Not sure if the compressor is running. If not, you'll need a repair man. Since fans are running, most likely the thermistor. Also, if you haven't unplug from the wall, wait 10 seconds then plug back in; this may reset the control board. The link below may help. GE Refrigerator Not Cold Enough

MY FREEZER COMPRESSER ON SUB ZERO SIDE BY SIDE STARTS AND RUNS FOR 3 SECONDS THEN STOPS. IT WILL NOT CONTINUE TO RUN. FRIDGE IS OK.


This sounds like the start winding is trying, and the run winding is not. Check all capacitors. Check to make sure the wires are solidly on the compressor. Check the klixon switch, it should have continuity.

Whirlpool side x side fridge will not cool. All fans working and compresser is working. No frost.


is the fan at the condenser side is included in the fans that you checked?.
if it is running and compressor is running, no frost at the evaporator, i believe you either had a leak ( no refrigerant) or the capillary tube clogged ( this second option is least likely to happen but it could happen.

both solution would require qualified tech to service the refrigerator.
