Re: the water does not cool
The problem is in the compressor cooling unit, if you have no knowledge of electrical this is beyond your ability to service, it is of refrigerator technology, if so contact me and i will try to help you.

First, I'm Not a Welbilt tech.
* these "No fan" system (in the cold side) rely on the colder cooling coils to be colder than the bottom section. The box seals must be good otherwise warm air disrupts the process of cold air sinking to bottom and getting the whole box cold enough to keep the top section frozen.
* Check the back and bottom of ice box for blockage and dust build up.
* Check the bottom for a drip tray and check if it's full of water. water is okay as it means your defrost cycle is still working.
* Check the sides of box for cold / sweating. It is cool or maybe warm but not ice cold. Larger boxes will have warming areas near the door seal to prevent sweating. Warm but not hot.
* Was this unit moved around (like from another room) and plugged in right away? This things have oil in in them that has to settle after being moved. wait at least 1 hour prior to power up.
* Coils clean, I'm guessing you mean the Ice tray section. It should have a layer of frost on it after 15 mins of power. * Check thermostat. Rotate it all the way in both directions. you should hear a click sound at some point. Do this several times to confirm the click then set it to the middle.
* If any of the above items have problem then you will need service. (though at this price level it will cost more than a new unit.)
* Final, These small student fridges are very simple with a bare minimum of repairable parts. There are YouTube vids that may help but most refer to a unit that won't power up at all. But be sure you chack your warranty as they will probably give you a new unit if it's still on warranty.
You asked why your dehumidifier does not cool; it is not the purpose of a dehumidifier to cool the air going through it. It works like an air conditioner except the hot and cold air are not separated out. The cold [evaporator] coil is the first coil in the air stream where humidity [water] from the air collects just like it does on the outside of a glass of ice water. The air then goes through the hot [condenser] coil where it cools the hot refrigerant and reheats the air before being returned to the room.
If you have the patience to follow along the video, it explains the cycle.
We have had two different Electrolux French door refrigerators, over the past 2 years and the water never becomes cold. We were told this is because the the storage tank in this particular refrigerator is so small. You just have to drink your water with ice. Unfortunately, we have had recurrent problems with the ice maker as well! Sorry - but these refrigerators are very problematic and I would not recommend them to anyone!!!!!!
Clean refrigerator interior with a solution of hot water and baking soda
Clean the door seals
Remove breaker strips and check for wet insulation
To remove the breaker strips it is important
to bring them up to room temperature first. If they are too cold
they will be brittle and may crack. To warm the strips you can
open the freezer and allow it to come up to room temperature (wait
2 to 4 hours) or you can soak a towel in warm water and hold it
against the strips to warm them.
Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
