Hi. Your temperature control board display is bad. You may also have a power convertor board located next to the compressor. Normally you would replace the temperature control board first. I have a temperature control board listed on Ebay as item number 250211412492. Good luck, Mack

SOURCE: The light and digital controls on the refrigerator side dont work

I replaced a circuit board that is in the white box at the lower left rear of the fridge. You will need to remove the cardboard cover, then there is two screws to loosen the box. The circuit board is inside. There is a white tab that sticks up push it sideways and it will pop right out. Put the plugs in the new board and pop it back in and put everything back together. Be sure the wires are routed so they do not contact the compressor.
If you want to test it first get a voltmeter one probe to CN1, the white wire, and the other to CN2, yellow wire with red stripe, there should be 120 volts. If not, or when the door is open it drops replace the board.
I did not have a voltmeter but it seems everybody that had a problem the fridge was 4 to 5 years old. So I bit the bullet, around $90.00, and replaced it and it works!

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

The refrigerator light does not work. I cannot change temperature or settings


Hello,

If you find the lights in your refrigerator do not work, check for the power supply. You need to see if the refrigerator is plugged in properly. Also check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. See if there is any damage to the electrical cord and check the outlet voltage. check for the temperature control. If it is off, turn it on. Also, unplug the refrigerator and clean the condenser coils.
Troubleshoot the problem and if you do not find any of the above reasons as the cause of refrigerator not working, call the repairman.

Take care.

Model rs2534ww side-by-side Samsung frig. After power interuption to the home, interior lights work, but digital display is blank and compressor won't run. How do I fix this?


Regarding Samsung refrigerator model rs2534ww/xaa repair: Basic trouble-shooting from Fixya was helpful, but solution required service call from repairman. (Very few repairmen work on Samsung at this time.) We thought problem was the digital controller, but turned-out was ice maker (!). Repairman explained Samsung has wierd control design that is based upon ice maker sensor. Sensor alone cannot be replaced, required entire icer, which he had in the truck. Icer cost $105 retail ($86 online), but controller would have been $161 retail (couldn't find controller online). Hint: if control panel is "dead" except for (only) the upper (horizontal) LED segment of the right-most refrigerator temperature digit, the problem might be your ice-maker. If you find the ice maker online and can install it yourself, you can save at least $130.

The refrigerator side is not running or cooling.


In side by sides if the fridge side not working correctly it means that the air vent from the freezing unit has stuck in the closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be and if it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position. The vent is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up, which can be caused by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail. Best call a service engineer asap.

According to GE this uses a 40 Watt appliance bulb. You should be able to get one from any department or home improvement store.

Interior level indicator and interior lights not working on Whirlpool GD5RHAXNB00 Refrigerator.


The failed part on my unit was 2252189, the electric control board. This board is located on the left side of the refrigerator in the back next to the compressor. Its inside a plastic box on the side. That number has changed to a number WHIW10135090 and cost $84 from www.apdepot.com

A previous post listed a part number 2303805 as being the problem. That part number was the replacement number for the control board that is located in the control box inside the refrigerator. That part is NO LONGER AVAILABLE. It has been replaced by part 2255233 which is the entire control box. cost for that part is $161.00 from AP Depot. I purchased this part first and it was found to NOT be the problem.

I would suggest that anyone who has this problem start with the less expensive part 2252189 and them see if you need to spend more.

My unit worked fine with exception the the refigerator side interior lights and the digital display. Compressor and temperatures were fine. Just an FYI on my problem specifics.

KSRS22FGWHO4 INTERIOR LIGHT LOCATION


As I mentioned previously, I had previously tried a new bulb behind the control panel and it didn't work. I tried again, but first I unplugged the refrigerator, and then installed the new bulb. And when I plugged the refrigerator back in, the light worked!

I am not sure why unplugging the refrigerator before installing the new bulb worked, but it did.

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.
