I have been having a problem with my Whirlpool side by side refridgerator
The refridgerator is approximately 16 years old and recently it has been
stopping, and then after a number of hours it begins cooling again. When it
is working it cools well. When it goes it goes on after shutting down it
may work for days at a time, perhaps up to a week.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be causing this problem
and how I might troublehoot it.

After the compressor shut off for about an hour crank the thermostat up
and listen for the compressor to start. If it doesn't you might have a
problem with the thermostat or defrost circuit. If the compressor tries to
start but makes a clicking noise (cycles on overload) then you may have a
problem with the compressor electronics. If you don't know how a fridge
works, this all can be confusing. Find a blog on the net with some
troubleshooting techniques as that may familiarize you better with your
fridge than a news group might. www.google.com then search for "repair
