funny you asked this question i just had this same problem this week at a customers home. you need the electronic control board located in the compressor compartment behind the refrig. it is mounted in the white box on the left hand rear corner. the whirlpool part number is 2304095 and it is around 175.00 i'm not sure who a local part supplier around you would be if all else fails you could get thru sears..

SOURCE: Sub Zero 690 replaced lights but fan and lights dont work

The fan will only run when the compressor is running. Check it a couple of times to see if it actually is not going on. There is alos a light terminator located behind the fan cover. We will assume it is the light switch. For the light switch go to http://subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=Zip%20Code. This will take you to a locator to find the authorized parts distributor for your area I believe the part number for the light switch is 3060140 have them check it using your model and serial number. Once you have the part remove the three phillips head screws that hold the grill in place, this is assuming you don't have the louvered grill. You access these inside the fresh food and freezer compartments. With the door open you look up in to the metal you will be able to see them. Once you get the grill off there is a grey power cord with a white quick connect disconjnect this or turn the power off at the circuit breaker. You will be working on live electricity if you don't.Not good for your life expectancy. There is one more phillips head screw for the cover of the two switches. The light switch has a white back and the fan switch has a black one. Remove the two wires then push it down and slip the new one in. Replace all that you took off. While you have the grill off vacuum the condensor. If this is too much the link above also is for authorized service in your area.

your  problem on this is the main control in the compressor compartment. unplug your refrig then remove this control unplug all connectors and reconnect. this will probably get you working temporarily In almost every case I've seen we ended up replacing the control board. thx peyton

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

How do I replace cold control on a whirlpool refrigerator


These are not to hard to replace. You will need to gain access to the control panel to change this part. Once inside there are tabs and wires that will need to be removed.
Here is a diagram of the control panel.

Water dispenser will not shut off


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Most likely the water dispense switch has failed or the actuator for the switch is bent. In either case the remedy is to replace the switch. There could be a shorted wire in the door but it would be the least probable failure.
The failed switch will be item 14 of this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=265471&diagram_id=127274#d127274

Here is a manual to assist you:

See page 23 to gain access to the switches. The water dispensor switch will be on the right.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How to repair the ice dispenser door on a whirlpool refrigerator


If you will look on the bottom of the dispenser cover you will see 2 notches on the left and right side. carefully pry the cover off using a flat tip screw driver. then you will see a white switch plate that is either held on with latches or 2 srews depending on model. once this is removed you will gain access to the dispenser door. 
once you gain access I think you will find the hinges for the dispenser door are broken off. if so you will need a dispenser door repair kit form whirlpool part # 8201756 this kit includes new door and hinge repair kit. this is something you can do yourself if you are pateint and pay lose attention to detail. otherwise I would recomend a god servie company. thanks for using FixYa Peyton
