Question about Whirlpool 24.8 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Bottom-Mount Freezer - White-on-White

1 Answer

We purchased the fridge in Jan a '11, today the freezer was not as cold as it should have been to the point the ice cream was soft. According to the manual, I increased the temp from 4 to 5. Since then the fan has not stopped running. Is it running because it is changing temp and if so, how long will it run for? Thank you

The fan should run cotinously until either the temperature is satisfied or the unit goes into defrost.
Changing from 4 to 5 is not a way to determine the temperature, rather you should use a good thermometer. Look for 0*F.-5*F.

What setting do I use to make the freezer freeze food


When you are freezing something, set your freezer on its highest setting. However, if you are going to leave your freezer empty for a long time, you should change the setting to a lower one. Here's a great tip for ice cream: place a tub of ice cream in a ziplock bag before putting it in the freezer; it prevents freezer burn. You know when your ice cream gets so cold, it's hard to scoop out? Doing this stops that, it's keeps the ice cream just soft enough for easy scooping!

Ice cream soft


Ice Cream is the hardest thing to freeze in a fridge /freezer unit , you need a least 0 deg F
to harden ice cream. If the ice cream was satisfactory before the repair and the stat is set to max. it is possible you have an over charger refrigeration circuit.

Gets only cool not cold


Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
makes 1 generous quart
4 egg yolks
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups half-and-half
1 vanilla bean or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup whipping cream
In a bowl, beat the egg yolks until blended and mix in sugar. Heat the half and half, stir into the egg yolks, and pour into the top part of a double boiler. Split the vanilla bean and scrape its seeds into the cream and add the bean as well. Place over simmering water and stirring constantly, cook until the mixture is custard-like and coats the spoon. Remove from heat and refrigerate until cold, or several hours. Remove vanilla bean. If using vanilla extract, stir it in at this point. Just before ready to churn; stir in the whipping cream. Freeze according to directions for your ice cream freezer.
