Okay, normally the refrig tech would tell you where abouts the hole is. Well I would of at least told you where abouts it was. Normally on a domestic fridge when there is a hole that you can repair, does end up costing abit of money.

In all honesty it is a risk. If you got a quote of say 200-300 dollars and a new fridge is 1000-1500. Then you have a high chance of the fridge going bad after the repair and costing you another 200 dollars. But you still are 500 up. But you dont have a new fridge.

Sorry if that dosent make sense but what I am trying to say is that it is a risk of loosing money and still havnt not having a new fridge

Why do the freezer coils on my Whirlpool stainless steel model GB2SHDXTSOO ice up?


I posted the problem with my refrigerator that started this thread. I had a repairman out to fix the refrigerator. He replaced the defrost thermostat. About a month later the coils iced up again. I called the repairman back. He said he wasn't sure what the problem was, but he would do some research and get back to me. Two weeks later I hadn't heard from him and he wouldn't return my calls. I finally called another repairman and he came out today. He said the Captain Board is bad. It has a relay sticking. He turned the refrigerator and freezer off, but the refrigerator still kept making noises. He said one of the noises was the damper valve opening and closing, but it shouldn't be because he had turned the refrigerator and freezer off. He listened little longer and asked me if I could hear the humming sound. He said that was the compressor, which shouldn't be making any sounds because everything was shut off. He said the Captain Board costs about $220. Does any of this sound logical

Freezer not cold. fan is on. Also, there seems to be a "click" in the rear of the refridgerator.


Check relay and compressor. Remove relauy and shake by hand gently and refix it. Check after click sound compressor starts. Keep your hand over discharge line (Condenser line).If warm, compressor is working. Open fridge door and check, when click sound comes buld gets dim and bright. It means compressor gets strain to start. Call repairman to replace compressor.Thanks.

Compressor humms for about a minute then clicks off. neither the fridge or freezer are cold. What should I do?


compressor is faulty. It controls both the fridge and freezer. you have a minute chance that if you switch the fridge off for 30 min. and retry it would have cooled down enough to restart.

Refrigerator/freezer won't stay cold.


With the defrost timer being replaced already it sounds as if the repairman is not looking at the real problem. Unit works for 2 days then things start thawing. Hint Hint... it is not defrosting. There is a heating element inside the freezer section attached underneath the internal tubing that melts the ice every 6 to 8 hours via the defrost timer depending on the defrost timer installed. To prove that it is not defrosting..... just unplug the unit and place a stand fan blowing into the freezer for about 90 minutes. I would bet that once you plug it back in it wil work for 2 days and the problem once again repeats. With 2 calls on the same unit and you still have the same problem I would be calling the service people back and demand they fully troubleshoot the defrosting element and thermostat. Personally this is an unstatisfactory performance of an in home service by a repairman. With the exception of a new part if required, they should wave any labor and service call fees.

LG bottom freezer


Sounds like the refrigerator is sitting lopsided.  Make sure that the front legs are both retracted in the up position.  If it doesn't work, then lower the front leg on the hinge side of the refrigerator.  That will cause the frame to lift the door and it should be able to close properly.

Your condenser coil is frozen up with condensate...need to fix the defrost system, most likely it is the control sub module.
