SOURCE: refrig/freezer just quite working?

The defrost timer is located in the control panel in the fresh food section.
Look up under the panel and see a opening slightly smaller than a dime.
Put the blade of a butter knife in there and turn clockwise a quarter turn.
If the fridge starts working, replace the defrost timer.

SOURCE: Whirpool Refrigarator Compressor Very Hot Will

hey 
you either have 3 things an over heated compresser, this wouldnt allow the compressor to cool anything beacuse it has an overload which kicks out once the compressor is too hot, and the compressor doesnt work without the overload. solution: get some paper towels, UNPLUG THE FRIDGE, and run some cold water on the towels and use them to cool the compressor, i like to get like 4 or 5 towels wet them and put them on top of the compressor and get another 4 5 towels wet them put the un the bottom front of the compressor. than use another 4 5 towels and cool the front by just rubbing the middle front. keep repeating this until your compressor is not hot anymore like luke warm or better than buy a 3 in 1 its like 20 dollars and install that ( if you need help i will be more than willing to walk you trough it over this or you can call me too)
and the second thing that it can be is overheated compressor due to the condesner fan not working, and thats simple fix just see when you turn on your fridge and turn the dials all the way up to 9 or w.e option you have. see if the fan by the compressor is working if not replace it its also like 20 bucks
or 3 the worst case scenerio free-on leak it has no freeon and the compressor keeps keeeps working to cool the fridge but it cant without freeon so due to the excessive working lol the compressor overheats and shuts off  if thats the case buy a new fridge

SOURCE: We have Maytag 25 cubic feet stainless steel

There is a defrost problem. Ice builds up between the ref and frz sections and wont allow coolo air through. You can also check to see if the damper is stuck closed

These problems are common on the Artica Profile Models. I will be here to help you repair if you should choose, Thanks Sea Breeze

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Motor seems to run more frequently than it should


Check your model number again as I can not find that model number. Is it cooling normally? Possible that it is trying to keep the temps cooler because of many different possibility's. Let me know and I will try to find an answer. Thanks, Sea Breeze
