    The outlet of the drainage pipe must be partially blocked with some organic material which is also following the freezing/thawing process thus only releasing when totally soft & refusing to do so when frozen..........sodeep

Hi, check to see if both the fans are running or check and see if there is frost builing up inside the freezer. Are the condesor coils clean? These coils are located under the refrigerator near the compressor.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Have extra older Frig in th garage Mod 596.72232200


Sounds like a intermittent problem with the defrost timer. Sometimes they get stuck. Check continuity of the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. If both are good then replace the defrost timer, that should solve the problem.

Whirlpool frig. Freezer warm, frig seems ok.


Since the temperature is already 40°, the cold control is satisfied and will not run. Thus the freezer will warm up to 40°.

Oklahoma Freezer cold fridge warm fan gets Ice build up !


You should not have to manually defrost. Your auto defrost system is not working. Check the timer usuall in the frig compartment near the thermostat ( a small hole, use a screwdrive flat tip 1/4" to rotate the timer till it clicks starting the defrost cycle) check freezer in 10-15 min should be defrosted if not you will need to check the heater and thermostat located behind the rear or bottom panel of the freezer.

The defrost timer could be under the box in the front behind kick panel or in the rear by the compressor.

Frig too warm, freezer too cold


if there is ice build up you have a defrost problem. either the heater bimetal thermostat timer or evap fan could be bad. you could also have a stopped up drain. if the coils get too much ice build up the air wont beable to travel through them and the bad air flow will cause the fridge to become warmer

Frig not getting cold


See if the coils are blocked with ice. Fridge gets cold air from freezer, ice would prevent this thus a warm fridge.

Frig warm, Freezer Cold


I have experienced this with other refrigerator freezers. The most likely cause is that the warming element in your automatic defrost system is no longer working. Ice is building up on the cooling coils and this prevents the refrigerator from getting cold. I have always called an appliance repairman to fix (~$150). If you're handy you can try yourself, but you still have to buy the part at retail. Good Luck
