Question about Whirlpool Centralpark 25.6 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Stainless-Steel
We have a 7-8 year-old C-Pentane Fridge that has worked well until just the past month. Now, the fridge portion has stopped getting cold. The freezer still freezes fine. What we've noticed is that ice forms in the airshaft between the freezer and fridge causing this problem. We have opened it up 3 times to melt the ice and then it cools for a couple of days. But, then it just freezes up again. Any advice?

The defrost circuit is not working, there are usually 3 things that normally go bad, defrost timer, defrost heater, and thermal switch. Would have serviceman check it out as cooling fins on coils will cut you like a razor.

quickest and cheapest way is to switch the unit off overnight. possibly missed a proper defrost cycle and evap.coil is blocked. when properly defrosted,switch on and you could be back on line

I did some research online, and read that the Start Relay is most commonly the problem. My husband bought the part, (about $50) and reattached it to the side of the compressor....and was cold immediately! apparently a very common problem on these fridges.

Your refrigerator has a defrost timer located inside the fresh food compartment if bad this will stop the defrost, I did not see a circuit bort for the model ED5FHEXMQ Make sure your model is correct because it will mislead any attemp to give help, Thanks, Sea breeze,
