WHIRLPOOL AMERICAN SIDE BY SIDE FRIDGE /FREEZER
I had probably the same problem. After a little discussion with the factory they sent a technician as a "Good Will Gesture." The technician told me it was the control board down by the compressor. I overheard a conversation between he and his central repair office that it was a common problem. The factory would not admit it. I have a feeling the electronic control board he replace (which would have cost several hundred bucks) was probably made in China. Now I'm having more problems with my Ohio made Whirlpool side-by-side. The freezer is working fine, the fridge is not very cold. By the way, the internal lights was one of the keys to the problems.

I have a whirlpool WRF40 IX all refrigerator. The ...
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]

Whirlpool refrigerator is not getting cold but freezer is freezing. Can someone help, please?
As the freezer is working you can probably discount that the reason is low refrigerant gas. The other reasons would be that the fridge circulation fan has failed.
The channel that directs cold air from the freezer is blocked with ice at the rear of the freezer. It happened to my GE and was caused by a failed defrost timer that was icing up the evaporator coils at the back of the freezer.
A service call lasts about an hour including melting the ice with a heat gun..

Whirlpool refrigerator compressor
I would seriously NOT recommend doing this! Trying to run a 110 volt appliance at 220 volts is too much power for the electrics inside the refrigerator (or any 110v appliance) to cope with. You will 'Fry' the electrics possibly even risking causing a fire.
Do you have a model or serial number for this refrigerator? You might have to see if you can source one online and import it from the US. That could get expensive!
A simple and obvious answer here if the part is so difficult to get, is to buy a whole new refrigerator. Compare the cost of both options as it may be cheaper to replace the whole appliance.

Refrigerator not getting cold
There are several causes for a refrigerator that doesn't cool, including dirty condenser coils, poor ventilation, improper installation, faulty or dirty gasket seals, unorganized food storage, appliance location and malfunctioning internal parts.
