My ~1 year old (edit: 1yr 3months, so past warranty) Whirlpool bottom freezer fridge has stopped cooling. These are the things I've checked...I let it warm up for a while and then ran it overnight.
- Compressor is running (making sound/vibration), and after running overnight the body gets to about 130F, tubing to about 100F.
- Evap and condensor fans both running
- Evap and condensor coils are both at room temperature.
Since the compressor's "running" I thought that the problem would have to be be a freon leak, but with such a new fridge that seemed so unlikely? It hasn't been moved or messed with so no chance of accidentally puncturing something.
But then I read here that a normal temperature for a fridge compressor is 300F. If that's the case, is it possible that the compressor start relay is faulty and somehow the compressor is in the wrong "state?"
