Question about Whirlpool ED2FHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer is producing"snow" and freezer burning everything

I have a Whirlpool side by side that is just about 3 years old. Just recently the bottom of my freezer is filled with a solid block of ice and all the shelves, and ice maker are coverd with what my kids call snow. The food in the freezer also tastes frost burned. I have defrosted the freezer, cleared the drain (I think) and it worked good for about 3 days and the problem started again. Can I fix this? Thanks.

AFTER A DEFROST,HAVE A GOOD LOOK AT THE DOOR RUBBER. IT MUST BE 100% SEALED FOR A FREEZER. (SHOULD ALSO HEAR A SLIGHT VACUME WHEN DOOR IS SHUT WHEN UP NTO TEMP).ALSO MAKE SURE MOTOR IS SWITCHING OFF AT +/- 20C (TEMP).IF ALLOWED TO RUN CONTINUOUSLY TEMP WILL PULL DOWN TO CREATE EXCESS FROST.

Only had bottom freezer refrigerator couple of months, last night looked like it snowed in side freezer, all frosted up


Good day,
If it is under 1 year old, then it is under warranty. Sounds as if the defrost system failed, but you will need to call your selling dealer for a warranty service call. It should cost you nothing.

Refrigerator and freezer quit working.


That sounds like it could be the problem. The common causes are a bad defrost heater, defrost timer or a defrost thermostat.

Sideby side whirlpool- 3 years old- ice maker stopped working 3 weeks ago. today everything in freezer is melting


Verify condenser fan is running. Check evaporator coils for frost. IM will quit if freezer does not go below 5 degrees. The cooling was slowly dieing and finally warmed enough to defrost the food.

Ice forming in freezer refrigerator not getting cold


Replace your heater and thermostat behind the back wall of the freezer. the air will not flow from the freezer to the fridge because of all the forming ice. Also replace the defrost timer. take your model number into a local parts store and they can get you the parts. This is very common!!!!! But pretty easy to do.

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..
