Question about Whirlpool GB2SHDXTS Stainless Steel
I tried posting this but apparently it didn't post. I posted the problem with my refrigerator that started this thread. I had a repairman out to fix the refrigerator. He replaced the defrost timer. About a month later the coils iced up again. I called the repairman back. He said he wasn't sure what the problem was, but he would do some research and get back to me. Two weeks later I hadn't heard from him and he wouldn't return my calls. I finally called another repairman and he came out today. He said the Control Board is bad. It has a relay sticking. He turned the refrigerator and freezer off, but the refrigerator still kept making noises. He said one of the noises was the damper valve opening and closing, but it shouldn't be because he had turned the refrigerator and freezer off. He listened little longer and asked me if I could hear the humming sound. He said that was the compressor, which shouldn't be making any sounds because everything was shut off. He said the Control Board costs about $220. Does any of this sound logical, or did I get another fly by night repairman?

that's about right, if the compressor is drawing more than 4 amperes, then it is no good.
A reminder also to check the condenser for dirt and debris that could have accumulated at the front, this is a major contributor to compressor failure. check also the fan near the compressor. it should be running at the same time the compressor runs.
that's nice to hear from whirlpool....
good luck tapperal,
tnx 4 using fixya,

Contact Whirlpool Customer Care about this. There has been a serious problem with the Embraco compressors they are using.

With the defrost timer being replaced already it sounds as if the repairman is not looking at the real problem. Unit works for 2 days then things start thawing. Hint Hint... it is not defrosting. There is a heating element inside the freezer section attached underneath the internal tubing that melts the ice every 6 to 8 hours via the defrost timer depending on the defrost timer installed. To prove that it is not defrosting..... just unplug the unit and place a stand fan blowing into the freezer for about 90 minutes. I would bet that once you plug it back in it wil work for 2 days and the problem once again repeats. With 2 calls on the same unit and you still have the same problem I would be calling the service people back and demand they fully troubleshoot the defrosting element and thermostat. Personally this is an unstatisfactory performance of an in home service by a repairman. With the exception of a new part if required, they should wave any labor and service call fees.

Testimonial: "Thanks! The repairman also replaced the thermostat, though. What should I ask him to do this time? Replacements were: timer, thermo, timer."
