help! I'm trying to help this lady who is trying to keep her food from spoiling.  She has a whirlpool ed22rf that makes ice but won't keep the right side cool.  I may have damaged the defrost timer while messing around with it.  It split open and I put it back together.  Could this be the cause of the poor cooling on the non freezer side?  Also, earlier the center strip between doors got really hot.

Check condenser for dirt or dust, check back wall of freezer section for frost, if you find frost there is a defrost problem. Frost buildup on the surface of the back wall indicates that the coil inside the back wall is frozen over. Inside the back wall on the coil are heaters which the timer energizes to defrost at certain intervals. These heaters could have an open circuit, the defrost thermostat could be open, or the timer could be malfunctioning. To test the timer manually you can rotate the clutch head screw clockwise untill you hear one click. The heaters should come on and defrost for 18-22 minutes. The refrigerator should return to cooling after that time. If it does not automatically restart turn the screw once more to a second click and it should start.

Why is there a red hot element in my freezer


It's the only way your freezer will stay frost free. Water will condense from the air on the coil. Eventually the coil will not provide enough cooling to the freezer and your food will spoil. The defrost element solves this problem, however it can also lead to freezer burnt food.

Refrig. Won't keep food cold but the freezer works fine. Milk spoils after 3 days in the refrigerator. What's wrong? The thermastat was supposely changed?


If the thermostat has been replaced, then I would take a look at the dampers between the refrigerator and the freezer. Here is why....
All the cooling takes place in the freezer section of the unit, there are passageways with dampers that connect the freezer section to the refrigerator section. If these dampers get stuck in a certain position you will either have not enough cooling or to much cooling. This sounds like it is your issue. Hope this helps.

Refrigerator stopped cooling


the problem is in your freezer !
open the back wall of your freezer and check if the fan working then if you see a big build up of ice. then its your heater unit or your heater thermostat. to check that it is the problem unplug the unit defrost the freezer coil with hair drier gently and when it done plug it again and see if your fridg get cool (1h or 2) then you know its the heater unit or the thermostat :(

The refrigerator is not cooling enough.


You will need remove the screws in the back of the freezer section, check to see if the little fan is turning, if not you will have to replace the fan motor, this is what circulates the air and keep the fresh food side cool.

Maytag Fridge (Model # MZD2766GEW) not cooling


Check to see if you have frost on the back panel of your freezer in your fridge. If you do your coil is frozen over and you'll have to defrost your freezer. I just did mine cause mine wasn't cooling properly on my fridge side.
