Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Bulb does not light on refrig side. When it happened it popped out the two control knobs. Reset control knobs and replaced bulb but the bulb will not light. After resetting the knobs the refrigerator started cooling again. Manual does not show any fuses, so I'm not sure what to try next. Whirlpool GD5SHAXNS00 side by side.

    Have you made sure the light bulb is still good. Sometimes when the light bulb gets bumped around the filaments break.

I would alssume(knowing about this refrig) that the leectronic control board hasgone bad. the board is located behind the unit next to the compressor, inside a white housing, if you rmeove this board yull probably see a "burn" on one or more ofthe resistors, this is what controls the lighting in refrig sect, not affecting the cooling but only lights

Try unplugging refrig for a few min , then plugging back in . This will reset the adaptive timer and at least get the refrig working . The adaptive timer , is located in the control panel .

You should now have access to the board .
