Whirpool conquest refrigerator-about 8 years old-not cold enough
Is there a history with this model,because this is the second time this refrigerator basically doesnt cool on both sides.the foodis defrosting on the freezer and the fridge is making my food spoil.the motor runs and i can see the fan working in the back where the condensor is.i had the temp setting on half way for both sides,but even when i set it to max. it doesnt cool at all!
theres no frosting that i can see.so im thinking then that its something to do with the thermostat?
is that right?
would it be then the defrost timer,fridge thermostat,or a defective temp. control?
what do you think?

You need to remove the ice maker and open the front carefully. It has small micro switches inside it and it sounds like one that opens the water control valve is stuck in the on position. Be careful not to loose the arm spring and how that goes back together as you take it apart. Sea Breeze
I did some research online, and read that the Start Relay is most commonly the problem. My husband bought the part, (about $50) and reattached it to the side of the compressor....and was cold immediately! apparently a very common problem on these fridges.
yes it is. as long as there is still water coming out from the dispenser.
the red light only indicates that it is about time to replace the filter. could be 6 months old. this is controlled by time, so check your water pressure at the dispenser, if it is still strong, then you could still use it .
depending on your condition, some filters would be clogged already even if the light is still green and there is no more water coming out of your dispenser.
hi. thanks for the question. because the door was left open . moisture got into the small tube that lets water in to the ice maker.. and froze. use hair dryer to thaw the tube. remove and clean. thanks the appliance doc. please rate me
