What is the temperature of the freezer and fridge? What Is The Setting Of Both? Is this an actual new unit? If yes call for service. Check and make sure the lights are off when the door is closed. Check door seals, check condenser coils for lint. Also Is CONDENSER fan is operating.

SOURCE: new Refrigerator not working properly after being tilting while unloading

You can power the refrigerator on after 3-4 hours, as per _any_ manufacturer's instruction manual. But seriously, all you need to do is give it about 3 hours and you will be fine.

SOURCE: My whirlpool refrigerator (Model ET18DK) does not cool

Most likely one of two conditions are the root of the problem. Either the fan in the freezer is stalled or the defrost system has failed. The fan in the freezer should run any time the comressor is running; if it's not, there's your problem. If you can hear the fan, check for frost or snow developing across the back panel in the freezer. Local repair service could probably supply replacement parts quickly for defrost failures (most likely a bad terminator if defrost system isn't working).

Whirlpool model et18tk and the side of the fridge gets hot? It it junk?

This is normal unless the refrigerator is not cooling properly. There is a pipe that goes around the door that carries hot Freon to keep the doors from sweating where the cold inside meets the warm air outside. This area will become extremely hot should the airflow below the refrigerator become obstructed or the condenser fan below the refrigerator not be working properly

Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer not working

What is your model number? This model number will be very important in resolving the problem your refrigerator may be having.

Can you look at the rear wall of the freezer and see if frost is building like in this photo HERE If this is happening on the wall of freezer this is what it will look like behind the rear wall of the freezer HERE Here is a link to a post with the model number HERE Having the model number helps determine just what components may be defective and causing the refrigerator to warm up. Let me know what your model number is and what you see going on. If this is not happening this way tell me so I can advise you on resolving the problem. My contact me information can be found at the top of my website Thanks Sea Breeze
This could be another problem (like a defective fan) other than defrost so please explain how cold is each compartment freezer and fresh food section?
