Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Have a Whirlpool ED25RF (XFW01) refrigerator that recently stopped working from time to time. Found that tapping on the control panel would make the fridge work again. A little research pointed to either a faulty cold control or frost timer, but not sure how to access the control panel. Already unscrewed the 4 screws and 2 hex screws holding the cover plate in place, but it still seems to be firmly fixed onto the top. Anyone know how to access the control panel?

SOURCE: freezer cold but not fridge

too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

SOURCE: Refrigerator not cooling, frosting up

You might try GE customer service and ask where to locate the defrost timer,since that sounds like your problem.

SOURCE: refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works

Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked (usually with ice).With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open untill all traces of ice are gone this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool gb9shdxpq bottom freezer

Part 5 in this diagram is your electronic control which controls the defrost cycle. Like you said you know the heater and the defrost thermostat works. So the control is all that's left.

Refrigerator whirpool is only working after tapping on the front control system panel? which part has to be replaced?


Whirlpool side by side fridges with the control panel across the fridge section have thermostats that will fail. Tapping on that control panel will cause the fridge to work temporarily. You will need to replace the refrigerator thermostat if you see small black specks under the thermostat.

Model ED25RF freezes items in bottom crisper drawer. Other parts and drawers ok.


We run across customers that have this trouble from time to time with there refrigerators. The first question i usually ask if the have changed the temperature setting recently. If not try a over night defrost, open the doors and unplug the refrigerator over night. That seems to take care of the problem. Its also a good time to give it a good cleaning. Don't forget to clean your condenser coils to.

Water collecting in the bottom of the freezer is usually caused form a condensate drain blockage. Remove the back panel and there should be no ice around the drain. if there is pour hot water in and around the drain to clear it and flush it out. This should get things fixed.

sounds like your compressor was failing with a bad contact and has now stopped working, will cost as much to repair as replace. At least newer fridge save costs in electricity, yeah sucks to have to buy another, sorry not much else you can do

Whirlpool GB22DKXGW00 stopped working while connected to a power inverter during a recent power outage. The light still works so I know it's not an outlet issue. Fan's not moving, no humming, just silence.


I would check your defrost timer it will be located at the bottom of the ref under the kickplate. You can manually advance it by hand and see if the unit will kick in. If this doest not correct the problem then I would assume that you have a bad temp control or a shorted compressor winding. You can try tapping on the control panel by your temp control with the back of a screwdriver and see if the unit will kick in. Hope this helps _MJ_
