Hi i have a wirlpool fridge the freezer and fridge works fine but it seems the motor keep on running and dont switch off or is it the fan that is running please help


Hello Sandra;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You just have a simple operational and maintenance issue.
Neither your compressor or fans should run continuously.

First, you need to clean your condensing coil. You did not provide a model number so you either have a flat cooling coil in the front bottom, or a canister type in the back right hand side. This coil dissipates the heat. If it is plugged up your compressor and fans will run trying to keep up with the unit temperature settings. This can make a difference as much as 40 degrees. The toe plate, bottom front is either held in place with a screw on each end. If no screws, there is a clip on each end. Just pull and it will pop out.

Second, You only have only one cooling source and that is your freezer. The freezer will try to satisfy itself first before the fresh food section. If you set the temperature controls beyond the unit design settings your compressor and fans will keep running. Set your freezer to -2 or +2 Deg. F., and set your fresh food section to 35-40 Deg. F.

Third, Check your door gaskets. make sure there are no gaps.

Freezer ok, fridge not cooling


That could be the motor up in the freezer is not working or it could be a defrost problem. If you see frost on the back side of the freezer that is most likely a failed defrost circuit. If you cannot hear the fan motor or possibly a fan switch mounted in the door jamb. Sometimes the drain can stop p and water puddles between the top and fresh food bottom. Forms a slab of ice and blocks the cold air from getting to the fresh food section.

The refrigerator and the freezer are staying too cold. The temp controls are at the lowest possible and still things in fridge freeze. I can hear the compressor cycle of for a while then on for a while....


Hi,

things: Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.
Hope this will help out.....

The freezer section of the fridge works but the regular side is not cooling sufficient enough to keep the food from perishing quickly


Possible that the vent is getting choked wwith frost and so the fan is not able to blown well tothe fridge to keep the temperature up.
So the possible failure of the defrost timer / heater or the thermostat is possible which might make the compressor to keep running and the frost to build up.

Check the plastic air deflector at the top rear of the frig had been knocked off. I replaced it and all is OK. I thought you might add this to your suggestion list. As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control, which is now functioning properly.

Food at bottom of fridge freezes


Bad cold control switch.
The cold control switch should open when the set temperature has been reached. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and freeze items in the refrigerator section.
If the control is not closing, the compressor and all fans will stop operating. Check the control for continuity. If you don't feel comfortable checking this yourself, get a repair person out to check it out.
Hope this helps.
