When the fans are running the compressor should also be running. If the compressor is hot but not running you have a compressor problem. If the compressor is running check for frost on back wall of the freezer compartment which would indicate a defrost system problem. At five years old have you cleaned the condenser where the heat is transferred to the outside air in the room?

Freezer stopped cooling, less than 1 year old


Due to being less than 1 year old , you need to call a Whirlpool factory authorized service center for repairs . This repair will need to be done under warranty . You could try unplugging for a few minutes and then plug back in to reset the electronics .

Fridge in storage for 4 yrs, now not cooling


Good day,
After that much time, be sure the fan motor in the freezer compartment is running, as well as the fan motor on the back bottom behind the cover by the compressor. Either could well have frozen up after 4 years of storage.
As well a refrigerant leak could have developed because of the time frame. However, if it is less then 5 years old, the sealed system would still be under factory warranty.

Whrilpool refrigerator will not cool.


First, put the control back to it's normal setting. Turning it colder is not going to help. Then check the obvious, the coils underneath need to be cleaned, and the fan needs to be running. And check to see if there is a heavy frost on the back wall inside the freezer. If there is it could indicate a defrosting problem. Both will cause the temperature to rise. Also, be sure the fan in the freezer is running.

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 :(

Fridge not cooling/frezer overworking


It is constantly running because the thermostat in your refrigerator registers a warm temperature that never reaches target. Your refrigerator's cooling is dependant on your freezer - obviously your evaporator fan is working since your freezer is cooling, however that cool air is, for some reason not reaching your fridge - Make sure the vents are not blocked or plugged with ice - If applicable also check the damper, maybe the flap is not opening at all, letting cool air in.
Also check door seals and make sure te light switches off by pressing the door contact button.
