Hi Yamanayeemi,
"Dont forget to rate my solution to your STOVE!"- Fixya or helpful?
Before attempting any testing or repairs. unplug your first.! avoiding an electrical shock hazard.
It might likely be your water inlet valve that is bad , corroded or clogged.
The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink).
Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.
The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires.
The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors.
Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).
Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting).
Place a probe on each terminal.
The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Does my suggestions help to solve your problem?

    Try to change the LIMITER Item # 704502, the price $52.85 on that should correct the high Temp you experienced.

Whirlpool side by side Fridge Freezer S20BRBB20

Your fridge is simply not defrosting itself or moving air off the freezer coil. Try defrosting it and make sure the fan is operating. If the brains have been replaced already i do not think you should have to deal with them again unless consumer reports suggest otherwise.

I lost my label tag for whirlpool refridgerator. I remember the year was made 1992 but don't remember the model number. It is a side by side fridge. Can someone provide a possible model number for me?...

Hey John,

Do you have your manual? There are about 5 billion Fridges with the exact measurements you gave! You know its a whirlpool from the 90's....have you gone to the whirlpool web site and checked there?

This is what I found there:

Whirlpool frig. Freezer warm, frig seems ok.

Since the temperature is already 40°, the cold control is satisfied and will not run. Thus the freezer will warm up to 40°.

Fridge and stove side by side

I would get a piece of styrofoam insulation like they use on houses. It's about 1 inch thick and you can cut it to fit and paint it to match. Other insulation solutions should be available at Lowes etc.

Hello arizonascrat

You said You just bought a whirlpool gas stove, but it is set up for natural gas and you need it to be for propane gas. How do you do this? Do you have to purchase anything, if so where? Whirlpool GR 465 LXLS THANKS, in advance, Norma

They make an LP conversion kit What you are asking and it should cost only about $20 dollars.
One Model # is, 8576846A
Now some places have it using different numbers!
Make sure to ask if this is for you range. I believe on kit fits all Whirlpool Gas products.
We have sponsors here on fixya that you can order this from.
One I believe is the repair clinic.
Thank You for using Fixya.
Please remember to leave me a solved rating!

The missus destroyed the fridge door drink shelf , its a whirlpool WRX38RWH6 . thanks for any help

A whirlpool dealer should be able to order the part you need short of replacing the whole door. Give them the model and serial number of your product. Whirlpool also provides a 800 help line which should be listed in your owners manual. Give the girl a break as things happen.
