Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Food in door spoils, temp. 60 to 65. Controls on coldest.
The fan on your freezer may have given up thus the cold air inside the fridge doesn't circulate.

As you look straight at the white plastic square: Make sure the edge of the gasket is in place along the outer (in your case, left side) of the door. There is a metal spring near the white plastic square, and the end of that needs to be tucked into the groove of the door, not showing on the outside. Then, line up the white plastic square with the corresponding hole and use the palm of your hand to pop the gasket in, starting closer to the center of the door and working to the WP square area. (should only take about three hits.) Then, line up and snap on the long white plastic gasket retainer strip which runs from top to bottom along the inner edge of the gasket.

I humbly disagree with Sea Breeze. We know the thermostat (cold control) is working because the fans are running and the compressor is hot to the touch. So we're getting power to the compressor. Now, only TWO things will keep the compressor from firing up when it has power supplied to it.
1.) A failed Starter. (that box connected to the left side of the compressor.)
2.) A failed compressor.
Then there are two things that'll take out the starter.
1.) Just a mechanical failure within the starter (blown ceramic disk). Note ---> You can normally tell if a starter is bad just by taking it off the compressor and shaking it. If it sounds like it has pebbles in it... it's bad. If it's solid, it's probably good.
2.) If the compressor locks up or fails, the starter is not far behind.
This Kenmore is made by Frigidaire. My experience with these is that 90% of the time, the compressor has locked up. You said you had access to the compressor... if it's made by Tecumseh (you'll see a blue Indian head logo on the sticker) I can almost guarantee it's failed. (Frigidaire is now putting Embraco compressors in their machines because Tecumseh was such a terrible one.)
All that to say this... you may decide that you want to replace the starter (if it's bad/rattling). If you do, go here and look at parts # 211 & 251 on the diagram... you'll need these. So, all-in-all, it'd cost around $20 plus shipping to replace the starter. If the new starter works? Great! You fell within the 10%... (almost like winning the lottery!) If the starter doesn't work, all you're out is the $20.

If you have a frost build up on the interior back wall of the freezer, you have a defrost issue. This would include a bad defrost control, bad heater or terminator.
If there is not a frost build up then you may have a bad evaporator fan motor.

Hi there .... check if the fan that circulates the air from the freezer section to the refrigerator section is working or if it is ,is it spinning fast enough to throw the air across .....

38 to 42 degrees F The problem with the defrost will need to be fixed and you can check a few things that may save you the cost of someone coming out. Unplug and remove the rear panel in back of the freezer. Defrost with a hair dryer and try to get as much ice out as possible so you can have a look at the defrost heater. Yours is made with a glass tube on the outside of the heating element and if burned out you need to replace both it and the defrost thermostat that it goes through. Hopefully you will try to use my assistance and we can resolve this quickly. Now if you do not see a problem with the defrost heater let me know. Your model has a mother control board and we may need to have a look at it also. Let me know, Thank You Sea Breeze
