Question about GE Â 17.9 Cu. Ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator
Normally fridge runs a little cold in the back. Freezer is fine. The power went out twice over the last couple days, now the fridge is not cold enough. There is no buildup of ice and I think the fans are working. I have no manual (apartment dweller) I don't know where the compressor or basic parts are. Record heat forecast today!
Whirlpool fridge Model ET4WSKXKQ05
In back of the refrigerator is a removable panel behind which is the compressor. Listen for a hum and a click. If you hear those sounds the compressor may have failed. Behind that same panel is a condenser where heat is removed from the refrigerating system. Make sure it is clean and check that the fan operates when the compressor runs.

If the evaporator fan is not running. The fan itself could be faulty or the door operated light/fan switch could be faulty.
If the evaporator fan is running. The fridge is not defrosting and ice has built up on the evaporator and the air is not circulating properly into the fridge compartment. The fan circulates cold air into the fridge and back through the fridge control which is normally just an adjustable flap which allows more or less cold into the fridge depending on the setting. If the fridge is not defrosting, the defrost timer could be faulty or heater element could be blown.
