    yes, I can hear the fan inside the freezer and you can hear the unit running in general when you walk up to it...thanks

    I have the same problem.. I have cleaned it out completely...but though it sounds like it is running, it isn't cooling. Every couple of minutes you hear someting kick in and buzz...it lasts maybe 20 seconds and then stops?



    Both fridge and freezer are set on coldest settings, and don't seem to be working. All vents are not blocked.

I did some research online, and read that the Start Relay is most commonly the problem. My husband bought the part, (about $50) and reattached it to the side of the compressor....and was cold immediately! apparently a very common problem on these fridges.

Can you tell me why please?


All the big cooling happens inside freezer compartment. Freezer gives little cool air to fridge compartment. Now when the vent blocks that little cold air cannot go into fridge compartment. Thus your freezer works good but not fridge compartment. Milk goes bad but frozen meet keeps good.....

Vent freeze up either due to defrost problemt, defrost drain line problem, Evaporator fan problem or even can be your damper motor not opening due to unit failure or frozen damper door.

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling after storm


Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

Freezer (top) is cool, but refrigirator at room temperature


Your first step is to make sure the condenser coils and the fan are clean and there is nothing blocking air flow around the outside of the fridge. A good vaccuming and brushing will do it wonders.

If this does not improve the operation. Tell the landlord that it is bad and if it is part of the supplied appliances, he should replace or repair it for you.

If he is not cooporative, do some online searches for methods to convince him to do his job or who to contact to ensure he doesn't cause you harm.

Whirlpool refrigirator with top freezer


run your hand around bottom door seal see if you can feel a warm spot, if you do check that area for contamanation ie;particals of food etc if not pull the seal in that area back slightly see if seal is split.if all seems ok look at the drain hole at the back of your fridge inside it often clogs up with small particals of food if this is the problem use a pipe cleaner to clean it.if its cloged water will be seen lying at the bottom of your fridge ;if any of the above do not cure your problem turn down your fridge a little this will not affect your freezer.hope this helps you.adrian

Sounds like the unit may be stuck in to defrost . The defrost clock is usually inside of the refrigerator compartment up by the thermostat controls. you can take a screw driver and advance the controller to make the compressor come back on . usually when they start to stick they neeed replacing. good luck and please don't forget to rate the answer please. Thanks for using FixYa.

Whirlpool Gold Conquest side by side (stainless steel front)bought in 2004. Freezer stopped freezing, fridge cooling fine, freezer is running. Thank You!


sounds as if you have an ice buildup restricting the fan from moving airflow to the freezer. Inside the freezer take apart the lower shelf and see if this area is full of ice, if so clean it and defrost it.
