Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
My chefmate is **** because the internal fan is garbage, its cheap, it
doesn't work or give enough flow, try a higher flow unit. You can get
the 12v at tigerdirect.com with some high flow (AND LIGHTS :) ) for a
few bucks to save your 100 dollar investment. The removal of the orig
fan is easy. The evap is a good setup, but the cooling setup for it
seems to be sh*t. Cheap fans = cheap setup and this is why everyone
hates these units cause it can't pump the goods.
For the record my fan died, so my evap and fan froze over completely and spoiled my food and burned out the fan completely and probably helped to short it. I can get it going if I flicker the fan with my finger but she is dead and can't catch naturally. You could replace the chefmate fan with most computer fans too... fyi if you got a junk tower laying around.
While your at it clean the fans on the back and take off the back panel which kicks out the hot air from the hot flow. It helps if your unit is older (a year plus+ in a dorm is like 4 in a clean house lol)

the control panel is a p c board . maytag call's it a jazz board . and will need to be replaced . not a uncommon problem. also the water will work after tempts a stablized . with the new board . one board fits all but has to be programed for your model . this is a job for your appliance tec . the board comes with very good instructions . . if handy with electronics its not hard .. **** hope this helped ..
