Had similar problem on KitchenAid KSRA25ILSS side-by-side, only the whole controls stopped responding (i.e. fridge/freezer got warm). Pulled the plug and reset the controller and is now running OK (knock on wood). Saved $70 service far.

Re: Whirlpool Refrig Side by side

The problem is almost certainly in the controller or its power supply. Try pulling the plug for a minute or two - for some reason the display portion of the controller may have been sent out to lunch by a power surge or alpha particle. It woudn't be the first time. Check for bad connections between the display panel and the power supply and solder joints on the controller board. With everything else operational, a bad microcontroller chip is not that likely but is still a possibility. Good luck

Compressor on refrig/freezer not working, fan next to compressor stopped working also.

Sounds like you need to replace the thermostat which is located behind the refrig control knob . Tap on the knob and if the refrig starts , replace the control behind the knob .

All the lights in the freezer are working. None of the lights in the refrigerator are working. All the bulbs have been changed. Is there a fuse in the refrigerator that would make the lights go out?

In your model , the refrig section light , gets its' power from the control board . When the lights stop working , so will the light for the temp adjustment display . The control board is located behind the refrig , at the bottom , on the left side , inside a white box . It is held on by 2 screws . The part costs around $ 80.00 , and is easily replaceable .

you need a new control panel, if your light bulbs blow out it surges the control board and ruins the control board and your symptoms of no lights and temp control points to the control board

Whirlpool side by side Ice maker has quite making ice

Open the freezer door and on the right side , make dure the slide is in the on position . If the red light flashes twice , then pauses , flashes twice , pauses , consistently , then close the flap door on the left side of the freezer . The light should go off . If these tests work , then the cut-off optics are good , and the icemaker needs replaced , due to the cubes not dumping . Also check the coils under the front of the refrig , to make sure they are clean of dust , lint , etc.

i would alssume(knowing about this refrig) that the leectronic control board hasgone bad. the board is located behind the unit next to the compressor, inside a white housing, if you rmeove this board yull probably see a "burn" on one or more ofthe resistors, this is what controls the lighting in refrig sect, not affecting the cooling but only lights
