warm freezer-cold frig Whirlpool GB2SHDXTQ01

Recommended Posts


Whirlpool Refrigerator Model GB2SHDXTQ01  -  The freezer is on the bottom and stopped freezing, everything thawed.

The refrigerator is still cold, just not as cold as normal. I've searched online, but everyone seems to have the opposite problem.

Both door gaskets are good. Went ahead and removed everything out of both fridge and freezer last night to make sure nothing was blocking any air flow. Checked underneath with flashlight and a long skinny brush (which I use monthly to clean the coils.) It's against one kitchen cabinet, but the other side is open to the room. Will pull it out later tonight to pull the back off if I can. Any suggestions on what to check for?
