W-hoots, I ended up replacing the start relay and it worked great after that. I tried to insert a picture of it, but it would not post for some reason. It is located on the side of the compressor and has three wires going to it. It is made up of a switch and a relay that is attached to the switch. I replaced them both and it started right up. If I recall, it cost me about $70. Hope this helps you out.

Hello , its sunday ! & our problem is that our fridge motor does not seem to be cutting in...but the light still comes on .any idears please?


If the compressor is not running and does not start when you turn the temperature down, it is time for a new fridge. The cost of replacing the compressor and labor is more than a new fridge in most cases.

There is no cooloing effect


the coolling in a refrigerator occurs when the compressor forces freon thru the system and the expansion of gas in the coils of the freezer takes heat away thus cooling the fridge. if no cooling is happening then the compressor is not running, the freon is to low on the charge, or the small "cap" line from the compressor to the cooling coils is blocked. Unfortunately the compressor is the most expensive part of the refrigerator and if it has stopped this can be a expensive problem. there is a few other things that can make the compressor stop. there is an overheat protection device on the side of the compressor that once in a while opens up thus no electrical power to the compressor and no cooling. the other part that can fail is the cold control thermastat. if this opens up the fridge can't start the compressor because the open condition of the cold control never "calls for cold". the other simple thing that can stop the cooling is a totally frosted up coil condition. the air can't circulate around the coils so no cold gets to the inside of the fridge. simple test step one unplug the fridge for 10 minutes then plug back in. Do you hear the motor in the bottom run? If it runs wait ten more minutes and put your hand into the freezer compartment. Do the sides feel cold? if the motor (compressor) in the bottom runs but freezer doesn't get cold then the system is defective and there will be no easy fix. If the freezer does show cold then the problem could be with the "evaporator" fan that circulates cold. this is an inexpensive part and can be replaced at a reasonable cost.

There is a click sound and fridge fail to start


Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.


If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…


Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

I noticed a "clicking" sound every couple minutes when I awoke this morning. 4 hours later everything in the freezer is thawed and the refrigerator is up to 50 degrees. Any ideas on what to do?


It sounds like the clicking sound is the compressor trying to start. The clicking is the starter relay kicking in. The relay is under the plastic cap on the compressor under the fridge. The compressor is rounded on top flat on the bottom with the plastic cap on top of it and its black. If you take the cap off the starter relay is connected to one of the 3 prongs on the compressor replace it if this doesnt fix the problem your compressor is locked up and sorry but this means time for a new fridge. good luck I hate to give bad news..

Both fridge and freezer keep rising in temp, seems to be running constantly. Only about 3 years old. Replaced the board in it, seemed to run quietly for one day keeping proper temps, now back to running...


when you install a new board you have to check i think it's the 9 pin connector,the instructions will tell you what one it is,if there's a wire in the second pin you need to cut the wire or the machine won't run correctly.

Im having a problem with the fridge not cooling. the ice box works just fine and i have the controls on max but its not cooling down


See if the compressor is running. its under the fridge and will be humming. If its running you fridge and the fan under the fridge is running also then your fridge is low on freon. If the fan is now running replace it. If the compressor is not running it could be the starter which is inside the plastic cap on the compressor. It is a nickel size part connected to one of the 3 prongs on the compressor. It also could be the timer. The timer is a device that turns to fridge defrost. It is located behind the plastic in the top,back of the ref side of the fridge or behind the back in the freezer or under the front bottom underneath the fridge. it will have a slot near its center that a flat blade screwdriver can fit in turn it slowly and you will hear audible clicks the compressor should kick on if not its not the timer. good luck

Hello,
These problems are saying relay/capacitor replacement and if that don't work then compressor replacement.
First change the relay and the compresssor cap. See if you have improvement...if not then you will need to have the compressor replaced.

Here is a tip about the relay and cap....

The compressor on my Whirlpool wbm46 fridge is cutting out on overload. The compressor is running very hot and trips on thermal overload and then restarts once cooled down. The fridge is only 3.5 years old...


Hello there:
first you might want to have the compressor recharged with refrigerant these hermatic units will over time loose some of the refrigerant and will need to be recharged and this would be a lot cheeper to do than replacing the compressor if your warranty is still good i would use it ok?
best regards michael

Ye, try to first replace the Relay, if that does not help then go to the run capacitor. Those are going to be your only 2 problems that you will have as long as the compressor is still doing its job by atleast running
