Question about Whirlpool 21.7 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator ED22PQXF
Frig runs gets cold stops and won't restart all the time, turn the controlls for the frig it will start eventually or right then, turn them down or off and on and to start the frig somtimes seems to run to long
Start at the basics; shut off, and then remove front grill and if necessary, back covering(s). Vacuum and/or blow compressed air into condenser fins, including coils in the back; especially paying attention to piping that looks to expand or balloon, clean these carefully with a rag and warm water to remove grime; retry. If issue continues, turn up your front thermostat to see if you start to hear continuing clicking sounds from the back, if so that may be your overload switch going bad, in which requires replacing. ee

1.My first suggestion, is to clean out the compressor area located at the bottom of the refrigerator. Refrigerator unplugged from power. Remove the cardboard panel from the bottom, (Watch the water line), and use a vacuum. I also bring the refrigerator towards an open door, and use compressed air to blow it out, afterward. You'd be surprised how much gunk builds up here, and how cleaning it out will help your fridge tremendously! (Good tip for air conditioners also. Power unplugged, case cover removed. Use a garden hose to flush the fins out. Let it dry, reinstall the cover) 2.Your refrigerator may be low on Freon. This requires a professional to purge the system, and reinstall Freon and lubricant.

the thermostat is most likely to go. i would replace that. if you want to make sure and you have a meter handy. set it to then ohms scale. turn off the power remove control cover set a test lead on each side of the control knob. as you go higher your resistance number goes higher. then you no its good. to test the thermostat you would have to turn power on. i dont recommend it unless certified, if seen some things. thanks hope this answer helps.
