Question about Haier HTE14WAA Top Freezer Refrigerator

2 Answers

Hi I have a Westinghouse silhouette 415 frost free. The other night it started making an aufull noise so my husband looked at the fast which was frozen and and froze it. Since then though the fridge and freezer aren't cooling properly in fact not at all. If anyone has any answers it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Without getting my hands on your unit it is very hard to tell what is going on....

My first thought is that he knocked a wire loose to the compressor and so now the compressor is not running but everything else is....

I would check the wiring to the compressor and make sure it is getting power...

Hopefully it is that easy of a fix...

But the working in there could have broken a refrigeant line and caused a refrigerant leak... that would basically be terminal...

If that happened you will see oil from the leak somewhere...

Those are pretty much the obvious things that I can think of off hand... check them out and get back to me...

How do I reset the thermostat on my Westinghouse silhouette frost free 522?


There is a few models of refrigerators that in order to reset the thermostat control, all you have to do is unplug the main power plug for 15 seconds and plug it back in. If this does not work on your model, you will probably have to get another thermostat card. If your model is still under warranty, call the 800 toll free number and pay the nominal service fee and get an authorized repair man. The parts should be free if still under warranty.
Hope this helps

Westinghouse frost free freezer


You don't say from what part and what it sounds like.
If it's a cracking noise, I had the problem in a similar fridge - the repair person said the noise was most likely the sound of ice build up being removed during defrost cycle and not to worry. Suggest you check the freezer temperature is not too cold and building up excess ice.

Have a Westinghouse 'Silhouette' Frost Free 415


The reason your "freezing up in the freezer" is your unit is not automatically defrosting. That part you describe is your defrost control, or at least A defrost control. You said while cleaning the back, safe to assume you meant the outside back of the cabinet? Look for a square plug, either black or white, with the same 3-1plug as the defrost control. But, I doubt that is your current defrost control, maybe the original, but the unit cannot run without the defrost control plugged in. Now, your current defrost control maybe defunct, or your defrost heater element, or bi metal thermostat, the latter two are located in the freezer, one at the top, the other at the bottom of the evaporator coil. Test the continuity through both of these parts, the bi metal t stat at top of evaporator needs to be tested while it is cold. Disconnect one end of the heater element to test its continuity. If both of these test ok, replace your defrost control.

Fridge - Westinghouse siloueete frost free 415 problem


Temperature sensing thermostat could be going bad. Also check to make sure the refrigerator light is shutting off when you close the door. There should be a switch to control the light operation when the door is opened and closed. Operate the switch by pushing it in as if the door was closed and make sure the light goes off each time.
