There is no reset button and you will need to replace the start relay. Here is the part to order. Below is a video to show you how to replace the relay. The model shown may be different but the process is the same.

SOURCE: freezer works but the refrigerator side is not

Good day,
Two possible problems.
1. The fan motor located behind the freezer back panel is not running.
If you open the door, while the machine is running, you should hear it.
If not, remove the rear panel. If the motor is not being blocked,
replace. It's a little awkward, since it is clipped in place, but with a little patience, can be done.

2. The defrost system has failed. If when inspecting the rear panel, you see frost building up on it, that is your problem.
There are three parts to the defrost system
One. The main heater, which is located behind the rear freezer panel, and runs underneath the evaporator coil, and part way up the sides.
Two. The defrost thermostat, which is located on the top of the evaporator, and is a small round disk clipped to the evaporator coil, and has two wires leading from it to a plug.
Three. The timer, which is located in the fresh food compartment, under the roof near the front of the compartment.

To repair, unplug the machine, remove the rear panel in the freezer. Unplug the wires to the heater and check the heater for continuity. It should read very low resistance. Below 35 ohms. If it reads infinity, replace.

If the heater checks O.K. on this model, I recommend replacing both the limit thermostat and the timer, since both have a high failure rate, and the cost is within reason.
Parts may be purchased at any appliance parts house that carries Whirlpool parts.

Below is an excellent pictorial view of defrost system components. Unfortunately, the hyperlink to it may not work, and you will have to copy and paste it into your browsers address bar.

My Whirlpool Refrigerator ED5PVEXWS Not Getting Cold. We got up this morning and everything in the freezer melted. We bought it in November. it still gets power the lights are on inside. still under...


First thing I would consider is the=> W10135899 Defrost Control Board The first thing that stops is the compressor and fans most times when they go bad. You can find this board here=> ED5PVEXWS00 Control Panel Your control panel is found above the top shelf inside the fresh food compartment. Just unplug the power to refrigerator and lower the panel and where part 6 is in the photo is where the board is located. Most times when these boards burn out it creates this problem you described. Replacing that board should get you going and back to cooling normally. I will be here if you have other questions, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool model gb22dkxgw00 bottom freezer working ok but refrigerator is warm i think the fan is not working but how do you get to it?


you may not be able to get the fan to go . if it is burned out . make sure the fan will turn easy and you can try a jumper cord to run it and if it runs look for thermo that has not reset when cold . ( called the defrost terminator .) poor connections would also caus this .. mm hope some of this will help .
