Whirlpool Estate series fridge/bottom freezer no longer gets cold

\015 This is an older fridge, we bought it used and have had it for 20+ years with good service. However, for several days now it has not kept contents cold enough--milk clabbers within a few days, in the freezer ice cream is soft. We've cleaned the coils, of course, with little effect if any, and turned the thermostat further toward cold with no change. Suggestions?\015

\015\012\015\012If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer\015\012are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of\015\012cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In\015\012most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.\015\012If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks\015\012and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace\015\012the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the\015\012timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

We have an old Whirlpool Mark 1 Series 8 fridge. The freezer is too cold. How does the temp control work to lower the freezer? It is confusing because the instructions for the freezer air control is opposite of what one would think. It says if it is too warm turn toward A; so in order to turn it lower you'd turn toward D. Yet that doesn't sound right to me and the freezer is too cold.


It does sound as though A should be a higher temp and D should be colder. Might be a typo. Couldn't find a manual with the info supplied. I'd try it both ways and see which way brings the temp up a little. ... Whirlpool Refrigerators

I have a whirlpool Gold side by side fridge model number GS2SHGXKS01 I think. The water stopped dispensing about two weeks ago and now the refrigerator does not feel like it is getting as cold as it should.
