Question about Whirlpool ARC4030 Stainless Steel Top Freezer Refrigerator
Our bulb went in freezer section, then alarm and flashing neons appear several times a day - even after replacing bulb, and now freezer section keeps warming up (dare not put freezer food in it) but fridge seems to be ok. Turned it all off for 1 hour but problem still persists, fans and all lights flash when doors open.
Has anybody got this same problem - or do you know the solution?
please help - its about 3 years old and no warranty
You need a tech to check the problem, it seems to be some kind of electrical short or, if the fridge has an electronic control module, it may be the source of the proble.

Had the identical symptoms with my Whirlpool Gold GS6SHEXNB00 side-by-side refrigerator. Had a technician come on site, indicated it was the "circuit board/ timer" (Whirlpool part # 1394052). Board is accessible from behind fridge (lower left side in a white plastic housing to left of compressor).
Swapped the board out (noticed a scorched circuit on the old circuit board). Lightbulbs now work, temperature readouts also good to go.

Check the compressor with a volt meter, if the compressor is getting proper voltage then check the relay. But this sounds like a problem with the compressor
