Question about Whirlpool GS6SHEXNL Side by Side Refrigerator
The frame around the freezer section is hot to the touch. The inside is cold. When you open the doors the center section that the seal goes agaist is very warm/hot. Could the defrost cycle be stuck on?
I unplugged for 5 minutes and the compressor started up and the blowers are on.
Any help? Is there a reset for this?
Hi. You either have a dust blocked condenser coil or your condenser fan motor has stopped. It is located next to the compressor. If the motor has failed, put a fan in the back of your refrigerator and let it blow into the back of the refrigerator until you get a fan motor. Make sure you leave the compartment cover off the back of your refrigerator. Your compressor is super hot now and the start device relay is getting hot and may fail if the situation isn't resolved soon. I would get a new start device relay for the compressor also to prevent future failure. The reason for the hot areas is because the freon is not being cooled and there is freon tubing located inside the cabinet where you are touching. Please check my items on Ebay as username themackshack. Good Luck, Mack
