Question:

Freezer is working fine but the refrigerator is too warm. Hovering around 55 degrees. The compressor fan seems to be working. Maybe not working as efficiently?

Chris for model number ET22PKXWN10
Answer:

Hi Chris, Thank you for the question. I suggest checking the Door gasket first. Make sure there are no gaps that could let the warm air leak through. In the evening when the room is dark you can put a flash light in the fridge and see if there is any light coming through once the door is closed. If you see light then the gasket will need to be replaced. If the gasket is fine you can check the Evaporator Fan Motor at the back of the freezer. This part pulls air into the evaporator coils and then disperses the air in a continuous motion throughout the refrigerator and freezer.If this is not working then the cold air is not flowing in to the fridge section as it should. It can get build up of dust and dirt over time and sometimes needs a cleaning so the fan it working properly. Since you are back there it sometimes help to vacuum off the coils! Hope this helps!

Question:

My refrigerator is not cooling properly. I can feel the cold air being distributed in the freezer compartment but there is no air coming through the vents in the refrigerator section. The condensor fan seems to be spinning underneath the fridge. Which part would you consider needing to be replaced?

chris for model number ET22PKXWN10
Answer:

Hi Chris, Thank you for your inquiry. If your refrigerator is not cooling properly, there are a few parts you will need to check. You will need to check the defrost timer, the condenser fan motor kit, the capacitor, the evaporator fan motor kit, the cold control thermostat, the fresh food door gasket, the start relay cover and the light rocker switch. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Lately it wasn't cooling properly. I cleaned the coils which was very dirty and notice the fan wasn't turning. I turned the fan blade and it started turning. It has been working great for about 2 months, today it wasn't cooling properly again and the outsides was real warm. I checked the fan and it wasn't turning, i turned the fan lightly and it started spinning again, what part do i need to check or replace?

Scott for model number whirlpool ET18PKXAW01
Answer:

Hello Scott, thank you for contacting us. That would be a weak fan motor, you would just need to replace that to fix the issue. Good luck with the repair!

Question:

To determine which direction a motor is turning do i look at the shaft or do i look at the opposite end

George
Answer:

Hello George, thank you for contacting us. For the fan motor it would spin clockwise. Good luck with the repair!

Outer case of freezer was heating up, not making ice (sometimes) turned up thermostat several times (especially freezer)

I got the product very quickly. (thank you) Looked at online instructions that were quite vague. Pulled plug.Removed the holder for the fan motor slid it out to see what I had. Removed the mounting screws (3) and slid the motor an fan blade out. I made a cut between the wires and marked the "top" wire to motor to be sure to spin in right direction. Removing fan blade hold down clamp was NOT explained at all but I noted that the shaft on the motor was threaded, so I used pliars and held the shaft white un-screwing clamp. I cleaned the fan blades with degreaser and scraped edges of opening on holder opening. Make sure to use ALL the NEW parts included with this kit when re-installing. They send them for a reason. When slpicing and connecting wires it is a 50/50 shot if you don't mark before cutting. You can connect and try plugging fridge back for moment and make sure it is blowing OUT. Put everything back together and after turning DOWN the thermostats twice, fridge is back to usual. Ice maker is cranking out ice and outside case is cool to the touch.

Note: This can be a DIRTY job especially with 4 dogs in house. Fir and grease don't mix well

Fan was noisy - bearing had failed

It's self-explanatory. The procedure is obvious; it's just a little difficult. The only hard part is attaching the mounting brackets to the fan. If you can't tighten the mounting bolts, loosen them and reposition the brackets. You might end up mispositioning them at first, because they are hard to reach.

Condenser fan motor not working

I took the rear panel part-way off (it appears that the panel will not come off completely unless the ice-maker water line is disconnected. I didn't bother with that.) Removed the fan/motor bracket and detached the fan/motor. I simply cut the wires to the motor. I took the fan off and installed it on the new motor. I connected the new motor to the bracket and sliced the wires using wire nuts. Reinstalled everything and the motor works fine now.

Condenser fan making noise

I removed 7 screws hold the heavy cardboard cover on the rear of the fridge. The dificult part was taking the screws that hold the 3 fan motor braces on the fan out. After that it was a matter of making the wire conections and putting it back in. I did not have enough room to laydown to do the work, If i had it would have been a lot easier to see the screws that had to be removed. All in all an easy job, and the part was a perfect fit.

The door gasket was very hot which is caused by an overheated expansion line that runs along the area of the door gasket. This was caused by a failed cooling fan motor.

Pulled out the refrigerator and removed the two panels from the rear of the refrigerator. Removed the fan held in by four screws and unplugged the connector. Soldered on the original connector, installed the fan to the motor and re-installed the unit into the refrigerator. Then blew out and vaccumed the condenser coils.
