Hello, my Whirlpool ED25PEXHW01 stopped cooling after we cleaned it. The compressor is not working at all. We think it is the start relay/overload, but I see that there are two separate sets of parts listed that I could get (parts 13 and 16 on the unit schematic) in 16 I see a jumper strap that I don't see on my unit. Could you advise whether I need 13 or 16? Thanks!

Hello The compressor on my Whirlpool side-by-side quit working and I smelled burnt plastic. I pulled the starter relay and it is badly burned and the capacitor that plugs into it shows exterior damage from the overheated relay. I assume I should replace the capacitor as well. Correct? The capacitor (I assume it is a capacitor) is a black box approx. 2.25" X 1.25" X .75". Is a capacitor included in with the starter kit? Or do I have to purchase that separatey? If so, do you sell a replacement capacitor? My real concern is that the compressor is bad but I first want to try replacing these parts to see that will fix it. Thanks

There's no instructions on installing the start relay and overload kit 4287835. How does it install in my Roper RS25AEXLQ00 side by side fridge? The burnt out relay had two white wires and a red plugged in the back.

I have an old fridge that recently stopped cooling. I can hear it blow air though. The compressor is warm to the touch. I looked online it sounds like it might be a compressor start relay. Can you help me find the correct part number?

I believe the compressor start relay has failed on my roper side-by-side (RS25AEXLQ00). This has happened before due to heavy accumulation of cat hair on the compressor coils. I'm wondering what kit I should purchase: "start relay on compressor": AP30833556 or "compressor starting device kit": AP3885081?

Had a couple of inches of water in our basement where our 2nd refrigerator is located. It is no longer cooling or freezing. The power is still working and the fan appears to be blowing but not really cool air. Have tried resetting it with cooler off switch and unplugging it but doesn't seem to work. I don't hear a clicking sound I've heard mentioned and the compressor doesn't seem hot. Unfortunately the water issue has happened several times but the refrigerator has alway made it through before. Any suggestions as to what may have been affected - compressor relay switch, compressor? Or where I should start looking? I'll try and deal with the basement flooding. Thanks for any suggestions Paul

I moved this unit to a new location 4 miles away. When I plugged it in in the garage, it tripped the GFI and won't start. The power cord is not damaged. Why won't the unit run?

My side by side fridge stopped cooling last night. Fridge is running. I took back bottom cover off, no wire damage. Coils and fans all clean (I clean 4-6x per year regularly) Compressor is pretty hot to the touch. Starter (?) on side of compressor clicks on, then off after 5-10 seconds. Is the starter my problem? Thanks
