    After trying to figure out things ourselves, my husband and I asked my handyman brother to come by and I told him your diagnosis and viola! Built up frost in the freezer. Thx!

Check the back wall of the freezer compartment for ice buildup. Sounds like you have a defrost issue.

    Good. Now you know what you have to deal with.

    Defrost thermostat.

    Defrost heater and defrost timer.

    Glad I could help.

Whirpool wgi fridge freezer, fridge not cooling?


Most frideges get all their cooling from the freezer. There will be a fan and duct in the back of the freezer that pushes cold air down into the fridge. If the duct is blocked with ice or the fan motor has quit. Your freezer will work fine but the fridge will barely cool at all. Check that the fan runs when the compressor is running, ( turn both temp knobs to the highest cooling and leave door open until comp. comes on). If the fan runs your duct is plugged. If not you need a new " Freezer Fan Motor". Most are simple to replace and cost around $100.00.

My fridge won't cool down or freeze


Your condenser is likely dirty clean it. the compressor could be tripped out on over load (to hot) unplug the fridge a couple hours should do it . plug it back in make sure the thermostat is on and set correctly if that does not work you will need service. Tom

My amana bottom freezer won't cool both the fridge and freezer are warm


I just had the same problem with the same fridge. When I removed the inside panel in the freezer, I found that the cooling/circulation fan had fallen due to the mounting screws having rusted off. I removed the fan housing to get the screw ends out from the back side and remounted the fan with new screws. The fridge and freezer both work fine now and I'm assuming it will for many more years until it happens again.

Freezer ok(Whirpool -6 yrs old), but the fridge is not cooling sufficiently, only around 50 degrees. A lot of frost build up in the freezer. Have to thaw it every couple of days.


defrost system not working. take back panel off inside freezer.
check continuity thro the defrost element and stats mounted on the pipework
if all ok then points to a fault with timer or module

Whirlpool fridge


3 things can cause this:

1) Inoperable fan in the freezer.
2) Defrost problem (frost build up on back panel in the freezer)
3) Damper inoperable (vent in the fridge section)

Look for these symptoms and let me know what you find.

Bottom mount freezer not getting cold enough


You have a failed component or components in your automatic defrost system. This is why you have excessive frost inside the freezer along the back wall. The timer could be stuck in run mode. The defrost thermostat (bi-metal) could be defective or the defrost heater could be open or shorted.
