Neither the freezer or refer sections are cooling? Can you hear if the compressor is running (black soccer ball sized unit underneath)? Could be "stuck" in the defrost cycle (happens a lot).

The fan that keeps the compressor cold could also be clogged. A lot of the time if it is clogged, the sides between the fridge and freezer will be extremly hot due to the freon line that runs through there. The fan is usually found in the back of the fridge behind a panal. Make sure to turn the fridge off before messing with anything. Vacumn the fan and pick out any fibers that may be keeping it from spinning. Turn the frige back on and BE VERY CAREFUL and try to knudge it with a peice of wood or other item (not your fingers) to help get it started. Good Luck!

Whirpool wgi fridge freezer, fridge not cooling?

Most frideges get all their cooling from the freezer. There will be a fan and duct in the back of the freezer that pushes cold air down into the fridge. If the duct is blocked with ice or the fan motor has quit. Your freezer will work fine but the fridge will barely cool at all. Check that the fan runs when the compressor is running, ( turn both temp knobs to the highest cooling and leave door open until comp. comes on). If the fan runs your duct is plugged. If not you need a new " Freezer Fan Motor". Most are simple to replace and cost around $100.00.

Freezer works fridge does not

Needs to be completely thawed for 2 days. Or wlse the circulator fan under the freezer panel inside freezer is not working. Take the plastic bottom of freezer out and let thaw. Then plug in fridge and check if the fan is running inside there. Do not poke around inside there or fridge will be punctured and ruined.

Motor runs, freezer defrosting and fridge won't cool

If you have frozen coil at the back of the freezer section, then the defrost thermostat is usually failing. Allow the fridge to defrost completely overnight. If the fridge restarts cooling immediately after defrost, then the problem was the defrost system. In that case the fridge will stop cooling again in a couple of days, as soon as the evaporator coils restart freezing and the condenser goes under stress with the whole cooling system loosing efficiency.
