Question about Whirlpool ED2FHGX Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

NOT OPERATING... I now use this fridge as a garage/beer fridge. The power was lost for a few hours and now it won't cool. I have checked the fan, running. I have checked the compressor, don't know if it is running but it is hot. I even called Whirlpool. They told me to they would send out a Service Tech, they would cover parts, but not labor. When I asked about the labor charges they told me to call the Service Tech. The air blowing out of the vents is cool but nowhere near cold. Help me please.

  •  i would first thoroughly clean the coils under the machine and make sure the airflow is not obstructed in any way.
  •  a hot compressor means 2 things, 
  • either the compressor is going bad 
  • or the heat is not being released by the coils fast enough.
  • another thing you can check is for frost buildup in the back of the freezer, this would be a defrost problem.
  • If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
    • possible causes:
    1. bad defrost timer
    2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
    3. bad thermo switch in freezer
    If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

Lack of freon isn't an issue. Check the internal fan between the freezer and fridge. It is usually located behind the back panel in the freezer. If not there, check upper back of fridge. The internal fan blows the cold air from the freezer to the fridge. When it goes out, the freezer will freeze but the fridge won't cool.

I have a Kitchenaid S x S KSCS25INSS00 refrig/freezer. We lost power for 30 hours, it worked fine before the outage, now it won't cool the fridge below 48 degrees, or the freezer below 43 degrees. ...


Try replacing the circulating fan first. If it's not turning, it's more than likely bad. However, the fan might not be your only problem. The problem may lie with the icemaker. The icemaker is essentially the brain of the unit. It tells when to cool, when to defrost and when to maintain temp. Your icemaker may be stuck in defrost mode.

Not Cole -- fan inside are blowing room temperature air


If after freeing the fan blade it still will not turn, you have a bad fan motor. (almost certainly due to it being restricted.)

That will cetrtainly cause it not to cool properly.

If the fan will not turn after freeing it, it will need to be replaced. If it does turn properly, unplug the fridge for about an hour to let the compressor cool down. Make sure all the coils vents etc are free of dust and dirt. Plug it back in, and if the fan is still operating properly, you should be back down to temp in a few hours max.

You most likely have a problem in the freezing/cooling circuit. Check your condenser, evaporator fans to see if they are running okay. Most likely it may be the condenser fan.

Fridge not cooling


It might be that the fan motor somehow got disconnected or worn out, or that the fan itself is stuck.  It’s located in back of the freezer.  Gently unscrew the back and check it out.  You might also have to unscrew the thermostat housing if it is on the top of the fridge part.  If the fan is turning, it’s okay.  If not, turn the thermostat down to its lowest setting and see if it turns on.  If not, unplug it and test it with a continuity tester.  If, there’s no continuity it will need to be replaced.  Good luck.
