Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

Can I please have the Full model number of the unit to better assist you ?

And w4xtnwfwq03 is not a good model number .

Or are you not in the U.S?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it is a Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer that is the number on the plaque..it does say type-14TFA
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

are you in the U.S.?

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

And this plaque is it in the fresh food section in the unit?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i am in the USA, it is at a mountain cabin,which i will have to dbl check the model number and get back to you
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Yes please do that number is ***** correct.

And if I use a parts dealer that if it is close their system can fix it to the closest match ,and that number will not convert to anything and I even tried just Googling it and nothing comes up .

But I played with the numbers and letters and I found W4TXNWFWQ03 could the T and the X be reversed?

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Is this just a standard top mount freezer ?

With metal shelfs.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Write your reply here...i could have reversed the x and t,,,,yes standard top mount freezer
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok so I will go with that. number.

Is this rust all over the doors or just one place? and if you open the fresh food door did you see any condensation on the top rail of the refrigerator cabinet frame just under the freezer door?

And I`m going to assume since it is a cabin it is not air conditioned at all or part of the time.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
all over the front doors,,,no condesation to speak of,it is outside under the eaves
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i read some where it may have to do with the energy switch? and if i turn the switch off, it should not happen any more
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

OH OK outside .so you need to do this clean it up as good as you can and then put a good coat of auto wax on it to protect it and it should be fine .

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

if you have kids give them the Karate kid experience! LOL

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it will stop the rust from coming out? i did buy some appliance spray paint. i will use it as a last resort......
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

yes it should Seal the metal so moisture can not get to the metal .

I even recommend it to my customers on all appliances when I lived in South Florida and the customer either did not have air conditioning or used it very little

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok...will give it a try and let you know how it does. thanks for yor help....
