My concern is that it did not run for long periods until this past week. We bought it new 3 years ago. Something is making it run longer and I do not want to keep wasting electric if it can be avoided.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the run time of your refrigerator. It can and usually will be normal for these new refrigerators to run for long periods of time. The compressors are smaller now and with the cabinet design this is usually normal. It's actually easier on the compressor to run then start and stop and they are very efficient. They take hardly any electricity. Now, the condenser should get warm and at times could get slightly hot but should not be real hot or stay hot. If you would like to have a technician check this I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . I hope this will help you.

Thank you... It does appear that the compressor is running. It gets warm... but not hot. I also rechecked continuity across all 3 prongs on the compressor. They are all infinity... which I think is a problem. One other note... there is white residue around one of the joints to the torpedo (I don't know what it's called) looking thing in the copper line. Does that indicate a leak? Many thanks, Rich

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with your refrigerator. On the compressor itself, all you can check is the resistance. Now, even if the resistance checks are ok, the compressor can still be locked (stuck) or have an internal problem with the valves. If you have replaced the starting device and the compressor is running and getting warm but no cooling is taking place, it would indicate an internal problem. It could be the compressor itself or a refrigerant problem. A technician would need to make this type of check and repair. I'm listing a site you can access to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . I hope this will help you.

I have the same model and the same problem, it's exactly 2 years old. The problem is there is a vent on the refrigerator side (left side right about the vegetable compartment (see picture 1) is completely clogged with ice (not soft ice but solid ice) that keeps the cold air flowing into the refrigerator. I have to turn off the refrigerator overnight to let it melt before it works again. The worst thing is, I "defrosted" it on March 22, 2012 and I have to do it again tonight. Every frustrating!!! Is there anything Whirlpool can do about it???

Eddie that is the return air vent and there are some things that can be done to help your problem. Migration of moisture into the freezer and/or refrigerator compartments may create the following conditions, Frost or ice buildup in the air baffle and/or return air duct. Here are some thing you can do, Check that food packages or pans may be holding door partially open. Check that food packages do not block the air return vent. Check door gasket to cabinet flange for good seal. Gasket magnetic surface should have full face contact with cabinet flanges. Also, check that doors do not drag against the cavity liner when closing. Check and correct refrigerator level and door adjustment as necessary. Check cabinet corner covers for air leaks and seal underneath. If along the seams where the liner meets the cabinet, you can get your finger nail into it , the seam needs to be sealed. It is allowing air into the refrigerator.
