Came home last night to find that the contents of my Whirlpool freezer were slowly melting and the fridge was near room temperature. I cleaned the coils this morning and now the bottom of the fridge is cold, but the fridge remains warm. There doesn't seem to be any air flow from the bottom of the freezer to the top and to the fridge.

The fridge is 6 years old.

Any thoughts?

I goofed on the model number. It should read ED25RFXFW01.

First thing I would check is to see if the evaperator fan motor is running behind the panel inside  the freezer compartment...

Thanks for the reply. I removed the cover at the back of the freezer and saw the fan was not running. I tapped it and it started up, ran briefly (maybe two minutes) and stopped. Any thoughts on what that means or what to do next?

Thanks again.

I think I'll be drinking cold beer tomorrow night. I'm not sure what happened, but it looks like the freezer ran through a defrost cycle of some sorts to remove the frost on the components behind the panel in the freezer. The freezer is now cranking cold air and distributing cool air to the fridge.

I hope to wake to an ice cold frrezer and cool fridge.

Thanks again for your insight.
