Snow in freezer and frig is wet and warmer than usual

I have a whirlpool gold model GR2SHKXKS 00 refrigerator, and all of a sudden there is snow in the freezer and the frig is not as cold as normal and is wet.
The frig was made in 9-01 and came with my house, no booklet or anything-so I have no idea about warranties, or how to fix anything or what is happening or who to call.
Any help is appreciated-thanks in advance!

Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

Frig has suddenly become warmer than usual. Freezer is at 20 degrees and frig at 60. Tried to vacuum coils but very dificult to reach them underneath the unit. Any other hints?


what the problem most likely is a failed part of the defrost system Do you see a bunch of frost built up on the back wall of the freezer? If you do frost build up, take off the back wall of the freezer and replace the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. A hair dryer could be used to melt the built up frost from the coil behind the back wall. Another part that will cause frost build up is the defrost control, that isn't the freezer behind the back wall but instead it is part of the main computer board on the back of the refrig. I would replace heater/defrost thermostat first though, since they are the most likely to fail parts.

I hope my answer will help you to fix your refrigerator,

Upper freezer temp. alright Lower refrigerator to


Sounds like the airflow balance is off. When you turn the aircontrol to max what you are actually doing is starving the frig compartment of cold air, cold freezer, warmer frig. It is recommended to set both controls to middle and see if it helps the problem.

Freezer stays warmer than frig


Jim, chk for air diverter in wrong position
the fridge cools from freezer air flow direction control. Like a door. The more/less controls may be messed up.

I have a side beside whirlpool refrigerator/freezer. today I noticed the strip between the frig and freezer was very hot and coil under frig are almost too hot to touch. It has been this way since about...


no danger of fire, they(Whirlpool) run a copper heat tube through the center mullion of frig, to cut down on amount of undesirable condensation that may build up between doors, reason for extra heat can be from leaving door open too long, perhaps the coils under the frig need to be vacuumed,
