It is the compressor that has failed. The hum is it trying to start and the following click is the overload protector opening. What is the temperature where the refrigerator is located? Allow the compressor to cool down before trying to restart it. If it still does not restart after it has cooled off it is done.

You have a sealed system problem. There is either a small leak or a restriction somewhere in the tubing. This isn't something you could've caused so don't worry about that. Unfortunately this isn't something you can fix yourself either. You require a certified refrigeration technician to fix this problem.

The compressor should be OK this time because you caught it in time. But if the condenser fan stops you need to consider replacing the fan. I have had refrigerators do fine until the fan motor warms up and you are away, it stops. Don't think you should use the refrigerator until the fan is fixed. Sea Breeze

The fan speed can be deceptive. That is why this problem is so hard to diagnose, when the fan starts to wear out the motor spins but not with enough force to circulate air thru the freezer and rrefrigerator. If you have the ability to swap out the fan motor then it should only cost you the price of the motor and components. Approx. $125.00 if you have the make and model you can go to appliancefactoryparts.com or appliancefactorypro.com to obtain motor and components, But if you have to get serviceman to replace fan it will cost you an hours labor also.

That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

Whirlpool side by side not cooling or freezing. Have already cleaned the condensor coils with no change. I did notice that the fan in the bottom back is not spinning.


that is most likely the problem. If this fan doesnt cool the condenser and compressor it will shut the compressor down. replace the fan and your problem will most likely be fixed.

Hot strip between doors


First , remove the bottom kick plate , and vacuum the coils . They have to be clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Then pull the refrig out , and remove the lower panel , to expose the compressor and cooling fan . This fan HAS to be working , to cool the compressor AND the coils . If not running ( fan ) , check for an obstruction of paper , insulation , etc , and remove the cause . If not being obstructed , and not running , replace the fan motor . Afterwards , be sure to reinstall the back panel , as this panel , helps pull the airflow across the coils , and compressor . The strip between the doors , has part of the coils behind it , and will get hot , if the coils in front are dirty , or , the fan behind the refrig is not working .

My refrigerator and frezzer are not cooling. i cleaned the coils. the condensor pot is vary hot is this normale? i unpluged it for about a half hour while i cleaned all the dust out. and pluged it back in...


If the condensor coils and compressor motor seem too hot, make sure that the compressor fan is turning. This is what removes heat from the coils by pulling room air across the coils.

The fan is usually at the back of the refrigerator down low. If it's not turning, you will need to replace the fan motor.

Our 10 year fridg seems to get very hot on the side...wondering what would cause this Model et18pkxaw00


The condensor coils run along the inner sides of the fridge . The heat you feel , is the heat being pulled out of the freezer which is the purpose of "freon" (to attract heat) . A freezer doesn't get cold , "freon" pulls the heat out , which is then cooled by the condensor fan ( fan which cools the compressor and coils ) . The more heat you feel , the colder the fridge should get ( to an extent ) . Also make sure the compressor fan is working .

Hot center strip


when the center mullion is hot then it means your units condensor fan motor is out. the fan is located by the compressor. this fan keeps the condensor coils cooled off. if the fan is not running then the unit vents through the cabinet.
