Question about Whirlpool GS6NBEXR Side by Side Refrigerator
After power went on off severl times in a row, frig is making a clicking sound like something is trying to come on, and now frig is not running, getting warmer in both compartments.
The clicking sound is either from your fan clicking against ice that's built up or from your compressor trying to kick on. Unplug your fridge and let it defrost for a day with the doors open. You will want to put everything in a cooler with plenty of ice. The next day plug your fridge back in. This should solve the click if it's your fan. If it doesn't then the click is in the compressor and you will need to hard start it. Hard starting a fridge is the equivalant of jumpstarting a car. It requires a specific machine. What happened was at the moment your compressor was going to kick on the power failed and so the compressor is frozen. Not temperature wise but figuratively. It needs a boost to get it kicking again. If you don't have a hard start machine consult fixya's local directory. This should just be a minimum service charge. I would try unplugging the fridge for a day first. It's cheaper. I hope this helps.
