Refrigerator/Freezer Whirlpool ED25TE stops working

I just got a used Whirlpool ED25TE. Worked fine for a couple of days, then I found that it had stopped working and everything got defrosted (the refrigerator section was not being cooled either). I unplugged it and plugged back in a few minuted, and set the dial to off and the to medium and it started. It worked fine for 3-4 more days, and then the same thing happened. I repeated my solution from last time, and it works again . . . for how long I don't know. Can you tell me how I can fix this problem please?

    our ed25te recently stopped getting cold on both sides.I am looking for a way to determine the cause.I'm not sure if it is the compressor or something else and don't want to find out the hard way

    I purchased my WP - Model ED25te in 2000 and has just in the last 24hours done the same thing.

    I have the same problem. When I turn the controls off and then on again I can hear the compressor start up again. Something is failing to begin cooling when the temp rises. some type of thermastat perhaps?

Check to see if the Finn type coil next to compressor is dirty and clean it out with a brush or vacuum

SOURCE: ice build up in back section of a Whirlpool no frost top freezer refrigerator 66"hx30"wx27"d

your sure the defrost cycle works? sounds to me its not. you need to remove the freezer back and check the defrost components. or put it in the defrost cycle and see if it is working. to get that much frost as you describe the dor would have to be left open. also check all door seals. let me know what you find and we can go from there

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold refrigerator water leaking

If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: The lower refrigerator section is not cold anymore

check to see if the fan motor in the freezer is running. all the cooling happens in the freezer and the fan is what circulates the cold air down to the refrigerator.. if the fan isnt running ,it could be a bad connection or a bad fan motor..on some models the doors need to be closed before the fan comes on so just push on the door switch to check .if the fan is running then a defrost problem may be the problem.. you mentioned you defrosted the unit. if the auto defrost isnt working, you would notice frost on the back of the freezer. there would be a lot more frost behind that panel that could block the airflow down to the frig. you would have to remove rear panel of freezer to clear all the frost and restore proper airflow..remember to unplug the frig before doing any work..

Fridge stops running after about a day.

That is a faulty defrost system.

Test the defrost thermostat, heating coil and fan, and replace the faulty part.
the defrost system is located behind freezer firewall.
