Change the control. The contacts within are burred from arcing OR take the control apart and sand down the points. Note: Success rate of filing down contacts in cold controls: not too good LOL

The fidge is freeziing everything


Has the temp control not been set too low by accident. If not it sounds like the thermostat contacts are stuck together or the sensor bulb has leaked. Unplug the fridge and try tapping the thermostat switch on the compressor lightly and see if that will make the fridge stop running. If that does not help, the thermostat will have to be replaced.

Our whirlpool fridge/freezer has stopped working today for no obvious reason. There is still power being supplied to the unit, as the light is still turning on once the door is opened, but it is no longer...


You will need to check the following parts:

  1. Compressor start relay
  2. Cold control thermostat
  3. Compressor
Compressor start relay
  1. With the fridge unplugged, and an Ohm-Meter in hand, remove the Compressor start relay after marking where each wire goes. The wires must be removed before testing the start relay.
  2. Use your ohm meter to test the white(overload) wire, with one meter probe on the terminal where the White wire went, and the other meter probe on the other terminals, 1 at a time, should read 0-1 ohm.
  3. For the brown relay, just put both meter probes in each hole, should read 0-1 ohm.
Cold control thermostat
  1. Put the Compressor start relay back in place and hook the wires back up to it.
  2. Find the cold control thermostat, it is the Switch with a knob that controls the Temperature. Tap under the console and on the knob in your refrigerator section and see if it comes on.
  3. If the contacts inside that cold control thermostat go bad, then when you tap the console or knob the refrigerator comes back on again.

It runs all the time


Switch the fridge off for some time till the frost clears off. make sure the compressor has cooled off before you start the fridge once again.Switch on and checck if there is any ICE formation in about 1-2 hours. If so your compressor, gas and performance is good.
Now we need to check to see if the thermostat is cutting off. Having kept the thermostat in normal mode , the compressor must cut off in less than 3-4 hours. If not the thermostat is faulty. Also if you look on if the fridge does not shut offf in baout 8-9 hours of running then your thermostat, timer can be suspects.
However if there is no cooling reached in the first place then it is possible that the compressor or the gas pressure is down.
Check for leak if the fridge is old before you waste money on filling and losing .

Hi my fridge freezes every thing even at it's


your thermostat is bad, what it does it sense the temperature set buy the control setting, once it goes bad it does not recognize the temperature hot or coold and the unit keep running and freezes everything. thermostat work like the therometer switch, when it reach certain temperature it cut off.

Fridge won't cut back on after it shuts off until its [powered off and on.


Hi, It sounds like the cold control is going bad. When it shuts of again, give it lettle bit and the tap on the control instead of turning it. If it kicks on, then you know it's the temperature control. Please let me know if this is what you find and if I can assist you with part# or how to order it.

Thanks
