Whirlpool refrigerator ET18GKXHW0 NW power cord ripped out

Whirlpool refrigerator ET18GKXHW0 0, while moving the power cord was stepped on and ripped out. I rewired it the way its appears it was wired before, but it no longer works. The lights come on on the inside, and the fan blows room temp air in to the freezer. the fan dosen't blow air in to the fridge, and the fan at the bottom back isn't working either. does any one have a wiring diagram? all help welcomed.

The refrigerator should have a wiring diagram. Look in the grill on the bottom of the front of the refrig. Pull that grill off and a lot of times they are in there. Sometimes thay are taped to tha back also. You can buy a wiring diagram just like any other part from Whirlpool or sears parts center.

Where is the reset button on a ED25SM Whirlpool refrigerator

refrigerators do not have a dedicated reset button, but you can, however, reset your refrigerator in the event of a technical problem.
resetting the main unit
  • 1 Turn the refrigerator's temperature control switch to "Off."
  • 2 Unplug the power cord.
  • 3 Plug the power cord back into the wall.
  • 4 Turn the control knob to adjust it to the temperature you want. leave cord unplugged for about 30 seconds. hope this helps ! good-day !

Whirlpool Refrigerator model ET18GKXHW0 0 I seem to have a problem with my defrost cycle. The fridge has warmed up over the last few days and there is frost buildup on the back of the freezer...

The defrost cycle is relative to the cooling coils and not the interior temprature. Frost showing up means air is leaking into the fridge... To resolve, you need to observe the cooling coils are free from buildup. it it the coils, usually under panels, that should be attracting the moisture, and the defrost cycle clears that buildup, and not any buildup in the main (user accessable) areas of the fridge....

Defrost timers are not too expensive, consider blindly changing that...but totally defrost the unit around the coils or you will never get past the issue.

Turns off won't turn back on unless you move thermostat

Sounds like a defective cold control ( off/on thermostat).
They will tend to stick in the off position. Your moving the knod unsticks it.

We were moving the fridge and the power cable was ripped off.

If any of the old cord still remains it is not a hard job to spice in a new cord.

My whirlpool refrigerator trips the main power

Pankaj, Do you have a ohm meter? Sounds like you have something shorting back. First take the meter to the cord. On the end of the cord, you should show no continuity from each male prong to the ground prong on the cord itself. If you show continuity, you have something shorting back. Then I would start with the compressor, Unplug the wires going to the overload and relay, make sure the units unpluged and meter the cord again. If it's ok, then the problem is in the overload and relay. Start there and let me know, if it still showing a short, then we will have to go to the controls, heater, and repeat the process until you find the culprit. Catriver.
