    There are many trusted(?) names in the appliance world. One of the big ones is Whirlpool Corp. They own Maytag, Roper, Amana, Kitchen-aid and others.You will find that a Whirlpool Refrigerator Repair is going to be very similar to most Refrigerator Repairs with the exception of where you will need to get the replacement parts.  Most brands of refrigerators will have different internal workings that,
 although they do the same thing, will work slightly differently so that the correct parts are required.
    Let’s look at some of the common Whirlpool refrigerator repairs that you may encounter.
    My refrigerator seems to run and run alot.
It depends, on the day, the location and the food that is in the refrigerator,
but if you find your refrigerator running all day you may want to look into a few things.
These factors will make your refrigerator run longer.   

Dirty condenser coils.  If these are dirty they will not cool the refrigerator efficiently.  

Check your seals around the door.  If they aren’t sealing properly, clean them.  If it still isn’t working you may need to replace them.

    Another problem you may encounter when dealing with Whirlpool refrigerator repair is it just doesn’t seem to be working.  Now these steps are going to be for refrigerators that are plugged in and the light works, it just isn’t cooling anything or running.  Your first step in this Whirlpool refrigerator repair is to check the temperature setting.
    Sometimes these can get changed on accident and turned down to the point that they don’t have to run to maintain that temperature.  Otherwise, make sure that you have at least three inches of space all the way around the refrigerator and at least one inch above it.  This will allow for adequate air flow.  If you have enough space and things still aren’t working, unplug the refrigerator.  Leave it unplugged for two hours and then plug it back in.  If it doesn't run when you plug it back in you probably have a compressor problem. 

 Chances are something is causing it to overheat and you will want to have a professional take a look at what could be causing that.
