Whirlpool gold french door bottom freezer ices up and causes fridge to run warm. I have taken it apart and defrosted several times. Fan works, drain is not clogged. What could be the cause of this?


The self defrost function is not working. Depending on the age and model you have a heater, bi-metal defrost thermostat.....and either an electronic control or defrost timer. One of these parts has failed. Need a model number to tell you more.

My Whirlpool Gold Series Fridge is not cold in Fridge part, but is still working in freezer part. What might the remedy be?


Could be a few things. One could be a bad evaporator fan motor in the freezer section. The fan motor will only come on when the light switch is closed so make sure you hold down the light switch when you check it. Could be a defrost timer or defrost bimetal. You will know because you will have ice buildup on the back wall inside the freezer. Also could be icebuildup in the return air duct. They are located under the drawers in the refrigerator.

Freezer works great, but refrigeration section stopped working


Check the door seals on fridge and freezer to make sure there are NO leaks.
Try manually adjusting air flap that controls air from freezer to fridge, the flap may be frozen or the actuator that controls the flap may be faulty.

Whirlpool Gold freezes up to frige side


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Freezer frosts up and then the refer doesn't get cold air. I have completely defrosted it twice. Model # ED25DSXDN03


You have either a bad defrost heater,defrost thermostat or defrost timer.
The defrost timer is located in the control panel box in the fresh food section. The heater and thermostat are in the freezer section behind the rear panel.
On this brand it is usually the defrost timer.

Whirlpool gold:upper half of refridgerator side not cold


Either the evap fan has a problem, or the defrost system has failed. You should never see frost in the freezer section as the defrost sensor should sense that the coils need to be defrosted before that much frost accumulates.

Unplugging to clean out helped because the frost got a chance to melt away.

If you find the evap motor is running, then the things to check are the defrost sensor, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater.
