Since we know the machine is producing cold, that is a plus. The cold is created in the freezer. From here, a fan moves it through vents into the frig. From the frig it goes back into the freezer and makes a big loop.

What you probably have here is a motor to the fan in the freezer gone out. If you want to fix it yourself I'd be happy to tell you how. If you want to know if it's worth fixing, I would say most definitely. I would expect $40-$80 for the fan motor then labor on top of that. The fan part number is 2315539.You should be able to order the part anywhere that sells appliance parts by that number with no problem at all.

Whirlpool Gold freezes up to frige side


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Side by side, freezer very cold, frige warm


Any ice buildup is due to one of 2 problems. Either the defrost circuit is not working properlyor the drain hole where the defrosted water drains down to the underneath pan is clogged. I once found a spider's nest in the drain of a refrig that was in a seasonal house after the winter shutdown.

Very common is a defective (open) defrost thermostat, or a bad defrost timer. But for a unit only 5 yrs old I'd start with the drain hole. BE SURE YOU GET ALL THE ICE OUT. Use hot water, hairdryer etc, so water flows freely to drain pan

Hi,

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.

Thanks

Bottom Freezer working but not side!


Typically the freezer air is circulated into the frige area to provide cooling. If the circ. fan is not working or the air ducts/channels/dampers are blocked with ice, food, etc. then no cool air will get from the freezer to the frige area. Check all the air channels and to see if the dampers are open along with the circulation fan running. The diagrams at the following link should help you see inside better. If your lower circulation fan is running then you likely have an air return/supply channel blocked with ice and will require an old style defrost (unplug unit and leave doors open for 24 hours to melt ice, etc.). If the fan isn't running then that needs to be replaced. Air channels can freeze up if a door is left open slightly overnight or other moisture enters the freezer/frige. http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=ER6AHKXPQ&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0
