    Whirlpool side by side 1998 fan working, compressor just stopped, not hot to touch doesn't make any noise like humming or clicking. Fl home so the whirpool is only used six months a year, no dirt or dust on coil? Could it be relay or overload switch?

SOURCE: Motor runs, freezer defrosting and fridge won't cool

If you have frozen coil at the back of the freezer section, then the defrost thermostat is usually failing. Allow the fridge to defrost completely overnight. If the fridge restarts cooling immediately after defrost, then the problem was the defrost system. In that case the fridge will stop cooling again in a couple of days, as soon as the evaporator coils restart freezing and the condenser goes under stress with the whole cooling system loosing efficiency.

Please list the complete model number found inside the refrigerator on on the door frame. With the model number I will be able to help you better. If your refrigerator is an older model then with what you described could possibly be a defrost timer gone bad. Let me know what you find, Thanks,Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Amana refrigerator stopped cooling.

Have you been hearing a clicking noise coming from behind the unit? This is the first indication of a failed compressor relay. Pull the unit out and unplug it. Remove the back cover and go to the compressor. You will find a device on the side of the compressor that has the wires hooked to it. This is the compressor relay and overload. It may be under a black cap. Remove the cap to access it. It may have 2 pieces to it or it may just have the 2 pieces encased in a white and tan box. Remove this box and shake it. If it rattles like gravel in it then it is bad. If it is in 2 pieces then it will have a brown relay. This is the piece that will rattle if bad. The white and black piece with one wire is the overload. They most never go bad. Use this replacement part kit...8201786 and follow the detailed instructions included in the kit. Thanks for the question. Hope this helps.

YOUR SAFETY SWITCH IS CUTING OF. THIS SWITCH IS NEAR THE COMPRESOR. SHOULD COMPRESOR GET VERY HOT IT IS INDICATION THAT IT NEEDS TO BE REPLEACED. IN THIS CASE SOMETIMES IS BETTER TO GET NEW FRIDGE AS REPAIRES MIGHT COST TO MUCH

My whirlpool side by side fridge/freezer is making a loud noise while running.


If the noise is coming from inside, the evaporator fan motor (the fan motor that circulates cool air located in the freezer section) may be the culprit. If noise is on the outside, the condenser fan motor may be the problem. This is the fan motor that removes the heat from the refrigerator to the room.

Evaporator fan is running but refrigerator side still not cool


Possibly blocked vent between fridge and freezer. could be ice or frozen food that has gotten in vent, blocking air flow. Also you say the fan is running but can you SEE IT? I have had occasion where the MOTOR is running but the fan blade is loose on the motor shaft. especially top freezer models.

Whirlpool top freezer 18c.ft w/ icemaker: freezer works fine. fridge does not cool below 56 degrees. vacuumed dust from bottom, turned entire unit off and restarted but still not working, in back of


i think you have to check to make sure that
the fan inside the freezer is cycling on.
it will be concealed of course but you should
be able to hear it. i replaced one once with
the same symptoms and that fixed fridge
portion of a 2002 or 3 whirlpool. make sure
to listen closely and not mistake it for the
stronger fan motor which operates in
conjunction with and nearby the compressor.

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling after storm


Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

Whirpool wgi fridge freezer, fridge not cooling?


Most frideges get all their cooling from the freezer. There will be a fan and duct in the back of the freezer that pushes cold air down into the fridge. If the duct is blocked with ice or the fan motor has quit. Your freezer will work fine but the fridge will barely cool at all. Check that the fan runs when the compressor is running, ( turn both temp knobs to the highest cooling and leave door open until comp. comes on). If the fan runs your duct is plugged. If not you need a new " Freezer Fan Motor". Most are simple to replace and cost around $100.00.

My side by side whirlpool ref. doese not cool or freeze even though the motor continues to run.


If it is not cooling in either freezer or fridge and the compressor is running you are more than likely short of refrigerant which has leaked out. The leak needs to be repaired and the fridge recharged. If there is slight cooling you should make sure that the fans are operating and that you have airflow.
