My aunt gave me her Whirlpool ET22DQ that stopped cooling properly.  I've checked out the flowchart posted in the sticky thread.  The condenser fan is running, but there is a ton of dust under there.  Tomorrow morning I'll vacuum it out and see if that makes any change.  If not the next question is whether the condenser itself is running.

When I plug in the fridge the air from the freezer does seem somewhat cool but no where near as cool as it ought to be.  When it's turned on I do hear a quiet click now and then, which I think is supposed to be the condenser turning on and off, but I don't hear the typical hum or feel the vibration associated with it turning on.  Then again I haven't really sat and listened so maybe I need to sit with it for a good 10-15 minutes and listen.
