Yes sounds like the compressor starting device failure.

You have not given the full model number. Anyway if the compressor is AC powered 120 V. Not DC powered. Then relay kit part number for Whirlpool KitchenAid this model series will be Whirlpool OEM part # 8201786

Pull the power out until replacing the parts or getting checked. Don't let the compressor burn out.

Local technician may charge you between $ 100/= ~ $ 200/= including parts and labor to change the starting device. Not a bad idea to call a local service guy in your area.

I am in Toronto GTA area and my rate will be in the range of $ 160/= to $ 180/=. But I will most likely use a hard start relay kit. Not the Whirlpool OEM part. Now don't say that I am a rip off guy. That is my rate while another guy may charge only $ 100/=. But I am honest. Not the cheapest

I just ran into this problem this year. Is it very warm underneath your fridge? If you remove the cover in the back, you may find that you compressor is so hot you can't touch it. You can first try blowing out your cooling fins in the back of your fridge. A fan is connected to it and it should be next to the compressor. For my case that did not work. I then replaced the fan for the cooling fins and now my fridge works fine.

I'm Leo
This is a common defrost problem, The ice
is not being melted by the defrost system. he fan can't blow into ref.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check evaporator fan in freezer
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

If it is not freezing up or set too cold, you may be losing coldness somewhere. Are the seals all in good order? Do you open it very often and leave the door open? Do you put hot stuff in the fridge? All these things would contribute to that problem.

Your filter is located on the bottom behind the toe-kick plate.
Unscrew it and pull it out.
Install the new filter and tighten it.

Good day,
The best way to repair is to perform a step by step proceedure. It will get you there. Skip any steps you've covered.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

I found 2 different part numbers for this housing, but I suspect that they are actually stock numbers for the different stores. Partselect.com calls it their PN PS328166. Appliancepartpros.com calls it their PN AP3085317. Take your pick from whom you want to buy it, or look for another vendor. I did an internet search for appliance parts to find these two vendors.

A common reason a condenser fan is continually running within a refrigerator is the thermostat. ... A basic test is to set the thermostat on the warmest setting; if the cooling unit continues to run, even when it's being told to keep the fridge warmer, you have a broken thermostat.
