The way to Troubleshoot a Whirlpool Refrigerator Freezer Model Number GI5SVAXVl01

Like virtually any other key appliance, Whirlpool’s GI5SVAXVI01 — a 2010 model having a bottom-drawer freezer — might have the occasional functional lapse. Proper day-to-day usage helps you get the best performance from the GI5SVAXVI01, and as a water-filter-equipped appliance, this version requires a bit of routine maintenance to keep in tip-top form.

Address the Basics

If your Whirlpool GI5SVAXVI01 does not run at all, make sure the appliance is plugged in and assess your home’s electric service panel to get a blown fuse. You need a 15- or 20-amp fuse to force this fridge, and Whirlpool recommends running the fridge on a dedicated circuit. To prevent power-related issues, do not run the GI5SVAXVI01 through an extension cord or plug it into a socket which may be turned off by a switch.

Stay Cool

Don’t fret if your newly installed fridge does not feel cool; it requires about 24 hours after installation to your unit to cool fully. Frozen or frosty foods in the fridge compartment have likely been placed too close to the ports, inhibiting the appliance from discharging cool air. Store food away from the ports to ward off excessively cold temperatures. Ensure items in the fridge compartment do not prevent the doors from closing fully, along with your Whirlpool might have trouble keeping food cool. Clean the appliance’s door gasket with mild soap and warm water if it becomes dirty to keep cool air trapped in the fridge.

Dispense of Errors

If the Water purifier leak seems weak or the ice maker creates sub-par blocks, then check the water-supply line connected to the fridge for kinks and correct them. Make sure the water supply shutoff valve is totally open. Replace the water filter to encourage water circulation and the production of big, transparent ice cubes. Find the filter in the top right-hand corner of the fridge compartment. Turn the old filter cartridge counterclockwise to remove it, then remove the replacing filter’s sealing label and then screw it in clockwise. Run the water dispenser for a couple of minutes only after replacing the filter to prevent future dispenser errors. Whirlpool recommends replacing this refrigerator’s filter at least once every six months.

Reach Out to Whirlpool

Contact Whirlpool customer support or schedule a service appointment in the organization’s official website. Also on the website, Whirlpool has complimentary live chat with its support team.
