Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling!
« on: July 10, 2013, 01:02:59 PM »
Hi,

My whirlpool frig/freezer combo is not working properly. The freezer is working,  but the frig is not cooling.  About a year ago, this problem presented itself and I was told to remove the back cover and defrost the coils.  This worked and I didn't have a problem for a year!  Now, the problem has returned and I was told to defrost the coils again.  This time, it only worked for a week.  What should I do next?  The model number is ED5FVGXSSOO
