Question about Whirlpool Gold White-on-White 21.9 cu. ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Ice and Water GD2SHAXLQ Side by Side Refrigerator
About 1 month ago I replaced a starter/relay for our side by side Whirlpool fridge. Today, I started smelling that electrical smell that I smelt just before replacing it. It cost $50.00 to get the part and I really hate to have to pay for this again. Why would it happen again? (The smell I mean) It's still running but I'm expecting it to stop pretty soon. Is there someting faulty in theses compressors?
The Starter Relay consists of various parts depending on the make and model of your unit. Most larger Refrigerators have these 3 components: The relay itself, the Overload, and a capacitor. If you replace the Relay and if another component is bad then you would still have a problem. A service technician could test each component individually. The first move I would make is to use an Amprobe electricians meter and check the amperage that the compressor is pulling. If the compressor is VERY HOT to the touch and pulling a lot of amperage current, than you'd need to have the compressor replaced. THis is usually the case if the unit is approx 10 years give or take. This is a very expensive fix...usually around $500 or more so it's probably worth buying a new Refrigerator if that's the case.
