whirlpool SxS (1998) fridge side not cold enough
Posted 19 May 2005 - 09:33 PM
The condenser coils were dirty as heck. I cleaned this up but it did not resolve the problem. Although it seemed to make the freezer side colder. I noticed that of the 2 air vents in the Fridge side, only the smaller upper vent is blowing any cold air. It's not even very strong. The lower larger vent is not blowing any cold air at all.
Is this an issue with a fan? If it is why is the freezer side nice and frozen with lots of cold air circulating? Is there a seperate fan for the fridge side? Perhaps it's completely another item? Should I yank out all the frozen goods and see if the Evaporator coils are snowed in? If I should replace a part can anyone tell me what it is and where I can order it?
Thanks for any help. In the meantime I will be drinking my milk faster!!

2nd do you have both of the controls set at the midpoints. The freezer control only open or closes the air shutter in the diffuser(that's the air vent at the top left of the frig compartment). turning it to "colder" will starve the frig section of cold air. Often people have it set all the way to "colder"
3rd when the evaporator fan is running, close the freezer door and see how much air is coming out. Then open the freezer door and see if the air flow is greatly increased. If so, the air inlet vent(the lower vent in the frig compartment) may be filled with frost. if so you need to spend a bunch of time and melt it out completely.
4th check the diffuser to see if it is full of frost. if so melt it out completely
5th be careful melting the frost out, Your liner, diffuser,and air vents are all plastic, they will melt or warp if you use too much heat.
6th Give us your brand and model number. Our host has many great links that can help
