Question about Refrigerators
I have a Whirlpool WRF 401 IX fridge. It only runs on the first setting (one light) any other setting trips the motor and the lights start flashing. Has the PC board packed up and can I obtain one from Whirlpool as I'm told there are none available in South Africa

jsrock, if you can do some voltage checks we can help you with this board issue. The thing thats throwing me is the clicking you are hearing. On that board, on the bottom you have a three pronged harness that is blue. Should say J8, J9 and J4 which is line. Get some jumper wire with clips on each end and jump line to compressor, J4 and J8.(Rev1 boards was J11 and J8). You are now sending 120V directly to the compressor and if it is good, it should start and you can rule it out. After this, unplug the J2 connector from the board. Check for 12VDC, not AC, at pins J2-8 to J2-3. If you do not have that voltage, replace the main board. If you do have that voltage, you have a short in either the condensor fan motor or evap fan motor circuits. Carefull, you will be working around live juice here. Catriver...post back.

Before replacing the board, you should try replacing the starter relay on the compressor, presuming the clicking is coming from this area? The flashing could indicate that the fridge is out of setpoint temperature range and is an alarm to this fact. If the clicking is coming from the board area, it is a relay trying to come on. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Freezer light flashing
if you have ice built up on rear wall of freezer section then your unit is not going through defrost cycle which builds up frost on evaporator and restricts cold air flow over to the fresh food side.

Seems to be a problem with this fridge. Mine did the same for a couple of weeks (and I have a friend who also has one and it is doing the same) and now only runs on 1 light - useless. Have been told that the "PC" board needs replacing. No stock of the part. Never want to buy Whirlpool again!
