SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: The appliance interior lights works but it's not cooling or freezing

The compresser could fail yes, but you could also have an open circuit. If the contacts in the thermostat got corroded, or the starter relay, it may simply not be told to turn on. It may be time for a technician to measure continuity in the circuit.

SOURCE: GE Side by Side Refrigerator Not Cooling but Freezer is working

This is a good indication of a failed fan.
The freezer compartment gets first crack at the compressed coolant and a fan distributes some cooled air to the refrigerator side. When the fan fails, the fridge suffers.
Sears parts department has thousands of illustrated breakdowns of many appliances and if yours is one of them, you can see the location of the fan for DIY purposes and often how to access it.
They also have (for listed appliances) the mfr.'s part number and the failed part can often be ordered right from the page on which it is displayed.
Sears Parts Direct
If you can ferret out the part number, you might check listings in your area for Johnstone Supply which supplies trades people with a huge variety of replacement parts and the prices are often 40-60 under dealer prices for the same items and have never turned me away as a non-professional DIY person.

Light bulbs are flashing with constant pulsing noise


It sounds like you have a lose connection for the lighting. It may be at the light bulb socket or even at the door switch. It also could be a lose wire going to or from these items. with a little detective work you should be able the bad connection.
I hope this helps :)

Light flickers in refrigerator


Yor refrigerator has a control board in 2 places. I would like to to unplug and pull the refrigerator away from the wall. Behind the cover where the compressor is located there is a circuit board. Take the cover off and examine the board for burn marks and loose solder connection. Let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool refrig side by side


flickering noises??? are they working at all. or are tehy flickering on/off along with the noiise. id be willling to bet that if you removed the back panel from behind the refrig, youll find a control board mounted on the left side(when lookin at from behind) alongside the compresssor assy in a white box. if thats the case that, that there is a board there and your lights are not functioning and you hear "chattering" when the doors open you have a faulty board, look up via model number and replace it

Whirlpool Side By Side GD5RHAXNQ00-Electrical Issue


The arcing noise is just that, a loose connection causing electricity to arc from one place to another. this is initiated by opening the door and closing the light switch. The small glow is from a small amount of voltage reaching the bulb. If you are inclined, repair it. remove the cover, look for the burnt wire or connection. If its a removable part, replace it. If not clean it up and/or make a new connection. One thing is for sure, it will not get any better and may get worse and burn up something more critical.
