Possibly freezer drain blocked causing ice build-up behind back freezer wall. This internal wall should be accessible by removing screws.Check fan motor in that area is working and also check that all door seals have no cracks or tears. This can cause ice build-up and motor to run longer than normally. benham's suggestion another possibility.Naturally have power off when dismantling anything.

SOURCE: Fridge side works, but the freezer doesn't

Hi, there is a common fault with these side by side models, the electronics fail in many ways. The first sign of failure is either due to the compressor not working or the 'evaporator' (the cold bit) ices up and air can't pass through it to cool the freezer and fridge.
You can buy a kit to repair the boards for about £30 on ebay
Look for Whirlpool repair
An engineer would charge £200 +
Hope this helps

SOURCE: FREEZER SIDE TOO MUCH ICE FRIDGE SIDE NOT TOO COLD

If it has ice buildup on the back wall inside the freezer, it appears to have a defrost problem. Unplug it, put your food in another unit (or ice chests), open the freezer door and let it thaw out overnight for at least 12 hours or more, or until all the ice has melted from *behind* the back wall. Then close the doors and run it for 4 hours and check to see if the fresh food side is cold. If it is, call a repairman to fix the defrost problem. That could be a burned out heater, terminator, or defrost timer depending on your exact model.

Check the water line where it goes into the freezer door at the bottom hinge.
OR

The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

If it's coming out of the freezer at the door-
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.
OR
Is the drain pan overflowing with water. If you have a water filter and it gets stopped up it can divert the water to the drain pan causing too much water.

Trubleshoot refrigerator staying cold enough


First review the troubleshooting steps in the instruction manual. Check the freezer and frige temperature setting control knobs. Make sure the fan, coils, compressor etc. are clean. Check the door seals, especially at the bottom. If all that does not work, do some more online research (which is what I'm up to right now because I am faced with the same problem).

Problem with fridge ice maker


assuming the freezer is cold enough and that you have a valid water supply hooked up, either the icemaker is bad or the water valve is bad, best idea is to replace both.

Admiral side by side


All the cold air from your freezer gets pushed into the fridge with a fan in your freezer section. So your problem is from the fact that this cold air isn't get to your fridge.
- the door that allows this cold air into the fridge, normally in the top left corner of the fridge, is stuck shut and needs replacement.
-the freezer isn't defrosting and restricting the air flow
-the temp controller for the fridge is damaged and thinks that the fridge is cold enough.
