You have to do these checks. Check for build up on the condenser coil behind the fridge. Check for MASS build up of frost in the freezer section. If you have that, unplug the unit for 3 days and let it defrost. You will have to check the parts on your evaporator to see if they're operating properly. Also make sure the compressor is even running. Try turning the fridge on. If you're not getting a hum out of the compressor but can hear it clicking, you more than likely have bad start components on the compressor. Also if the compressor isn't running, try tapping on the temp display/thermostat where you adjust the temperature if it starts, you probably have a bad thermostat. The fridge sounds like its been running for 2 days and it's dead hot in the unit, you have a system problem and should consider buying a new one.

Generally, ice cubes sometimes get stuck on the flexable cover and will not close properly if they get stuck between the flap and the chute. A hair dryer blasting on the flap will dislodge them and let the mechanism close properly

There is a wire lever that allows for the icemaker to be turned off. If it is in the up position the icemaker will not make ice.

there is a magnetic vinyl covered seal glued all around the door frame to seal the refridgerator from escaping cold. If this seal has come loose, it will adhear to the door frame a little after opening and then be pulled back and make a slapping sound. Check this seal to be sure it is not torn loose.

Most refrigerator Manufactures have tested these machines in hot and cold weather and weather will effect operation and electricity consuption.
As far as cold weather goes It would run much better in cold weather than hot. As far as it being in the garage : It will wear on it faster. The humidity is not good on them and they get more dirt through the system and will need its normal mantenance more often. not to mention bugs and rodents like to find a warm place to hid with fee dinking water and a refrigerator provides that for them.

WHIRLPOOL WRF40 Solution to this problem!!! very easy ----I assume you have a problem with the control board switching on and of erratic when you pass setting 3 on the LED display, the designers of this fridge left the calculator at home that day, ask a technician to replace the Resistors 5, 6 & 7 (330 OHM 1/4 watt) on your electronic control board with 680 OHM 1/4 watt. This would solve the problems with this board, the LEDs will not be as bright as they were but still highly visible. Questions? [email protected]
