Question about Whirlpool GS6SHEXNL Side by Side Refrigerator
Model MDZ2766GE SxS compressor is running, condenser is cooling, no fans, internal or external, are running. The compressor is hot because the fans don't run. ADC has been replaced twice, but it doesn't seem to me that the compressor would run if it was stuck on defrost cycle. Compressor relay was replaced 6 mos ago on recall, could that be the problem? I'm handy, can use a voltmeter, but the service guide was taken a while ago, so I don't know where to start. This unit has been nothing but trouble, I will never buy anything Maytag again. If I wasn't an unemployed victim of the economy, I would gladly push it off a cliff and never look back. Thanks for any help.

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

the fact the bowl was filled with water and that you said the inside of the freezer was coated with ice, indicates a failure of the defrost system.
now the ice has gone, reset the temps and wait to see what happens

You have a bad overload/relay . This is the piece pluged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . The part number is 8201786 . It is easily replaceable and instructions come with it . Price is around $60.00 .

Hi. Due to the fact that the fans are not operational, this will confirm that the Main PCB has failed. This is the main power control board. It must be replaced, asap. The general location of this affected board will be just behind an access panel, near the compressor unit, or on the backside, mounted in the middle section of the unit.
Once the Main PCB board is replaced, the unit will return to its normal operating status.

You can purchase a kit which is part number URCO410 which is a new relay, overload, and capacitor. If its a newer whirlpool you will want to hook the wires into your old capacitor. It comes with instructions its very easy to install. The reason you want to use your OEM capacitor is because it will draw a lower amperage and give your compressor a longer life as opposed to using the capacitor that comes with the kit. Hope this helps _MJ_
