Question about Whirlpool Gold White-on-White 21.9 cu. ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Ice and Water GD2SHAXLQ Side by Side Refrigerator
Fridge is not cooling. Lights work and fan could be heard. Took off the back and I can see a black "pot" like thing. I think thats the compressor. Attached to its side is a white componet with wires. I think that white componet is making a periodic click sound. I hear a click every few minutes - the power to the fan seems to slow ever so slightly - then another click a few seconds later and then it does it again a few minutes later. I don't think the compressor is making any noise. The Compressor is hot to the touch - I did unplug it and let it completely cool down but when I plugged it back in same problem. IF the compressor is bad, is it worth it to fix?
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 .
