SOURCE: leaking compressor

jccam, just wondering if the service tech tapped into the system. This way he could tell whether or not you were low on charge or had a restriction in the system. You can replace the compresser on this model. It has to be done by a epa certified technician. Part number for the compressor kit is 2212192. You can see if it would be cost effecient at this link Catriver post back.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Side By Side GD5RHAXNQ00-Electrical Issue

The arcing noise is just that, a loose connection causing electricity to arc from one place to another. this is initiated by opening the door and closing the light switch. The small glow is from a small amount of voltage reaching the bulb. If you are inclined, repair it. remove the cover, look for the burnt wire or connection. If its a removable part, replace it. If not clean it up and/or make a new connection. One thing is for sure, it will not get any better and may get worse and burn up something more critical.

SOURCE: compressor runs constantly, fridge cools, but not as cold as new

If unit is running constantly, and not nearly as cold as it used to be, most likely a freon leak. Possibly a partially frozen over evap too. If evap is mostly clear except for about 5% of it, most probably a freon leak. Changing controls will probably not fix anything. Need to look into this a little deeper.

Good Luck and hope this gets it done for you.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Fridge/Freezer Door Seal Replacement. Model: ART 462/3

In short no as long as you get the correct seal type from a spares shop, or Whirlpool. Just make sure that it is straight and there are NO gaps or splits in it when you refit it. Usually these will come pre cut to size for the particular model of FF but you can also buy seal strip on a reel from many spares shops. Also when you have removed the old seal make sure that you use a degreasing cleaner to clean around where the old seal was located and make sure the area is dry before fitting the new one.

GE TBX25ZLB Refrigerator Compressor won't Engage

Part number for compressor relay is WR7X222. However, you have a very old rotary compressor there and most likely it went bad. I would just buy a new fridge. Don't waste your time/money. The fridge is too old.

Is Refrig Compressor Bad or need another 3n1 Relay?

Good day,
Great pictures, but.......
Your start winding is burned out. Forget buying relays, the compressor is shot.
Did the 3 in 1 cause the problem. Maybe, but no way to test.

The disadvantage of a 3 in 1 is it's overload protector.
One it's designed for 1/4 to 1/3 horsepower motors.
Two, it does not sense the body temperature of the compressor. Bad.
Based on the locked rotor amps of your compressor, it looks like about a 1/5 HP motor. Far to light a compressor to use an overload as in the 3 in 1.

Don't feel bad. From your description of the first event, the compressor was probably going south anyway.

Thank you for using Fixya

Shut down once, some clicking noises. Now is runing fine.

Probably a bad compressor start relay.
Replace the relay before you condemn the fridge.

Clicking noise coming from whirlpool refrigerator

The clicking sound is a relay called PTC relay. You need to replace it. First be sure to unplug frig. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the frig units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

Bar fridge

There is a PTC relay on the compressor you need to replace it. Small black square looking device take the wire retainer clip off and pry off the relay. Get the wires going to relay noted and then get the model number and make of your unit. Go to a parts house for appliances and get a new one. About 25 bucks for that little dude but it is a needed for your compressor. Could get a 3 in 1 relay they are a lot cheaper and easy to install. let me know how it goes ken

Fridge not cooling

Most of the time on a whirlpool the problem is the relay on the compressor sometimes called the start device. I would replace that first. If you need help finding the part let me know. I will need the complete model # from the sticker inside the fridge section. You can look it up with diagrams at
