Turned whirlpool fridge freezer off to get ice off the cooling element in the freezer.turns it back on and wont restart.why isn't it turning back on?

if you chipped the ice off, rather than letting it thaw naturally, there is a chance you punctured the element and the gas has escaped.. rendering the element useless... sensors will prevent the appliance from trying to cool unpressurised cooling ring.

i think you have to check to make sure that
the fan inside the freezer is cycling on.
it will be concealed of course but you should
be able to hear it. i replaced one once with
the same symptoms and that fixed fridge
portion of a 2002 or 3 whirlpool. make sure
to listen closely and not mistake it for the
stronger fan motor which operates in
conjunction with and nearby the compressor.

Check to see if the run-off tube at the back is plugged.

I dont know how old the fridge is - but if it a couple years old check at the back or the fridge - there should be a tube running down the back of the fridge down into the bottom tray. This tube funnels water from the freezer (condensation, or water from the defrost) down onto the tray holding the compressor where it evaporates with help from the heat off the compressor. Sometimes this tube can get plugged up with some scum or mineral deposits, causing the built up water to drain from inside the fridge.

The tube shouldn't be too hard to remove and clean out with some hot water and pipe cleaners. Had the same issue on on a GE fridge last year.
Hope this helps!

Freezer cold but not fridge

too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.

you have one of three problems and only one problem
the defrost timer is bad
the defrost heater is bad
the defrost thermastat is bad
only one of the above is the problem but no way to know without checking each part with and ohm meter
