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!

Why won't freezer light come on?


Could be a dead bulb. Or if you have tried that, the lamp holder could be broken or have a broken wire to the light is not getting any power to it. Would have to pull it apart to check the lamp holder.

REPLACE LIGHT IN FRIDGE


Hi,
- Unplug the refrigerator from the electrical outlet.
- Locate the bulb on the inside of the refrigerator.

- Remove the light cover. Usually these just snap off, but, on some models, they may need to be unscrewed. Use your screwdriver to unscrew the light cover retaining screws (if required).
- Unscrew the old light bulb.

- Screw in the new light bulb.

- Replace the light cover. Plug the refrigerator back in. Test your new light bulb.

Hope this helps, please rate if the solution was helpful, thanks!

Ref light bulbs wh-pool GS5SHA


Your refrigerator has two sets of electronic control boards. One is inside and works to adjust temperature and to communicate with the other below and behind the refrigerator. They both have relays that if bad could cause the sounds you hear. It would be ok to pull it away from the wall and open bottom cover and listen to see if the sound is coming from the lower control board. If yes we need to examine the board after unplugging the power to refrigerator. let me know if the board is the reason or if while there you find something different, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Inside refrigerator light


did you try replacing the bulb? The bulb could have been bad from the beginning, and if the door was never opened before being installed in your home, that would be the simplest answer.

BUZZING NOISE ON WHIRLPOOL GOLD FRIDGE/FREEZER


YOU MAY HAVE A BAD LIGHT BULB, SOCKET OR LIGHT SWITCH. TRY WIGGLING THE SWITCH TO SEE IF THERE IS ANY CHANGE IN THE BULB INTENSITY. IF NO CHANGE, TRY REPLACING THE LIGHT BULB. IF NO CHANGE, THE SOCKET NEEDS REPLACED.
