Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
FREZZER IS -18 DEGREES
FRIDGE WON'T GET BELOW 50
Sounds like a evaporator fan or defrost problem. Your freezer should be colder then that, 5 degrees or below. Anyway, any cold air the fresh food compartment gets is blown over from the freezer, verify you can feel the air flow or visually see or hear the fan in the freezer compartment. If that checks ok more then likely your defrost system has a defect. This consists of a defrost timer or adaptive defrost board, a defrost terminator which is just a bi-metal thermostat set typically at 30 degrees or so and a heater element, either a calrod or 1 or 2 glass encased elements. When this system fails you end up with a block of ice on the coils through which air cannot circulate.
