Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/whirlpool fridge does not cool


Hello Eric,

my 4 year old fridge/freeze whirlppol WRID41TS cools less and less in the fridge compartement. The freezer though gets colder and colder, develops ice and snow now. It started about 5 weeks ago, when the fridge leaked water from the top (under the freezer). Any ideas from you would be greatly appreciated!
thanks and regards, evelyn

You have a defrost problem....Since you are from out of the country, I do not have look up for your model.  It will either be a defrost heater, defrost terminator or a defrost control.  If you remove the rear inside freezer panel and using a hair dryer, remove the frost and reassemble and you will be good for about a week....working perfectly until you can get someone in or find the problem your self....  Good Luck, Eric
