No Lights On my Whirlpool Side-by-Side GS2SHAXNT00, the lights on refrigator side are bairly flickering (mostly dark) and it sounds like the a transformer is grinding in the back of where the two lower lights are located. The lights on the control center are also out. It sounds like the compressor is working everything is staying cold. Thanks, Rory

My wife opened the refrig. door and saw a blue flash now all the lights in the refrig side are out and the temp gage indicator lights are out as well.


Blue flash sounds like an electrical short (spark) that blew a fuse or tripped a breaker.
Is the machine running? You need to unplug and check the switch that turns the light on and the lamp socket itself for frayed or broken wires befoe restting breaker or replacing fuse. Once your electrical problem is resolved you can reapply power

Side by side sub zero refrigerator: freezer is


still not clear. in your question you say refrig side is dark and not running, then you say you put a temp guage in it overnight and it's steady. So you DO have cooling in refrig? If it's just the lights, yes it could the switch or it could be the light bulbs.

Light in refrig not working & blue indicator lights out also. Pulled switch & lights still out if I jump the leads. Is there a reset botton.


your motherboard in the lower rear area of the unit is bad,if you have recently replaced burned out lights in the refrige when these lights burn out it causes a surge on this control board and burns the circuit trace,hint:if you hear a rapid clicking noise in this area of the motherboard its a relay trying to latch,a bad board wont let it latch and the lights will dimly flash in the refrige compartment and the digital read-out may be out too

your  problem on this is the main control in the compressor compartment. unplug your refrig then remove this control unplug all connectors and reconnect. this will probably get you working temporarily In almost every case I've seen we ended up replacing the control board. thx peyton

Whirlpool refrig side by side


flickering noises??? are they working at all. or are tehy flickering on/off along with the noiise. id be willling to bet that if you removed the back panel from behind the refrig, youll find a control board mounted on the left side(when lookin at from behind) alongside the compresssor assy in a white box. if thats the case that, that there is a board there and your lights are not functioning and you hear "chattering" when the doors open you have a faulty board, look up via model number and replace it
