Whirlpool Refrigerator WBM46LS

When anyone opens the door of the fridge, it just starts beeping continually all the time. We were told to purchase a new Interface Board, but, this didn't work. What can I do, I am at my wit's end. This started a few weeks ago.

SOURCE: door alarm keeps sounding even though doors aren't ajar

ginad, L&G missed the tolerance a little on the door switch. They do make a kit to correct the problem, I believe it's a little gasket that fits under the door switch. I use a plastic stick on, on the door itself, to solve the problem. As long as it's under warranty have the replair co. fix it. In the meantime just use a piece of tape to cover the door switch.....Catriver...post back

SOURCE: refrigerator compartment not cooling

If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.

It has a plugged defrost drain. You may need to defrost for 24 hours with unit unplugged and doors open. UNPLUG FIRST!! f still leaks, you need to remove floor of freezer, then the back wall of freezer. Remove ice. At center rear under coils is the drain hole that is plugged up. Use hair dryer to melt ice. Pour hot water in this area to uncover drain. With hot water in area, you can put a 1/4 diam. hose or copper pipe in drain and blow into it while pressing down. It will slowly go through ice, clearing drain.

SOURCE: door alarm keeps sounding even though doors aren't ajar

The problem is the doorswitch of the freezer door. The door 'bump' which has to push in the swich doesn't push it in far enough. You can try and hold the switch an dpush it in with your finger and see if the sound continues. You can try to adjust the door, but easier is to glue or tape something to the door 'bump' so it pushes the switch further in. Hope this was the issue.

Beeping


Thunder storms can cause control boards to go erratic. Try unplugging the refrigerator for a minute or two and after plugging it back in hopefully the problem will go away.

Depending on which two numbers after the ET1FHTXM may make a difference. For example ET1FHTXM00 the only thing that may cause a beep or cut the refrigerator (that I know of) on or off would be=> Circuit Board or Timer 2213473 This is a ADC adaptive defrost control and when they go bad strange things happen.Click Here=>

My whirlpool refrigerator beeps continuosly when i open the door, the light flashers also & the motor sounds like it stops & starts also. What is the problem?


Hello All.
I would like to add my findings.
My fridge WBM46LS of 11 years started behaving exactly as the OP described. I tried all the suggestions regarding holding buttons, power off etc to no avail.
I even found an online manual here
https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/view/18647891/whirlpool-uk-refrigerator-models-wbm35lw-wbm35ls-/5
But that did not address the problem at all.
So I went back to someones suggestion about the Potency Module.
I pulled the fridge out and unscrewed the cover at the bottom left to get access to the Potency module.(Red plastic box)
Without even pulling it open I could smell the burnt electronics.
I opened up the case and found a scorch mark next to the big capacitor on the circuit board.
So far, so good.
Given that a new fridge of the same size/style is about $1300 I pursued the spare part.
I then tracked down a supplier in Melbourne with a new board/module for $148.50. P# WPP326020913
Plugged in the new board in and fired up the fridge and its working just like new.
So I am happy now that a perfectly good fridge is up and working again.

Hello,


Sounds like you have a bad door switch. Depending on the age of the fridge, it might still be under warranty. If it's not, then you might be able to access the door switch yourself and pull it out & replace it.


Good luck......

Fridge turns on and off and beeps


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.
