Question about Whirlpool GS5SHAXN Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

No light in the refrigerator side

At the beginning, the light was flicker with strange sound, and then the light is gone. The bulb is ok. When I remove the bulb, the digital indicator is OK. After I put the bulb on, the numbers from the digital indicator is gone. The door switch seems ok.

The cooling system in both refrigerator and freezer are ok too.

Did you replace the bulb with one of the same voltage rating?

 

Seems strange that a new bulb should blow straight away, maybe it was faulty.

 

This sounds like a blown fuse.

I suspect the main control down by the compressor may be faulty. Without a model number I can't give you specific information, but these controls have a pretty high failure rate. The "knocking" you describe is likely the relay(s) chattering. The board controls every function on the refrigerator, including the turning on of the lights. Have someone screw the bulb in while you are behind the refrig listening down by the compressor area. The control is mounted to the LH side of the compressor in a plastic case.

Flickering light GE 48' side by side refrigerator


i had the same trouble .. in mine there is a plastic cover that slides off with some difficulty (slides toward the front) ... this exposes the light bulb which was simply loose ... its also possible to have a bad bulb but make sure you replace it with the same type and wattage ... observe how the plastic cover came off since its not obvious how it goes back on ..

Lights Out


maybe the bulb is not compatible with a frigde itself. It is not like a convential house bulb that you can plug it on the socket and it will light up..
since these special light bulbs has low voltage.

if you want, you click this link below to purchase the right bulb.
