Whirlpool model #ED5VHGXML13 hot between fridge and freezer
Model Number: ED5VHGXML13 Brand:
1 - 5 years
I have a whirlpool model # ED5VHGXML13 side by side refrigerator that we recently noticed is getting quite hot between the fridge and freezer. A quick google search told us to check the condensing coils to be sure that they're clean, and if they are clean, then it might be a problem with the fan. We checked the condensing coils last night, and they were very dirty, so we brushed and vacuumed them well. This morning when we checked, the center divider was still hot, so I pulled out the fridge, removed the back panel, checked the fan, and it was still running. It was dirty, so I vacuumed it, and the area around it. I also noticed when I removed the panel that that whole general area was quite hot. I didn't touch anything other than the fan because I didn't want to burn myself, but I could feel quite a bit of heat radiating from the area. Also, the compressor (or is it condenser?) doesn't seem to have stopped running at all since we first noticed this problem last night. What do you think could be the problem, and how might we fix it? Thank you very much.
