Default Defrost timer ?Refrigerator worm 4 days. Now working again
Model Number: ehd251mmnro   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years

Defrost timer??? My Whirlpool side by side was worm for 4 days with only the bottom shelf of the freezer remaining frozen and the bottom shelf of the refrigerator somewhat cold. This morning it's nice and cold again and I can hear more than just the fan running now. It is very old, (over 23 years) but very well built and quiet. We would like to keep it. Can you help??

Remove the front bottom grill and the rear cover and make sure everything is clean. Make sure both fans (in the freezer and on the back) are working properly.

Thank you Gene, My wife cleaned the bottom reciently. The fan in the freezer is working now, but only the fan under the frige was working during the trouble, no other sounds. Any merit to my questioning the defrost timer?

Possible the fan in the freezer (evaporator fan) is the culprit.
