Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
I replaced the condenser fan motor with the 833697 old style instead of the newer ECM type factory installed and it's working fine. I now have a problem with the compressor not coming on. I hear a click and slight hum as if it's trying to come on then another click about 5 seconds later and the hum stops. Is it possible a relay or cap. was damaged from the extra heat when the fan was not running? Where should I start? (Whirlpool GS6SHEXNT00)
It is very possible that some damage may have been incuured when the fan failed. You can try replacing the compressor gardette and/or the capcitor. Other than that, it may have overheated the compressor and manifested in an internal failure. Follow the link below for parts information.
