This side by side will stop cooling, then I'll adjust the freezer colder control and it will start up. Then, will stop cooling after 3 days or so I'll adjust the same control and it starts and the process starts all over again. From what I've read in most of the questions, thermostats seem to be the problem. Are they difficult to replace?

Hello, my Kenmore side by side has temp control issues. It is a 2nd frig located in the garage. At times the freezer temp will be 15 +/- (it use to be lower than that) & the frig will be in the 30's. Other times such as now the freezer will not go below 20 and the frig might be 40 +. Sometimes the frig will freeze food. The outside temp seems to possibly influence the inside temp. The vent control does open and almost completely close when actuated by the freezer control knob. The unit has very long run times. If I turn the temp control down it will shut the unit off. However, the amount I turn it down greatly varies to get to the shut off point. The temp out of the freezer duct is 20 as compared to my newer Whirlpool of 5. Cond. coils are clean and fans run. Help. Thank you, Mike

Hi. The left side freezer started to fail to defrost itself automatically. I can manually defrost the unit completely by taking the inside back panel and expose the whole radiator-type grill, which was completely covered by ice by the way, and start from zero after 45 mins-1 hr. but after at least 3 days it will freeze again. the timer seems to work fine as I can hear it turn the compressor off once in a while, then had the defroster element tested as well as the thermal disc replaced but it still has that problem. please help thanks

The fridge side of my Whirlpool side by side is now freezing the food. I have not touched the thermostat or blocked any vents before the freezing started today. I now have turned the thermostat to a warmer temp to see if that will help. Refrigerator. temp was set on 3 and freezer was between A and B. I now have the refrigerator. on 2. When I moved it to 2 the compressor shut off and later came back on as the fridge warmed. I have checked the airflow from all vent and everything seem fine. Any ideas? Thank you for your help

I have a Whirlpool gd25dfxfw01 that doesn't cool (compressor doesn't run) until I strike the control unit (in the top front inside of the refrigerator) between the two temperature knobs...then the compressor cuts on and runs for awhile, and the refrigerator gets cold. Is the most likely cause a sticking "adaptive defrost timer" or the cold control, or something else?

My ice cream started melting. Everything else seems frozen good. So I dropped a thermometer in the freezer. Was -5. Couple hours later it is +20 and the compressor hadn't kicked on. So I turned the dials on the freezer and fridge up. Boom compressor kicks on. Turn the dials back to where they were. Compressor still running. Put my hand over the coil louvers in the back of the freezer. Seems to be moving a lot of cold air. I'm waiting to see how long it takes to cool the freezer down...or if it able to. In the meantime...assuming it cools down...is it the "cold control" 2198202 that I should replace. PS last night I thought it was the defrost circuit, but I walked through the timer, termination thermostat/relay, and heating element... all seem to work fine, so i don't think it is that.

Hello, Was hoping to get some help. I have a Whirlpool ed25uexhw00. It was running fine then all the sudden it stopped running. It has power, you open the doors and the light comes on but its not cooling. I found that if I turn the temperature dial off then on the lights turn off briefly and turn back on then the compressor starts running again and it starts cooling for a while until it randomly stops again. It doesn't start up again until I turn the temperature dial off then on. Any ideas?
