Customer Question
I have a Wirlpool...

I have a Wirlpool fridge freezer Top and bottom purchased 2011. Light is on but compressor not going. Turn off at power point and turn back on and there is a clicking sound

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

2011 WRID41TW

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends on what the problem is

Hello, I am sorry nobody has gotten back to you yet. Are you still needing help with this?

The compressor relay may be bad or the main control PCB. Can you tell from where the click noise comes?
