(1/1)

Brian Pendley:
I have a whirlpool ED5LHAXWB00. I cleaned it the other night and a few hours later we noticed a puddle on the floor. The coils were dirty so I blew them off, the compressor was VERY hot. I unplugged it and let it sit for 24 hours...replaced the start device and relay with a part number of 8201786..looks different...and compressor will kick on for about 15-30 seconds then shut off..after about a half hour the compressor was hot again.  Checked the ohms on the prongs and all are in range....

theoldstoveguy:
Sounds like a bad compressor. What is the amperage draw when it tries to start? ( if you have an amp probe)
