Your freezer may be iced up not allowing the cold air from the freezer to blow into the frige .you may see a ice build up on the back wall of the freezer.an ice build up can also stop the fan.if you can leave the unit off for 12 hrs or longer to thaw and that helps after restarting you may need to change the defrost timer ,defrost heater or both.a faster way is to remove the covers if you can do that.

SOURCE: Side by Side Can't find model # Not cooling enough

I cleaned condenser coils with vacum, emptied the defrost tray and vacumed all the dust from the unit, unplugging first of course. Now it is working just fine. Thank you fixya for all your help and postings.

I still can't find the model number anyplace on the unit. This unit is only 2 1/2 year old but no model number to be found on the unit. But

Check the condenser, behind the toe plate under the doors, for dust buildup. Clean using vacuum crevasse tool to get into the tighter areas. Remove the back panel on the lower edge of the refrigerator back section. Check for fan operation and clean by vacuuming out all dust . Carefully feel the lines coming from the compressor, small one should be hot and larger one should be cool or cold.

Inside the freezer, check the back wall for signs of frost buildup. This would indicate a defrost system problem. The defrost system is controlled by a timer, the timer turns on the heaters that melt the frost on the freezer coil, a defrost terminator switch turns off the heaters when coil reaches temperature for all frost to be gone. Locate the timer which has a clutch head screw so it can only be turned in a clockwise direction. Turn the screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. Defrost should start. Wait 18-22 minutes. If refrigerator restarts the compressor and defrost does not happen Your problem would be in the defrost heater circuit.

SOURCE: Refrigerator i not cooling. Do not feel any air moving on either side.

You access the fan in the freezer section towards the bottom half. there is a thin metal panel covering the fan and evaporater coils. Take out the shelves and then remove the screws to the bottom section starting approx halfway down the back of the freezer wall there you will find the evaporater fan.

Whirlpool freezer not freezing


The fan speed can be deceptive. That is why this problem is so hard to diagnose, when the fan starts to wear out the motor spins but not with enough force to circulate air thru the freezer and rrefrigerator. If you have the ability to swap out the fan motor then it should only cost you the price of the motor and components. Approx. $125.00 if you have the make and model you can go to appliancefactoryparts.com or appliancefactorypro.com to obtain motor and components, But if you have to get serviceman to replace fan it will cost you an hours labor also.

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.
