Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

Looking to get to the root of this issue. I have a whirlpool 18.2 cu ft refrigerator / freezer. I noticed this morning that everything in the freezer was unthawing and the refrigerator was over 40 degrees. This is what I found when I took the inside of the freezer apart.

    Thanks David. I thawed it out and the ice ball starts forming in the same place within minutes of being plugged in.

Check to see if there is any ice built up on the back wall of the freezer. If so thaw the ice and take the back wall out of the freezer. next check to see if the fan is running in the freezer (evaporator fan) This fan is what circulates the air from the freezer to the fridge. If it does run then you have a defrost problem (if ice is on the coils and back wall). Then replace defrost timer, heater, and thermostat.

The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.

    Look for obstruction at the drain tray for the freezer. Common to have plastic wrap sucked into that area.Or gunk in the drain line. Blow through line to insure the gunk is not an issue.

    Whirlpool side by side Refrigerator not cooling, two -- where -18 temp used to be.


    the fact the bowl was filled with water and that you said the inside of the freezer was coated with ice, indicates a failure of the defrost system.
    now the ice has gone, reset the temps and wait to see what happens
