This sounds like a defrost problem...if you have ice build up on the back wall of the freezer then it is definitlely in the defrost...on this model you have what they call a terminator switch that sits on the coils in the back of the freezer that should read closed with a meter. then you have the defrost heater that should read closed at all times with a meter. if those both check out ok then there is a board that sits in the fresh food section at the top right hand side under the top cover....this is called the defrost timer board that has a relay that goes bad all the time. I know this is alot of stuff but if you can figure out which of these are bad it will save you lots of money.....Good luck!!!!!

Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

Frig doesn't cool. Freezer works fine. freezer


You have solved your problem :D You need to get that fan blowing. The vast majority of the time that is all you need. Other times, there can be another part controlling the operation of the fan (ADC - Adaptive Defrost Control). Post the model number and I will see if you have one of these ADCs in your appliance :D

Whirlpool side by side - freezer is fine. Fridge not cold


This is a common problem, and worth fixing if the frig isn't to old. The frig is making cold air just fine, which is a plus! All we need to do is get that air to circulate throughout the entire appliance.

Behind the freezer wall is a fan called an evaporator fan. This fan simply blows the air straight up the back of the freezer. From here it enters the frig at the top left and sinks to the bottom. Then it re-enters the freezer and continues its loop :D

So, either the circulation is being obstructed by something (maybe ice build up), or the fan is out.

Behind the freezer wall is the evaporator fan (that has probably stopped moving). Either ice build up (or some obstruction) has stopped it, or it has just served its time and needs to be replaced. Generally I would just replace it. You never know if it has been damaged from ice blockage or whatever the problem may be. If the motor is trying to spin and it is being held in place, bearing could be wearing out or completely gone which will just cause you more pain in the near future. So replace that puppy and you should be all set! :D good luck!

P.S. Naturally, if the fan is fine but you have something blocking the air flow, just fix the air flow problem in an apppropriate manor :)

Whirlpool frig. Freezer warm, frig seems ok.


Since the temperature is already 40°, the cold control is satisfied and will not run. Thus the freezer will warm up to 40°.

Freezer quit freezing


HI,

you can try this suggestion first.

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

thanks,
