URGENT! Whirlpool refrigerator does not get cold at all?
Hi, I recently bought a used appliance set off craigslist. (Seller assured us they all functioned great, they were just upgrading.)
We just installed them, only to find out that the Whirlpool Refrigerator GS6NBEXRS01 isn't working properly.
- Yes, we moved the appliances properly, the fridge was moved with it standing upright, it was never placed on its side.
- Yes, we gave it well over 24 hours to cool, as the manual instructs. The temperature hasn't changed in it at all.
- It is a side by side fridge/freezer. Neither side cools off whatsoever.
- It is plugged in and is on. It lights up. You can hear the blower going.
Model # GS6NBEXRS01
We are desperate because we need a working fridge and do not have money for a service call. Thank you all for any help/advice you can give.
Thank you both for your answers.
I don't know if it was cold when we got it. When we bought it, it was being stored in the man's garage. When we bought it, we also stored it for a couple months until now, when we finally got around to installing it.
I took off the back cover and the compressor was slightly warm. The compressor does kick on.
The condenser fan is running.
I removed the kick plate grill and confirmed that there is air flow.
I do not have a voltmeter, but I will try to pick one up shortly. Are there any other tests/diagnostics I can do myself besides this?
