Whirpool Fridge and frezzer not cooling HELP ME!!


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....

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


My part look up say this is the relay for your model.Was compressor ever change that would be the only way to use the relay you install?
