Here we have compiled a few Whirlpool fridge repair issues and their associated solutions for your benefit. If this helps you, great! Otherwise, we are never too far.
Problem #1: Several users who have top freezer models have reported that there is a leakage of water from their freezer into the refrigerator compartment. People tend to adjust the temperature settings on their refrigerators, thinking that might be the cause. However, the problem is not that.
Solution: The most likely cause of the leakage is that the drain from the freezer compartment, which clears the defrosted water, is blocked with ice. You will need to start by clearing the drain. To access it, empty out your freezer, and remove all its compartments and the back wall. You will see the drain under the defrost coil. First melt the ice around the coil using a hair dryer. Now, use a steamer to clear the drain. Follow this by running hot water through the drain to make sure that it is clear. Now you will not observe any leakage. To make sure your drain remains clear, you could have a drain heater installed in the drain hole.
Problem #2: A few Whirlpool users have reported that over time their refrigerator’s internal lights stopped working, and even after installing new bulbs the lights did not come back on. Here is the solution to this problem.
Solution: If changing the bulbs does not help, there may be a defect in the door switch. Try pressing the door switch physically, and see if it works. If you find that the switch is broken or it is not working at all, you will need to get the switch replaced. If the switch works, it means that your refrigerator door is not pressing the switch properly when it opens. This is a mechanical defect, and it is best to call in a technician.
Problem #3: Some side-by-side Whirlpool refrigerator owners have reported that after they changed their own water filter, the ice maker stopped working. The water dispenser continues to work fine, but there is no ice.
Solution: First of all, you need to give at least 24 hours after installing your new water filter to see any ice.If there is no ice even after 24 hours, check the temperature in your freezer. Most icemakers will only function if the temperature is at 6 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the temperature is higher than that, you may have a defect in your freezer.
If the temperature is ok, check to see whether your icemaker arm is in the correct position. In most models, the icemaker operates when the arm is down, and switches off when the arm is up. Finally, if everything is in place, it means that there is either some defect in your icemaker or your water inlet valve. Call a technician to check your water inlet valve. If there is no defect in the valve, you will need to get your icemaker replaced.
Keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive account of Whirlpool problems. However, it does cover some major concern. If you still require professional Whirlpool refrigerator repair in San Diego, do give us a call right away.
