Re: Whirlpool refrigerator w/ top freeezer

It has a plugged defrost drain. You may need to defrost for 24 hours with unit unplugged and doors open. UNPLUG FIRST!! f still leaks, you need to remove floor of freezer, then the back wall of freezer. Remove ice. At center rear under coils is the drain hole that is plugged up. Use hair dryer to melt ice. Pour hot water in this area to uncover drain. With hot water in area, you can put a 1/4 diam. hose or copper pipe in drain and blow into it while pressing down. It will slowly go through ice, clearing drain.

Refridgerator and Freezer Not Cooling (2 year old fridge)

Some of these had problems with the door light switches between the doors. They also control the fans. The top and bottom both have fans in back. Try opening top door and holding door light switch in. Wait for a couple minutes to see if fan comes on. Try with freezer too. If not coming on may need switch.

Whirlpool refridgerator icing problem

2 things, first off if its under one year give whirlpool a calll, you would be coverd under warr. let them fix it, second i would ask you to open the door and remove the ice from the chute one more time, then check too see that the ice door flap is sealing properly against the chue, if theres a gap warm air will get in. perhaps the door feels real loose as if not sealing at all in which case perhaps a bracket has snapped and needs to be replaced,
