Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

The light on the fridge side is out and there is a buzzing sound. Also the LED for the Temp Controls are out. When I take the light bulb out the buzzing sound goes away and the LED for the tempature controls come back on. I replaced the bulb with a new bulb and the problem does not change. It seems like something is wrong with the electrical system on the fridge side. It is like the bulb is loading down that part of the system. Also when I disengage the fridge light switch the sound goes away.

Try shutting down your unit, unplug it from the wall and wait a few minutes - plus it back in and turn on see if it solves the problem otherwise you may have a faulty board.

Hi Charles,

Sorry for the late reply, I'm offline upon purchasing my service.
You have said that you can hear a low buzzing sound before the unit gone to subsequent shutdown and the lamp blinks green(meaning that the unit try to turn on the lamp for consecutive attempts but not generally mean that the lamp itself is faulty.) and the temp led light come on.

As a matter of fact all the information you have mentioned linked to the symptoms you've encountered right now. A low buzzing sound might be caused by faulty FAN inside the unit that trigger the error code (blinking of the standby/temp led light) and turns off the unit automatically due to thermal protection circuit.
However, the technician might be true also that the buzzing sound came from the faulty color wheel. To confirm it, you have to verify where the buzzing sound came from. Color wheel is in front of the lamp assembly. Faulty color wheel can produce the same symptoms you've encountered right now but most of the time, it shows 3 blinking led light at the front panel (Timer, Lamp, standby/Temp).

I would advice you to open the back cover of your unit, fixed the lamp door safety switch with the tape to make it in closed position( if it is on open position the unit will not power up), and then turn on the unit and observe the fans if will spin or not, and check also where the buzzing sound came from before the unit gone to shutdown.
I've suspected that the fault came from the fan based on the led light flashes. Please let me know what you will discover after following the steps above to verify where the exact fault came from. Also, let me know the exact status of the led light at the front panel, (Timer, Lamp, standby/Temp ), which of them lit solid/blinking, it will help us to narrow the caused of the symptoms.

GE Arctica intermittant clicking sound, panel flashes "hrs"


It sounds like the main control board is going bad . This controls every part on the fridge , except for the light bulbs . It's located on the back of the refrig , behind an 8" X 10" panel , with about 11 screws , holding the panel on . Part number WR55X10656 .

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).

Whirlpool gold fridge model GD5SHAXNSOO


Have you got a screw loose. One which holds the door light switch. is it the switch which buzzes?. I had a fridge which didn't get cold. When I scrapped it I found that the retaining ring for the switch was not tight enough and r4ealised that the light had been on when the door was closed.
