my whirlpool side by side fridge will run then turn off. stays off long enough for ice in door of freezer to start melting. i have been taping the side of it to make it come back on. we replaced the defrost timer & it still is doing it.

I am having what sounds like the exact same problem. My unit shuts off about every four hours and I have to bang on the side to get it to come back on.

Thanks Simon. I'll get mine ordered asap. Can you help me understand why banging on the side of the unit makes it work when this piece is deffective? Also, is this something that will be simple for a layman to install?

The banging shakes the control and close the contacts.To replace the control you need a 1/4"nut driver and basic skills.
