No it probably doesnt need freon. the noise your hearing is the compressor trying to start  due to either a bad start relay or a stuck compressor. on whirlpool refrigs the most common problem is bad relays this is a very easy part to replace and the part is in expensive. less than 70 dollars. the part number is 8201786 and the kit has very good instructions for doing it your self. if you have any questions please ask thanks Peyton

Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. side by side Refrigerator with in door ice


The process of Refrigeration is for one section to be hot while cooling another section. I.e freezing in one section result in the heat build up and dissipattion else where. Any compressor working properly is going to be quite warm to the point of being hot to the touch when working NORMALLY. There is nothing that you need to do for the continued safe operation of your compressor. If your freezer has ice build up again in the near future your uint is not defrosting properly. If it functions normally after 2 or 3 days of use then you more than likely had a one time buildup of ice usually caused by someone leaving the door partially open

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

Freezer quit freezing


HI,

you can try this suggestion first.

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

thanks,

Will not cool - ice maker will not work


Hi there, if the compressor is making a lot of noise, its broken. If the compressor is running smooth with no pings, it just needs a recharge. here's another tip. check the control panel for lose connections.
