Whirlpool fridge/freezer ARC 7050

see if you can remove panel inside freezer to see if its full of ice all over condenser .Even if you already defrosted for 1 day..If its full of ice ..Then the DEFROSTER COIL is not working and not melting the ice on condenser and then stoping the cycle therefore compressor will stop running..Also there should be a a couple of thermal switches on the condenser(two wires) if this is bad then there is no cycle..goodluck

My whirlpool fridge is hot, took the cover off of the coils inside freezer, look ok. Took back cover off of the back and the compressor is hot

Hi jason;
Shall take it that you have a Side by Side setup? If so with rear cover off, when you start it does the cooling fan come on beside compressor? Also remove front grille and clean front condensor coils, full dust and hair all problems can happen. (like blocking of car radiator). Try these if fan doesn't work, replace.

Fridge side is not cooling below 50

if the front panel was full of lint then the coils inside are likely really clogged ... usually the front panel at the bottem of the fridge comes off .. you need a flat attachment on your vacuum to get between the coils .. you can also use a long bottle brush but it gets messy .. you might be able to get at the coils from the back .. there is a cardbord screwed on that once you remove, you can get at the fan and coils ... make sure its turned off/unplugged before doing this .. once you have cleaned the coils then you might wait a few hours or overnight with power off and doors open if you can .. the evaporator inside might be iced up ...that should thaw it ... put towells down to soak up any water that comes from the melting ice .. i usually put everything in insulated picnic baskets while the thing thaws out ... maybe a neighbor would lend you some freezer space ...
