Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

Do you know where I can get a wiring diagram on a whirlpool side by side refrigerator model no ED5PHEXMB00? Mainly for the compressor. Freezer is not getting cold. I vacuumed the coils in front and defrosted it but the compressor doesn't come on. I have a friend looking into it who is a certified electrician and an expert in refrigeration but needs a wiring diagram.

Hello Thayden,

I understand that the Refrigerator compressor is not working on your unit. There are three possibilities of why the compressor is not working, the compressor is bad, the starter is bad, or the capacitor is bad.

To check the starter you will need to do the following (most common): Refer to picture at the bottom of the post
1. Unplug the unit
2. On the side of your compressor there is a cover this is the starter relay cover.
3. Remove the cover
4. Remove the wires
5. Remove the starter (top piece stuck on two rods)
6. Check if bad (shack it if you hear a noise/knocking it is bad and will not allow compressor to start)
7. Replace it and the bottom one the over load.
8. Reinstall in reverse

The Run Capacitor (uncommon that they go bad but possible)
1. The little black or silver box that two wires run to from the starter
2. Check to see if contacts or unit is burnt.

The Compressor
1. If you replace the above items and the compressor is not running the the problem is the compressor. This will take a licensed HVAC person to replace.

The above parts are inexpensive between $30-$50 at your local appliance parts store. There is a 50/50 chance that this will work and save you the cost of replacing the compressor or the whole refrigerator.

I have a Whirlpool ED5KVEXVQO2 Side by Side refrigerator. It is still very cold but making odd noises and smells like rotting oranges, mainly in freezer. Is this freon?


refrigerant doesn't smell much at all. remove all drawers, clean and defrost, rinse inside with sanitizer. you may find somethimg fallen where you can't see it normally. also check and clean outside as well, particularly around the compressor and condenser where it gets very hot.

Whirlpool top freezer fan not runnning and no voltage to the fan with the compressor running


This refrigerator has a basic wiring diagram showing power going through the defrost timer, compressor and compressor start components. Because the model number could be very close to the ET8WTKXK your model may have either a ADC, adaptive defrost control or typical 482493 Defrost Timer

Noisy Whirlpool refrigerator


See if the sound is coming from the fridge in the top where the controls are. This would be he electronic control. They will click when going bad. Part 6 on this diagram.

Could also be a fan blade hitting something like ice or a wire. One fan is in the freezer behind the rear cover and one is underneath next to the compressor. The one in the freezer may cut off when door is opened so hold the door switch down when checking.

Could be the starter/overload relay but you would also have a cooling problem if that's the case.

Whirlpool side by side, blowing hot air on both sides


First, you must determine if the compressor is running. The compressor is located at the bottom of the unit in the rear. Feel for motor heat and slight vibration. If it is cool then the problem may be an inexpensive start relay. If the compressor is very hot, the start relay could also be the problem or the motor has seized. Find the wiring diagram in the rear of the unit to replace this relay which should be availible at your local refrigeration supplie house.

Fridge not cooling


Most of the time on a whirlpool the problem is the relay on the compressor sometimes called the start device. I would replace that first. If you need help finding the part let me know. I will need the complete model # from the sticker inside the fridge section. You can look it up with diagrams at http://www3.sears.com/.
