Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
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.
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.

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.
