I have a whirlpool custom series frig & the bulb has gone out. After switching it with 2 new bulbs with no results, I wonder if there is an electrical problem? Additionally, what appears to me to be...


Yes KariAnn,
I have replaced 3 of these this week already, its the control box,lower left corner inside white plastic box, when light bulbs blow out it surges& the control board is ruined, its quite common, replace it with a new board no need to replace the cover or box with a new one, go to appliance parts pros or call 1-877-477-7278, the cost will be about $85.00 with shipping included, UNPLUG REFRIGE FIRST, and remove control board(2screws) on back of refrige, take off plastic cover and unplug 3 wire harnesses and install new board put cover back on and its good to go......if you have any other questions I'm at dmftrucker@yahoo or 24/7 Appliance Service (608)214-5632....Regards Daniel

Our 4 year old GE side by side frig suddenly warmed to 64 degrees. Freezer stopped freezing and is at 43. Motor is running.


Really need to know what motor(s) are running (compressor, evap fan inside freezer compartment, condenser fan under fridge)?? Of course, check your temperature (thermostat) settings. Side-by-sides usually have 2 of them. They should be labled for refridgerator and freezer. The freezer control usually only opens a baffle from the freezer compartment to the refridge compartment. The refrigerator temp control is the one that controls the compressor on-off cycles and the temp of refrig compartment (this keeps the refrig compartment from freezing the milk and cokes) If the freezer control/baffle is set too far open, this will cause the refrig temp control to shut off too soon for the freezer temp to get low enough. These controls can get bumped out of the correct setting accidently from time to time.
To check the following, the fridge has to be running, or in a condition where it "should be" running: If compressor is running (condenser fan should be too), check if evaporator fan (inside freezer) is running. Open (freezer) door and hold door light switch in when you check evaporator fan operation (some fans stop when door is open) If it is not running you may have a bad evaporator fan motor. It could also be a bad defrost timer, causing the evaporator (also inside back of freezer) to ice-up. This blocks the air flow over evap. Also, there is a defrost terminator switch on the evaporator coil that stops the defrost cycle when coil is clear of ice/frost (but timer hasn't ended defrost cycle). If it is defective, that could also keep the fridge from going into the defrost cycle, or taking it out too soon. If it is the timer, change the defrost terminator as well. Depending on how handy you are, you may be able to check/change any of these parts yourself. If you don't know much about elecrical stuff, you should leave it to a repair tech. Hope this helps.

"how back up light works buick regal 2000"


Could be in the shifter switch linkage. Regals have a wiring harness that sometimes give strange problems, check the area near the right trunk support piston (open the trunk) . Harness runs along top right edge of trunk. Pull back the wiring harness plastic shield and check for broken wires. I have seen that area cause problems with the dash and turn signals also.

Refrigerator is not working


If you open the refrig door and the light comes on you have power.

Most likely the defrost timer has stopped working.

The timer is often located inside the refrigerator part of the unit, or under the remove-able face on the bottom of the frig.

You can manually advance the timer with a screw driver or a coin. The place that you advance the timer is a round object in the middle of the face of the timer. You must rotate this part of the timer. The design is such that you can only rotate the timer in one direction.

If you rotate this and the compressor motor begin to work then you can be sure the problem is the timer motor. Sometimes the wire breaks off the contacts that run the little motor inside the timer.

You can buy a new one and replace this quickly.

Do replace the timer if rotating the compressor starts. Rotating the timer is not a fix, it is only a test. The timer is designed to defrost the refrig Failure to have a defrost cycle is bad.

Refrig compressor "knocks" when cycling off


could be a broken spring inside the compressor and would only make a noise as the compressor stops. nothing you can do about it. you would need to break open the compressor, replace the spring, weld it back, then charge it up again with refrigerant.
