Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
Cooling and freezing function turns itself off within 24 hours...the only way I have been able to keep it working is if I turn the unit off then back on once in am and once in pm...what part do I need to replace? Larry
It looks like the Capacitor Start Relay is failing. It is located either on the starter Relay or mounted on the side of the compressor compartment. It sould have two wires on it, one orange and the other probably white.

the first one sounds like it is slowly leaking freon.

5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked. if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes: 1. low refrigerant 2. no fan 3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals 4. the condensate drain tube is clogged if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s). no air, no fan. Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.

The defrost assembly
consists of three main parts. The defrost thermostat, the defrost heater and
defrost board. Any of the one is not functioning. When thermostat sense the
maximum cooling, it triggers the defrost heater to start heating and this
defrosts the ice collected on the coils and the system works. Both thermostat
and heater are controlled by defrost board. First the thermostat and
defrost heater to be checked, if both check ok by meter and visually, then its
defrost board causing the problem. You can get required parts from
online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect
Before that you can
try manual defrost reset procedure. The manual defrost
reset procedure is as follows : ----First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit
completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected
on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the
water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power
outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and
freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling
cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again.Then go for replacing the parts.-------------------This should
