    I have a Whirlpool ARG917 intergrated f/f.

    Its working fine in the lower freezer part, however the top fridge part has a problem.

    The top half of the fridge is iced up, the lower half is ice free, and the back wall is warm to the touch in that area.

    I,m wondering what the problem could be, does it need a new compressor, or regassing or what?

    If its likely to be expensive parts wise, I would likely buy a new unit but I,m redoing my kitchen next year and want the existing unit to hang in there if possible.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    I think I would try de-frosting it first.
