Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

1 Answer

I have a side-by-side Whirlpool fridge. Has begun to make loud machine type noise (like a lawnmower or weed eater) intermittently. Opening the freezer/fridge door and depressing the light swith does nothing - sound continues. ..Only cure is to unplug it, wait a few seconds to a minute or so, and replug. That stops the noise . When the noise is happening, I canot tell if the fan blades are on, but when it is unplugged, the blades look fine to me. After replugging, I could then tell that the fan blades are moving smoothly.What could the problem be?

When it is lcooling it has now begun tomake loud vibrations.

it is most likely from the frame of the fridge that the compressor is mounted on vibrating on the floor
I use two door wedges ( available from the hardware shop and I push one under either side a bit to get clearance from the floor
the noise stopped but the problem is that there is nothing available on the market to replace the wedges
rubber buttons under the plate worked but to stop the noise they tend to make the fridge unstable when opening the door or the front of the fridge has to be adjusted up so that the door self closes
try that and if it works the you are on the right rack
if not you may have to get the compressor rubber mounts replaced as they may have collapsed and allow the compressor to hit on the plate

What is the purpose of having two different size fuel lines in the fuel tank on a weed eater trimmer ?

Weed eaters have a diaphram operated carburetor instead of the float operated ones on a lawnmower. The bigger one is the fuel to the carburetor and the little one is the return to the tank from the carburetor.

I have weedeater but my fuel line ic corroded what type of line do I need to order

There is special silicone piping made for weed eaters and it is available at all lawnmower spares suppliers. Do not use conventional plastic tubing, it goes hard in fuel and will not follow the fuel as the machine is manipulated.

Looking for a manual for an electrolux lawnmower, also says poulan weed eater. Model # 386191. It does not seem to get enough gasoline.

You can try draining the carb and cleaning the main jet first?

If the carb is a bowl type also check the float to see if enough gas is flowing when the float hangs free. The carb should stop flowing then the float is lifted up and is sitting parallel to the carb body.

If you dont have a float type carb you can remove the carb body and check for dirt in the pickup tube as well as the main jet.

Here is a link to the poulan weed eater website:

Panel between fridge and freezer very hot and no sound at all

Hi: Its just a coincidence you noticed it then. It is usually hot. It's the reverse side of the refrigerant (the hot side.) If you lived in a humid area the fridge would sweat. Water would run down between the doors. I live in a dry climate so no worries. Older fridges used an electric heating element to keep them dry. They also had an energy saver switch to turn it off. As Whirlpool uses the hot side of the refrigerant they don't use additional power to run the heater. Actually the heater is called a mullion heater. Nothing is wrong with your fridge. I'll look over my shoulder for angry retailers. Hope this helps, Jeff.

Panel between fridge and freezer very hot and no sound at all

Dont know about the noise prob. but I can help with the over heating cabinet. Your condensing coil is dirty and needs cleaned. it is located under your refrigerator or behind the back panel. You should use a brush and vac. it out. Air must travel through the tubing freely in order to cool properly. It should be easy to find following the tubes coming out of your compressor.
