Sounds like the compressor relay may be out. I have replaced a few of these compressers but it is almost always the relay. Don't let anyone put a 3 in 1 relay kit on it. That will burnout the compressor for sure.

SOURCE: can't clean coils under fridge

Carefully. It can be done.

Get an old kitchen towel and a yard stick. Pull the towel over the end of the yardstick, and carefully slide the end of the towel between the coils, using the yardstick. Carefully sweep side to side, while at the same time, having the vacuum cleaner nozzle in the vicinity to capture loose fugitive dust. Carefully pull the towel out, and vacuum the dust off the rag.

Do this from front and back, being careful to not damage the tubing. The little wires are OK to bend some, just don't put to much force on the refrigerant tubing. Take your time, and you'll get the coil clean.

I have a Whirlpool fridge that needs a new water filter. Twice now, when I remove the filter to change it, water gushes out even though the ice maker is OFF. I quickly turn off the water line and mop

The Whirlpool fridge requires a water supply connection to a cold water line. Before you connect the water supply to the water line on the fridge, make certain the unit is unplugged from the wall. Press the button and drop down the cover. Then twist to release the old filter and twist the new one into the filter head. Run about 2 gallons of water through dispenser to remove any air from the lines. Liquid EPDM Rubber Roof Coatings for Roof Leaks Repair EPDMCoatings
