Whirlpool fridge not cold at all and not making any noises
« on: December 01, 2010, 01:22:45 PM »
I have a fridge in the utility room and it stopped working completely.  The lights are the only thing running.  I don't hear anything from the fan or the compressor.  Is there anyway to test the compressor to see if it works and worth fixing.

Thanks for the help!

Might be a bad defrost control
