Freon does not make a noise a compressor can if this noise is a knock then it is coming from the compressor and to solve it the compressor has to be changed

Compressor runs constant. whirl etomsrxtloo


Maybe low in Freon, inefficient compressor or partially restricted.
1.) Check the Freon level and add Freon if needed.,
2.) Check for leak and repair if any
3.) Change the dryer filter, pull a deep vacuum then charge the unit according to the manufacturer's recommendation. See the name plate for more info.
Note: skip all the above if compressor found inefficient.

Compressor is running but not cooling.


Hello,
A few things to check are is thier frost build up in the freezer?
or is the compressor not to hot,if it is hot it should be working ok
oddly enough if it isnt too hot its because all the refrigerant is leaked out and it doesnt have to work hard to pump it so its kinda cool,a compressor that is pumping the refrigerant (freon) its working hard and hot

Hello Thayden,

I understand that the Refrigerator compressor is not working on your unit. There are three possibilities of why the compressor is not working, the compressor is bad, the starter is bad, or the capacitor is bad.

To check the starter you will need to do the following (most common): Refer to picture at the bottom of the post
1. Unplug the unit
2. On the side of your compressor there is a cover this is the starter relay cover.
3. Remove the cover
4. Remove the wires
5. Remove the starter (top piece stuck on two rods)
6. Check if bad (shack it if you hear a noise/knocking it is bad and will not allow compressor to start)
7. Replace it and the bottom one the over load.
8. Reinstall in reverse

The Run Capacitor (uncommon that they go bad but possible)
1. The little black or silver box that two wires run to from the starter
2. Check to see if contacts or unit is burnt.

The Compressor
1. If you replace the above items and the compressor is not running the the problem is the compressor. This will take a licensed HVAC person to replace.

The above parts are inexpensive between $30-$50 at your local appliance parts store. There is a 50/50 chance that this will work and save you the cost of replacing the compressor or the whole refrigerator.

Thank you for choosing FIxYa.com

Whirlpool model ed5fhgxkq03 side by side. Lights


check your temp controll to make sure it isnt broken or open circuit also your defrost timer could be stuck in defrost! next check your compressor for running and see if it is hot!! or just warm? if it is just warm and cycling /running then your low on freon due to a internal leak

Whirpool GS6SHAXLB03 Refrigerator or freezer do not cool.


This sounds like it's out of freon. Not just low but out. That clicking noise is a thermal overload shutting down the compressor. If you continue let it just click away it will burn this overload out and the compressor will have to be replaced. If the refrigerator just started doing this suddenly it could be that the compressor is locked up. If it has external capacitors either the start or run capacitor could be bad. If the capacitors are good then you could try a hard start kit to try to unlock the compressor.

I have side by side whirlpool,It quit working not


no it probably doesnt need freon. the noise your hearing is the compressor trying to start  due to either a bad start relay or a stuck compressor. on whirlpool refrigs the most common problem is bad relays this is a very easy part to replace and the part is in expensive. less than 70 dollars. the part number is 8201786 and the kit has very good instructions for doing it your self. if you have any questions please ask thanks Peyton

Whirlpool side-by-side melted relay.


Maytag (owned by Whirlpool since 2005) has issued a recall on the compressor relay due to fires. Whirlpool brands are not listed in the recall but it looks like they should be. The problem goes back to Jan 01 according to the Consumer Product Safety Comission.

Frost on the low side line means the system is overcharged (too much freon).  Look on the tag insided the fridge and it will tell you how much freon it holds.  Usually 4.25-5.50 ounces on average.  The loud noise sounds like you have air in the system.  I would evacuate, from the high side while running, and let it run empty for 5-10 minutes.  Then while running put the valve core back in the high side.  Then unplug the fridge and charge with proper amount of freon thru the high side.  Wait about 5-10 minutes and plug back in.  Normal low side pressure should be 0-3 psi.  This is a good indicator of the proper amount of freon in a good working system.
