Whirlpool Refrigerator Freezing Food

Modern homes require refrigerators in modern households. It’s a safe and efficient way to store food items for longer periods of time. There are times when the Whirlpool refrigerator could be dangerous particularly when used to store food items. Food that is frozen can lead to many issues, such as food spoilage and freezing burn, loss of flavor, and even texture. We will explore the reasons why the refrigerator in your Whirlpool may be storing food in a freezer and the best way to stop it from occurring. To make sure that your food stays tasty and fresh, we’ll provide you with some suggestions on how to organize and store your food in the contents of your Whirlpool refrigerator. You’ll reduce food waste and enjoy the food you eat to the fullest regardless of whether you’re a pro chef or just a beginner.

01 01 Whirlpool Refrigerator Thermostat Temperature Control

The thermostat that controls temperature regulates voltage for the fan motors, compressors for condenser and evaporator fans according to the need. The thermostat for temperature control may not be functioning properly and the refrigerant system may be running longer than it needs to. The refrigerator of Whirlpool may become too cold. If the thermostat doesn’t click, change it from lowest to the most extreme setting. The thermostat should be clicking if it doesn’t click. To determine if the thermostat is in continuity, you can make use of a multimeter to confirm that the thermostat is functioning. Replace the thermostat if it can not keep continuity in any setting.

02 02 Whirlpool Refrigerator Heater

The thermistor measures the temperature of air and relays the temperature to the control board. Based on the temperature readings of the thermosistor, the control board controls the power supply for the compressor fan and evaporator fans. The fan and compressor could be running too frequently when the thermistor has been damaged. The refrigerator can become cold due to this. Check the multimeter to determine if the multimeter is malfunctioning. The Whirlpool refrigerator’s temperature will cause the thermistor’s resistance to change. Replace the thermistor in the event that the resistance to changes in thermistor resistance isn’t evident or the thermistor’s continuity isn’t present.

03 03 Whirlpool Refrigerator Main Control Board

A malfunctioning main control board may be the reason. The issue is usually due to the control board. Before replacing the control board, be sure that you test all the components which are likely to be in a state of deficiency. If one of these components are not in good condition, you can replace the control board in its entirety.

04 04 Whirlpool Refrigerator Temperature Control Board

The temperature control board provides voltage to the motors of the fan and compressor. The control board may not provide enough current to the compressor as well as fan motors. The refrigerator of Whirlpool may become too cold. Control boards are often incorrectly identified. When replacing the control board , make sure that you test all components that are likely to fail. Replace the temperature control board, if the temperature control boards aren’t in good condition.

2005 – Whirlpool temperature set to cold

The Whirlpool refrigerator temperature control can be adjusted to a warmer setting. There are several models with the temperature control that is typically between 34 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit. Give 24 hours for the temperature setting to be in effect.

06 06 Whirlpool Refrigerator Fan Motor

The Whirlpool refrigerator’s fan motor draws air from the cold coils and cools it. To keep food fresh the air circulates through the freezer and refrigerator compartments in the Whirlpool. If the motor of the evaporator fan isn’t functioning properly, frigid air coming from the refrigerator or coils that evaporate could flow across the air conduits and reach the bottom, causing food to be frozen. To determine if the fan blades are turning freely, try spinning the blades of the fan. If they aren’t spinning freely, the bearings of the motor could be seized. A multimeter is a tool to determine if there is electrical continuity. If the motor is not in electrical continuity won’t work and you’ll need to replace it with a new one.

07 – Food items that are too close to the vents

Make sure there is enough space between the food items and air vents. Certain foods are susceptible to freezing when placed right in front of the vents for cold air.

08 08 Whirlpool Refrigerator Damper

In order to allow the proper quantity of chilled air into the Whirlpool refrigerator the damper is opened and closes. The refrigerator won’t cool down when the damper remains open. The refrigerator made by Whirlpool is likely to become cold. To find out if the damper has been damaged or is stuck open Check it.

09 09 Whirlpool Refrigerator Damper Controller Assembly

To make sure that the fridge compartment is cool to the correct temperature the control for the air damper is opened and closed. The refrigerator won’t cool down when the damper is not closed correctly. To find out if the control for the damper is damaged or jammed open, make sure you check it.

10 10 Whirlpool Refrigerator defrost Thermostat

The temperature of the evaporator coils are controlled by the thermostat for defrost located on the Whirlpool refrigerator. The thermostat contacts are shut when the coils are below an appropriate temperature in order to allow the heater to run during the defrost process. The thermostat may not allow the voltage to reach the heaters for defrost. This can cause the coils in the evaporator to freeze, leading to air loss and cooling. Multimeters can be used to test for continuity of electrical power in order to determine whether the thermostat is in error. Replace the thermostat if it can not keep continuity even at the lower temperatures of the operating temperature range.
