Whirlpool has become one of the most trusted names in the large appliance industry, but things can still go wrong.
You will find that Whirlpool refrigerator repair is going to be very similar to most refrigerator repairs with the exception of where you will need to get the replacement parts. Most brands of refrigerators will have different internal workings that, though they do the same thing, will work slightly differently so will need the correct parts. Let's look at some of the common Whirlpool refrigerator repairs that you may encounter.
One thing that people often question is how often their refrigerator should be running. This of course will depend on the day and the food that is in the refrigerator, but if you find your refrigerator running all day you may want to look into a few things. Before taking anything apart think if you had recently filled it, changed the temperature, or moved to a more humid area. All of these factors will make your refrigerator run longer to meet your needs. If none of those things are true, then you should clean your condenser coils. If these are dirty they will not cool the refrigerator efficiently. You may also want to defrost your freezer. This is because refrigerators have their temperature gauges in the freezer rather than the refrigerator so a frosted over thermometer can throw things off. Finally check your seals around the door. If they aren't sealing properly, clean them. If it still isn't working you may need to replace them.
Another problem you may encounter when dealing with Whirlpool refrigerator repair is it just doesn't seem to be working. Now these steps are going to be for refrigerators that are plugged in and the light works, it just isn't cooling anything or running. Your first step in this Whirlpool refrigerator repair is to check the temperature setting.
Sometimes these can get changed on accident and turned down to the point that they don't have to run to maintain that temperature. Otherwise, make sure that you have at least three inches of space all the way around the refrigerator and at least one inch above it. This will allow for adequate air flow. If you have enough space and things still aren't working, unplug the refrigerator. Leave it unplugged for two hours and then plug it back in. If it run when you plug it back in you probably have a compressor problem. Chances are something is causing it to overheat and you will want to have a professional take a look at what could be causing that.
