If everything is melting inside freezer and you hear a clicking sound most likely you have a bad start device located on the side of the compressor,unplug it until you repair it or you can damage the compressor,pull out the machine.unplug it and remove the bottom panel,look at the compressor,you'll see a metal clip holding a cover onto the start device,pop the clip off,remove the cover and then slide the start device off of the compressor,there's three pins on the side of compressor,the device slides onto the pins,when you have it off of the compressor,the easiest way to check it is to shake it,if you hear pieces rattling around in it it's cooked.next time send the model number and i can look up your machine,open the fridge door,look up on the right hand side of the wall up near the ceiling,you'll see the model number,you'll need this to get the correct part.

SOURCE: Whirlpool bottom freezer - freezer working but fridge not cold

Hi check to see if the unit has 2 compessors! If so then remove the plug from the mains and remove the thermostat housing in the fridge compartment and join the live and common wires together and switch on! It then should start to freeze down. Just get a new stat if this happens and replace it. Becarefull not to bent the log capilary wire as this has a liquid in it and any kink in the wire will mean you will be buy another one..
Good luck....

SOURCE: freezer working fine, but no cold air to fridge

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control unit
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

SOURCE: whirlpool fridge not cooling gone warm air blowing

more than likely the compressor is not starting, it has a starting device on the left side of the compressor which has a relay/overload called a relay, remove the relay and shake it , if it rattles it has gone bad. the relay/overload combination has gone bad and can be replaced with pro41 relay. if the compressor has a run capacitor just eliminate the capacitor when replacing with new relay. connection of the two wires makes no difference.

SOURCE: 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.
