I thoguht I had posted the solution. repeating now ask for estimates/ inference from thre persons and deccide for only low cost of repair. If your fridge is more than 5 years old do not proceed specially if the pumping of the compressor is down. Go for a good exchange with a the modern enerrgy effficient models as you can choose from good economic/ luxury ranges and give you about 5-7 years warranty.Invest Well. Good Luck

One of two things either the condenser is dirty,that would be the black coil under the refrigerator,or the condenser fan motor is not running,that would be behind the refrigerator at the bottom behind the panel,at any time the compressor is running this fan should be running,if it is not,the compressor will run and cool somewhat but overheat often and cycle off causing fluctuating temperatures,the motor is easy to change and fairly easy to find on most GE units....hope this helps

Refrigerator is not cold on top, but still cold on bottom.

Sounds as if you have a bad evep. Fan motor. It souldnt by over $40.00. And if the unit still look and works good other than this problem. It's located behind the inside back freezer panel. Diffaculty level in my opinion is a 5 out of a scale of 1 to 10. 10

Whirlpool refrigerator leaking from top of unit

Listened to other posts and figured drain plug was clogged. It was with ice. Removed bottom pan and back panel of freezer, removed ice on bottom, put hot water in drain to thaw ice until it flowed into pan underneath fridge. Thanks for the ideas.
