Whirlpool Refrigerator - Model# ED22LF

Hi Catriver,

I was wondering if you can help me on another issue. Your help on my dishwasher was a great help.

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator(it's actually my son's fridge) that has stopped cooling. Both sides, refrigerator side and the freezer side. It is a Whirlpool, Model # ED22LF. It has an icemaker with an in the door dispenser. It showed no signs of failure, it just quit one day. The interior blower runs but no cool air. I unplugged it, thought it may reset, no luck. Any ideas of where to start?

    Thanks Catriver!! I'll try it today and report back.

    Hey Catriver,

    You were right on ...I have the overload and relay and it's in a white case and yes it rattles. I took it apart and the round or maybe half round disk is shattered and has been burnt. This fridge is specifically model #ED22LFXHW02. I found a parts site, but I'm not sure what all to buy, any suggestions?

    I REALLY appreciate your help!

Tom, I would start with the overload and relay that is on the compressor, If it is white it's a good possibility that it has failed. The fact that both sides are not cooling leaves me to believe the compressor is not operating. Take the overload and relay off. If they are both contained in a white cover shake it. If it rattles, I believe that is your problem. Let me know what you find...Catriver.

    Your part number is 8201799, you can find it at, around 47.00, If you can, please change the rating to Fixed, everytime I get rated helpful, my ratings go down. That's why I don't spend too much time on this site anymore. The more you help, the more you go in the gutter. Glad I could help, thx. Catriver.

I have a whirlpool ref/freezer the ice dispenser won't work. makes ice and water dispenser is ok. sv

Your model appears to be quite simple electrically. It does not have a major circuit board it's very possible that the pressure switch, wire connection at the dispenser, hinge or the interlock freezer lightswitch is bad on your model. Do you have a multi-meter/OHM meter? John T. Appliance 911 Appliance 911 Sea Breeze

Can a condenser on a whirlpool ED22LF go completely bad

Only way a condensor can go bad is if leaks refrigerant or a line gets kinked. If by chance it gets clogged it can be cleared with nitrogen, it all depends on hold much service the tech knows. hope this helps.

Jenn Air Refrigerator

Hi Tom, I think the clicking you are hearing is the board jumping into and out of defrost. You can test it your self by shorting L1 to test on the board. If it goes into defrost and jumps right back out (another click) it's probably the board. Unplug the harness and measure the continuity between 2 and 3 on the disconnect plug. On the Rx 1 scale you should read 20 to 40 ohms. If you have that the heater and T stat are ok. If not then go after the heater and T stat. The heater should ohm out at about 26.5 ohms. When you do the resistance checks on 2 and 3 make sure to unplug it from the board and have the power off. I believe it is a yellow and white/blk wire. Catriver

My whirlpool refrigerator trips the main power

Pankaj, Do you have a ohm meter? Sounds like you have something shorting back. First take the meter to the cord. On the end of the cord, you should show no continuity from each male prong to the ground prong on the cord itself. If you show continuity, you have something shorting back. Then I would start with the compressor, Unplug the wires going to the overload and relay, make sure the units unpluged and meter the cord again. If it's ok, then the problem is in the overload and relay. Start there and let me know, if it still showing a short, then we will have to go to the controls, heater, and repeat the process until you find the culprit. Catriver.

Sani, see if the evaporator fan is running. That would be the fan in the freezer compartment. It moves the cold air to the bottom. If that is ok, then you may have a defrost problem. Is the freezer panel in back all frosted over? If so, it's probabley a defrost issue. Check these things first and post back...Catriver.

Leaking compressor

jccam, just wondering if the service tech tapped into the system. This way he could tell whether or not you were low on charge or had a restriction in the system. You can replace the compresser on this model. It has to be done by a epa certified technician. Part number for the compressor kit is 2212192. You can see if it would be cost effecient at this link Catriver post back.
