Question about Whirlpool EL7ATRR Refrigerator
The fans are running and the compressor is very warm almost hot to the touch. i can hear liquid moving in the compressor and it does turn on and off but i am not geting cold air coming out i am getting a cool air. do i need to replace the compressor or does it just need a recharge?
First, please re-check to see if both fans are running, the condenser fan by the compressor and the evap fan in the freezer. Next, empty the freezer and remove the evap cover. look at the evap coils. Are they completly frosted up -- if so, you have a defrost problem - this will cause the condition you describe- IF they are not frosted, are only a few of the passes of coil frosted and some just wet with no frost? Then that means you need some freon. The fact that you have some cooling means that the compressor is probabaly OK.
