For Whirlpool Run Capacitor (Part Number: AP3131713)

Answer or Comment

My refrigerator and freezer have become sporadic as to when it runs/cools. Sometimes it will start up and run just fine, other times it will start and immediately stop, or will start run for 20 seconds or so and then stop. It will cool for 2-4 days just fine then it will act crazy for a day or two. It is approximately 2 years old and I have cleaned the coils. The condenser and evaporator motors seem to work properly when it runs. I'm just wondering if this could be a capacitor issue?

ANSWER Hello By, From the problem description/complaint, this has to be one of two things causing the issue. Either the W10366605 Electronic Defrost Control, or the 2198202 Cold Control.
