Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Oops, anyway decals are in Spanish (I live in Belize). Google info on this model were all in Spanish and I don't speak it well. Best I could figure out was this model is notorious for a problem with a capacitor and replacing it may fix the problem. Sure enough when I checked out the guts I found that someone had replaced the capacitor already. My question is will replacing this again solve the problem or what? Hoping someone on here might have seen this before. Every so many hours (usually when we're sleeping) the alarm sounds. Unplugging & replugging usually restarts it. I'm not sure the replacement cap is the correct one as it is unmarked. It is now wired detached from the control board and appears larger than the stock one. Finding parts here in the third world is a major hassle so I hope someone can advise me. Thanks in advance.

I'd start with testing the oven sensor that if that is bad it wont be horrible because you'll have no problem replacing it yourself less than $100. That is where I'd start let me know if it works. Good Luck.

Here we go folks, the problem is a failed capacitor on the circuit board.
It is called C10 which is printed on the circuit board, it is located on the left side of the silver heat sink and above the doughnut shaped coil, you should replace it with the same or one catagory higher in voltage.(1000 mircofarad 16 Volt)
You should have some soldering experience to replace and please pay attention to the polarity. (Pos and Neg.)

Remove the indide back cover in the freezer. If the cooling fins are iced up, give it a full defrost, Look for any holes to the outside near the pipes. Plug them. Chances are a mouse climbed up and chewed the styrofoam and you're sucking warm room air in and the moisture is freezing (icing) up the coils. Ice in the airflow channel can cause clicking against the fan.

the defrost should be controlled by a timer every 10 hrs or so,it is usually in the bottom of the fridge by the compressor,it has a small motor that turns the timer,they burn out
