Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker
Freezer does not defrost automatically, fan runs, but does not cool down.
If the fan runs but the freezer is not defrosting then its problem of the defrost timer.
The timer should work on
proper timing and off at proper timing .if the timer becomes short it will
remain on for more then required and will remain off when actually required.
the defrost timer is the part which controls the cooling and defrosting in refrigerator .it actually spins as the coldness in the unit. after the temperature reaches to certain coolness it spins back wards and defrosts .if the defrost timer is faulty it will not spin properly and all cooling and defrosting system of the unit will get misaligned. if the timer gets faulty the cooling will reach till over frost and then the fan the coils in the unit will get blocked due to ice built-up and over current will be exerted by the unit to melt that ice. and in this melting ice procedure without defrost timer the unit stops completely .it can effect any section lower or upper or may be both. so the defrost timer at present needs replacement. its like a mini plastic box . color is mostly black or white or creamish . the cost of timer is near to $40.you can get it from

Does the light inside the freezer work? Or, can
you hear a fan, motor, or other sound coming from the appliance? If so,
the freezer is still working. Go to the specific problem you are having
with the appliance. If not, try adjusting the thermostat to a colder
setting. If your freezer still doesn't work, read on.
To check to see if power is getting to the
freezer, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet as the
freezer. If there's power, check the fuses or circuit breakers. If
that's not the problem, contact a qualified electrician to restore power
to the outlet.
If there's power to the freezer but it still
doesn't work at all, there may be a problem with one of these:
Overload and/or relay
The problem with your refrigerator can be
difficult to pinpoint without a clear indication of a specific defective
component. At this point, we recommend that you see help from a
qualified appliance repair technician.
