Question about Whirlpool GD2SHGX Refrigerator

1 Answer

The refridg. makes a clicking sound is not cool and smells foul.

This refridgerator is about 10 years old. It makes a clicking sound and is not cooling properly. There is also a foul smell. I have tried turning off and defrosting (with no food in it) for about 24 hrs then plugged back in but still there is the clicking sound. I have dusted it and that does not seem to be the problem. Could the freon have leaked out?

No the freon is okay. There is a relay on the compressor that is called PTC relay. That is what the problem is. Unplug the unit and remove the relay from compressor terminals and replace. Should cost 25 bucks. Them little guys are expensive. Let me know how it goes. And don't forget to rate this advice. ken

LG refridgerator that is 12 years old. Clicking sound from back of the unit t my husband heard "chiming" while he was asleep. Freezer compartment is not freezing and fridge section is not cooling.


It sounds like the compressor start relay is not able to start the compressor, but it keeps trying. Test the start relay or replace it and hope the compressor itself has not failed.

Hi I have a whirlpool upright freezer ev190nxwn00. That will not cool


Yes I could be. My advice, if this freezer is 10-12 years old or more, you may be getting ready to spend a lot of money starting now. If not, have somebody physically look at it. Hopefully, it is just the relay or capacitor.

Not Cooling and has burning smell


If you are looking for help, one must explain the problem in detail, described properly, for one one the internet to review. For myself, a would require more details of your refrig, to properly explain a resolution. Otherwise a general answer is not worth much. If you have the fully electronic temperature controlled unit, then the components can be easily chedked in 5 minutes, by the on-board service diagnostic computer. One needs to know the general operating knowledge fo the refrig, which is naturally available, since you operated it for some years. Anyway, a layman can check it out by doing what is natural. Since the refrig defrosted, it has shut down. Four years is too short for genral compressor defects. Put the power plug in and check for operating sounds. Just a few seconds. You mentioned smell (outside or inside), ket a paper tube, like a paper towel center, and sniff the evaporator motor, then the condenser motor. I will recheck later, and see if you want to continue, this troubleshooting. Regards fmauka
