Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have a Kenmore/Frigidaire side-by-side that shut itself off while I was gone for a few days. When I returned the frozen food and ice had melted and food in the refrigerator was at about 50 degrees. I could not get it to restart even by setting the temperature to coldest in both sections. I left it that way and went to bed. When I awoke, the compressor and fan were audible. The unit seems to be fully operational again. What could cause this?


Answers :

Check and see if there is a lot of heat at the compressor area. Also check the emullion strip seperating the freezer and fresh food section. Where the gaskets close it this strip hot. If it is the condenser fan motor isn't circulating enough air over compressor to keep compressor running at normal intervals.
You say its operational again, does that include the cooling as well, or is it running and not cold. if its running and cold, and it was not running when it was previously discovered warm, then your problem is likely with the cold temperature control that you adjusted to get it going. When you first adjusted both controls to the coldest setting, did the unit kick on then or shortly thereafter? then absolutely that is your problem.

Icemaker inop I just replaced my water filter last week on my Whirlpool Gold side by side. After a week went by I noticed that my icemaker wasn't making ice. The best I can remeber water was still coming out of the door. But I didn't turn the filter all of the way so when I noticed the icemaker not making ice I check the filter and it was loose so I turned it on and could hear the water going in and I had to drain the door water spout until I got a full stream out of it.

I have a Whirlpool ED22DQXEW01 regrigerator. If I turn the Refrigerator temperature control (not the freezer control) to the COLDEST setting, the refrigerator side freezes and the freezer is too cold. If I turn it up just a VERY small amount the freezer gets warm enough to melt everything and the Refrigerator is way too warm.


This sounds like a faulty cold control. ... Whirlpool Gold White-on-White 21.9 cu. ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Ice and Water GD2SHAXLQ Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a Jenn-Air side by side frig. The freezer side cools too cold, the frig side not enough. 2 weeks ago I took all the food out of freezer and noticed ice build up on back. I unplugged unit, let it defrost overnight, and vacuumed coils in back. The next morning I plugged it back in and went to work. When I ret'd, the frig temp was 38' and freezer was making ice. I waited 2 days, then put food in again. Today, I noticed temp in frig is 48'. I don't see any ice build up. Suggestions? Mod


If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster proble ... Jenn-Air JCD2389G Side by Side Refrigerator

Can you please help, could it be the temperature sensors or could it be the Defrost Heater & Bracket Assembly? Because I do not see any defrost heater sensor where the coils are inside of the refrigerator when the cover is removed.
