Refrigerater light not working on whirlpool gold


Turn power off, remove bulb and use a battery and piece of wire to check if it works OR use a circuit tester to check if there's any electrical resistance (if yes, bulb is shot and needs replacing) otherwise replace bulb and turn power back on.
Does the light normally come on when the door's opened? If it does then there's a switch that opening the door MUST operate. Find it, and with the door open, operate the switch. The light should turn on &off. Clean the switch - often fail with time and a buildup of gunge.

Refrigerater door won't close because lightswitch stays extended in on position. Door switch doesn't have food nor debris on it to prevent it from being pushed in when door tries to close.


I'd remove the light switch. IT should pop out of the side. You should unplug the refrigerator first, pry switch out. Tape up terminals. Push wires into hole where you can still reach them. Plug back in and be sure door closes. If all that works, buy a new switch and re-install

Food (vegetables, fruits) on the refrigerater side freezing


Your model has a control damper inside the vent. The damper opens and closes with changes in temperature. It has a pig tail spiral thermostat on the side and if it goes bad the door sticks open or closed. Sometimes it is just frost but you will need to get to it. I will send photos and links in a moment, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a ge gss22kgpacc side by side, the freezer is working, lights, etc. all working, but the refrigeratoe side is not working, any insight? thanks, mike


on most units they have two controls refrigerator control is electric t-stat that runs compressor freezer control think of it as a door colder freezer door is barely open warmer freezer door all the way open all cooling coils are in the freezer and a fan moves the air to refrigerater side possible problem fan not running
door freezer control all the way closed
light switch broken light staying on door gasket not sealing tight find door switch press verify light shuts off and fan starts
look for torn or damaged door gasket can look from outside with light and see if gasket contacts case on all four sides
freezer is cold enough so compressor is ok hope this helps good luck ron

Light on inside of refrigerater works sometimes. it just goes off sometimes for days then it will come back on


Sometimes light is used as a heater function in the appliance inorder to keep temperatures stable.
But it is also possible that your door switch is not functioning correctly.If you suffer from bad performance this can be the reason.

Jenn-air side by side refrigerater


Make sure the fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall.(5 to 7 screws) If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation .Also if you can move everything out unplug it w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes.Turn it to 4 or 5. Good luck.Let me know.

MY Maytag Wide by Side freezes in the produce drawers.


When a unit freezes in the lower drawers this is usually due to a thermistor which is not functioning properly. If you can provide your model number I can try to locate your schematic to your unit showing the thermistor that you would replace to alleviate this issue. I will await your reply as to the complete model number of your unit.
p.s if you had ice up the top of the unit as well then you would look at the damper door otherwise known as the diffuser door in some units or the control for the door as the problem area in your unit.
Thank you,
Rick
