Customer Question
Fridge compressor seems dead...

Fridge compressor seems dead. Lights inside work OK. How can I reset compressor?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

Whirlpool G15HSAXVY model number. Bought June 2009.

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

Maybe, if easy. It is late on Friday night.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Working fine until this eve. I got home about 1 hour ago and no cooling, but was OK this morning.
