The most likely cause of the squealing is the eveporator fan motor. It may continue for quit a while before it finally quits. When it stops completely the evaporator coil will freeze solid and there will be no air blowing from vents to refrigerator.

Your problems are exactally the same as mine. I have taken the freezer back panels off and fornd the elements blocked with ice, the upper and lower channels to the fridge are blocked with ice and obviously therefore no0 cold air is going the fridge, I have de-frosted the freezer and put back together and everything works great for 2 weeks when the same thing accurs. My settings for both fridge and freezer are on the lowest possible, but the wife does fill the freezer with too much food! I guess I need an expert in!!
Whirlpool refrigerator and freezer problem. a cup was place in the refrigerator to catch the percipitation coming from an inlet from the freezer. Which they are two inlets located in the center back of the refrigerator from the ceiling adjacent to the floor of the top freezer. the Freezer back t-shape vent goes down to these inlets where the percipitation is coming from. What is this the damper
check that the fan in the freezer is running,it circulates the cold air,if it isclose freezer door,open refrig. door lookto the upper left you will see where the cold air enters the refrig compartment and should fill air coming thruough vent this is a motorized unit and they sometimes fail,also check the return air hole located at bottomof refrig.sometimes get blocked by plastic bags etc
First we need to find the defrost timer located inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel. Sometimes there is a small hole covered by a plastic plug to hide the opening. remove the plug and with a flathead screwdriver turn slowly clockwise until the compressor stops. This should put the refrigerator into defrost. After about 25 minutes the timer should turn the refrigerator back on,if not turn again slowly until the compressor comes on again. If this is happens we need to replace the defrost timer part number 660573 Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze
check you paperwork , and manual. sounds like a compressor issue, which "should" be covered by 5 year manufacture warr. reason i say "should" is hte warr's all changed jan1/06. only one year form there . but check your manual itll have the warr info in it
Chances are your defrosting clock is stuck or quit working. The clock works as timer to set time for defrost, at which time it stops the compressor, and turns a heater tube next the cooling coils to melt ice. It depends on your expertise if you want to try replacement,as most replacement are universal, and some rewiring is sometime involved. The clock is usually in front at the bottom behind the removable grill, or in the back. It looks like a square box with a dial that has a one way turn knob. To check use flat screwdriver to slowly turn dial (you can only turn one way) until the compressor stops, then wait to see if compressor starts back on it's own (it might take as long as 30 min.). If it does not start it's bad and need replacement. Of course you can turn dial again until it starts again so you can use fridge. If it does start it could still have been the problem where the clock got stuck, and you got it going again by turning the knob, but let it run. If it works for a while and then have the same problem again the replace clock. Hope this helps you
