“I am writing this just to help anyone who is having...”

Written on: 15/04/2011

I am writing this just to help anyone who is having problems with their Whirlpool American Fridge Freezer. I have had mine for 5 years trouble free however last month the freezer alarm started sounding, showing -- on the temperature display. I could reset it by switching it off and on at the front panel, it would clear for a while then do the same thing again but the freezer temperature was low and slightly defrosting. Mine has the ice and water dispenser but no water filter at the lower front unlike many.

Most faults are actually caused by the capacitors on the rear PCB, the board costs £200 but you can buy the capacitor kit for £10, its an easy repair, you can get the kit at http://shop.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/Refrigeration+Parts/Whirlpool/Whirlpool+Control+Modules/Whirlpool+American+Fridge+Electronic+Control+PCB+Repair+Kit.html



good instructions at;

www.brysat.eu/whirlpool.aspx





The kit comes with instructions and has fixed mine. Good luck, hope this helps

Folowing on from my last comment, I had a pair of Whirlpool engineers together trying to fix the problem. In the end they had replaced everything and the only thing outstanding could be a re-gassing. They left with it working OK as usual and for their follow up call two days later I confirmed that everything seems fine. Hurray! A day later back to the same problem. Went out and bought a cheap Beko American Fridge - Marvelous. Garage has a 5yr Whirlpool waiting to be dumped.

Hope this is helpful to some others: Always try defrosting fully for 24 hours with doors open, and hoovering all vents front and back. Whirlpool engineer told us that the dust build up in the vents can cause the air flow to slow, causing the coils to freeze. Although frost free the lack of air flow restricts the freezers ability to defrost itself. Ours showed the same fault as yours. Luckily the defrost thing has cured it, its been over 8 weeks now and its working fine, took it apart other day and no ice has built up so assume its fixed. Dont rush into buying new PCBs, its worth a full defrost and dust before spending.
