I have a whirlpool fridge freezer 2 years old.. the fridge was left open over night it wont get cold now even thiough i can hear the gasess in the back is it worth repairing is it a big job


shut down the whole unit and let it FULLY defrost,dry it out and then restart as new,it may take 24 hours to settle down,it will help if you have a "fast freeze" button.(as i live in England im not sure of your model).

Freezer not freezing anymore, refrigerator is not as cold. Barely cooling anymore


I hope you find the answer. I have the same problem. I have a 4.5 year old Whirlpool Gold side by side and the Freezer tops out at 30 degrees and refrigerator at 44 degrees. I paid $216 today for a control board by a "local Factory Authorized Service Agent" and the temperature has not budged one bit since the repair 4 hours ago. I called the service company and he told me the refrigerator had to "stabilize" and I should see a difference tomorrow. I'm not holding my breath!

Freezer drain line keeps freezing over


Good day,
Whirpool machines have a very short defrost cycle, as compaired to many brands. This definitely contributes to the problem.
1. Make sure the drain fittings and drain hose to the drain pan are completely open. Not just open, but blown free of any debrise.
2. My experience with many whirlpool products, is ice built up under and back of the drain pan in the freezer compartment. It cannot be seen.
To solve this problem long term, means unplugging the machine, defrosting, and drying it out completely.
24 hours and idealy with a floor fan blowing into the compartment.
3. As well, you wil notice a small round disk clipped to the top of the evaporator. This is the defrost thermostat, and controls the temperature during defrost.
I change and bump this tstat up 5 degrees.
For example, if it's a 50 degree tstat, I replace it with a 55 degree. Or if it's 55 degrees I use a 60 degree model.
You will not be able to buy this as a Whirlpool item, but you can with a little effort, use a GE kit.

The part number for GE replacement kits are for example "WR50X55", the last 2 numbers are the temperature of that tstat, and run in 5 degree increments from 45 degrees to 60 degrees.

A sharp appliance parts house counterman should be able to help you.

P.S. The tstat in Whirlpools are often given in Celsius.
You'll have to convert that to farenheit
Patience in drying the machine is your friend here.
Jack..

Whirlpool bottom freezer 5 years old everything freezes in the fridge


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

We have a whirlpool freezer on top but the bottom of the fridge is freezing


Set both freezer and fresh food controls to their mid position.
If after 24 hours the temp is still too cold replace the thermostat aka cold control.

Fridge freezer not working but lights on


Our new 10 day old top frig/bottom freezer stopped freezing, then the top refrigerator stopped cooling, but the light was working and you could hear some motor running and an occasional "clicking" sound. One internet blogger adsvised unpluging the appliance for 1/2 hour. Another advised 2 hours. Then plug in the appliance and see if it started cooling/freezing again. Our experience = nothing. We called the repair folk and the new frig/freezer had a failed compressor and a broken timer!! We were not thrilled. Suprisingly the store we bought the ap[pliance from gave us a $50 gift card to compensate for the lost food. They didn't have to do that - so ask for it; can't hurt.
