Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
My Whirlpool refrigerator model ED5GTN stop cooling for both side. I unpluged and pluged it back in but i did not hear the compressor kick in. lighting is on fan is on but do not feel any cool air.
With the unit unplugged, take off the back cardboard panel. On the lt rear side you will find the compressor. On the lt side of the compressor you will see a white box mounted on the side, this is the relay, and it most likely will have a zip tie holding it on. Cut the zip tie or unhook the clip. Gently pry the relay from the side of the compressor. If it is badly burnt make sure there are 3 connectors on the compressor, sometimes they will burn one off or burn it so bad the compressor will need to be replaced $$$$ if not in warranty. If its not burnt thats hopefully what you will find, hold out your hand with the compressor side of the relay pointing down. Shake the relay like a salt shaker into your hand. If you get grey flakes/chunks in your hand the relay is bad and will need to be replaced. easy fix for about $45 - $50.

Go into the lower rear compartment and check if the compressors hot. if so unplug , get a soaking wet hand towel and place it on top of the compressor for an hour.
then try plugging back in.
check condensing coil by compressor and clean if needed.
