Bought a stainless whirlpool refrigerator about a month ago, just set up, plugged it in. The lights, back fan everything will power up. The compressor will run, but stop after 10 seconds.
It will run for 10 seconds, stop for 10 seconds routine. Also the refrigerator is still new, i got it for a good price, thinking it shouldn't be much to fix. Model # GB9FHDXWS04

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance! Joe

Call for warranty service

Bought a stainless whirlpool refrigerator about a month ago
If the appliance is less than a year old it should be under warranty in which case you should call for warranty service and not work on it yourself which could void the warranty.

Does the condenser fan run constantly when the compressor is trying to start or does the fan cycle on and off too?

Yes the fan stays on. I've checked the compressor for conductivity. It seemed fine, no shortages. Could it be a faulty relay?
