Default Compressor Clicking - Replaced relay and overload
Model Number: GB2SHKXKQ00   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Last weekend clicking sound started. Would last 15 seconds and stop and after 3-4 minutes, the process would start again. Freezer and refrigerator would stop cooling.

Got a relay and overload locally. replaced it but it did not fix the problem. After further research, found that a start capacitor can be replaced as well. Did not see that part in the Whirlpool diagrams. Could it be that start capacitor and can that part be order by itself?


Or could it be the compressor?
I checked the compressor for continuity. Start to run was 10 ohms, Common to Run was 4, Common to start was 6.

Below is the part number for the capacitor.

Part number: AP4301401

Part number: AP4301401


It sure could be the compressor, ohms readings don't always tell the whole story. If the relay, overload and cap don't solve it then you're more then likely looking at the comp being the problem.

Replaced all of the above and it works for awhile and 3 hrs later the clicking starts.

Is it worth putting another $200 to $300 in a 10 year refrigerator. Is the compressor the main expense? How can I check the compressor?

There are test cords you can purchase to do a direct check, but with what you've done, I think that would be a waste. Compressors lock up, it's not uncommon.

Of course this is only my opinion but I'd think hard about putting a comp in a 10 yr old unit. From what I hear these days, you can figure anywhere between $400 to $600 for the complete job. It depends on the servicer, and the area you live in.

Thanks for your help and I to am hesitant that about putting more money into it. Defrost timer last year now this. We only paid $580 for it new. Then again...in 10 years I will be having the same issues.
