It possibly needs re gassing. Call a refridgeration expert in to look at it for you, there is nothing you can do without the gas bottles and evacuator.
Hope that helps.

Double door fridge freezer not cooling down heating the panel between the doors


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
The symptom you describes it that of a condenser fan not running. Open the fiberboard panel in the back of the unit and check for substantial lint build up on the condenser coils and fan. Clean it thoroughly. If the compressor is running the condenser fan is supposed to be running. You can push gently the fan blades to see if it is trying to turn....

Once your done cleaning... if you can not get the fan going.. use an external fan directed at the rear bottom of the refrigerator until you can get a new fan. All the external fan is doing is removing the heat... that the fail fan can not.

The noted hot area between the doors should just be warm to the touch once the condenser coils are bing cooled properly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have a Whirlpool Gold top-mount fridge (GR2SH/GR2SHM). It's about 6 years old. About a year ago the freezer started to have ice build up and water would over flow into the fridge. I defrost the...


The defrost cycle is not working. After a predetermined number of hours of compressor running time, a timer actuates the defrost cycle, which stops the compressor and turns on a heating element to melt the ice. Either the timer or heating element is not working. Also, make sure the melted ice water is actually draining and not re-freezing.

IF THE COMPRESSOR IS TO HOT TO TOUCH WITH YOUR HAND MORE THEN LIKELY THE REED VALVES IN THE COMPRESSOR ARE PASSING HOT GAS BACK INTO THE COMPRESSOR AND HAS DAMAGED THE UNIT. MY ADVICE IS TO LOOK ON TOP OF THE COMPRESSOR GET THE MODEL# & SERIAL # & MAKE AND LOOK ON LINE AND GET A PRICE FOR A NEW COMPRESSOR, PENDING ON MAKE AND MODEL THEY RUN AROUND 3-4 HUNDRED DOLLARS JUST FOR COMPRESSOR INSTALL CAN COST MORE THEN THE COMPRESSOR UNLESS YOU KNOW SOME ONE WHO HAS THETOOLS TO DO IT RIGHT

Common problem with fridges. Suggest you get behind the fridge and somewhere on top of the compressor, there is a small pipe that normally sits in a pan of a sort. You need to blow hard into the pipe which will release the blockage in the system and that will clear the line. Water will then start draining again onto the compressor. That will stop the water build up in your fridge.

open door to the freezer and look in the back of the freezer and see if there is ice or frost building up,if so you have a defrost problem.it could be a bad timer or bad defrost heater or bad thermal switch.you nead a continueaty meater to check them out or call for a service call.
