Whirlpool frig. Freezer warm, frig seems ok.


Since the temperature is already 40°, the cold control is satisfied and will not run. Thus the freezer will warm up to 40°.

I have a whirlpool frig for about 5 years now and as of the last week the freezer is icing up on the left side where the door opens and the refrigerator part doesn't get that cold even with the controls...


Check the following: is the defrost timer cycling. If it is is the heater working, located behind the freezer back panel, defrosts the Evaporator coil that makes cold.

I have a Kenmore Cold Spot fridge, freezer on top. Fridge is warm, and freezer keeps freezing up on sides and bottom. I cleaned it all out, defrosted it, and it still freezes up and fridge still won't get...


Is this a self defrost model? Frost inside the freezer could be an air leak around the door gasket. Remove the back panel in the freezer and completely defrost the coils. Is the fan running in the freezer. That will make the frig not be cool. With the door closed peek in the gasket to make sure the light is shutting off, this will warm a frig also.

Have a Whirlpool frig. gets very hot around the door????


HI,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,
