    Did you check your compressor relay If it seems ok then the thing to do next would be to clean the condenser coils real good. Make sure you have the compressor fan running.

Your refrigerator probably has an issue with its "damper control assembly", which regulates cold air coming from the freezer compartment. Contact an appliance service company.

when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing?sounds like the air isn't moving,there's also a damper on the fridge side,the door opens to let the cold air in and then closes,make sure the door is opening,you can take the cover off and put an ice cube on the twirled up metal part to close it and put your hand on it to open it to see if it's working

Whirlpool stopped blowing cool air. Unplugged


It sounds as if your defrost timer has failed. Unplugging the unit over night allowed the unit to defrost. If unplugging it overnight or by using a stnd fan blowing into the freezer section for 90 minutes results in the fan blowing cold air then your unit is not defrosting. Most often the defrost timer is the problem. However there could be other defrost circuit like the thermostat or the defrost element. In order to provide you with the correct solution and defrost timer location you should privde your model number for further instructions.

Refrigerator not cooling but freezer is


Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.
