And how much food do you have in the unit?

Ok I`m showing this unit is over 10 years old .

Does it still keep items frozen , but just runs a long time?

And is the unit setting in an air conditioned space?

Still keep frozen
Not is a/c space
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok ok not being in an air conditioned space will make the unit run more.

and the unit only has to turn off for the automatic defrost model .

which is approx 20-25 minutes ever 8-10 hours.

The newer refrigerators Never shut off unless they are in defrost .

It cost less money to let the unit run then it does for it to start and stop.

Because on start up the compressor uses twice the amount of electricity to start the compressor.

Then is the defrost time a suspect??????
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
defrost timer
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

if the unit is cooling you do not have a defrost timer issue.

if it was an issue the unit would get restricted with ice and that will effect the cooling.

I suspect the only issue you have is that the unit is not in an air conditioned space.

And if that area is over 70 degrees it will start to effect the operation of the unit.

And with it around 10 years old the insulation starts to break down so the unit will run longer /work harder to maintain the set temperatures .
