SOURCE: Kenmore Model # 596.735032.. Fridge is cool, Freezer is not freezing

After pulling the fridge away from the wall and removing the lower right hand panel I noticed that the compressor (big round black ball with copper tubing) was not turning on. I also noticed that there was a ticking or popping sound comming from it every couple of minutes or so. After doing some research online in numerouse forums I decided to try and replace the overheat relay that is attached to the compressor. It only took maybie five minutes at most to change it and the compressor is now working with nice cold air comming into the fridge and freezer. Hope this helps someone else with the same problem.

SOURCE: whirlpool fridge not cooling gone warm air blowing

more than likely the compressor is not starting, it has a starting device on the left side of the compressor which has a relay/overload called a relay, remove the relay and shake it , if it rattles it has gone bad. the relay/overload combination has gone bad and can be replaced with pro41 relay. if the compressor has a run capacitor just eliminate the capacitor when replacing with new relay. connection of the two wires makes no difference.

SOURCE: Whirpool fridge is warm, freezer is working

Check the back wall of the freezer compartment for ice buildup. Sounds like you have a defrost issue.

SafetyDan, you probably have a bad starter. i replaced mine its working again. if after replacing the starter you still have the problem then it's a bad compressor but the starter can be found locally or online for about $40-$70 depending on where you live. i found it online here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=263269

Good luck!

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).

Fridge not cooling whirlpool model gd5rhaxn000


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Water in bottom of fridge


In the back of the fridge way down low on the very bottom you will see the tube. If you think it is clogged. Take a spray bottle filled with very hot water and just a cap full of bleach. Spray it on the drain hole and this will rsolve your blockage issue
