    After a power outage, and power is restored to the refrigerator, there is power to the unit, light is on however the unit does not restart cooling. It has occured two times. I have to unplug the unit and then plug it in again and the unit resets and begins cooling.

Why is refrigerator not cooling


May be out of gas, or low on gas. Can you hear the unit running when you power it up?
May want to check on the overload unit to see if it is ok

Bad defrost timer


The defrost timer is bad when the frig goes into defrost and stays off the frig should restart if you turn the timer, the frig will run fine until the timer cycles back to defrost then the frig will not restart. If this is what happens, replace timer and your problems are solved.

Cat number ED25TEXHW00, side by side, Whirlpool Refrigerator. Neither fridg or freezer will cool. Lights turn on & condens fan runs. Compressor will not kick in. What to look for???


If the compressor will not kick on what you have is either a bad compressor or a bad starting device. Generally the unit will try and start and after 8 seconds or so you will hear a loud tick. That indicates the relay is bad. If the compressor is bad it will usually make a loud humming noise.

The start device is plugged into the side of the compressor. Unplug the frig. You can simply take off the wires to the start device (remember where they go!!!!!) and pull it off. You have two piece, the overload and the relay. The relay is the piece that is most likely the problem. Some machines will have these put together in a white plastic block. You can shake this entire piece and if you hear loud rattling it is broken. Sometimes the relay is visibly burned and blacked where it plugs into the compressor. Anyway, if you do not have this white plastic relay/overload combo, the relay is a brown square shaped plastic piece. Shake it and see if you hear rattling. If not, chances are very good the relay is ok, and the compressor is locked up.

Compressor changes are expensive and unless the frig is extremely nice and cost a pretty penny, they aren't worth fixing. Relays and overloads should not break $100 for the parts, and any tech should be able to change one in under 10 minutes. So if it's a relay fix that puppy! good luck :D

The clicking sound is either from your fan clicking against ice that's built up or from your compressor trying to kick on. Unplug your fridge and let it defrost for a day with the doors open. You will want to put everything in a cooler with plenty of ice. The next day plug your fridge back in. This should solve the click if it's your fan. If it doesn't then the click is in the compressor and you will need to hard start it. Hard starting a fridge is the equivalant of jumpstarting a car. It requires a specific machine. What happened was at the moment your compressor was going to kick on the power failed and so the compressor is frozen. Not temperature wise but figuratively. It needs a boost to get it kicking again. If you don't have a hard start machine consult fixya's local directory. This should just be a minimum service charge. I would try unplugging the fridge for a day first. It's cheaper. I hope this helps.
