This one sounds like the defrost timer is not working and you are not getting a defrost cycle every 6-8 hours (or when needed). Another issue could be that air (moisture) is getting in from a leaky door seal, etc. and causing the freeze up. If you have a sealed system problem where the cooling coils are not uniformly frosted up then the defrost thermostat will not "know" there is an ice condition and therefore not go into defrost mode (same issue if the defrost t-stat is bad). After you have ALL the ice out of the unit it would be a good idea to take the interior rear cover off so you can view the coils. Start the freezer back up and watch over the next 1/2 hour or so to see that the entire coil is frosting up uniformly. If it isn't you may have a plugged system, a leak causing low refrigerant, etc. If over time the coils look uniformly frosted up you may have a defective defrost heating element itself (no heat, no defrost sort of thing). The defrost elements can be checked with a multimeter for continuity if you know how to do that sort of thing. It's hard to know a person's ability by these forums or if they can tackle certain test procedures.

SOURCE: Whirlpool ev200nxr upright freezer not cooling.

It is most likely the relay and overload or the thermostat.  What is the complete model # on the sticker inside the freezer?

SOURCE: Freezer runs constantly

not necessarily, is it maintaining temp? all food staying frozen? especially ice creams if stored in there. most newer freezers displace the heat generated while cooling the food through copper lines running through sides of unit, helps to cut down on air temp differences between the inside (0 degrees) and outside temp to prevent moisture and possible condensation causing premature rusting of unit

This could be a bad controller since you had a power outage, or even a bad motor. Look in your operator's manual and see if there is a reset button somewhere near the motor.

Unless you are well versed in electronics and have the proper equipment, you'll be unable to diagnose the control board anyway.

As a last ditch effort, which sometimes works, unplug it for about 5 minutes and then plug it back in. Make sure your thermostat is turned to the correct setting.

Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack

Have a Whirlpool 15.8 cu.ft. Upright Convertible Freezer/Refrigerator Model EVL165NXRQ & use as freezer. It is constantly running with a humming or buzzing noise. What is causing this?


This unit has several fan motors, it could be one of them. If so you may have to replace the motor

Upright whirlpool freezer is not freezing. fan motor comes on, light comes on but is not getting cold. how can I trouble shoot the problem?


Could be the cold control thermostat that is the problem. You didn't provide your model number so couldn't get specific here. I did find another forum thread that might give you more clues: http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/threads/36458-Whirlpool-freezer-cold-but-not-freezing

Upright whirlpool freezer make loud noise when it comes on


This noise is the fan motor going bad because a bearing is worn out. You need to replace the fan motor before the compressor goes out.

My ice cream is melting and things have started to thaw


Turn the t'stat up to 9. You want to save the meat and ice cream. It sounds like you may be losing freon. Get it looked at soon so you won't come home and find meat soft and ice milk.

Whirlpool freezer which is non frost is making ice and freezer stop working


I would first unplug the freezer, let it thaw, and then plug it in to see if the motor kicks in. If that is to no avail, then you could be looking at a bad motor.

Door will no vacuum seal closed


Are you sure compressor is running? If it is make sure the evap fan is running. You should be able to hear the fan when you open the door. If ypou do not hear a fan running then fan has gone bad. 4390914 and approx cost is rediculous in my mind but it is approx. 150.00 to 160.00 . Crazy for a fan motor.
