Question about Refrigerators
We put extra ice cubes on the ice maker. Leter the ice melted and the refrigerator/freezer quit cooling. Now it has a bad odor. The make/model # is Whirlpool ED25RFXFW01.
Can you hear a fan behind the fridg working?
If not then the condesor cooling fan has quit working and is easy to replace. (this cools the coolant down before its enters back to the pump.
Can you hear a fan inside the fridg and freezer?
If not the the cooling coil fan has quit working and is easy to replace. (this blows on the coils and were the cold air comes from.
If all of the above is fine. Then the compressor is bad or it has leaked freon.
Being that there is a bad odor that is a sign of a burnt up fan motor or compressor.

Clean out the dust and lint from the coils under the ice box. make sure the fan motor blade is turning. Check the back wall of the freezer for frost.Remove the compressor relay and give it a shake. If it sounds like a salt shaker it is bad, if it makes no noise it is bad, You should hear and feel the floating start switch. let me know
