I have a WHirlpool side by side. I have found that to keep it at a steady termperature I need to occasionally open the fridge side door and tap (or bang) on the panel at the top that has the slider temperature settings. I do this and the unit turns on. I forget to and ice starts melting and the whole unit gets too warm. What needs to be fixed?

You probably have a sticking cold control, mode # would help.

Drop the control panel and tap on the cold control or the adaptive defrost board.

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for Whirlpool ED5FHAXSQ00 Refrigerator | AppliancePartsPros.com

Cold control is Item 9 in Section 3 (thermostat)
Adaptive defrost board is Item 6 in Section 3 (CNTRL-ELEC)

The next time it happens just move the freezer temperature control up/down a bit, if the unit/compressor starts then that is the part I would replace.
Do not turn it all the way down to off.
