Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker
Refrigeration is not cold fan runs but compressor does not turn on.?
You probably have a bad overload/relay . This piece pluggs onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires plugged onto it . You can easily replace this piece . Take your model number with you , they will have to look it up on the parts list . If you had given it here , we could have given you the part number .

Fan & compressor should turn on and off together - you have a faulty control board, might be a burnt resistor - this is the common cause and can be fixed with a new board.
if board is not the problem (in rare cases) then your compressor is shot. I hope it's just your control board, compressor repair is bloody expensive :)

could be the fan - take back panel off and check it runs. could also be the compressor shutting down on overheat after running a while
