My whirlpool s21w2d freezer is working ok, but refrigerator is not cool
The place to start is in the freezer..Is there ice on the back freezer panel? the freezer cools the refrig section and if froze over..the air will not flow to ff section. we have to make sure the coil is not frosted over...this is the most likely fault...the damper that lets air into the ff section can also be froze and not openning..if you have digital readout you can be sure you have electric damper...See if you feel air flow out of vent in top left corner of ff section. if no air or very little.. look for the freezer coil being froze or the damper stuck shut...of coarse, the freezer fan may not be running or coming up to speed...I use a skewer or something like that to slide it thru the damper and wiggle it around until it slips in further..this opens the damper and lets air in if its bad of coarse...the fix would be..leave it open with skewer until you buy a new damper...if froze up in freezer..defrost with hair dryer and find what caused freeze up situation. This is where you need a little more experience working with multi-meters. UNPLUG and check reading to heater and to defrost thermostat..if ok, the defrost timer is at fault.
