Question about Whirlpool Gold Black-on-Black 25.4 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator w / Accu-Chill Temperature Control System GD5SHGXLB
Had a power surge yesterday(I assume since digital clocks were reset). Fridge and freezer don't cool at all. Lights and fan work fine. I am reading other posts regarding a frequent clicking of the compressor if the relay is bad. I don't have the clicking. Is it my relay or could it be the compressor?

SOURCE: not cooling
The clicking you are hearing is your overload on your start system sounds like your compresser start ststem is out..or your compresser is locked up the only way to tell is to ohm out the compresser idf you dont have a meter you can install a start kit like a Supco Pro41 or a RCO410 or a factory replacement and see if it starts up the compresser.. Have you cleaned the condenser at all ??? although this will not fix the compresser it can be a cause of overheating..The part Number you need is a 2188831 for the factory replacemenet ($22.56)the supco parts part number SU RCO410 ($15.00) the Pro41 is part #
SU PRO41 ($17.97) you can get them at your local parts house they are all easy to change or if you dont have a parts house close you can oder it on the web at www.apdepot.com Hope this fixes ya

sound like the start components are weak on the unit. you can get new start components or get a three n one control that repalces the starting components and all that you have to do is wire it up just like the diagram on the bag. or the lem could be low voltage gpoing to the refriger ator. The manufactures reccommend that you never run a refrigerator on a extenstion cord of any kind. It is also a good Idea to take the refrigerator electrical outlet off of any type of GFI receptical of any kind. you don't want to come home to a defrosted mess just because the outlet decided at that Tibme to trip.

your problem on this is the main control in the compressor compartment. unplug your refrig then remove this control unplug all connectors and reconnect. this will probably get you working temporarily In almost every case I've seen we ended up replacing the control board. thx peyton

SOURCE: Fridge working but not cooling.
The white component you see , is the problem . That is the overload/relay . These short due to power surges , dirty coils in the front bottom of refrig , or just by age . They short , to save the compressor , when one of these happens . The part number you need is # 8201786 . This part just prys off (maybe one wire clip ) , easily replaceable with instructions included with the part .
