Noises Whirlpool GC5SHEXN

    sorry, I hit enter prior to submitting full description.
    Here's full problem.

    Very faint beeping noise about once a minute yet not always on

    Bought brand new Whirlpool GC5SHEXNB05 Counter Depth GE Gold refrig back around December. The water filter ran out after 6 months and changed to red. At the same time the refrig started making a strange noise inside it like a faint beep but not really a beep. More like a blip sound or clip with an audible high tone. It happens sometimes a few times in a row and at other times it's about once a minute. It doesn't always do it.
    After replacing the water filter I reset the button so it turned back to green.
    What would cause this crazy audible blip noise that is obviously not any type of alarm?
    Thanks

Now this is a broad complaint!! LOL! Where do we start? What does the noise sound like? If it sounds like a bird chirping, it's your evap fan motor. If it sounds like somethings hitting the fan blade, your unit's frozen up with ice and needs to defrosted COMPLETELY and a new defrost system replaced. Call us and we'll be sure to ge the right parts out to you right away asap so you can get this unit back up and running again! We look forward to hearing from you and hope to be able to work with you more.

I have a Whirlpool GC5SHEXNS00 side-by-side refrigerator that has stopped cooling. For quite some time the center column was hot to the touch, but it maintained the ability to cool. Now it no longer cools...


If the center wall was hot then your defrost heater was stuck on, now with no cooling it could be you burnt out the compressor or the main board could be fried. Not good either way, it might be time for a new one. Sorry

The middle of the refrigerator between the (2) side by side doors is burning hot. I vacuumed the coils underneath and that didn't help.


Behind the fridge , the motor which cools the compressor , is not turning . Either something is blocking the fan blade , or the motor is bad .

Whirlpool GC5SHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator burning smell


How long had it been plugged in when you started to smell the burn. What kind of burn do you smell, is it an electrical burning smell or a smoldering dust burning smell.

Water Dispensing System


Check that the dispenser is not locked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser levers and control buttons. The lock button is on the dispenser front cover. This feature controls unintentional dispensing during cleaning. Press the "Unlock" or "Locked" button to reactivate the dispenser levers and allow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for 2 to 3 seconds.
