Cool Refrigerator not cooling, fan working, compressor hot but not running
Model Number: ER8MHMXML02   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years

Here is the description of my problem. Please tell me if you can determine the root cause based on the below. Your help is very appreciated

Refrigerator stopped cooling completely. The light is on when the door is open and I can hear the fan in the freezer running. I performed the following steps and below are my observations:


Turned the temperature control all the way to the left to turn off
- Fan stopped

After a while, I turned the temperature control on
- Fan starts immediately
- After a few seconds (10-30 seconds) I hear a click from outside back of the refrigerator. I am assuming some sort of relay
- the compressor does not start, however
- I continue to hear fan working continuously, but compressor does not seem to run
- After a while compressor gets hot (I can still hold my hand on it without burning but it is pretty hot)

Turned the temperature control all the way to the left to turn off again
- Fan stopped immediately
- After a few minutes (1-3 minutes) I hear the same click as before.
