There is probably a cracked solder joint or broken component. Go over the board with a fine toothed comb and resolder any components that are loose.

    else there must be some problem in the input power.

    this will also make the unit to stop due to over heating.

    also please have a check with the power getting in

Ed25e refrigerator running inconsistently

the knob you're turning is the cold control,it's a thermostat and it's sticking,when you turn it or tap on it you're freeing it up,you need to change it out .go here and see the part and part number 819470 it's around 55 dollars
when you remove the old control install the new one the same way,you might have to bend it a little and you have to cover the metal rod with the plastic cover that comes with it.not hard to do.

It does not cool up and does not run but if i tab the light inside it runs for a while and stops again without cooling.

It sound like you have a bad temperature control.If you can tap it to make it run it must be bad or maybe a loose wire. Hope this helped and thank for using Fix ya

Nothing running in refrigerator. Unplugged unit for 2 hours then pllugged back in. unit ran for about 30 seconds then stopped again

1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.
try this

Compressor & Evap. Fan both work for 12 hours then evap stops

I believe that because defrost is done by the mother control board this is why this is happening the part of the board that controls defrost is malfunctioning and the only way to resolve the problem is to replace the mother board part number WR55X10656 You can find the replacement board at these places below.

Whirlpool Refrigerator Stops Running

I can help with this issue , Take the cover off with the controls to see inside , make sure all wires are connected to t-stat it will have a slim tube coming out of it , if there all intact it is a bad connection in the bi-metal inside the tstat which can not be repaired. you must replace your thermostat. sears parts topically has the best price. hope that helps you out , let me know if you have any prob. or questions.

Refrigerator not colling properly

Let it run until you have a problem again then look at the back wall of the inside of the freezer, if there is frost then it's not defrosting and that would be your problem (usually the defrost heater). If you don't see frost then you need to determine if the compressor is running or not. It's possible to hear the two fans run, but not the compressor. If the compressor is running, along with the 2 fans, then it is a sealed system problem and usually not worth fixing. If it's not running you'll need to check the compressor start relay on the side of the compressor. It is possible for a bad compressor to cause the relay to fail, so replacing it may or may not get you going again.
