Question about Whirlpool ED2FHSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a ed5fhgxkq00 side by side Whirlpool refridgerator that stopped cooling. It worked fine up until last night when we noticed that the ice was melting. Now it gets a little cool but not cool enough. It was very dusty underneath it so we took and vaccumed it all out the compressor is running but it just doesn't get cold enough in either the freezer or the refridgerator section.

If the compressor has a fan next to it, be sure it is running. if the relay is clicking every few minutes it may need to be replced. contact local parts distributor.

How old is the fridge? Mine lieterally caught on fire at the start device last weekend. My fridge was manufactured in July 2001. Be careful, The fridge I have is model# ED5FHGXKQ00. I am currently requesting a recall be made by Whirlpool on this appliance.
Other than that it could just be that the ice maker line has frozen or the "arm" in the ice chest is stuck and can't raise itself to pump water directly into the ice trays. Either way be very careful. I hope this was helpful.

I did some research online, and read that the Start Relay is most commonly the problem. My husband bought the part, (about $50) and reattached it to the side of the compressor....and was cold immediately! apparently a very common problem on these fridges.

Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator

 it really needs to be checked in person, the last thing you need is an unreliable refrigerator.

it could be:
  •  defrost timer sticking in defrost too long
  • defrost timer not defrosting properly
  • icemaker heater staying on too long
  • among other things
let me know if you have any more details

Our fridge does not make ice - Whirlpool Gold side-by-side GS5SHAXNT00

Same as others. Whirlpool Gold side-by-side. Water was running yesterday but minimal ice. Now that's gone and I don't even hear the water. Turned on/off the infrared sensor. Still get drinking water, just no ice in the bin. There's a couple cubes in the maker itself when I open the door (which I've closed completely). Help?
