    We have an old fridge downstairs. While we were on vacation there was a lightning strike to the ground about 60 feet from our house. There was a power outage and our neighbors switched the breaker back on. Since we'eve been back there is a clicking sound. We plugged the fridge into another outlet and it starts again but later it clicks. The freezer is not freezing so I'm bewildered as to what the problem is.Help!!

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).

We have a 25.4 cubic Whirlpool side-by-side fridge/freezer stainless steel look. Since the last 2 weeks....the display lights showing temperatures in fridge and freezer the front water/ice dispenser unit...


the clicking is from the lamp relay which makes the lights flicker and its located on the units rear area in the back,without a model number i cant tell what this boards model number is but you need to replace this whole board as they are non repairable(this is usually caused by a power surge or outage,which can destroy these boards,also even if a lamp in the unit burns out this can destroy this board too)

My GE side by side fridge doesn't dispense water.


When you press the handle, do you hear/feel a click?
Is this just starting to happen after a power outage?
Is the ice machine making ice? Dispensing?

Do you have/know how to use a multimeter to check voltages at the water valve solenoid?

Thanks!

Icemaker dont work after power outage


Make sure the ice bail wire is not lifted. If it is, the ice maker will not make ice.

The water valve may have failed to. It's in the bottom back of the refrigerator, and the water line normally connects near where the valve is.

Let me know what you find.

It is unlikely that a power outage by itself will cause your problem. Recheck hour refrigerator thermostat. It should regulate to 38-42 degrees F. You can take an outdoor thermometer and put it into the fridge compartment, leave it for an hour or two and check. Adjust as necessary. If that doesn't fix it, we can proceed further.

Whirlpool Side by Side Fridge Not Cooling


Here's the sequence: First, the unit must be ice free. This happens after power down for about 2 days. If the compressor is clicking, power off for 15 minutes. While waiting....

Clean the condenser coils.

If a mechanical thermostat, does it click when you turn it from off?

Locate compressor in back of unit. Find largest pipe. Power on.

Pipe should frost over for about a minute and then either dry out or form ice on it. If frost stays, you need refrigerant.

If compressor is not running, it could be thermostat, defrost timer (find this little gem in the back of the refrigerator and turn the stub shaft about 1/3 way around...does this change anything?) If the timer is bad...replace it.

Compressors generally don't fail from long run cycles.

hope all this gets you somewhere.
