This could be a problem with the compressor.

When a compressor won't start and “clicks,” this indicates it (the compressor) is locked up and cannot start so it clicks off on an overload thermal (temperature) protector. If the compressor only runs for a short time then clicks off it is likely drawing too much amperage, overheating and cutting off on the overload protector. Nothing other than replacement can be done with a compressor that is locked up or drawing too much amperage as it is a problem with the internal components of the compressor.

It is absolutely crucial that the condenser coils are clean and the condenser fan motor, if there is one, operates properly or the compressor will overheat and go off on the overload protector. This handy condenser brush makes cleaning your refrigerator condenser coils a snap.

The compressor can be replaced but this is very expensive ($400- $500 parts & labor) due to the fact that the refrigerant needs to be reclaimed from the system and the compressor refrigerant lines unsoldered, new lines soldered on and new refrigerant charged into the system. This is something only a trained and licensed repair person can do. Compressors are part of the "sealed refrigerant system", many manufacturers warranty the components of this system for an extended period of time, usually 5 years from the purchase date.

I have a Whirlpool gold conquest side by side model GS5SHAXNL00 that has a clicking noise coming from the rear. The freezer isn't keeping things frozen but the fridge side is nice and cold. I can hear the...


These models have two fans. One is located inside the unit. The fan inside blows air across the cooling coils. With the door open this fan is usually running other than defrost cycle. If this fan has stopped it will cause the compressor to overheat and the relay will cycle.

The second fan equally as important is located under a fiberboard cover accessible from the back of the unit at the bottom. This fan is usually noticeable by an air flow sound. Usually air flow is detectable out of the front grill. If this fan fails to operate, blocked due to a major build up of lint the compressor will overheat and cycle as you hear,

Hope this helps?

Whirpool side by side refrigerator hot door gasket


Good day,
The first step is to clean the coils properly. Remove the back cover, and make sure the cooling fan is running. At this point, unplug the machine and with a wand and a push pull vaccuum blow the dirt out of the coils from back to front.

Yes , it's filthy and ugly, but the only proper way yo clean it.
Make sure the cover in the back is properly reinstalled. (See my tips). At the beginning, the divider will be fairly hot, but should slowly cool after enough running time to get the machine to it's normal temperature.

Maytacg dual cool refergeration


wherever you can access the condenser side closest to the fan is the best place because you want to blow compressed air through the coils from the side where the fan is located as that is the side where the air is sucked in through the coil assembly. you want to blow the dirt out in the opposite direction of the normal air flow through the coil fins.

Whirlpool stopped blowing cool air. Unplugged


It sounds as if your defrost timer has failed. Unplugging the unit over night allowed the unit to defrost. If unplugging it overnight or by using a stnd fan blowing into the freezer section for 90 minutes results in the fan blowing cold air then your unit is not defrosting. Most often the defrost timer is the problem. However there could be other defrost circuit like the thermostat or the defrost element. In order to provide you with the correct solution and defrost timer location you should privde your model number for further instructions.

Center of side by side very hot center between doors very hot whirlpool 25 cu. ft


If by the center bar, you mean the divider between the freezer and fridge sections, then the heat you're feeling is the built-in condensation heaters designed to keep moisture from forming on the exterior of the unit. These heaters also help to keep moisture from freezing on the inside of the door edges and in between the sides of the unit as well.

It's a normal function of modern, frost-free refridgerators, Some brands/models have an "energy saver" switch inside the fridge section that you can use to turn off the extra edge heaters, if you aren't experiencing excessive condensation forming on the outside of the unit.

Not all the heaters can be turned off even with fridges that have an energy saver switch, as the manufacturers engineer/determine where and how many edge heaters are needed to get the best performance out of their products.

With an energy saver switch, you turn it "ON" to actually turn off the surface heaters, and turn it "OFF" to have the heaters run constantly. Thus having it "ON" saves the energy that would be used to keep the heaters very warm. Some manufacturers have added electronic sensors to regulate these heaters, but not all makers have done this.

You should also clean the coils to help the fridge run better. As far as getting to the coils to clean them, if you have a long narrow crevice tool with your vaccum, you can try to use that to get underneath the unit to carefully get the dust out. I found that if you move the unit out where you can get to all sides, makes it easier to remove any dust on the back and underside of the fridge. Don't foget that you might have to remove the lower, back access panel to get at the compressor/coil assembly.

Just unplug the fridge first to keep from ruining your spouse's vaccum tool in the cooling fan blade, like I did once and never he-ad the end of it! (Not to mention the noise it makes - brought her running to see what I was doing!)

If that isn't possible, you can always use the blower end of a vaccum to blow out the coils, but it's a messy proposition at best. I've used a swiffer taped with some duct tape onto a long, thin dowel to get quite a bit of the dust the vac couldn't $uck out - I prefer that to blowing dust out as it's less messy.

Provided your fridge and freezer are cooling properly, you shouldn't have any issues with the warm center compartment divider causing you any problems.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Compressor cooling fan not running. Found problem based on diagnosis of strip between freezer and refrigerator being hot. How do I get the fan running?


You will have to replace the fan motor . Maybe you can turn the blade by hand to get it started . If not , try putting a small fan blowing on compressor towards front , so it will help keep the coils cool also , until you can get a new motor . If you had given model number , I could have given you the part number .

I have this same issue. The fan is not working properly. On the back bottom right of the unit is where the fan is located. Take off the card board panel and the fan is right there. Just by taping the fan with a screw driver the fan started running again (and the center cooled down quickly). It worked fine for a month, but has stopped again. I am going to replace the motor, hopefully that will solve the issue.
