Replace the overload/relay which is plugged onto the side of the compressor with 2 or 3 wires going to it . This piece is easily replaceable as it just plugs onto the compressor . Be sure to have your model number with you so you get the correct replacement part . DO NOT install a hard start kit , which is junk , and a way for the parts place to make money . Always use the correct OEM replacement part designed for your refrig .

You've narrowed down the problem by determining that the compressor kicks in and out. Without having the proper tool to jump start the compressor, you will either have to call a local refrigerator repair service and have them test it, or purchase a compressor relay, overload, capacitor and take a chance that those got burnt out instead of the compressor.

Whirlpool WRF560SEYB Refrigerator did not turn back on after power outage, display said "cooling off"


Sounds like you had a power outage?-- did the lights go dim for a few minutes, before the power actually went out?-- Sometimes, low voltage will cause the compressor motor to over heat-- so it might have to 'cool down'-- What happened next?-- Did you try it again an hour or so later/-- Tell us more-- Mack B

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).

My air is not running correct.. blowing hot air out.. what can we do to fix this problem


hi

this may be because following reasons.

1. you might have kept the temperature selection switch in heater please check it.
2.there may be leak in the AC line which might have drained the refrigirant so no cooling effect.check the line for leakage.
3.the refrigirant used may be less which doesnt give much cooling effect.
4.the cooling fan which cools the refrigirant may not working or speed is reduced which may reduces the heat transfer rate

if my answer were useful to you please vote me.

Compressor not kicking in on 'cool'; or ;dry'


Have you checked that the controls are not set to fan only? If you have lets go to the next step. All window A/C have thermal switch.. These thermal switch keeps the compressor from overheating. In the event that the compressor is overloading it would trip then click back on as the compressor cools down. Sometimes those switches go bad but the compressor is ok. They are mounted on the compressor themselves and accesable once the A/C unit cover has been opened.

ED5SHEXKQ01 is 7 years old. Stopped cooling. Fan is running.


It could be your compressor trying to kick in. Or it could be your defrost system trying to start or stop. The least expensive thing to start is to replace the start kit on the compressor. Call or email us and we'll be sure to get the right part to you asap. You need to turn it off NOW before you burn the other parts up and don't turn it back on until you install new parts.

Freezer and Refrigirator not cooling


You didn't say if the compressor is running or not. If it is and all other things you stated are running then it has a sealed system problem. The sealed system comes with a 5 yr warranty in most cases (check owners manual). If the compressor is not running then listen for a click at the compressor. If you hear the click then I would replace the relay on the compressor. If you need further help I will need the complete model # off the sticker inside the fridge section.
