Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Whirlpool ED22PQ, 21.7 cubic feet. Freezer is not cold. Sounds like something is trying to "click on", but nothing happens.


Answers :

Open both doors and check to see if the center divide between the the freezer and fridge is warm/hot to touch. If so, you need a new cooling motor/fan. Motor should come with new fan and can be purchased for around $60. Pretty easy to change yourself. In cover on back/bottom of unit. Have exact model and changed that part 6 months ago.
Hi
\015\012
\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. In a self-defrosting freezer, poor cooling often results from a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. To access these coils you need to remove panel inside the freezer. If there is any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, ceiling, or floor it’s sign of frost build-up and it means a problem with the self-defrosting system.
\015\012
Freezers should self-defrost three to four times in 24 hours. In case a component in the self-defrosting system fails, the freezer continues to try to cool, instead. Eventually, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There is some cooling as the coils are frozen. But with no air flow over the coils, the cooling is quite limited and the freezer isn't cold as normally it should be.

\015\012
To check the de frosting system problem, you need to remove all of the perishable food from the freezer, turn the thermostat to off, leave the door open for 24 to 48 hours to "manually" defrost the freezer. After the frost and ice build-up is completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If it is cooling properly, it indicates a problem with one of these components in the self-defrosting system:

\015\012
    \015\012
  • The defrost timer – To test this, manually advance the defrost cycle. The unit should advance itself out of the defrost cycle in about 45 minutes.
  • \015\012
  • The defrost thermostat – This allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on.
  • \015\012
  • The defrost heater – You can test this for continuity using an electrical meter.
\015\012 Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
\015\012Thanks

MY SXS FRIDGE(MODEL # GD5THGXKS03) HAS STOPPED COOLING ON BOTH SIDES. THE MOTOR IS RUNNING, AIR IS BLOWING(NOT HOT, BUT OT COLD EITHER) I VACUUMED OUT THE UNDERSIDE HOPING THAT THE BUILD UP MAY HAVE BEEN AN ISSUE AND MIGHT NOT BE TOO LATE. NO HELP.

I have a Maytag side by side, MSD2434GEW, about 8 years old, the fridge side appears to be working fine, the freezer side is about the same temp as the fridge and not cold enough to freeze anything. It also makes a new clicking sound about every 5-10 minutes like something clicks on and then off again. Does this sound like something simple and what would it be, or is it time to look for a new fridge?

KSRS25ILWH83, Kitchenaid manufacturered 10/03. Is hs been making clicking sounds for about 5 days. They are not constant and may be many hours apart.

I have an old Kenmore 26 side by side that dispenses water and ice. At one point it stopped producing ice and dispensing water. I changed the inline filter and it worked perfectly. Happened again shortly after, changed filter again. This time nothing. Switched to different filter. Still nothing. I can hear it sounding like it is trying to fill to make ice but nothing. The water dispenser tries to work but nothing. the water from the wall is on. Where else could it be blocked?

My GE Profile PDF 22mis/sis fridge was unplugged for a couple of weeks, and when I plugged it in today, there is a constant clicking sound from the compressor (?) in the back. The light inside the fridge comes on, but no cooling happens. I tried unplugging and plugging again, as well as leaving the fridge plugged in (with the constant clicking sound), but nothing changes. Is there anything I can do or do I need to call a repairman?

The compressor will not stay on. Will not stay cold. Every few minutes you hear a click and the compressor will kick on but about 6 seconds later it clicks again and shuts off. The fan continuously runs. We Cleaned all dust and coils. Nothing is hot in the back(coils,compressor etc) and there is no condensation back there either. Do you think this a bad relay switch or something more serious like the compressor needing replacement. Thanks

My water dispenser stopped working. When I try dispensing water, I hear a clicking sound, but no water comes out. Is something frozen inside? When this has happened in the past, I've emptied the ice holding compartment and the water dispenser would eventually start working again. This time, it still doesn't work. I've read on here that something may be frozen and I can defrost with hairblower and lower freezer setting and raise regrigerator setting. Where do I blow to defrost?
