Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker

1 Answer

Whirlpool Model WBM39LW - we just had an electrical storm and lightning very close by which turned off the power, but is now back on. When you open either door, the alarms sound and lights flash. would could be the problem? I can hear what sounds like motors running but don't think it is working properly.

    There must have been a problem with supply as later on the power went off again and then on again after a few minutes and we noticed one side of our street was blacked out before that. We checked frig regularly and realised it was ok after power came back on.
    Thanks!

Freezer not freezing


Sorry about the lightning storm that could be related. If the fridge side is still working then the compressor is still working that is the good news for the freezer to work you need a fan. The next thing to do is open the freezer door and hold the switch so the freezer thinks the door is closed. There should be a fan running. if the fan is running and blowing hot air. you will need a tech. If you do not hear a fan then start removing shelves and then the covers at the back wall of the freezer. when you find the fan you will need a tester to see if it has power. if it has power but will not turn replace it. Removing the covers will also give you a chance to see if the coils are cold. if they are good if they are hot not good. By coils I am talking about the ones inside not the ones out side (which need to be cleaned once a year).
Best of luck

Had a lightning storm,now brand new aircon wont restart,remote is ok


The electrical storm may have caused a power surge and burned out the circuit board. Especially, if the power went out briefly and then came right back on. Most manufacturers recommend turning the unit OFF during a power outage/electrical storm.

Hope this helps you.

HI. the storm has caused an electrical surge that traveled through the home wiring system and, the Oven control received the hit in this case. it is damaged at this point, and it should be replaced asap, if possible. this code represents a major control breakdown. the board is ruined.

replace it asap.
