SOURCE: Ice maker stopped working
are the "fingers" of the icemaker pointed toward you and slightly up? if not the icemaker is internally broken . is the red light to the right blinking twice and then a one second pause? if not the emmitter is broken. is the black hose coming from the ceiling blocked with ice ? if so the water vave is broken allowing water to seep in hose and freeze. hope this helps.

pull fridge out and listen if noise is comming from compressor or not. If not, then your evaporator fan is comming into contact with the ice from the evap.coil. Basically give unit a good overnight defrost with doors open as the insulation on this fridge is good

Contact Whirlpool Customer Care about this. There has been a serious problem with the Embraco compressors they are using.

If it is cooing fine, then the noise is probably your evaporator fan (the one inside your freezer). This can be cause by one of several things. The motor on this fan may be going bad, or, more likely, you may have a build up of ice around the blades that are touching the fan. This may be caused by a defrost circuit that has gone bad, or, the freezer may have been open alot lately and there is an excess of frost that hasn't melted away yet. If you can, manually defrost the freezer and see if it goes away. If it doesn't, it's probably the fan motor. If it does, and then comes back, it's probably the defrost circuit. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 13 month frig quit running
Here is what I would do:
I would check to see if the compressor and condenser fan motor is running. If the compressor was hot to the touch that would give me a clue.
That would tell me the relay is stuck in start mode causing the compressor to get hot and quit. I would remove the relay and put my HS410 start pack to see if the compressor comes on and I would check if it was over amping. The amp draw should be around 1 amp. If it is running 7 or 8 amps then the compressor is shot will over heat and die. The fan motor by the compressor should run when the compressor does. So if the compressor is running but not the fan then you need to look at buying a fan motor. If the fan is running but the compressor is not then you need to buy a relay. If all of that is ok I would next listen for the fan motor blowing in the freezer, no fan no cool. Lots of times fans will make a racket if ice begins to build in the evaporator. They will get louder and louder. Then the ice will build to the point the fan won't blow.
I would need to check for a bad defrost heater or terminator if that is the case. Do this test: unplug the ice box and let it sit for 3 or 4 days till it completely thaws out. Then plug it back in. If it begins to work ok then you KNOW you have a defrost problem. Replacing the defrost thermostat and heater is not very difficult, you still need to let it thaw out to do it. Even if you called me out there and I said it was a defrost problem I would still have to leave and come back 3 days later. If you suspect it is the defrost then go ahead and clean out the ice box and let er sit for 3 days. Then until you can fix it just unplug it once a week like grandma did back in the 40s before auto defrost. That's all the smart pills I have. Post a model and I could be a bit more specific because you could have adc or a timer a control board instead of a mercury based control and in that case their is much more to check. For instance if you had an old schoo timer, it might be stuck in defrost. It might just take moving that timer screw forward to get it unstuck. Don't know until I see a model number. More here
