Question about Whirlpool GS5SHAXN Side by Side Refrigerator

Lights out in the fridge side only

My husband opened the fridge earlier today and noticed a popping sound. All the lights on the fridge side only have gone out. He's replaced the bulbs and everything's still out. The fan's working, it's still cold, the freezer's fine, it's just all the fridge lights and temperature LEDs. We've looked in the book that came with it and no help there. We've "rebooted" the fridge, looked for breakers, but can't find anything. The fridge is almost 3 years old. Does anyone know what this is?

Thanks
Debra

    Same problem with all lights out on fridge side. Appl tech ordered new control box(pn2255233) & diffuser(2209753). Parts installed & did NOT change situation. Fridge is not cold & freezer is no longer making ice, which means it is not cold enough . Compressor is running nonstop. Fridge is only 3 yrs installed.

Not sure if it is keeping food cold. I am not opening it. Is there a reset button on the refrigerator? Does anyone know what is going on. WHIRPOOL Please HELP US!!!!!!!

    Bulb and LED temp lights are out on the fridge side. The help descriptions are correct- you remove the white box at the lower left- take the board out and there is a burned spot right at pin 90 on the board. I suppose you could jumper it as one poster described or you can order a new part - mine cost $100 even with shipping from Sears. I tried to find it online elsewhere but with no part on the board and no picture matching what I see I would rather order from some place I know I can return it. I am confident when I recieve the board that it will solve the problem.

    good luck!

To epicshooter, did youget the light fixed on your refrig by changing the board that had the burnt spot next to pin 90? If so do yo have the part number for the replacement. My refrig is doing the same thing.

Having the same problems with all lights out & compressor running constantly. Service tech replaced entire control box in fridge side, which also controls lights, & no change in satus . Fridge is not cooling properly & freezer is not making ice, which means not cold enough. Fridge is 3yrs installed. Just got off phone w/whrlpool with no solution & no offer to fix under warrenty.

Yes, and it should be covered under warranty. whirlpool has experienced problems with interference on this model . could have taken out one or both of these. control 2303805, and 2304056. tech must also install a ferrite insulator on control to filter interference and move the water valve wiring away from all other wires. use this info to get it fixed under warranty.

Samsung SR 61KTC fridge not cooling but freezer is fine fans seemed to be very noisy a few days ago now sound like not on at all


Had the same problem when the door switch broke. The electronics of the fridge thought the door was open and therefore the fridge would not cool. I noticed that the light wouldn't turn off when the door was closed to discover the switch was broken. It was an $11 part which my husband replaced and the fridge works fine now.

Hello,

If it's cooling ok, they're probably normal sounds. Modern refrigerators can make many noises, most people aren't home long enough to hear them. A popping sound could be defrost water hitting a hot defrost element, or refrigerant making noise in the cooling lines. If it's working ok, ignore it.

Good luck.......

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.

Freezer not freezing, fridge section not cooling


the problem you have sounds like the defrost heater is not being activated causing the evaporator to choke up with ice which will therfore restrict the airflow through the cabinet,
to resolve this problem you are best to defrost the unit and replace the thermal fuse for the heater' and the defrost sensor, both these parts are located behind the evaporator cover inside the freezer.

hope this is of help murdozzz2
