Insurance claim for whirlpool refrigerator

I have a whirlpool refrigerator (model #EDT171NKWRO; serial #F71776264). We had a 6 day power outage in New Hampshire and now the refrigerator will not run. I can claim it on my homeowner's insurance, but I need an estimate on the model. It was here when we bought the house.

SOURCE: My whirlpool refrigerator trips the main power

Pankaj, Do you have a ohm meter? Sounds like you have something shorting back. First take the meter to the cord. On the end of the cord, you should show no continuity from each male prong to the ground prong on the cord itself. If you show continuity, you have something shorting back. Then I would start with the compressor, Unplug the wires going to the overload and relay, make sure the units unpluged and meter the cord again. If it's ok, then the problem is in the overload and relay. Start there and let me know, if it still showing a short, then we will have to go to the controls, heater, and repeat the process until you find the culprit. Catriver.

SOURCE: I had a power outage. After power was restored

Replace the adaptive defrost control part number 240375803. About $100.00.

It is located in the fresh food section on the top left side behind the plastic panel.

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling after storm


Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

After a power outage tv wont turn on


I get these in the shop all the time, usually when there is a "Power Outage" there is also a "Power disturbance" meaning Spikes, Surges, Transients and the like, are generated at "Drop Off & Reconnection times" These disturbances will Damage anything connected up that has NOT been turned OFF, or unplugged. I then will, at the Clients, behest, write an insurance report, so the client may claim on their insurance policy. As this is something that is usually covered, after all, it was, and is an accident. Always note down any times when events such as this happen, this adds credence to all claims.
You see what happens is when the power is cut off and then reconnected, the doing of that causes all sorts of Sparks, Surges, Spikes, and Overvoltage Transients, ALL of which, will damage the power Supply, and often migrate past that too, and "Get into" the "Other" circuitry, and destroy it too.
This also happens during lightning storms as well, it is prudent to unplug things at these times too. Now many things are indeed resistant to these problems described however, they do not always afford protection 100% of the time.

Automatic ice maker quite working after 7 day power outage


Check to see if the power cable is ok. If your unit has a fuse, you may need to replace that. Looks like the power outage might have fuzzed up the power circitry. If neither of the above works, then you may need to get the machine serviced.

Smells like burned


Since power outages aren't always polite and absolute, your fridge may have been subjected to low line voltages for an extended time and gee, Whirlpool still hasn't figured out how to protect their product from this kind of damage. We lost one the same way years ago in CA; we came home after being gone for hours, smelled the fridge, checked the line voltage which was wandering around 25 volts +- ~2 volts. Enough to burn the compressor windings but not enough to start it.
In that case, the electric company paid for the compressor replacement on our two-year-old Whirlpool. If you can dig up anyone who was noting the line voltage, maybe you can file a claim with your utility.
