Question about Whirlpool 25.2 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator ED25PQXF
We had a electrical storm the other night. After this storm the freezer got real hot and melted all the food. It is like the defroster is staying on and the compressor is not kicking on.. What can I do?
It sounds like the defrost termination t/stat (located on the freezer coil) and the defrost timer have both been jammed on by the storm. A quick way to check is to locate the defrost timer (every model seems to locate it in a different position) look for a round plastic cover around 15mm diameter inside the fridge or freezer, remove the cover and rotate the timer clockwise until you hear a firm "click" then plug the fridge into the power & see if it starts (some defrost timers can also be located near the kick plate or near the compressor well) if the compressor starts (I'm such it will) replace both of these parts.
