SOURCE: MCBR1020W, 10cf., new fall 2009, defrost stops working

Good day,
You have an unlimited warranty for the first 12 months, and are entitled to a proper repair.
Could be a factory defect.
My advice is get hard nosed with them. The people you are dealing with did not design the machine but are responsible to correct or research or worst case scenario replace the machine.
The factory will eventually compensate them.

Whirlpool stopped blowing cool air. Unplugged


It sounds as if your defrost timer has failed. Unplugging the unit over night allowed the unit to defrost. If unplugging it overnight or by using a stnd fan blowing into the freezer section for 90 minutes results in the fan blowing cold air then your unit is not defrosting. Most often the defrost timer is the problem. However there could be other defrost circuit like the thermostat or the defrost element. In order to provide you with the correct solution and defrost timer location you should privde your model number for further instructions.

Refrigerator stopped cooling


the problem is in your freezer !
open the back wall of your freezer and check if the fan working then if you see a big build up of ice. then its your heater unit or your heater thermostat. to check that it is the problem unplug the unit defrost the freezer coil with hair drier gently and when it done plug it again and see if your fridg get cool (1h or 2) then you know its the heater unit or the thermostat :(

KEEPS STOPPING


Because your refrigerator has an Adaptive Defrost Control board I believe we need to look inside the fresh food section and behind the control panel where the temperature controls are located. I can help you more just let me know. I will not be notified if you send a message back but I will return for today and see if you respond. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Stopped cooling but i can hear running . Unplugged for 24 hours and plugged back in but coil inside freezer is not cooling. I can see the fan in the freezer running. It was working fine two days ago.


The overload/relay is probably bad .This is the part plugged onto the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires plugged onto it . You can easily replace this part . Be sure to have your model number when ordering .

Light on in fridge but no compressor sound or clicks or fan


That dude is probably stuck in the defrost mode.
OK try this:
1. Unplug refrigerator
2. Turn Cold Control to “off (Compressor is off)
3. Plug in refrigerator
The defrost cycle has now been initiated. The DTT has a bypass/test point for diagnosis. To terminate defrost manually:
1. Unplug the refrigerator
2. Turn the cold control “on” (Compressor is on)
3. Plug in the refrigerator
The defrost cycle is terminated and refrigeration cycle resumes.
Replace the dang adaptive defrost if you cannot get any response.
