20 Most Recent Westinghouse WRS6R3EW 36" 25.8 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/ Built-In Water & Ice Dispenser &... Questions & Answers


Some fridges have an internal fan that sounds like the compressor. If the compressor is running and the fridge is any good the inside will quickly cool and the condenser will become warm. If the outside gets warm but the inside doesn't get cool it is possible the defrost heater is permanently switched on because of a fault.

If the compressor is running and nothing is happening the fridge has probably lost it's refrigerant gas. Moving fridges can upset them and it is unwise to switch on straight away - they really need to settle for at least 4 hours. Switching on too soon can damage a lubricant deprived compressor.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Insert a pin in the slot under the lower edge of the trim, You should see 2 small holes, that will release the lock tabs, from there you can just pull the frame toward you, Inside you will be able to see the problem.

I think you may have to remove the door gasket, if you look behind the gasket you will see the screws holding it and the inner door liner in place, both should be removed and you will then have access to the handle screws from within the door.

There isn't one, only the Owner manual. It is a fridge and freezer, and with very little differences, they are all the same.

  • Most likely the compressor is attempting to start and shutting off on the overload sensor. The only way to be certain requires a meter with amperage sensing to confirm the electrical load. But, if it hums and clicks after a few seconds - and gets very hot to the touch - then you may assume the compressor is trying to start, but not running. The start relay can cause this, which is inexpensive to replace. But a bad compressor winding or compressor motor bearings can also give the same symptoms. Only a meter to test each items will give accurate results.

I had the same problem; the top fridge compartment was warming up to 14C while the freezer compartment was starting to defrost (frozen stuff was starting to become soft. I took the rear wall off the freezer compartment and found it all iced up. I defrosted it with a blower heater then powered it back up. It all worked fine for a month when the same thing happened. I figured that the defrost cycle wasn't working. I located the defrost timer on the rear right-side of the fridge. I rotated it several times and found that the fridge was turning on and off. I rotated it until the fridge turned off. I waited 5 minutes then stuck my head into the freezer compartment and felt the rear wall at the bottom where he drain is; it felt warm so I guessed the defrost heater element was ok. I ordered a defrost timer and installed it. I haven't had a problem since.
