SOURCE: whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise

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.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Refrigerator Door Seal surface is HOT.

If the air flow on the condenser under the fridge is too low, the hot gas won't be cooled enough before it goes to the door jamb to stop condensation. Remove the plastic cover under the doors and look at the condenser (tube/wire thing underneath). If it is clogged with fluff, get a vacuum and nozzle and give it a good clean so the air can pass through. Other than that, your condenser fan may have stopped.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool side by side refrigerator model

you need to replace the main/board for sure located in the lower rear left hand wall of the unit in a plastic case, it will have 3 wire harnesses unplug the unit,undo the plastic container and unplug the the board and there will be a burned spot on the case and burned trace on the circuit board, reason being,this is very common on any of these sideXsides,if a light blows out in the refrige compartment it puts a surge on the board and burns the circuit trace open,this makes the digital temp read-out go dark and if the lamps light at all they "strobe" dimly or not at all,and you will hear a clicking of the relays in the rear area trying to latch the light bulb circuitry, but cant because the main/mother-board is defective now

I have a Whirlpool ED5KVEXVQO2 Side by Side refrigerator. It is still very cold but making odd noises and smells like rotting oranges, mainly in freezer. Is this freon?


refrigerant doesn't smell much at all. remove all drawers, clean and defrost, rinse inside with sanitizer. you may find somethimg fallen where you can't see it normally. also check and clean outside as well, particularly around the compressor and condenser where it gets very hot.

GS6SHEXN500 fridge light and display on temp control flickers and sounds like relay making noise


The problem could be very well a relay that has the contacts pitted or weak causing the lighting in display and the interior lights to flicker. Here is a GS6SHEXNS00 Parts List and the relays I can see are in a covered control box near the compressor on page 17 and 18 on the parts list 2304056 Electronic Control I will be here if you should have any questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Red glow (from defrost heater?) at bottom of rear panel in freezer


This is from the GE Appliance "Knowledge Database" Web site:

Refrigerator - Explanation Of Red Glow

In a no frost refrigerator, the defrost timer activates defrost heaters in the evaporator section (rear of freezer) which heat up and melt the frost off the evaporator coils. This process lasts for approximately 25-45 minutes and usually happens up to twice a day.

During this time, there will be no running sounds, no fan noise, and you may hear water dripping or sizzling as it hits the heaters. On side by side models, you may even be able to see an orange glow at the bottom of the freezer.

This is normal.

Heating element in a refrigerator?


The orange glow you see is your defrost heater. Your refrigerator goes into the automatic defrost mode three times a day. This keeps the unit frost-free.
