Hello Ron Carlson

Page 6 of 6...

Pretty straight forward refrigerator!

Although I agree with the first answer you got from Todd Marr...a lot of available volunteers here have been around a lot of blocks...
Can call out the Whirlpool & Frigidaire units you share parts with... and how to very cheaply you can
test various parts to bring you to your very quick victory...

I'm just saying, ice-maker, defrost issues, warm refrigerator side... Fast frost build-up... puddles?

If you'll pardon the pun ...
FROST FREE REFIGERATOR/FREEZERS are pretty cool...!

I have a Whirlpool Refigerator (double door, freezer over cooler). Its model number is WBM35 IX (made in 2003). Lately I have problems in the fridge. The freezer freezes the items. But there is no...


My guess is the fan has gone on it. Mine did the same thing. The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer compartment via a fan that is usually in the back of the freezer. It's not a hard replacement, if you're tech-savvy (took me about 1/2 hr.) and the part will cost you about 40 to 70 dollars, depending on where you buy it (priced mine out at $70, I think, but found a local guy who sold me one for $40. It's called an "Evaporator Fan" and I believe this link will show you a possible replacement for it (The crappy part is that you need to take the old one out to look at it to be sure).http://tinyurl.com/3so7a86 Good luck.

Refigerator is not cooling. Freezer is working


You didn't provide a model number, so it's not easy. In most of modern refrigerators, the fridge side draws cold air from the freezer. Look for obstructions of the air vents.

Freezer works fine but the refigerator does not get cool



The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Whirlpool Gold GD5SHAXLQ02- Serial number SP3131657 just stopped cooling. Neither the fridge and freezer seems to be cooling. This unitl is about 7 years old.


Hi!!

Check
temp. control knobs,
Small fan in freezer
Remove freezer back panel (where the little fan is) and check for iced evaporator coil, if so, unplug unit and use a heat gun or hair dryer to melt ice, make sure the air duct going to the fridge is clear. Once this is done, restart unit.

If evaporator is not covered w/ice, then you may have a freon leak, Call a Service Center to get a repair estimate.

Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck

Jenn Air JCD2389GTB side-by-side refrigerator freezing & cooling


Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Frigidaire FRS23H5AS refrigerator - freezer not cold


Humming noise would be your compressor going bad. The noise from the fan is because they are over working to try and keep everything cool
