Have extra older Frig in th garage Mod 596.72232200

Have this older frig with freezer on the bottom. Freezer is fine and stays cold but twice now the frig compartment has quit cooling. The other day when I had given up on frig compartment ever cooling awhile back I came home and found water in the garage floor and all and opened the frig and it was cold again. That lasted about 4 days and now it is warm again.

Sounds like a intermittent problem with the defrost timer. Sometimes they get stuck. Check continuity of the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. If both are good then replace the defrost timer, that should solve the problem.

SOURCE: frig not cold but freezer is ice maker not making much ice either

Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.

SOURCE: water collects on shelves and below the crisper bins at bottom

Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.
Remove the back freezer panel and defrost the ice with a hair dryer.
Once the drain is clear poura 1/4 cup bleach in the drain hole.

Bottom frig is not cold enough. just connected after 1 yr


Ok do this. Boil some water in a pot then use that to defrost the freezer. This is caused by ice build up in the vent that is keeping the cold air from coming into the refrigerator. Make sure it is defrost completel though cause the ice that is built up is mostly inside and can't be seen. That will solve ur problem I guarantee. Then set the temperature to normal. Like half way. This keeps the frost from building up. Believe it or not as refrigerators get a bit older they actually get even colder and therefore frost build up is more likely. Since no refrigeration can be made completely leak proof, small amount of the freon has leaked out older fridge, and this actually cause it to get colder. You don't need a service technician just defrost then set to a lower setting thats it.

Whirlpool frig. Freezer warm, frig seems ok.


Since the temperature is already 40°, the cold control is satisfied and will not run. Thus the freezer will warm up to 40°.

I have an sqd26vw frig. Both the freezer and frig upper sections get warm, while the bottoms still stay cold. I unplug for two days, then it seems fine again for about one month. Any suggestions?

your freezer cabinet need to get all out and open the back wall.

Freezer is working fine, but frig is warm,


Look for the return vent near the bottom probably behind the crisper. You'll have to remove it to see the vent. There may be an adjustable flap in to to adjust the meat keeper area. Make sure it's open.
