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
Hi. My 'fridge isn't cold. Everything seems to match the description
for an issue with the relay compressor. It seems to be working,
light's on, fan's on, sounds like it's getting cold, motor runs, then
clicks, turns off, repeat every three or four minutes, inside is
warm. I took the cover off and vacuumed out the vent really well,
then flipped the breaker leaving it off for a couple of minutes before
restarting. Nothing. I turned the temperature dials up down and all
around. Nothing. How do I find this magic box to try triggering
the switch? Not even Whirlpool's site has the manual
available. Best of all, it's sunday, the food's warm (just went
shopping of course!) and there is not a repair tech in town available
'til tomorrow? Please help! Just in case, the model numbers
GD2NHGXLQ00 made 08/02. Thanks!
p.s. should i just turn it off it the meantime, the fan just seems to be making it warmer?
Sounds like the relay switch. Light works, fan works, but is not cold. Also if you smell a burnt metal very strong smell. Relay switch must have burnt.

Turn it off for an hour or so and give the coils time to thaw just in case they somehow froze up. also if the frig was tilted in the wrong direction (which it doesnt sound like it was since it has food in it!!!) it could need time to let the refrigerant and oil settle back into the compressor.
where are you located (cold or warm climate)?
and where is the frig located (in your home)?
