Defrost the unit for two days with the doors open...I know you're going to lose your contents. You may have ice on the coils internally. Next make sure you've cleaned the external coils under the unit. Leaving liquids open inside the unit or setting it colder than required will both cause issues like the ones you've got. Also, be sure all air vents inside the unit are unblocked and the door closes tightly all around.

Also have the same problem of flickering Whirlpool American Fridge Freezer display, which seemed to start when I changed the filter.

in the freezer section there is a 6 screws. unscrew them and remove the back panel. there will be 2 wires attached to the panels, remember where they go. you will see a metal evaporator which will be filled with ice. this is the problem. use a hairdryer to melt the ice. this is essential as you mustn't puncture the wall of the fridge with any sharp item. before replacing the panel ensure that everything is dry or ice will reform, and also ensure that the fan blades are turning properly or cold air will not be blown into the fridge.

Spray a good quantity of WD-40 on the spindle of the fan motor where it enters the motor itself. This should get the fan working smoothly with no noise. This will probably solve the other problems, as the fan prevents various components from overheating and shutting down.

Hi, I am a Refrigeration Contractor, and have seen this problem many times. You say that fan motor is working at the lower back which is the condenser fan motor and the fan inside freezer which is the evaporator motor. With the ice build up and no cooling, you have a faulty defrost timer. This keeps the ice from building up and a balance through out the unit, an even temp. You may be able to replace this yourself, if you are inclined to give it a try.It is a electrical timer clock, normally located at the back of the unit on the bottom corner, not positive the side, but it has 2 screws that hold it in place. When looking at it, it will have what appears to be a nylon adjustable screw head that is made to where you should (not) be able to adjust it with a regular driver. Now, sometimes they are located elsewhere and you will have to hunt for it. If you have a schematic pasted to the back, it will lead you to it and will be marked DFT. Depending on this timer, it may or may not have a capillary copper line attached to it leading to the freezer.These are more difficult to replace. Most are small and easy to remove. It is the defrost timer, and will have you up and back online. Best of Luck, and Sincerely,
