DO I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING WITH REFRIGERANT TO REPLACE THE COMPRESSOR? I WAS TOLD THAT I NEED A TECHNICIAN TO DO THIS BECAUSE OF REFRIGERANT.
Answer Yes you do. There are a number of things you would need. 1) Refrigeration certification in order to buy freon. 2) A number of specialty tools, such as torches, gauges, vacumn pump, charging cylinder, etc. It really isn't a normal job for someone without sealed system experience. If you can get someone who can provide this service we would be more then happy to provide the compressor to you for them to install.

What size compressor would this be?
We do not have the size of the compressor for the model. In most cases the Horsepower of the compressor will be either a 1/4 or a 1/3 HP.
What is the average labor cost to replace the compressor. In other words, how long does iit take?
We would not be able to advise on the cost to replace a compressor as each company charges different labor rates. In most cases a compressor change out can take anywhere between 1 1/2 and 3 hrs just depending on how difficult the manufacturer made it to get to all the lines to braze then out and back in and if there is any modifications requires to adapt the compressor.
What refrigerant is this compressor kit designed for and will it work in the GE Monogram built in all freezer model zifs36nmlh currently using R134A.
The compressor kit WR87X10211 is a R134a refrigerant type compressor but will not work for your unit. Your unit has a variable speed compressor and would need to use compressor kit part number WR87X10111.
Freezer does not freeze and refrigerator is warm. Fan will run but no cold air.
Answer Hello Kevin. See if the compressor is running. If not, it sounds like the main control board or the start relay is bad on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My refrigerator is randomly shutting off and cycling back on after a few hours of use. The unit seems to be too warm at times, although it does cool back down to normal temp after a bit. There is no icing in the freezer section indicating a problem with the defrost. Would the compressor be going out or could this be another issue? Any troubleshooting to narrow the problem would be much appreciated.
Answer Tom, The first place to start is the condenser coil. Check and clean any dust, lint, debris from the coils and area. This is where the heat exchange occurs, and a dirty coil can disrupt the procedure and cause the refrigerator to become inefficient. You'll also want to check and make sure the condenser fan motor is running and clean as well. The next step would be the cold control WR09X10030 The internal contacts could be "sticky" and faulty, causing a delay in the cooling mode. The compressor should be your last option, after the other components are checked or tested.
