Question about Whirlpool 20 cu. ft. / 566 liter Upright Freezer EV201MWH

Open Question

I moved my upright freezer (EVL201NXRQ) and it has since stopped working. I only moved it about three feet, but did have it unplugged for a few minutes. When I plugged the uit back in, it did nabsolutely nothing, no noise or sound from anything, just dead. A box of cereal fell behind the unit while I was moving it, but I don't see how this coould've caused the problem. Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: Freezer makes intermittent fan noise

one time i ran into this problem and found out the lady was putting hot things in the freezer creating alot of moisture. check your door seal also make sure its sealing if it had gaps you can heat it up with a hairdryer to streach it out.

Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack

Hi Pete,

I will take you up on the beer if we get this going.

If the fan is running and not cooling there is one thing that would be repairable other than that it is not worth it.

Go to the back of the freezer and at the bottom is the compressor (looks like a bowling ball, kinda anyway). Unplug the freezer, on the side of the compressor is a small black cover with wires going into it. Pry off this cover and you will see a couple of parts, these are the overload protector and relay.

Take a picture with your phone or digital camera so you know how they hook up then pull them off, they are tight but will pull straight off. If the relay rattles the part is bad, that simple. If not I will have to buy you a beer as you will most likely need a new freezer

Sounds like the main control board to the unit needed to be reset and with the resetting it has caused a communication error with the door sensor. Contact a service tech to move forward with a repair.

I have a Frigidaire freezer LFFU1424DW not freezing. Came home to melting ice and thawed food. I heard clicking noise like a fan but goes off after a few seconds. Help please.


first of all unplug that freezer and wait for 15 mins. move it five feet from the wall. after 15mins, plug it back and kick in compressor at the same time!!!! remember plug and kick at the same time. the ckicking noise come from the starting relais. this says that the compressor has a problem. If it doesn't work ; you will have to call a service person who will replace the compressor for you.

Difficult call there as whirlpool has a strange manor especially with the larger units. I had a callout on a double door whirlpool unit once and the compressor wouldn't come on but i couldn't find anything wrong. Anyway, i decided to leave the fridge untl the next day giving it a chance to possibly come on. About 5 hours later the customer called and said unit running very well and no more problems. Basically leave on for a few hours and see. If no output then call a tech .The testing procedures need equipment and electrical info..

I moved my upright freezer so I unplugged it , moved it and plugged it back in and it stopped working. I left it unplugged overnight, plugged it back in, same result. Any suggestions?


Maybe it is in the middle of a 21 minute defrost cycle? Is the fan running? Sometimes the defrost timer gets hung in defrost. If that is fine I would see if 120 volts is getting to the relay on the compressor. Sometimes an older temp control will die if fiddled with. Did you turn it before moving the freezer? Those are some things I would check. Sometimes wires get yanked out of place when you move an appliance so check that as well. Post your model number and I might have a service manual you can download OR just go to my website and find one HERE

My kenmore freezer stopped working for about two days it had been leaking water for a few months, then it started working again?


It could be that your defrost system is faulty. If the freezer does not defrost now and then it will fill up the cooling fins with ice and get warm. The leaking could also be an indication of two much ice. Did you unplug it when it stopped working and then plug it back in?

use an extension cord and try another plug. I may also be in defrost let it set for at least 35 min to see if the defrost cycles next check your wall plug for a ground fault. I will be a little red or white button in the center of the wall plug and it pops just like a circuit breaker just push it in until it stays. good luck

Kenmore Upright Freezer Works Sometime


try a new start relay and overload kit specifically for the make and model freezer you are working on. if compressor can be seen ,the numbers on it can be used to get correct oem start cap, relay ,and overload. if your unit is having starting problems that will usually fix it. if however, the stat is failing to bring it on a new stat is called for. but it sounds like it is having starting problems since you said it was off a long while then still struggled on the overload to start then finally did. if the new start components don't work then new freezer time. compressor replacement is to expensive anymore. good luck
