Question about Frost Freezer WCWO F15WA FREE - POCKET HANDLE - L

1 Answer

My Servis fridge/freezer sounds like Darth Vader

For the last week it appears to be constantly on has sounded like heavy breathing & the fridge temperature has just risen from just below 5 degrees up to 10 degrees! The freezer seems to be ok at the moment but I have to go away on business Tuesday for around a week.

Q. will it be ok to leave on or am I likely to come back home to a flooded kitchen

We had the same problem and discovered that the ice making device was "on" and we don't have it hooked up.  In the "on" position the pump begins to run but there is no water to pull so it sounds like breathing.  The ice making bar for us on our Jenn-Air is located near the ice trays and ours needs to be in the up position for off.  Hope this helps!

What shld settings be as food is freezing in fridge it has side by side knobs saying colder mid less cold it is a westinghouse fan forced frost free freestyle unit


The settings are "relative". Someone with this fridge in Montana may need to run the same fridge with different settings than someone in Texas to get the same temperatures.

Many manufacturers recommend that the fresh food compartment should be 34 degrees F, and the freezer -10 to 0 degrees F. To set this properly, place a thermometer in the freezer (that can display temperatures as low as the desired temperature). Adjust the thermometer for the correct freezer temperature before going on to the fridge. A fully stocked freezer could take 12 hours or more for temperatures to stabilize after making changes to the thermostat. Once the -10 to 0 degree temperature has been achieved, set the fresh food compartment temperature.

Place a thermometer (that can display below freezing) in a 6 (or so) oz flexible plastic cup of water and place on a shelf in the fridge. A glass of water could break if the temperature gets below 32 degrees if the water turns to ice. The water acts as a buffer to rapidly changing temperatures when the door is opened to read the thermometer. If the fridge is "full", allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize before making changes.

If the fridge and freezer are empty, changes may be seen in just a few hours or less. Otherwise, wait the 12 / 24 hours for the freezer / fridge compartments.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Constant Defrost causing water accumulation problems


Yes! look under you fridge for the consendate drain hose *(usually dangling right over the catch tray) and using a long piece of slightly heavy guage wire snake up the drain hose and see if it's blocked.

If it isn't blocked you might have a crack somewhere in the fridges interior near the fridge/freezer interface. That might be a bit harder to spot since it would most likely be under cover.

Good luck and be careful.

Freezer temperature v


This sounds like your motherboard,computer or control board(they call it different things in different models) is bad. It is responsible for the fan speed and timing of the defrost cycle. To locate your timer, motherboard, control or adaptive defrost control , enter your model number and search for the part or post back on Fixya.

New whirlpool refrig. freezer ok at 0 but refrig


The freezer get the first crack at cooling and combination units have a fan and adjustable vents to steal some of the cooling capacity for the refrigerator. The vent are normally located in the back of the refrigerator compartment and with these, you can balance the cooling capacity between freezer and fridge. I recommend you swap your thermometer back and forth until you get the balance you want; typically the freezer should be at 5 degrees F or below and the fridge at 35-40 degrees F. Adjusting the control for temperature and having the vents set to supply the cold air you want in each compartment should give you the range you want in each.

Fridge freezer side by side running constantly but not cooling.


Make it a habit to defrost it every week. You see, when ice forms around the evaporator tubes (which runs around the walls of fridge and freezer), heat exchange reduces (that means heat is no longer absorbed from the things inside the refrigerator) and cooling stops. See whether freezer walls or fridge walls are damaged. Do not use knives or any other sharp tools to remove ice. Do not forcefully remove items that are difficult to take out from the freezer. Defrost and remove them.

I have a servis fridg freezer and the fridge is


sounds like the thermostat has packed in, it works as a switch for the compressor (which will be constantly on) if its a conventional model and should be replaced. if its a frost free it will be a control module thats faulty.
never work on a live appliance and get expert advice if you are at all unsure when replacing parts as if not isolated properly you will give yourself a nasty shock.
