Tom, I would start with the overload and relay that is on the compressor, If it is white it's a good possibility that it has failed. The fact that both sides are not cooling leaves me to believe the compressor is not operating. Take the overload and relay off. If they are both contained in a white cover shake it. If it rattles, I believe that is your problem. Let me know what you find...Catriver.

SOURCE: My whirlpool refrigerator (Model ET18DK) does not cool

Most likely one of two conditions are the root of the problem. Either the fan in the freezer is stalled or the defrost system has failed. The fan in the freezer should run any time the comressor is running; if it's not, there's your problem. If you can hear the fan, check for frost or snow developing across the back panel in the freezer. Local repair service could probably supply replacement parts quickly for defrost failures (most likely a bad terminator if defrost system isn't working).

You likely have a defrost system problem.....call a service company to look at it.

If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant.  See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot.  If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged.  Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

See if you have power going to relay, and then take relay off then make sure each pin on compressor is not going to ground if so replace relay.

My Whirlpool refrigerator quits working and restarts


Good day,
If it only occurs on a monthly cycle, even a service tech would not find it unless it happened while he was there.
First choice would be to replace both the thermostat and the defrost control. These are the items that turn the machine off and on and either one could hang or stick once in a while.

NOW, that is based on the fact that the machine goes totally dead during that period. If you hear something, anything running then the above does not apply.
The possibilities then, are, the fan motor in the freezer won't run (you can hear it running when you open the freezer door), the cooling fan motor behind the bottom rear cover that cools the compressor and condenser same situation, will not run.

Lastly, the start relay mounted on the side of the compressor is weak. It will not kick in the compressor, but in that situation, the fans will run.

Hope that helps. I've serviced a lot of refrigerators with that complaint, and it's always been the first 2 items.
