Question about Refrigerators
Whirlpool ED5GTNXMQ Side by Side Refrigerator problem: Compressor is warm but not hot to the touch. There is a clicking sound every minute or so and the freezer and fridge are not staying cold. This morning there was smoke and a burnt plastic smell coming from the back of the fridge. If it is a relay that went bad, how much would that cost to fix? Or could the compressor be bad? The fridge is 6yrs old. Thanks
Hello, This problem is going to be as you suspected the relay. This part is fairly cheap around $30 if you are going to do the fix yourself. The relay is mounted to the side of the compressor. I would change both the overload and relay because of the burning smell you had. If you have an appliance tech in to look at it I would say it's going to cost some where in the region of $150-$200. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!! Mike
