Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Only the light will come on. I read in another forum to jumper the cold control thermostat. Tried that still no go. This unit sat for a few years not being used, when I plugged it in it ran for about 3-5 seconds and then quit.

That dude is probably stuck in the defrost mode.
OK try this:
1. Unplug refrigerator
2. Turn Cold Control to “off (Compressor is off)
3. Plug in refrigerator
The defrost cycle has now been initiated. The DTT has a bypass/test point for diagnosis. To terminate defrost manually:
1. Unplug the refrigerator
2. Turn the cold control “on” (Compressor is on)
3. Plug in the refrigerator
The defrost cycle is terminated and refrigeration cycle resumes.
Replace the dang adaptive defrost if you cannot get any response.
