Whril Pool Fridge
 
Hello everyone this is my first visit here, and I could use some help with this problem. My whirl pool fridge is frosting up in freezer and isnt freezing and fridge section is too warm. I can unplug it for a day and plug it back in then it works great for a while till it does it again.:help:

A frost free failure would be most suspect!

Gary, my guess would be that the refrigerant level is low, but without checking pressures, it's only a guess.

Then the freezer wouldn't normally work until it frosts over.

I'm betting the answer is in one of the two links Jeff provided.

P.S. Low refrigerant imo is seldom the problem you describe. I think Jeff will b ack me up here. It usually a frost free problem or maybe a blockage.
