Thread: fridge warm, freezer working

    fridge warm, freezer working

    Model Number: MBF2258xew5
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 6-10 years

    I have a bottom freezer Whirlpool #MBF2258xew5 that stopped cooling the the fresh food section. I turned off the unit and let it completely defrost. I vacuumed and cleaned the coils. The unit started back up and seemed to be working, but, by morning, the refrigerator was warm again. When the unit was turned back the compressor and fans seem to run normally. However, by morning, the evaporator fan was not running. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you

    Maybe the thermostate is defect and in unfrost mode. Can you check the thermostate first? The thermostate would be the easiest to repair, but trying to fix an evaporator fan motor would be dangerous https://abc-repair.com I would just call a tech and ask, maybe they would help without a visit.
