Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Compressor stopped running. Fan and light continue to operate normally. Full voltage at outlet. What could be wrong other than a shot compressor?
There compressor run time is strickly controled by the temperature control. the fan runs as long as the fridge is not in defrost. you may try a heavy wrap on the temp control witch has a small set of points in it witch may be worn out . the only other comon part is the compressor start relay mounted on the compressor where the wiring enters the compressor. you will find one wire goes to the relay and the other to the thermal overload. if you have a voltage meater you can check to see if the power is actualy making it to the compressor. best of luck .. please post feadback
