Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

Whirlpool Ref shuts down

I bought a used Whirlpool Gold Ref. Model # GD5RHAXNT00 SERIAL # SR1428008 Mnf date 4/04.  I bought this unit and transported it about 250 miles  on its side.  I supported the compressor and allowed it to stand up right for 48 hours before it was plugged in.  It was on its side about 20 hours.  The unit worked fine when plugged in but after about two days, it quit working.  I called a local service man who consulted with his link and it was determined that the main board was bad.  It was replaced and everything worked fine for a few days until it died again.  When it dies, the lights are out on the ref side but burn on the freezer side, the ice melts out of the freezer, the ref warms up etc.  All it takes to get it going again is to unplug it and plug it right back in.

Hello Margaret Gulan! We are terribly sorry to hear of your concern with your Whirlpool Oven. You may reset the Oven by disconnecting the power for a complete minute. Either by the plug or shutting off at the breaker in the home. If that does not resolve the issue then please respond back to this email address Whirlpool_Reviews@Whirlpool.com with your name, reviewer id (Margaret Gulan), phone number, street address, zip code, model & serial number, and date of purchase on the appliance. We would be happy to assist you. We look forward to your reply.

I have a Whirlpool side -by- side 25 cu.ft. want to know about what age it is?


Hi.

It depends on the model number. Whirlpool started building 25 cu.ft over ten years ago and the model is still being produced. Please find the serial and number printed on the refrigerator service tag and give us the complete model number along with serial number. The model number will tell us the initial date of production, the serial number tells us the date of production of the specific unit. Here whirlpool date codes explained. To find the service tag check in locations illustrated below.

My whirlpool side by side is getting warmer. Freezer was up to 45 F yesterday, today 55 F, Refrigerator getting warmer too. Fan on freezer and refrigerator vents blowing, but isn't that cool. What's...


check and clean the condenser coil under the ref , remove the back to the ref if the compressor is real hot you need to put a fan behind the ref for a couple of hours until the compressor cools down then plug it back in.

Whirlpool icemaker


your refrigerator relies on a emitter and receiver control board to tell it when to turn on and off. this could be the problem. the guy at fixitnow.com sums it up best
  • What are the manufacturers thinking when they put out this overblown garbage? It’s as though they had a bunch of electrical engineers sitting around one day and said, “Oh, I know! Let’s design an icemaker that uses a bunch of flimsy, expensive electronics to replace a function that could be done more reliably and less expensively by a simple mechanical feeler arm!” Brilliant.

this site has some good info on the subject of diagnosing these boards. 28c3a51.jpg
