SOURCE: Whirlpool refrigerator model ED5GTN cooling problem.

With the unit unplugged, take off the back cardboard panel. On the lt rear side you will find the compressor. On the lt side of the compressor you will see a white box mounted on the side, this is the relay, and it most likely will have a zip tie holding it on. Cut the zip tie or unhook the clip. Gently pry the relay from the side of the compressor. If it is badly burnt make sure there are 3 connectors on the compressor, sometimes they will burn one off or burn it so bad the compressor will need to be replaced $$$$ if not in warranty. If its not burnt thats hopefully what you will find, hold out your hand with the compressor side of the relay pointing down. Shake the relay like a salt shaker into your hand. If you get grey flakes/chunks in your hand the relay is bad and will need to be replaced. easy fix for about $45 - $50.

Most likely one of two conditions are the root of the problem. Either the fan in the freezer is stalled or the defrost system has failed. The fan in the freezer should run any time the comressor is running; if it's not, there's your problem. If you can hear the fan, check for frost or snow developing across the back panel in the freezer. Local repair service could probably supply replacement parts quickly for defrost failures (most likely a bad terminator if defrost system isn't working).

You have a bad overload/relay . This is the piece pluged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . The part number is 8201786 . It is easily replaceable and instructions come with it . Price is around $60.00 .

SOURCE: freezer not freezing but cools

is the freezer fan running? is there frost on the rear freezer wall if so it would be a defrost issue. if no frost on freezer rear panel it would sound like a bad compressor or sealedsystem leak.

Switch off the fridge for few hours then before you you switch on check the continuity of the main power cord to the compressor which comes thrrough the main relay. Now the relay is activated by the thermostat/pressure switch/defrost timer.
So you will be able to trace the path of the power to activate the compressor. however if the relay clicks and shuts off the the capacitor must be checked or replaced. However if there is a heavy drain of current- use a clamp tester meter- the compresssor can be a suspect.
Please check this link for a idea of the parts.

Your problem seems to be in the control circuitry but I don't think it is a true fault. I would suspect corrosion on the connectors of the upper and lower control boards instead of a faulty control board.

I use a combination of scouring pad and #2 pencil eraser to clean the contacts.

My kenmore side-by-side refrigerator is less than 4-years old. freezer works but refrigerator stde does not get cold. ice accumulates on lower vent in refrigerator.


all it does is the evap fan blows cold air from the freezer into the fridge section and returns through the bottom air vent,so if there's ice there most likely one of the doors was left open,check the freezer for frozen water droplets on packages or on the walls and shelves of the machine,if you don't see that open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing you could have a bad evap fan motor.if the fan is blowing in the freezer from the bottom remove the second draw or bin and put your hand on the back inside wall of the freezer,if there's frost or like snow on the back wall you have a defrost problem,bad defrost thermostat,defrost heater,timer or board depending on what model you have,if the fan is blowing and you don't see any problems that i talked about you could have a bad damper,on some machines there's a damper door that opens and closes to let cold air into the fridge section,if it's bad it won't open and no cold air can blow in from the freezer,if you think the door was left open,remove anything that's in the way,in the freezer side and the fridge side,shut the machine down or unplug it and with a hair dryer melt out the ice,don't keep the heat in one place for to long,you can melt the vent if it's plastic or styrofoam,after you think it's melted out start the machine and put your hand up in the left hand corner in the fridge section and see if you can feel any cold air blowing in,there could be ice up there too,next time send the model number so i can look up your model,on a side by side you'll find the tag on the right hand side wall in the fridge up near the ceiling or on the ceiling near the light.hope this helps,if you have another fridge you could move the food and just shut the fridge down with the doors open and let it melt out on it's own overnight.good luck
