My Whirlpool Fridge and freezer would not get cold.
My Whirlpool model (GB2FHDXWS09) Fridge and freezer would not get cold. The compressor would turn on for about 5 seconds and turn off. I called parts Direct and they knew it was the Capacitor right away. I also ordered the Start Relay just to replace it as well, that was my choice.

Received the parts super fast. I chose to pay for faster shipping.

Super great place to shop, watch help videos and get the answers you need for what you need. Super happy with everything about this company and the person that helped me on the phone to place the order and confirm I was ordering the right part.

Done and working. Took me about 5 minutes. Everything is plug and play besides taking a few screws off the back.

Thanks Team !

Issue 1, fridge section was freezing all liquids, then before i could get it looked at, both freezer and fridge stopped cooling. I do not know if the temp control is failing, or is it something else.
For model number wrt348fmes00
PartSelect logo
Hello Terry, thank you for your question. We would recommend testing/replacing the start relay and the capacitor on the compressor first. The start relay is PartSelect Number: PS11754876 and the capacitor is Part #: PS12348597. If those parts are not the issue the problem would be with the PartSelect Number: PS12070600 electronic control. I hope this helps!

My Maytag fridge does not restart when we have power outages, must manually restart, does not affect the fridge any other time. Is this the control board, relay start?
For model number MFW2055DRM00
PartSelect logo
Hello Dave, Thank you for the question. The Power Surge during the outage could have effected the Start relay. We suggest testing the Start Device with a multi meter to check the continuity. If it is good, the board will need to be replaced. We hope this helps!

Hello Ludovic, thank you for reaching out. We recommend that you check the capacitor, part number PS11757023, refrigerator air filter, part number PS2580853, and the evaporator fan motor, part number PS11755167.

Compressor and unit in immaculate condition, the suspect unit may have never even run.. compressor kicks on pulls about 5 A for five seconds then cuts out. Capacitor of the test good with the meter @ 11.6 uf -bad relay?
For model number Wrf535swhz07
PartSelect logo
Hi Daniel, thank you for contacting us. According to our research, we would recommend checking the start relay, part number PS16543583. If it is working fine, then you need to check the refrigerant in the compressor, part number PS16620272. The low refrigerant makes the compressor malfunction and go off due to low pressure. We hope this information is useful!

Whirpool refrigerator freezer not cooling. Both the rear fan and the fan in the freezer section are running. Both freezer and fridge are warm.
For model number WRT518SZFM00
PartSelect logo
Hi Ron, thank you for getting in touch. We believe your refrigerator is having this problem because of the faulty compressor start relay, part number PS11754876. It attaches to the compressor and helps start the compressor motor. You may need to replace it to solve the problem. We hope that helps!

I replace the capacitor and the relay switch and it’s still not getting cold or the freezer
For model number GS6NHAXVY00
PartSelect logo
Hello Chris, thank you for reaching out. Based on the description that you have provided, we would recommend checking the evaporator fan motor, part number PS11740362, to fix the issue. It circulates air over the refrigerator coils. These coils will convert the heat into cool air, which is then circulated. We hope this solves your problem!

My refrigerator compressor suddenly got noisy. The freezer and refrigerator still get cold but the compressor is cycling on often to keep up. I inspected the area and everything is clean. The unit is approx 3 years old and in a motorhome. What part(s) might i need?
For model number WRT111SFDM02
PartSelect logo
Hello Brian and thank you for writing. It certainly sounds like it could be a faulty start relay PS11754876 and/or faulty capacitor PS11757023, you should check for signs of damage, and replace if necessary. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime if you require further assistance.

My refrigerator and freezer is not cooling. All lights and fans are operational. Compressor is not kicking on at all and is warm to touch. Is the problem the compressor start relay, capacitor, or compressor itself?
For model number WRT518SZFM00
PartSelect logo
Hi Ryan, Thank you for your question. If the refrigerator and freezer sections are too warm, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check evaporator fan motor and blade, the start relay, the capacitor, the thermistors the defrost heater, and the condenser fan motor. We hope this helps! Good luck with the repair!
