Re: whirlpool conquest model side-by-side

You need to replace the compressor start relay/overload. It's on the left side of the compressor. You should be able to remove it from the compressor by hand but you may have to use a flat head screwdriver to pop it loose. When you get it off you can shake it and if it rattles inside it's definitely bad. I bought one for my fridge online for $48. Hope this helps.

We have a whirlpool GS6SHA conquest side by side and the middle bar between the frig and freezer is hot to the touch. what is wrong?

Either the fan which cools the compressor ( behind the bottom panel behind the refrig ) has stopped ( possibly something caught in the blade or bad fan motor ) , or the coils in front at the bottom behind the kick plate , need cleaning badly .

Whirlpool freezer not freezing

The fan speed can be deceptive. That is why this problem is so hard to diagnose, when the fan starts to wear out the motor spins but not with enough force to circulate air thru the freezer and rrefrigerator. If you have the ability to swap out the fan motor then it should only cost you the price of the motor and components. Approx. $125.00 if you have the make and model you can go to or to obtain motor and components, But if you have to get serviceman to replace fan it will cost you an hours labor also.

Whirlpool conquest 2001 GS6SHAXKQ01 refrigerator side by side top part is not cooling

the first one sounds like it is slowly leaking freon.
  •  the second Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

Whirlpool Gold Conquest side by side (stainless steel front)bought in 2004. Freezer stopped freezing, fridge cooling fine, freezer is running. Thank You!

sounds as if you have an ice buildup restricting the fan from moving airflow to the freezer. Inside the freezer take apart the lower shelf and see if this area is full of ice, if so clean it and defrost it.

Don't let them tell you that the problem is related to "sulfur" in your water. It's a scam so that they don't have to repair the problem. The actual problem is that they don't use quality parts to build these units anylonger.
