Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Your Adaptive Defrost Control may be the cause. The part number is=> 4388931 Defrost Control Board
Sometimes the adaptive defrost control board will allow the fans to continue to run as the compressor sits silent. I want someone to also fill the top of the compressor for warmth or heat to the point you cannot keep your hand on top. If the problem is the compressor is too hot to keep hand there and the refrigerator is not cooling you will most likely need to change out the compressor start components. I see you all ready tried the compressor start components. Then you have only the
4388931 Defrost Control Board to replace and it can be found inside the fresh food section behind the controls just above the top shelf, Let me know if compressor was getting hot. I will be here to answer any questions you may have, Thanks Sea Breeze

you need to do an amp draw with your meter,clamp the run wire on the compressor,you should get 2-5 amp reading,any higher means the compressor is going bad,also should be a locked rotor amp(LRA) reading on comp.-mike
