Whirlpool S20b American style f/f. The fridge is very cold and some foods are freezing.


Suggest lowering the refrigerator set point to a lower number such as 3. There is usually an indication of normal setting on the adjustments. Wait 24 hours and check the refrigerator compartment again. Use a thermometer to record the temperatures. The meat compartment will be normal just below freezing. If no success then read the following.

One reason that this occurs is that the unit is working near continuously to reach the freezer temperature. Another words the unit is not capable or cooling the freezer to the prescribed temperature. The result is the excess cooling eventually reaches the refrigerator section causing the refrigerator to freeze. The unit will if this is the case run nearly continuously. This situation is counter intuitive. Freezer not reaching set point, excessive cooling over cools refrigerator therefore refrigerator freezes.

The cause is either the freezer door/seal is not closing or sealing the freezer compartment or the compressor or defrost cycle is not functioning properly.

Check the freezer door seal using a strip of paper. Check to see if air is flowing from the vents in the freezer. Using a thermometer check the temperature of the freezer. Listen for and record if the compressor is running or not.

The normal freezer temperature is around '0' Fahrenheit. If no or little air is flowing from freezer air vents look for ice on the back wall. If ice is present it is likely the auto defrost cycle is not working. Attempt to defrost by hand which requires several hours with everything removed.

Check that lint and dust has not blocked the coils under the unit and that the lower fan is running. Usually warm air exits from the machine grill in the front. Remove the grill and check for air flow and debris buildup. Vacuum if necessary.

And unfortunately if the compressor runs continuously and no air blockage underneath would indicate that the cooling capacity is reduced requiring a major service or replacement.

Hope this helps?

Hello, We have a Whirlpool Gold bottom freezer


I don't know about Whirlpool refrigerator freezers, but my Amana has a temperature control in the freezer that regulates the overall cooling, and then the control in the refrigerator compartment controls how much of the total cooling is sent to the refrigerator section. My advice would be to lower the temperature setting of the freezer, and see if the temperature lowers in the refrigerator as well. Also, you can go to the Whirlpool website and they can help you further.

Freezer not cold enough to maintain ice and food


  • When your refrigerator isn't cooling your food and drink items, first check that the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet. If you recently plugged in the refrigerator for the first time, it will take approximately 8 to 12 hours before the refrigerator is cool. Even though the refrigerator is cool in this time frame, you shouldn't place the refrigerator to a colder setting until the initial cool down stage, which takes 24 hours.

    If the refrigerator has been running for 24 hours, you can adjust the refrigerator to a lower setting. The control panel is located in upper portion of the refrigerator compartment. Press the up arrow button to set the refrigerator to a higher setting, which will decrease the temperature of the refrigerator compartment.
  • Door
  • If the temperature control is correctly set but the refrigerator compartment still does not cool down, check the refrigerator door. First, remove any food or drink items that are preventing the door from fully closing. In addition, make sure all of the drawers are fully closed, as they may keep the door from closing.

    Next, clean off the gasket with warm, soapy water and a sponge. Rinse the soapy water off of the gasket. If the gasket is not clean, it will not create a seal with the refrigerator.

    Another reason the refrigerator is not cooling down may be because the refrigerator door is opened too frequently or left open for a long period of time. Pay attention to your use of the door and try to shorten the amount of time the door is opened.
  • Other Causes
  • Your Jenn-Air refrigerator might not cool down for other reasons. If you have recently added food to the refrigerator, the temperature of the food may have an effect on the temperature of the refrigerator. The temperature in the refrigerator will adjust after the food sits in the unit for an hour or more.

    You may have obstructed the air flow on the inside of the refrigerator with the placement of your food. The rear air grille is located under the crisper drawers. Move any food items away from the rear air grille to increase the air flow through the refrigerator.
  • If those thing above did not solve your problem you better check and replace the relay and compressor and it will be good as new. Thanks

    The inside of the refrigerator is not staying cold. The freezer does stay cold. How do I fix the inside temperature so it will keep the food cold?


    If any part of the automatic defrosting system isn't working, the evaporator will turn into an iceberg and no cold air will circulate into the lower compartment.

    Possible causes in that case could be the defrost timer, the defrost thermostat ("bimetal"), the defrost heater, the defrost thermal fuse (if there is one), or the wiring and plugs connecting them.

    Removing the back panel of the freezer compartment should reveal the iceberg and allow you to defrost it with a hair dryer or fan. Then you can get at the parts to test them (except the defrost timer, which may be down by the compressor).

    New whirlpool refrig. freezer ok at 0 but refrig


    The freezer get the first crack at cooling and combination units have a fan and adjustable vents to steal some of the cooling capacity for the refrigerator. The vent are normally located in the back of the refrigerator compartment and with these, you can balance the cooling capacity between freezer and fridge. I recommend you swap your thermometer back and forth until you get the balance you want; typically the freezer should be at 5 degrees F or below and the fridge at 35-40 degrees F. Adjusting the control for temperature and having the vents set to supply the cold air you want in each compartment should give you the range you want in each.

    Cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.


    Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
    Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
    Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

    The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
    controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
    knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
    cabinet.
    To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
    cooling quickly;
    • Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
    or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
    (maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
    the graduated control dial.
    • Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
    hours.
    • When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
    the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
    o'clock position on the graduated blue control
    dial.
    • Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
    consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
    • Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
    between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
    • To maintain temperatures ranging between
    34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
    thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
    o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
    • To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
    control knob to the "0" position.
