Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
There is a snapping sound under the fridge.. like a fuss snapping
I woud say your heater has malfunctioned and it has frozen your fridge, you will need to remove the inside plastic wall on your freezer side if its side by side and get a blow dryer and melt all the ice if this is the case. You would need to change the heating element which defrosts your freezer/fridge everyday to prevent freezing up. You can get this heating element from an appliance store where all the appliance repair people get them specific to your model. Its less than a hundred bucks.

Tips for a great answer:
refrigerator is not cooling properly it can be due to a defrost timer, which is
causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for
refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer
is bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and
can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to a bad defrost thermostat,
it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees
Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees.
This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold
temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is
snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends
temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced
when replacing the thermostat.
1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.
Hope this helps...please post back for further
