In my opinion, since your going for the fast freeze mode, your freezer sets to its lowest operating temperature to fast tract the freezing process.

and about the noisy clicking sound it is probably a thermostat or relays depending on your system which starts and stop the compressor.

i think your freezer is just doing fine.

It sounds to me like it is the rear brd failing..this brd runs basically yhe whole show and the sound you are hearing is probably 1 of the relays starting to stick on the brd. They are very easy to replace although dependant on which one you required the prices range from £80 to £200. The other problem it could be is the icemaker if you have one. There is a solonoid in the rear behing the bucket that changes the ice from crushed to blocks this can sometimes overheat and activate on it's own causing this noise. easily repalced and only costs a few pounds. Let me know and i'll give you some better instructions on what to do.

From room temperature if just plugged in rule of thumb is 24hrs to properly reach temp. Place a glass half full of water in shelf when is frozen solid the unit should be plenty cold enough to keep food. It is always a good idea to get a small fridge thermometer to make sure of temp.

This is an indication of a sealed system (freon) problem

That is not a valid model number. I would suggest calling your local appliance parts retailer to get the gasket

What you are describing is the normal sounds it makes when it goes into defrost. The frost melts, and the resulting water will fall onto the heater which then makes your hissing noise. You dont mention that there is a problem, such as not cold or water leaking on your floor, so it sounds like all is working as it should. But you also mention you taped IT ( what is it?) to the wall in a circle.

Hi! Yes, it surely is clogged. Dirt build up inside the tube is possible and the only thing that can resolve this is by draining the tube by cleaning. You will need an experience techinician to resolve this for this requires a hands on fixing. It will require a vacuum for freezer and other stuffs for cleaning the freezer. Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya!

Go buy some charcoal and call some friends.... Sorry. Transfer as much as possible to neighbors freezers. If that's not possible keep the freezer as full as possible. Solids hold their cold much better than air.

Could be many things. Remove the thermostat control and cross the wires. did it go on? Replace the thermostat.
Take a multi-testor and check for power at the motor/ compressor. If yes- the compressor motor is bad. Probably fatal for the unit. If not- why is there no power? Follow the supply wires back up line until you find power. replace the part that has failed.

Good luck

Well, its good that it is still cooling, however since you cannot adjust the temps, you do still have a problem, and one that may include the unit fails to cool properly.

I have seen this a few times on whirlpool refrigerators. There is likely a high voltage board mounted inside a grey or white box mounted next to the compressor. The noise is usually eminating from this box, and replacing the board will solve all of your problems most likely.

chance are that the frost has turned to ice if the unit started to defrost then got cold again.do a full defrost and then try starting from warm....

The defrost drain outlet is stopped up and freezing over.
Remove the bottom basket.
Turn the freezer off.
Look in the center of the freezer just below the cooling coils in the bottom of the freezer.
You will see a water drain trough.
It will be full of ice.
Use a hair dryer to thaw the ice and remove it.
The drain will become exposed.
It must be thawed also,so that you can pour water through it and the water goes all the way to the drain pan underneath.

May first guess is that you have not changed the batteries. Second guess send me the model # so I can look up the wiring dia and give it a shot.

Whirlpool... | Answered on Sep 13, 2010

the clicking sound is normal it sounds like valve operating or you may have the water pressure up to hgh for the unit. for your second problem is the fan operating inthe fridge this stops the cold air to transfer from the freezer, also check the operation of the damper this is the flap the controls the amount of air into the fridge this is uasualy controled by a by metalic thermostat or motor. thirdly which mostly common is the defrost heater is not working signs are frozer evaperator in freezer and air duct the checks are defrost timer, heater element terminatinion thermostat and someunits have thermofuses goodluck
