Common Whirlpool refrigerator problems include the refrigerator not running, the lights not working, temperature issues and the appliance making excessive noise. The majority of these common issues can be solved without the help of a professional.
If the refrigerator is correctly plugged in yet does not run, the temperature setting, evaporator fan, defrost timer, compressor relay and compressor motor should be checked. If the refrigerator does run but the lights aren't working, bulbs or fuses may have blown. If the refrigerator is experiencing temperature issues, the temperature controls and door seals should be checked. If the refrigerator is making excessive noise, the refrigerator should be placed on a level surface and its drain pipe should be checked for obstructions.
