Question about Freezers
I have a whirlpool frigde, 454Lt it is 10 years old. The fridge is working (ie power and fan are working) but it is not staying cold.
Hi, I am assuming you are talking about the fan in the freezer that is working? If you will take these steps for me, pull the unit out enough for you to get behind it and have room, there will be a panel at the bottom that you can remove. You will have another fan, the condenser fan and coil there. Make sure the temperature control is set for the unit to run and make sure this motor is running. If not, the motor is faulty. If it is running, make sure the compressor is on and running. It will be HOT so be careful, but put you're hand on it and you will know if it is on. If it is not on and it is very hot, more then likely the compressor has failed. You may want to clean the front of the coil while you are back there as if it is very dirty, this can cause high head pressures in the system causing the compressor to shut off. Go through these steps and keep me posted on what you have found and what these componants are doing.

Check the freezer for ice build-up. You will need to remove the rear and bottom covers for this. Frequently, ice will build up in the passageway between the refrigerator and freezer and/or in the defrost drain. If you remove this ice, your refrigerator will resume normal operation.
