I assume that you are in the UK (as indicated by your product number) so call Whirlpool Service on 0844 815 8989 and give them the mnodel no and the 12 digit number that begins with 85 and they will assist you.

If you are not in the UK then go to

http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/global_sites.jsp

and select your region / country and locate the contact suppoprt tab and contact them with the same details.

There is a defrost timer that starts the defrost. It may be in the section where the temperature controls are located. You will find a round hold with a clutch head screw accessible through the hole. Turn the screw clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. The system should then be in the defrost mode. Wait about 25 minutes and if the timer is good the system should go back into the cooling mode. If it does NOT, advance the timer to the next click and get a replacement timer. The defrost should have taken place if there is no other problem. If the unit went back into the cooling mode and defrost did not take place your problem is in the freezer section behind the rear wall. There you will find two items, a defrost heater and a defrost thermostat. You can check out the heaters with an Ohm meter. No reading, open, means replace the heater.

Could it be that there is degradation of the plastics due to heating of the defrosting coils or is it the smell off leaked gas.
Remove all the food stuff from the fridge and clean, wash the inside throughly. Now restart the fridge and after aboutone hour check for smell, continue this till you notice, if the smell comes in after about 10 hours then you must look into the defrosting heater for any traces of material on it causing the smell on heat.

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.

Fridge and freezer stopped working but fridge light still on should the orange switch by the light be on or off don't know if that is the defrost button


Sounds like a motherboard or defrost control board. Can you tell me the model number found inside the fresh food compartment or around fresh food section door frame, Without the model number it is hard to guess what the switch is that you are asking about, Thanks Sea Breeze

The freezer is not cold enough but i don't see a temperature control inside. Does the one in the fridge also control the freezer?


Correct. The fridge works 100% off the freezer anyways. So they installed the sensor right between the freezer and fridge if you look inside you can see it.
