Default Freezer on Fridge Not Working (Clicking)

I have a less than year old Whirlpool model w10806896a Fridge/freezer combo.

This thing started making a clicking and not cooling in the freezer portion anymore.

Any ideas or anyone have history with this?

Luckily I bought the warranty but who knows how long thatíll take to get situated tomorrow.

Seems like I had something similar for my freezer and I think it had something to do with the defrost timer or something with the defrost function.

We purchased a new Maytag and had it less than a year. Due to bad engineering design Maytag had our unit servised 4 times changing the controller 3 times. At the final stage the system was freezing up due to an additional Freon leak. The bad design comes from how they place the controller in the internal cooled lower box area. They returned our purchase price and we bought a new different model.

It's amazing how history repeates itself. From my understanding and from the one we purchased. Since the industry is in a transition period for the Freon used. Today's new referigant will R600A. That folks is Isobutane. It's not the Butane that concerns me it's the use of connectors they have chosen. Slip or sharkbite like connectors to prevent dis similar metal corrision is the issue. Long story short with the connectors if one begins to smell the Butane for sure one could expect a leak. And the controller remains in the cooled damp environment. Bad designs all around just my $.02 worth.

Appliances today are not made to last. 5 years max then get a new one. I bought a new Frigidaire that would not cool right out of the box. Took a months to get a replacement.

I think part of the problem is all the electronics in appliances now, people love bells and whistles. I still buy the most basic ones, so i can work on them when there is an issue. I get way more than 5 years out of them

The clicking sounds like a relay on the compressor . May be the relay on the back attached to compressor. If the relay is bad the compressor will not come on

This ^^^^^

Pull the back lower cover off and see if the compressor is running. Very common problem for that relay to go bad.

This^^^ If you hear the click (for the compressor to come on) and the compressor does not come on then it is most likely a relay.

Don't void the warranty by working on it yourself. The warranty should cover any food loss.
