I have a whirlpool side by side fridge and the freezer was cold but everything thawed and the vent in the bottom is iced over can I fix it or what can I do

Turn the freezer or the whole thing off. You can try blowing that area with a hairdryer for 15 minutes to melt the ice. Switch it back on and leave it 24 hours. If it continues to freeze up you need a service engineer to replace either the defrost heater or defrost thermostat.

My Whirlpool Mark Series Model # EB19MK is not cooling or freezing. Compressor is working, fan is working. Does it have reset button?

No reset of that kind. Did you loose cooling gradually over several days? if yes, you may have a problem with the defrost system causing an excessive frost buildup in the freezer section. symptoms would be excessive frost on freezer back wall. Possibly a bad defrost heater. Replace defective part and manually defrost refrigerator before re-starting.

Why do freezer coils ice up on my Stainless Steel Whirlpool refrigerator (model GB2SHDXTS)?

On your model your cntrl board has a relay that can stick causing the compressor to always run even when the unit is turned off or in defrost. turn the fridge off, move the temp of the freezer to it's warmest setting and it should display a line in the freezer and fridge temp display. listen to hear if the compressor is running in back of the unit. if it is you need part number: 12868513

Heaps of frost/ice in freezer: Whirlpool wro34uw

You probably need to fully defrost the freezer. Switch it off for at least 24 hours and collect the water as it defrosts. Do not try to scrape it as it can damage the product. The cracking and poping noises are most likely the product trying to auto defrost. It is probably too iced up for Auto defrost to work which is why you need to fully defrost. Good luck.

I have a maytag MSD2556AEA refrigearator and the coil freezes up. I've replaced the the defrost timer and the heater and it still freezes up.

While the suspected components have been replaced it is also important that the defrost timer works to move forward and switch on the heater. Also the connections to the defrost timer and heater must be checked., Secondly the thermostat must be checked or should be kept lower than the present point or to normal.
The compressor MUST CUT OFF from the switch on the defrost timer and put the heater to work. if not check the timer and wiring.

shut down the whole unit and let it FULLY defrost,dry it out and then restart as new,it may take 24 hours to settle down,it will help if you have a "fast freeze" button.(as i live in England im not sure of your model).

Freezer cycling on and off, will freeze then thaw out

You have a defrost timer that has possibly slowed down because it is defective. I need you to time the defrost timer or turn the defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment until the refrigerator compressor stops running. It should remain off for about 20 minutes. If a lot longer and the refrigerator does not defrost regularly about 3 times a day then it needs to be replaced. Yes there could be something other than the timer, but if you need my help I'm here let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer Problem

The only thing I can think of is your icemaker heater is staying on. When your icemaker goes into a harvest mode, (dumping ice and then re-filling with water) there is a "U" shaped heater (located on the under side of the icemaker) that comes on to release the frozen cubes from the icemaker mold. If this heater is continuously hot, it will cause temperatures in the freezer to rise.

Water dripping inside fridge

here is the link to the manual if you need it; especially this time of year there can be a massive increase in humidity which often is the cause - the only real cure is to dehumidify the room and try and limit how often you open the fridge. even if the water seems like too much for this to be the cause, you would be surprised how much condensation humid air can produce - I assume everything else seems to be working as normal? ask again if you don't find what you need. check this link too; Hope this helps :)
