Hi!!

Check
temp. control knobs,
Small fan in freezer
Remove freezer back panel (where the little fan is) and check for iced evaporator coil, if so, unplug unit and use a heat gun or hair dryer to melt ice, make sure the air duct going to the fridge is clear. Once this is done, restart unit.

If evaporator is not covered w/ice, then you may have a freon leak, Call a Service Center to get a repair estimate.

Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck

    I think it may be a freon leak. One of the copper tubes has green stuff around it. Everything else you suggested checked out fine. Do we want freon service or should we just replace the unit? Thanks!!!

  • Rene J Solis Aug 05, 2010

    I suggest you call a tech and ask how much will it be to fix the leak and recharge the unit, then based on his answer, you can make a wiser descision.

  • hale9085 Aug 05, 2010

    It was the relay. $173 fix.

  • demorrian Aug 26, 2010

    Im having the same problem. I think i see a little bit of green around the copper tube, but not a lot. So im thinking it has to be the relay or maybe a leak. How much green was on yours?

SOURCE: whirlpool gold side by side freezer not freezing but fridge is running

Your fan in the freezer is wearing out. When your food in the freezer is blocking the air, the motor is working too hard. After years of using, it needs to be replaced. Get a repair man in to replace with a new parts. My Fridge/Freezer was totally broken and I found this out because the ice was melting. It got fixed and now no problem.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Fridge and Freezer quit cooling properly at the same time.

You likely have a defrost system problem.....call a service company to look at it.

Can you tell me why please?


All the big cooling happens inside freezer compartment. Freezer gives little cool air to fridge compartment. Now when the vent blocks that little cold air cannot go into fridge compartment. Thus your freezer works good but not fridge compartment. Milk goes bad but frozen meet keeps good.....

Vent freeze up either due to defrost problemt, defrost drain line problem, Evaporator fan problem or even can be your damper motor not opening due to unit failure or frozen damper door.

Hello, We have a Whirlpool Gold bottom freezer


I don't know about Whirlpool refrigerator freezers, but my Amana has a temperature control in the freezer that regulates the overall cooling, and then the control in the refrigerator compartment controls how much of the total cooling is sent to the refrigerator section. My advice would be to lower the temperature setting of the freezer, and see if the temperature lowers in the refrigerator as well. Also, you can go to the Whirlpool website and they can help you further.

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling after storm


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).

The fridge component of our fridge & freezer is not cooling enough regardless of how cold I put the setting. Even at 7, it feels like room temperature. I pulled the fridge out from the wall, there are...


Once ice forms on the freezer coils there is no air flow. I had the same thing. I suspect your defrost cycle is compromised. Could be the bimetal switch, defrost timer or defrost heater element.

Whirlpool Gold GB2SHDXPS fridge/freezer has stopped working. It is not cold and food is thawing. The light in the fridge and the freezer is still on but it is not cooling.


can you hear a humming sound coming from the back of the refrigerator, if so that means your compressor is running, if you are hearing a buzz or clicking sound your compressor is trying to start, you may need a compressor. Some whirlpools have a 5 year sealed system warranty that would cover the repair.

I did some research online, and read that the Start Relay is most commonly the problem. My husband bought the part, (about $50) and reattached it to the side of the compressor....and was cold immediately! apparently a very common problem on these fridges.
