Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a ten year old Whirlpool 19.7 cu ft refrigerator that has inadequate freezing. I've checked the defrost system and it is fine. Model # ED20DBXEWo1. My question is it worth fixing. My assumption is it will require a professional to repair.

  • if the defrost system is working fine then before you replace it or call a professional, 
  • thoroughly clean the coils under the machine and make sure the airflow is not obstructed in any way.
  • it also could be a weak compressor ; expensive professional repair.
let me know how it turns out. Mike

Freezer does not keep ice cream frozen


You are having a problem with one of the three main components of the the defrost system. Look into rear of your freezer to see if ice and frost is beginning to build up on the rear panel. If yes begin manual defrost by unplugging and remove contents of freeze. Even better send me the model number of your Whirlpool. That is how I tell you were the problem began most likely. Look around the door frame and inside the fresh food section sea Breeze

Refrigerator is too cold and freezes food.


Good day,
If the machine is under one year old, all working components are under factory warranty. Call for warranty service from selling dealer, or if you moved out of the area, an authorized Whirlpool warranty dealer.

Inside the fresh food compartment near lights is the defrost timer. Turn it clockwise slowly until you hear refrigerator compressor start. If this works, replace the defrost timer. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Servis fridge / frezer not colling or freezing


i would firstly do a complete defrost- incase there has been a fault with the frost free system. if after a full defrost it runs ok then there was a fault somewhere in the defrost system including either defrost heater, cut out or possible jammed circulation fan.
