Question about Whirlpool 25.4 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/Thru-the-Door Ice & Water - Satina Stainless-Look

1 Answer

Whirlpool gold refrigerator warming up and freezer defrosting

Cleaned the coils and underneath. Turned the power back on and it we can hear a "clicking" sound about every 2-1/2 minutes...like the compressor is trying to start. Is there a reset button?

    I think you hit this right on the head and there is a bunch of metal pieces falling out of it. Problem is..that part number is NLA. Now what?

This clicking noise is the relay on the side of the compressor. It has been damaged and not working properly. Simply replacing this should be able to start your compressor! I would be VERY surprised if this was not the problem based on your description. If I can be of further assistance let me know! good luck!

There is a defrost coil and timer to control it, you will have to check those to see if they work, If you are unplugging it to defrost it would take hours to clear the ice.

Why do freezer coils ice up on my Stainless Steel Whirlpool refrigerator (model GB2SHDXTS)?


On your model your cntrl board has a relay that can stick causing the compressor to always run even when the unit is turned off or in defrost. turn the fridge off, move the temp of the freezer to it's warmest setting and it should display a line in the freezer and fridge temp display. listen to hear if the compressor is running in back of the unit. if it is you need part number: 12868513

Amana abb1924dew bottom freezer not freezing but hear "motor"...and fridge not very cold...cleaned underneath already..Help please


First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Check cold control (thats where you turn it colder)

Fridge is warm and freezer is cooler than normal


Possible bad defrost timer. Locate timer underneath the fridge and manually turn the knob. Element should come on and start defrosting. If defrosting starts then the timer is bad. Check also the element and thermostat.

Freezer cycling on and off, will freeze then thaw out


You have a defrost timer that has possibly slowed down because it is defective. I need you to time the defrost timer or turn the defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment until the refrigerator compressor stops running. It should remain off for about 20 minutes. If a lot longer and the refrigerator does not defrost regularly about 3 times a day then it needs to be replaced. Yes there could be something other than the timer, but if you need my help I'm here let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool gold:upper half of refridgerator side not cold


Either the evap fan has a problem, or the defrost system has failed. You should never see frost in the freezer section as the defrost sensor should sense that the coils need to be defrosted before that much frost accumulates.

Unplugging to clean out helped because the frost got a chance to melt away.

If you find the evap motor is running, then the things to check are the defrost sensor, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater.
