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
We have it in the garage and turned it on to use during the holidays and it is not getting cold. fans are running but compressor is not. We have it connected by an extention cord could this maybe be the problem.
Cord is probably not the problem however try plugging in something that you know works into the cord. the cord should be 12 guage wire. Two things I'd check first. The Cold control may have gotten turned down to where the unit won't kick on. THe second problem is probably the Start relay and/or overload that is found on the compressor may be bad. There is also a capacitor wired in with the Compressor. Your problem is most likely the start relay is bad. If you don't have a meter to test it, the bad relay should rattle like a baby rattle when you shake it. On newer models a door switch could be the culprit....the compressor will not run when the frig door is open, or an electronic circuit board could have gotten zapped and needs replaced.
