Freezer and refridgerator stopped getting cold but is still running.


Honestly, if the unit is over 10 years old, buy new to pay for itself in energy savings. Usually the thermostat is the first problem. Thw second is the compressor. The compressor usually takes months to show signs of weakness, but the thermostat is more sensitive, and will go belly up first.

Refridgerator is not blowing out cold air.


Inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel there is a defrost timer. There also should be a small opening to turn the timer clockwise slowly until you hear refrigerator compressor stop running. The timer if working properly should return the refrigerator to operating after about 20 minutes. If not I believe the timer may be defective and need be replaced. Try this first and let me know, Thanks, Sea breeze

Whirlpool Top-Mount Refrigerator Freezer warm, cracking noise


8yr old? Buy a new one. The cracking sound is from expansion and contraction of the cabinet and ice cooling or defrosting. It can be as simple as a bit of a top up of refrigerant, but can also be that your compressor has worn down the valve plates and therefore is not producing sufficient pressure throught the system.

Water drains from freezer compartment into refridgerator


If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me

Whirlpoor Refridgerator 10-12 yrs old


I had a whirlpool fridge that did the exact same thing. Sometimes it was loud enough to wake me up at night! It is the compressor shutting down. I had it for several years untill I purchased a larger one, and then gave it to a girlfriend at least a year ago. Its still working good today. So if you can tollerate it, just live with it. Otherwise change the compressor.
