Hi-

Chances are you need to check the freon for the refrigerator. It might dried up. You need to call or bring this over to a service technician.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Hi,

If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running.

First, answer these questions:

  • Is the refrigerator completely dead? If so, see “It's stopped completely.”


  • Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it.


Next, see if the compressor motor is running

The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.

If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

  • The compressor


  • The Thermostat


  • The overload, relay, or capacitor


  • The defrost timer


  • The condenser fan motor

    I have a Whirlpool Gold side by side bottom Freezer gi7fvcxwqoo. The refrigerator side is not Cooling very will. The freezer seems to be ok! Does anyone know what's wrong?


    Either the refrigerator is too cold to run properly in the location of your patio, defrost failure. or air damper is not opening and closing properly. First I would like you to enter the control panel into diagnostic mode=> GI7FVCXWA GI7FVCXWB GI7FVCXWQ Diagnostic Test I am going to be here to assist you in locating the problem but because your model has so many electronic features I am asking you to do the diagnostic test first to help pinpoint any problem your refrigerator may have that can be located while in diagnostics. You may get the complete repair manual by contacting me HERE
    The temperature of the freezer should be colder and around 0 degrees F. What is happening here appears to be a defrost problem. 12729123 Defrost Heater

    Whirlpool top-freezer refrigerator makes loud noise


    Do you think it is the fan in the freezer or could it be the water valve when the icemaker is filling?

    I have a Crosley refrigerator that is about a year old. We decided to replace it because it wasn't big enough. We moved it to our garage and since we've moved it, it doesn't seem to be chilling the...


    If the garage is unheated and the garage temperature is below 50 deg F this is the reason that the freezer is not able to freeze. A refrigerator is designed to work in a heated space. The thermostat is in the refrigerator compartment while the cold evap coils are in the freezer compartment. The fridge thermostat is typically set to around 40 deg F. When the fridge is in a colder environment, the compressor does not need to work that hard to get the refrigerator to temperature. But the freezer on the other hand, will be above freezing.

    To fix this, there are garage refrigerator heater kits available, for just this situation. They are placed in the refridgerator compartment to heat the thermostat. This causes the compressor to run longer, and thus maintain the freezer temperature better. You could get one of these heaters or you could put an light bulb in the refrigerator to do the same thing as the heater. Remember to use a regular light bulb, and not a cfl or led light bulb, they won't generate enough heat. Also remove the light bulb or heater in the warm months unless you want a higher energy bill. Hope this helps you.

    I have cleaned the coils this morning, but the refrigerator section does not appear to cool. The freezer seems fine. This is model eti18PKXGWI ser no. 042 9086 eemingly c. 10 years old.


    Your freezer fan has probably quit. On most refrigerators the freezer is the only compartment actually cooled by the compressor and coils. The refrigerator compartment is feed cold air from the freezer compartment by way of a small fan. If you have you refrigerator turned all the way up and the door open you should here the fan running and be able to feel air moving somewere in the refrigerator compartment.

    Refrigerator wont stay cold.Freezer works fine,no frost buildup


    i replace the evaporator fan, this fan problem is hard to diagnose because the fan will spin but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and the refrigerator. The minimum cost to repair/replace is around $300.00
