SOURCE: fridge not cooling
Most of the time on a whirlpool the problem is the relay on the compressor sometimes called the start device. I would replace that first. If you need help finding the part let me know. I will need the complete model # from the sticker inside the fridge section. You can look it up with diagrams at http://www3.sears.com/.

hey Bob I'm gonna steer you in a differnet direction. does you refrig have electronic controls or just plain ol adjustment knobs? If just plain ol adj knobs try turning the both knobs all the way off then all the way back on to the coldest setting. then firmly tap the knobs with the handle of a screwdriver or butter knife especially the one that actually has the off postiton. this is the thermostat and i'm thinkng it has gone bad on you. you mentioned that nothing was running so if the compressor relay was bad you would still hear fans running.
if this doesnt work I would need you to give me a model number off of the unit so I could point you in the right direction and help you do some continuity tests. thanks peyton

I am told if you measure two terminals and note the two with the highest resistance. Then measure each of the two terminals with the highest resistance to the common terminal they the two additional readings should read the same as the two terminals with the highest resistance when adding them together. If after adding the two there is more than 1/2 ohm difference one of the windings is shorted.
