It sounds like you may failed to reconnect all / improperly connected one of the plug-in connectors after the repairs were made. You may have also dislodged one of the connectors during reassembly. Go back and double check the connectors - and make sure that you observed polarity when you replaced the capacitor. Most are clearly marked and reversing it is usually a "go / no go" deal as opposed to "close enough".

Good luck!

SOURCE: bulbs and bottom pcb blew, replaced but still not working

the start and run capacitors of the compressor can go short circuit and cause a big spike that can blow the bulbs, trip fuse etc. Inspect the capacitors for splits etc, you may well find that the start cap has blown and so there will not be enough current to get the compressor running.

SOURCE: Control pad flashing temp and all lights continuously and ice door continually cycles open and closed

Hi,
With the problems it is presenting, I would say it's very likely.
However it may take a bit of detective work to find which board is defective.

Check a part suppliers link Here for price comparison so you have some ideas.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

Magnavox 50ML8105D/17. We moved and the tv worked fine and now nothing. Just 2 red lights. Temp and Bulb. I replaced the bulb about 6 months ago. all I did was move.I carried it myself. I have checked and...


My magnavox died due to cheap capacitors on power supply board, a common problem for magnavox tv's from wot i found on net!
I replaced a 2200uf 10v electrolytic capacitor and it works now:)
My tv would take a few atempts to turn on and finally would not turn on,light stayed red!
i recommend visually checking for bulging or blown capacitors on power board, if it all looks good, try warming the board with a hair dryer, this might be just enough to get it to fire up, so at least u know the prob is in that area.
I looked for a 2200uf capacitor near the low voltage output from board n replaced it, got lucky first one, I was expecting to replace all the low voltage electrolytic capacitors.

Fridge and freezer stopped working.Power still on (light on in fridge). Digital control for fridge and freezer shows straight line no numbers. Any suggestions?


The double dashes in your display are for one of two reasons. First situation would be would be "you turned the unit off". Press the up arrow on the feezer or fresh food control until a 4 is in each display. Second, if the control is locked out, the board has been scrambled or failed possibly from a power surge. Unplug unit for 30 seconds, and plug it back in and try to set control's for "4". If controls are still locked out, the board (12868513) needs to be replaced.

Fridge lights are buzzing and flickering


You need to replace the electrical control board. It's an easy fix. About $75 for the part. No electrical work necessary. Just unclipping and re-clipping wires into their ports. You do not need a repairman to do this! (I'm a 33 yr. old female, so please forgive my lack of technical terms in the post) I ordered one from AppliancePartsPros.com. It came in two days.

1. Pull out and UNPLUG the fridge.
2. Take out the screws that hold the bottom back panel on
(The electrical contol panel is located inside a white box attached to the lower left corner. )
3. Remove the screws that hold the box in place
5. Remove the bunch of wires out of the clip on the side of the box and pull the box out. Open it by releasing the clips on either side.
6. Disconnect the three sections of wires that plug into the board
7. Remove old board out of the housing
8. Insert new board,
9. Reverse above steps to complete installation.

Note: What triggers the buzzing sound is the door being opened. If you want to stop the sound and prevent the electrical current from going to the fried board until your new one comes, put a piece of tape tightly over the switch that pops out when the door is opened (located inside the unit near the door hinge).

Disconnect the power cord (or switched power off) and wait an hour or two until compressor has cooled. When you now switch the power on, the clicking is heard only once and compressor starts (weak noice and vibration noticed). When compressor gets warmed, the compressor will stop and clicking starts again (clicking comes from electric circuits when compressor is switched off and on repeatedly, but it will not start because it has stucked - this is typical fault in old compressors said maintenance expert to me). Buy a new fridge.

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.

Whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise


I had the same problem. Model Number GS5SHAXNL00 Light wouldn't work on the fridge side and the led's wouldn't light up. Ended up being a blown circuit path on the control board.

Check the picture.f21d241.jpg

All I did was soder a wire between the 2 points that path was connecting and *BINGO* the lights are back on!

Hope this helps someone. To find the burned out spot just look for a little black smudge on the white plastic case when you remove the board.
