WHIRLPOOL SIDE BY SIDE MODEL GD5RHAXNQ00 ELECTRICAL ISSUE

Fridge lights are not working. Heard a poof sound. Followed yellow wire with red stripe to computer board. Did it burn out a resistor, and if so, should I change the whole board to correct the problem? Or is there another solution? The fridge is still working.

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling after storm


Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

The light and digital controls on the refrigerator side dont work


I replaced a circuit board that is in the white box at the lower left rear of the fridge. You will need to remove the cardboard cover, then there is two screws to loosen the box. The circuit board is inside. There is a white tab that sticks up push it sideways and it will pop right out. Put the plugs in the new board and pop it back in and put everything back together. Be sure the wires are routed so they do not contact the compressor.
If you want to test it first get a voltmeter one probe to CN1, the white wire, and the other to CN2, yellow wire with red stripe, there should be 120 volts. If not, or when the door is open it drops replace the board.
I did not have a voltmeter but it seems everybody that had a problem the fridge was 4 to 5 years old. So I bit the bullet, around $90.00, and replaced it and it works!

Whirlpool GD5RHAXNQ00 Ice maker not making ice


We had a similar problem and there was a broken/stripped gear in the icemaker. A&E replaced it to the tune of $150 or so. I don't recall exactly but I recall my husband thinking he could replace the entire icemaker for the price we paid to repair it. The gear make the ice tray flip out the ice once frozen. Good luck, hope that helps a little.

Whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise


I had the same problem. Model Number GS5SHAXNL00 Light wouldn't work on the fridge side and the led's wouldn't light up. Ended up being a blown circuit path on the control board.

Check the picture.f21d241.jpg

All I did was soder a wire between the 2 points that path was connecting and *BINGO* the lights are back on!

Hope this helps someone. To find the burned out spot just look for a little black smudge on the white plastic case when you remove the board.

Whirlpool Side By Side GD5RHAXNQ00-Electrical Issue


The arcing noise is just that, a loose connection causing electricity to arc from one place to another. this is initiated by opening the door and closing the light switch. The small glow is from a small amount of voltage reaching the bulb. If you are inclined, repair it. remove the cover, look for the burnt wire or connection. If its a removable part, replace it. If not clean it up and/or make a new connection. One thing is for sure, it will not get any better and may get worse and burn up something more critical.
