My refrigerator is not getting cold


Is the freezer freezing? Do you hear a fan motor running inside the freezer? If the freezer fan is working and the freezer is still getting cold, do you see allot of frost on the back wall of the freezer?

Freezer not cooling at all - t-stat or compressor would be where to check next

No fan running in freezer and freezer is cold - bad evaporator fan motor.

If fan is running and you have heavy frost on the back wall of freezer - unit is not defrosting. could be defrost timer or defrost t-stat

your evaporator coil in the rear area behind the freezer back panel is frozen over with ice and the coil can no longer deliver cold air due to ice blocking the air flow from the evaporator fan,remove this rear panel,defrost it with a hair dryer,check the defrost heating coil for continuity,they go bad regularly,if not the heater coil under the evaporator coil,it may be the defrost timer in the refrigerator section of the unit that powers the defrost coil that needs replacement

Freezer section not freezing


If you only had ice buildup in one section of the evaporator you have a weak/inefficient compressor.
You need a new compressor or a new refrigerator.

Whirlpool Model # GB2SHTXTS00 refrigerator not cooling. it has bottom freezer...coils in the freezer are icing up... I checked the heater, and stat ohmed ok.i ran the service test everything appeared...


Sounds like the defrost timer is not tracking the time properly. The unit needs to defrost once every 6-8 hrs. in order to work. Make sure the inside (evaporator) fan is running ok. If it rund for a few days and then warms up in the refrigerator section (coil iced), then the defrost timer is the culprit.

Freezer not working


Hi, are you getting ice or frost build up.
The most common part that goes bad on these are the defrost heaters. THe defrost heater is below the evaporator coil and usually has a blue and pink wire to it. Test the heater for continuity. If it tests open, replace the heater. If it tests closed, check continuity on the bi-metal stat located on top the evaporator fast to the coil. The bi-metal stat has to be tested cold. Again, if it tests open, replace it.
If both of these test ok. you wil need to replace the defrost control.
Please let me know if this has helped you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

My freezer stopped freezing a couple of days ago,coil frozen up i defrosted it and now no air is blowing into refrigerator part both freezer and refrigerator are not cold


if the fan is not running then most likely the defrost stat has failed but you should also check the fan for continuity if you have continuity the fan should be ok you can find a defrost stat on parts advantage.com
