Hello from JA

I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

Can you tell me where is the humming coming from?

And how long does this humming last?

And if you open the freezer door do you see any frost or ice on the rear interior freezer panel?

Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok is the noise coming from the freezer or from under the unit?

And I do not see how you can have frost in the bottom of the fresh food section but the freezer section is not getting cold .

Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok the refrigerator is the entire unit.

You mean that the fresh food section is warm then !

Where is this frost in the fresh food section that you need to keep cleaning up?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago

Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok if do you hear a fan in the bottom of the fresh food section behind the crispers?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

are you still there?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
noise behind crisper
Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok so than that means that the fan behind the crispers is not running .that is why you get the frost.

Do you have a Volt-Ohm meter to be able to test the fan to see if it is getting voltage to it or not?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no
Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok so then It has to be the fan or the control that gives voltage to the fan.

I do not suspect the fan being bad ,I lean more toward the control board.

Here is a link to the control board .

The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau.
They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year!
They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!

http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Main-Control-Board/W10235503/2209651?rcaid=1000070

This is the main control board mounted in the rear of the unit under the unit.

If you have any questions just reply back.
