Default Freezer not cooling properly
Model Number: ET8FTEXKQ02   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years

My refrigerator runs okay and freezes properly, then shuts off and doesn't come back on and things start to thaw and melt in the freezer. We took the freezer apart to clean it after the thaw and there was a slight bit of frost on the back, but it melted as soon as the freezer turned off.

Condenser Clean ? may be a sealed system problem.

It's possible to have bad contacts. Only thing is you said a light frost. Usually indicative a a unit cooling poorly either due to a restricted airflow (evaporator,condenser) or refrigerant problems.
