Whirlpool Refrigerator not working -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi all, I have a Whirlpool ED22PC SxS fridge which has stopped cooling on both the refrigerator and freezer sides. Power supply seems to be ok as the interior lights and control panel work, however the compressor, condenser fan and evaporator fan won't start up. When the power is turned on or off there's a clicking sound (relay maybe?) from the vicinity of the compressor but nothin


Hi. Due to the fact that the fans are not operational, this will confirm that the Main PCB has failed. This is the main power control board. It must be replaced, asap. The general location of this affecte ... Whirlpool Refrigerators

Hi, The refrigerator that I have in my house (I am tenant) is Whirlpool gold GS2S. It is a side-by-side refrigerator with an in-door-ice system. The fan in the bottom is working, I can feel the sound and wind, the fan inside the freezer is working too, but the refrigerator is not cooling. I am not sure if the compressor is working because I can listen to the sound in the base of the refrigerator, but is possible that it is only from the fan, I don't know. Thanks, Abel


When a refrigerator isn't cooling correctly, the first thing to check is the condenser. It will appear as a wire mesh or a radiator type unit on the back or sometimes the bottom (usually accessed from the back) Check it for dust, dirt and debris. ... Refrigerators

Our Whirlpool refrigerator (ED0GTQ) is cooling and freezing somewhat on the bottom, but it doesn't seem to be circulating the cold air to the top. The icemaker won't work because it is too warm at the top and anything on the top shelf on the refrigerator side is staying warm. When we checked the fan and compressor, they are both working. (We located it at the back bottom of the fridge) Is there another fan at the top that may not be working? Any suggestions?

I have Whirlpool model # GS5SHAXNL00 with different problems, first the compressor fan was stuck by a bended cardboard. Now, the fan is working but its not cooling and every time I open the fridge door (not the freezer side) the fan stops working. I have to unplugged it and plug it again. If I leave the refrigerator for a while I can hear several click sounds and a high-pitched ringing sound followed by two click sounds. Please, if anyone can help me I will greatly appreciate. Thanks

Whirlpool refrigerator model# ed5fhexlq was working fine. The electric was out for a few hours the other night and now it is not getting cold. The fan is running and the lights come on, but I don't think the compressor is working. Do you I need a new compressor or would it be something like the start relay or a bad circuit board.

Whirlpool ET20DKXAW00 refrigerator. Freezer is cold but does not freeze and refrigerator compartment cool. Compressor runs and shuts off (seems to be working). I do not hear the fan run in the freezer compartment. Could the fan be the problem?

I have a 2001 Whirlpool Imperial Series side by side refrigerator. Yesterday white smoke was coming from out of the bottom left side of the refrigerator. We can not see anything though on inspection. However, there seem to be some burn marks on the relay switch attached to the compressor. We turned it back on and seemed to be working fine. This morning, everything was defrosting in our freezer and now the fan isn't working.


... Refrigerators

Whirepool Refrigerator Should the compressor fan blow air toward the compressor? I thought it should, but if so, my fan blows air away from the compessor, which I believe is the cause for the compressor not working. The refrigerator was working before, so what could cause the fan to reverse rotation. How can I change the fan rotation. I reversed the wiring (120 volt), but it did not help.

I'm still working on the same problem. I have a GE refrigerator model GTS22IBMBRCC. The fans come on but the compressor does not. I assume with the fans running this means the thermostat should be working. I get no voltage on the compressor output J8. If I jumper from Line to J8 the compressor comes on. I believe this means the compressor relay on the motherboard is bad. I'd like verification before ordering the board.


Hi,\015\012Before I would order a board I would make sure to jumper the thermostat. The fans do not always just run when you need cooling, on some units they run contsantly or near continous for air circulation. Find the wires going to the ther ... Refrigerators
