Default Refrigerator stops running every few days
Model Number: ET8MTKXKQ00   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My Refrigerator stops running every few days to a week or more. I can restart it manually by turning the dial off and on which will start the compressor again until the next event. I have changed out the following parts to no avail:
Bimetal defrost Part number: AP3108454

Part number: AP3108454


Cntrl-elec Part number: AP3853127

Part number: AP3853127


I really like this model which has worked well in the past but I do not know how to proceed with this somewhat intermittent problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like you have a bad thermostat. If you can reset it, by turning off then on, the thermostat is bad. Here is a link to the part, as well as a link to the parts diagram page. Hope this helps. Part number: AP3084361
