Whirlpool Refrigerators - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Hi, this problem will be with either the starter for the compressor or could actually be the compresser itself. Both of these can be replaced but it is not something any one should do unless they have done this before and know what they are doing.

It sounds as if one of 2 things could be your problem. In the freezer compartment remove ice maker. Remove the rear panel around condenser fan. If the fan is running then you have ice build up. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to remove all the ice. Take a piece of#14 bare wire to clean drain hole.With the fridge off pour some hot water in the drain. It will either be the fan or ice buildup.

if you pull out the vegetable drawer, you will notice a vent on the left side in the back. get some tape ( I use aluminum tape ) and cover the bottom half of the vent, that will help keep your vegetables from freezing. that should solve your problem. Joe

Manually defrost the freezer to fridge port with hair dryer on low temp. The fan in side fridge is probably not turn and blowing the cold over

WHIRLPOOL WRF40 Solution to this problem!!! very easy ----I assume you have a problem with the control board switching on and of erratic when you pass setting 3 on the LED display, the designers of this fridge left the calculator at home that day, ask a technician to replace the Resistors 5, 6 & 7 (330 OHM 1/4 watt) on your electronic control board with 680 OHM 1/4 watt. This would solve the problems with this board, the LEDs will not be as bright as they were but still highly visible. Questions? deon@electro-web.co.za

There should be one on machine somewhere. Maybe in console area or inside bottom kick plate or inside cabinet.
