Question about Westinghouse Refrigerators

Open Question

Our Westinghouse Virtuoso commenced beeping in the early hours of this morning and the freezer section has all but thawed (it's probabaly around 5 degrees at present). We have tried using the 'quick freeze' option, no joy. We have also turned the powere off and on in an attempt to enable the fridge to reset, still no joy. We have decreased the freezer set temparature from - 15 to - 22 degrees, nil result! The controls for this unit are an LED display on the outside of the freezer door and we cannot see what else we can do to make the freezer compartment operational once again. We would be very thankful for any advice. Thank you.

Because it stopped cooling so fast, over night, I would make sure the compressor is running and the condenser fan motor that sits next to it.

SOURCE: fridge condensation - freezer thawing

OK now I'm wondering are theses numbers your getting 4 -9 the actual temps of the refrigerator and the freezer? and do they feel this cold and correct to you? I know the refrigerator side shouldn't be below 34 or so and definitely not below 32. If this is correct and the numbers are not settings but temps. (Now if you have a touch pad its electronic. If it has knobs it has a separate defrost and thermostat and are electro-mechanical)
If electronic Your control board and possibly defrost control are out.
It would more likely be the sensors going to the board(s) It will both sensors have the possibility of causing your problem. 1 will control the run of the compressor (and this one could and probably is connected to the inside coil) and 1 will control the air damper tween the refdg and freezer compartments, and may turn on the inside fan operation too.

(this would be my first suspect if these are degrees numbers). Look at the thermostat control see if it is attached to the indoor coil (usually the tube leavign the indoor section. If its not attached its not sensing the coil temp and when goes into defrost wala its not senmsing temps like its designed to do. Look for a broken clip or possible a plastic wire tie that holds this sensor in place.

Please get back to me with what you see - find on this look up.

SOURCE: Westinghouse fridge: no cool air circulating inside

Art, I need to get a little more information from you. Does the condenser fan under the refrigerator seem to work and blowing warm air from below and or behind the refrigerator? The motor feeling warm is OK. Only when too hot to touch on top. Needs to cycle also. When you opened the freezer did you hear the fan blowing? Thanks, JT

Your model will and may take extensive diagnostics. You know there is no simple answer to this question and I will not guess. Do you have the sevice manual availible? I do if you need but from the length of your message it appears to me that you want and will need help. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Westinghouse virtuoso the alarm keeps going off fridge not cooling freezer is not freezing. Help!


Try adding refrigerant or freon. The Alarm just warns you that it's not cooling or freezing and your food is thawing out. Check the fan if you hear the fan running it should be the coolant needs to be put in it. Or it could possibly be both.

Westinghouse virtuoso fridge is freezing. adjusting temp on door panel doesn't work.


Is the fan operating in the freezer section? If not there is your problem. It the fan is working then it could be the damper or the temperture control.

I have a Westinghouse RV525V-R*4 Virtuoso Fridge (Electronic Display) which beeped twice and gave an error today on the display - Cnn Err. The dispay was showing the temp in degrees F. Tried everything...


I wasn't keen on the 48hr period so I tried a work around. I disconnected the front display which reset the alarm in question. To disconnect the display you have to disconnect the wires that supply this power. This is located underneath the top plastic hinge cover for the freezer. Remove the cover

Westinghouse virtuoso fridge/freezer has stopped cooling. How do we check the fuses etc? seals on the doors are all fine.


I have the same fridge (stainless steel virtuoso) and when the fridge section stops cooling you have to turn power off. Then remove everything from the freezer including the shelf. Next get a pointy object and remove the two plastic screw covers located on the back inside plastic freezer panel, Next remove the two phillips head screws securing the panel in place. Next (and this is a little tricky) get two solid forks and lever the back interior panel off, thereby exposing the cooling system of the fridge. Next get a hairdryer and completely defrost this item, and then reassemble. Switch power back on and your fridge will be fixed, and cooling like a champion! plus you have saved hundreds by not paying ripoff "technicians" I have to do this every six or seven weeks because of the high humidity here in Darwin, the freezer is "frost free" but the cooling system still ices up, and this is what blocks airflow and stops the fridge cooling.

It won't be the defrost timer, unusual, it will be the defrost element inside the freezer section behind the back panel or a shorted defrost klixon.
