Whirlpool fridge walls cracking inside

The walls of my 2 1/2 year old fridge are beginning to crack. This must be a defect in material. I called Whirlpool and was told that I would have to pay to have someone look at it. My last fridge was Whirlpool and never had one problem in 21 years. This one already has had a broken ice maker and the temp is not consistent. Don't I have any recourse here? What happens when the cracks get bigger?

    I have a Whirlpool side by side refrigerator door dispensing system. I realized about 4 months after we purchased the fridge what a bad choice we had made. The workmanship is terrible, constantly having to replace drawers, shelves, and now the interior is starting to show cracks. I contacted Whirlpool and the representative stated that it must be the way I handle my fridge...too much weight in drawers and on shelves that are causing the problem.

    My Whirlpool refrigerator is about 10 years old and has developed cracks on the inside wall. How do I repair this so the cracks will not widen?

    I have the same problem with my Whirlpool Side-by-Side. First the compressor went out then once it was repaired the left interior wall cracked bad with several large long cracks. I have the extended warranty purchased from Best Buy but can't get anyone to come out and take care of the problem. I am NOT a Satisfied Whirlpool or Best Buy customer. Never will I buy another.

    My refrigerator is also from Whirlpool and it is almost 5 years. Since the begining I have hated it. (My husband bought it). We have had the ice maker replaced, the door handle had to be replaced last year and a month ago a stress crack showed up on the side wall of the freezer. Now the ice maker is not making adequate amount of ice and decided to test a theory and turn off the freezer and re-set it and sure enough the water lines to the icemaker are freezing, hence the reason we get no ice. I am fed up with it too. My refrigerator is covered under the home warranty we bought years ago, now I am about to see if this too was a waste of my hard earned money.

All due to the excess buildup of ice. I removed the ice tonight.. will tell you if this fixes noise problem. Also our fridge was not cooling ..freezer ok.. hope this fixes this problem too- otherwise i'll test the fan (located behind panel in freezer compartment.

Whirlpool Refrigerator Internal Liner Cracks

If it is a Kitchenaid brand, the liner is covered under full factory warranty for up to 5 years. (See your warranty guide page). I am the Svc Mgr of an Authorized service center and relayed to one of my customers this morning, that if they took photos after the repair was made and call customer service, they will tell you where to send them. If...and they will agree the repair is un-sightly, you get an exchange. I am not sure it will work with the Whirlpool brand even though they are in the same family ** all made by same company, Kitchenaid cost more and comes with a longer warranty.... hope this helps.

Frig liner is cracking

I have the same problem on my 3 year old Kenmore Refrigerator. I cleaned out the refrigerator and noticed the cracks. I don't know how long they've been there. I called the service guy out and he said it's a known problem. He said the plastic wasn't poured right into the mold. He told the only solution is a silicon type caulking or a patch. The patch involved cutting pieces of liner from a sheet and basically glueing them over the cracks. BOTH SOLUTIONS are unacceptable. I am beginning the process of complaining (lot of good it will do). If this is a known defect, SEARS should stand by their product and make it good.
