I had the same problem. There is a main controller board at the bottm of the refrigerator near the back by the compressor motor. One of the components on the board shorted out and the board had to be replaced. Total cost about $150.

Light blinks off and on when door is open


If you mean that the freezer cabinet light flashes check the lamp fitting and ensure the bulb is fully tightened, they have a habit of becoming loose with the expansion and contraction of the fitting/bulb as the freezer compartment cools with the door shut and the bulb warms when the door is open.

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 :)

Ref light bulbs wh-pool GS5SHA


Your refrigerator has two sets of electronic control boards. One is inside and works to adjust temperature and to communicate with the other below and behind the refrigerator. They both have relays that if bad could cause the sounds you hear. It would be ok to pull it away from the wall and open bottom cover and listen to see if the sound is coming from the lower control board. If yes we need to examine the board after unplugging the power to refrigerator. let me know if the board is the reason or if while there you find something different, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ge profile buttom freezer cold refrigerator hot


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.

Now, why is that cold air not getting over to the Ref side?
1. The little door is not open.
check your control setting. You should be able to feel air coming through the channel on the Ref side.

2. The fan in the freezer is not working.
You can hear this fan running when you open the freezer.

3. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice which won't let the fan circulate the air over to the Ref side.
This is a failure of the defrost system.

Loud Buzzing Noise from Behind Freezer


Sounds like the freezer fan blade is hitting on a build up of ice or frost. You may have a defrost issue, or it may be a one time thing, like the door was open for a long time (object holding door partially open) or also check the ice dispenser duct door to make sure it is closing. Sometimes a chunk of ice hangs up in the ice shoot, allowing moist air to enter freezer, resulting in the extra frost / ice near the freezer fan. You might also check the door gaskets, especially the bottom side where sugary liquid spills might cause a gasket to tear. #2: Long run times: If cooling is good, don't worry. Older refrig's often ran less time, but used much more electricity than the newer refrig's, even though new one run longer. (Like having a 40 watt light bulb on for 20 hours a day uses less electricity than having a 100 watt bulb on for 10 hours a day)

BUZZING NOISE ON WHIRLPOOL GOLD FRIDGE/FREEZER


YOU MAY HAVE A BAD LIGHT BULB, SOCKET OR LIGHT SWITCH. TRY WIGGLING THE SWITCH TO SEE IF THERE IS ANY CHANGE IN THE BULB INTENSITY. IF NO CHANGE, TRY REPLACING THE LIGHT BULB. IF NO CHANGE, THE SOCKET NEEDS REPLACED.

Whirlpool gold fridge model GD5SHAXNSOO


Have you got a screw loose. One which holds the door light switch. is it the switch which buzzes?. I had a fridge which didn't get cold. When I scrapped it I found that the retaining ring for the switch was not tight enough and r4ealised that the light had been on when the door was closed.
