Question about Westinghouse Refrigerators
SOURCE: water dispenser
wow that's agood one!!!! theres a short for sure, just a matter of where. somehow your energizing both sides of water valve at once, sounds as if it would be behind the dispensor, at the switches. would remove the dispensor cover and have a look for a bad switch or exposed wire

the mother board located inside the lower rear portion of the unit is bad,if you have recently had lights blow out this can cause a surge and ruin the mother board,also if there are relays clicking and lights are blinking dimly this is a good sign the board is bad

the thermostat has broken down and needs to be replaced,, normaly when they brake down they just stay in the closed poshion so the fridge freezes up get a new one fitted and all will be well

Testimonial: "Thanks for you fast response, very helpful. I thought this may be the problem but wasnt sure. Are the thermostats easy to replace? Could I DIY, How?"
This is a bad design flaw, the fridhe is cooled by fan forced air from the freazer. Two ducts vent into and out of the fridge fron the freezer and ice can block them up (which you can find if you take off all the plastic at the top and back of the fridge).
Hence, when they block up, the frindge does not cool, hence the thermostat tells the fridge to keep running which makes the freezer colder and colder, making the blockage worse.
You need to not only fully defrost the freezer (which can be done quicker by removing the plastic panel in the back of the freezer and using a hairdryer) BUT also fully dry the fridge before turning it back on.
To stop it happening again, avoid puting unvovered liquids or hot items in the fridge. Also avoid leaving the fridge and freezer doors open for long especially in humid conditions. As I said, it's a bad design.

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.
