Compressor is losing you. a good Replacement will do

Refrigerators | Answered on Feb 11, 2019

How soon did you start it up after you moved it & put it in its place?
If you plugged it in to soon after moving. Oil may have still been up in the wrong place of the compressor. Unplug it for about an hour. Then plug it back in. By plugging it in to early after moving you could have burnt up the compressor. This happens often.

You need the following :
1. Look for the leaks in the copper tube pipings.
2. Recharge the preon tank with a new preon
3. If not starting, check the starting capacitor.
4. If all of the above is correct, then its time to call your nearest refrigeration serviceman to fixed it,. You cant do the troubleshooting alone if you dont have the proper tools and equipment to use..thanks

Do you have an ice maker? If so the hose for the ice maker may be loose or damaged. CHeck and replace as needed. If not then you need to give more detail on the make and model of your unit.

Cooling coils have frosted over to the point that cool air from the freezer is not being pulled through the coils into the fresh food compartment.
The most common reason for the coils to freeze over, is because the defrosting coil has burned out and frost has build up to the point it is now solid ice. This is an easy fix, once you determine this is the problem. If you have a defrosting coil, you can see if it is burned out by just looking at it. It will be blackened and glass maybe cracked.
If it is a heated. If it is a rod type defrosting bar, that will be beyond most homeowners to evaluate. It could also be the defrost thermostat, also not so easy to determine by someone without the proper diagnostic tools.
But it can be done. (Check youtube)
Might be better to call an appliance repairman.

make sure you have proper line voltage, make sure any motor start relays are working correctly, then if you have a motor start capacitor try replacing it, USE ALL PROPER SAFETY PROCEDURES ... if none of that solves your problem you probably have a bad compressor, if that is the case its time to call a refrigeration person because that requires specialized equipment.

The number you provided looks more like an item number then a model number. Please look inside the fridge and find the model sticker usually located on the inside wall either right or left top side and give us that number. whirlpool model numbers typically look like this "WRF540CWHW" and is needed to look up what you have. Digital controls usually have the sensor within the control panel but sometimes will have a rectangular box holding the sensor. if it has a mechanical knob then that knob is the sensor.

It sounds as if one of 2 things could be your problem. In the freezer compartment remove ice maker. Remove the rear panel around condenser fan. If the fan is running then you have ice build up. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to remove all the ice. Take a piece of#14 bare wire to clean drain hole.With the fridge off pour some hot water in the drain. It will either be the fan or ice buildup.

Make sure the filer arm is down and calling for ice and listen to see if the valve that allows water to enter the icemaker is making a noise. You may be familiar with that sound. If you don't hear it. the valve may need to be replaced. That is usually the culprit. Sometimes those older fridge valves are no longer available. You don't always have to have one that fits the same bracket. It just needs to functionally work as a valve and fit the tubes.
