Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
I have a Whirlpool side by side refrigerator (model#ED5FTGXKQ01), which has gone warm over the past several days. I hear what I believe to be the relay clicking under the unit, it then sounds like somthing has come on. About ten seconds after you hear the initial on click, you hear the click again as if it is in shutdown mode? I would prefer to do the repair myself, and I can probably get the parts for cost. I do have mecanical ability, but never repaired a refrigerator myself. If it is the compressor that needs to be changed, would basic hand tools be enough to get the job done?
First you need to evacuate the system by tapping it with a valve, then you cut out the compressor tubes and disconnect the wires. Braise the connections on the new one, run the vacuum pump and put new refrigerant, check for proper operation and temperature. Without proper tools might be difficult !!

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
