Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Everything cleaned out completely. Seems to overheat, shut off, and does not turn back on. Freezer thaws, refrigerator goes warm. Can get it to come back on after a day or so. When running, the compressor is relatively warm to the touch, but I don't know how hot the surface should be normally. Help. Anything to do?
If the compressor is inefficent or if there is a restriction in the line (most likely the cap tube) the refrigerant can't circulate. when refrigerant expands it gets cold, when it's compressed it gets very hot. Bad motor windings will do the same. But u said tat u had cleaned the coils. so jus check out if you have a Fan down by the compressor is running. This will also cause the compressor to overheat.
If none of those things are an issue, replace the components on the side of the compresser. Replace all of them. If you have the same problem when you replace the components on the side of the compressor, you have a bad compressor.
Average repair cost for replacing compress can range from 350 - 450$
