Hello,

It's either the start device on the compressor or you have a bad compressor. You'll have to pull it away from the wall and take the bottom back panel off to check the compressor. It will likely be real hot to the touch from what you described happening. If there is a little white colored box on the left side take that off and remove the wires, etc. and shake it... if it rattles and debris falls out then that's the problem. It's fairly common and they make a kit to replace it with a better designed part that's real easy to install yourself.

Take care.

    I NOTICED THE BOX ON THE LEFT SIDE WITH CIRCUIT BOARD INSIDE. WHAT IS THIS UNIT CALLED AND WHAT DOES IT DO? I MAY BE ABLE TO REPLACE THE COMPONENTS MYSELF BEFORE REPLACING IT.

    Hello,

    This is overload "klixon" to open protecting the
    compressor from fusing.

    Take care.

See if you have power going to relay, and then take relay off then make sure each pin on compressor is not going to ground if so replace relay.

Not freezing or cooling


The clicking is probably the starter/overload relay which starts the compressor. If the relay is good then the compressor is bad. Check your compressor relay- http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/check/compressorrelay.php

Gold Whirlpool 25.3 cu.ft refrigerator stop working


if the compressor is very hot then it can be possible that the compressor is getting faulty,but also other possibility can be the compressor relay.if the relay beside the compressor is got faulty then the compressor gets over heated.so first unplug the unit from main power outlet and then remove the relay and check it with continuity to confirm the fault.is it relay or compressor.

6 yr old whirlpool fridge/freezer side by side - no cooling


If the compressor is not running at all and not cooling or freezing it is most likely that the control module is u/s or that the compressor is u/s. If the compressor is running it ios most likely that the control module and / or the thermostat is u/s, or that the unit needs regassing. Call a service engineer.
