Shut off the fridge for few hours and check the starter in the compressor which is having a fault. If your compressor is not running well then you will have to see if the starter is heating. If so replace the starter so that the compressor gets better current. You will need help to check the pressure of the gas and the pumping pressure of the compressor. The starter will click and start immediately to run the compressor. If the fridge does not cool the fault will be with the gas pressure or compressor. If not check your defrosting circuit, the timer and the thermostat. SO check this out. Good day

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

Refrigerator/freezer not working

remove the bottom panel on back of fridge. locate the compressor( round black object with copper tubing coming out of it. check where the wiring plugs into it and you will probably see a white plastic box attached to the compressor.this part can be pried off with a screwdriver and if it is white this is your problem. whirlpool had a defect in this relay and they go out quite frequently

Refrigerator/Freezer not cooling

check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, by compressor Make sure compressor is running and not shutting off on overload.. u said comp. hot.. should be warm... Not hot check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.

GE refrigerator not cooling

on most refrigeration, the refrigerant goes to the freezer first and the tail end to the fridge. it is probable that the compressor is failing. compressors are quite hotg when running but not too hot to touch. if the compressor is too hot that also indicates failure. doubt it is worth repair
