Ok 1 problem many symptoms :)

First check if freezer is iced up... If so

1 is your freezer fan running? if not possible defective fan, check if it's wired with the defrost thermostat if it is suspect faulty defrost thermostat.

2nd does your defrost heater work? if your handy with an multimeter put it on the audible option check the defrost heater if there's sound it's good if no sound well your defrost element is fried.

3rd is your condenser clean?
if it has a fan, is it running? if not change fan and clean condenser

4th is the compressor running?

touch the discharge line (the skinny one) from the compressor it should be hot really hot if not suspect compressor has faulty relay/capacitor/overload defective.

hope that i can be of assistance

Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

Whirlpool frig. Freezer warm, frig seems ok.


Since the temperature is already 40°, the cold control is satisfied and will not run. Thus the freezer will warm up to 40°.

Frig not getting cold


See if the coils are blocked with ice. Fridge gets cold air from freezer, ice would prevent this thus a warm fridge.

We have a LG Two Side Fridge.


Look for the air ciculation regulator sliding vent between frig & freezer section open accordingly. Set both sides to #3 on dials if frig not cooling to less than 40 degrees, might need new cold/temp controller behind frig dial

I have a Kenmore coldspot side by side- not cooling properly


Setting it to 5 is what the manufacturer recommends. If you set it to 1 and the frig is still not cold, then you probably have a faulty cold control (thermostat)

Frig just not Cold


Check to see if air is blowing into refrigerator compartment.If no air is blowing.It may be that the settings on your dials are not right.If they are and air is not blowing,your evaporator fan is not working,or may be obstructed.

Frig just not Cold


you might have had freon leak out from it sitting unplugged how long were you gone ? plus you need to wait atleast 30 minutes when you unplug your refigerator then plug it back in you cannot keep plugging it on and off it will burn up the compressor / relay overload
