I have a Whirlpool Side by side refrigerator model ED2KHAXVS03 that doesn't cool or freeze. It was running fine, then it wasn't. I have cleaned the condenser coils and fan runs smoothly. Changed the capacitor and relay, even changed the bimetal defrost switch. Ohm meter readings on the compressor are normal. LRA is 14.5 and running amps are 12.5. There is no dead short. The compressor hums and gets warm while running. There are no signs of oil.
There is a clicking noise from the compressor that can be heard when the compressor starts and then moments (30 seconds to a minute?)later when it shuts off. The interior fans run and the lights dim when then compressor kicks in. The evaporator coils don't get cold. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
