Refrigerator not working
 
Hi all,
I have a Whirlpool S26S5DF SxS fridge which has stopped cooling on both the refrigerator and freezer sides. Power supply seems to be ok as the interior lights and control panel work, however the compressor, condenser fan and evaporator fan won't start up. When the power is turned on or off there's a clicking sound (relay maybe?) from the vicinity of the compressor but nothing starts.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

That is part of a full model#.

Even the partial model# won't come up for me online.

Check the wire diagram that comes with the unit to see what item(s) would/could effect all 3 systems together.
A compressors start relay could effect the compressor and condensor fan motor but normally would not effect the evaporator fan motor.
