Possibile control board that controls fans and defrost cycle.Looks like you have water droplets by fan motor and frost on the damper control that makes me think that fan is not working all the time.Is it possible door could be left ajar?

Not any more than it has for the last 8 years. It has never done this not even a little in the past. I am going to kick myself for this but where is the control board? If it is bad, I can assure you its not easy to get too. This thing hates me.

There is also a air return on the bottom of that drain pan to the right that maybe plug up with ice.Maybe take some of the lower bins out in fresh food and make sure that you get all the ice out of there and make sure its clear before putting it back together .

The control board, part # W10135090 is #18 on the diagram and is back by the compressor as dab said.

This may help if  the touch controls is about the same as far as putting it  in defrost.There should be a diagram somewhere there to tell you maybe its by the control panel in there and you have to pull it down to get to it.

I found your model # from one of your first post and you have no touch tone board and A.J has the correct control part number.Good luck.

Thanks guys. It is still defrosting. Will keep you posted. No chance it could be the defroster element being bad? Should I order that too?

Oh my, 175 dollars. Ok. Can this thing be accessed by the back of the fridge or do you have to lean it back? In the diagram it looks like it might be accessible from the back. Anyone replaced this before?

It finally defrosted and I put it back together for now. I will order the part. Do you think I should replace the heating element too? If it was your fridge, would you?

If the defrost heating element works I don't see any point in replacing the element.

I have worked on a lot of Whirlpool refrigerators, but have never worked on one with this type of board in it. From looking at the diagram I would say the board can be access from the back without having to lean it back.

What do you think dab?
