Question about Whirlpool ET8RHMXKQ Top Freezer Refrigerator
There are two openings in the plastic on the top part of the inside of the refrigerator, right behind the temperature selector. A solid block of ice formed in these holes, and I can't get it to melt. Because of that, the inside of the refrigerator isn't cold enough, even though I have it set on the coldest setting. I can feel ito these holes, it's a solid block of ice. I've tried defrosting it with the hair dryer, but it hasn't seemed to do any good in melting it. I can't find my user manual to see if there is a solution to it there. The refrigerator is cool, not cold.
You did not mention the age of the fridge. If the problem has been gradually building up keep on trying to shift the ice blocking the holes. It may go again for the same amount of time since its purchase. If it was a sudden blockage then yes you have a gas leak.

Judging by a similar problem I had with a dehumidifier, you may have a Freon leak or low freon pressure - (It's probably NOT really FREON - but something else).
This is a fair guess - from my dehumidifier problem. A dehumidifier functions the exactly the same way as a refridgerator - except it's not designed to "keep the cold in a BOX." Given the cost of a service man AND the cost of the Freon (it's expensive), you may want to pitch the Fridge and get a new one.
