Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
The top of the evaporator coils are not frozen and the fan is working. It is frozen at the bottom half of the coils, into the vent leading to the fridge, and at least 5 inches up the vent too, blocking the cold air flow. The drain is not blocked. The condensor fan and unit had a Hoover out a month ago, no joy. I am currently defrosting the whole thing to see if the problem recurs.

Totally Unreasonable if you don't mind me saying so. The person who told you that story was thinking of an absorption unit more than likely.
Your proble is related to the defrost system of your refrigerator. There is a timer that automatically starts the defrost. It energizes the heaters that defrost the cooling coil. After the coil reaches a preset temperature a defrost terminator turns the heater off for the remaining time on the timer cycle. You could have a bad timer (stalled) which would not start the defrost. Locate the timer and turn the clutch head screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. The defrost should take place and will be indicated by water in the drain pan under the refrigerator. If after 25 minutes it does not restart in the cooling mode turn the screw once again to the second click and replace the timer.
If the refrigerator restarts after 18-22 minutes and defrost does not take place your problem is in the heater circuit. Open heater or thermostat (termination switch)

sounds like you have a bad evaporator fan motor, located in the freezer section ,it circulates the air up to the refrigerator compartment

You may have the temp. set TOO HIGH for the freezer, set it in #2, leave the fridge setting in the mid range for now. Check after 24hrs. and adjust as necessary.
