My Whirlpool Fridge Freezer has Whirl pooled down the drain. Suddenly the freezer will not stay cold & the Fridge is down also. I checked what I could & the only observation I could make is that the Compressor-Condenser tank (not sure what you call it-but it's the small black tank part) is short cycling for on about a minute & off for about three then back on again, etc. The cooling fan is constantly running I assume due to heat generated.
I see what appears to be a black relay & electrical connection attached to the tank. That's the part that is clicking on & off. At this point I'm thinking either a bad relay, a tank that has lost its Freon or whatever its charged with or some type of thermostat that has failed. Anyone ever have this kind of a failure. I see big bucks ahead. This darn thing is only three years old this March. Is this something I can throw some parts at & get it going or do I need the repair guy. Thanks.
