    I have the same problem just exactly as described. However the suggestion that is offered is of no help because that is exactly what kind of bulb we have tried to replace it with. It is an appliance light bulb with the correct voltage. Please let me know if there are any more suggestions.

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.

hope this will help yah!! Goodluck!!

No temperature digital display in refrigerator, light working, but loosing temperature in fridge & freezer

if its a G.E. make first check the PTC overload on the compressor to make sure compreesor is operating, if this isnt,check voltages on ptc,if no line voltage here,then check for the motherboard in the rear behind a panel as this board when bad will make digital readout go out and lights strobe and you may hear a clicking noise from there also as the lights flicker or strobe this board failure can be caused from a surge within the unit by a light bulb burning out or a power surge from outside too

No lights in the temperature control panel. I disconnected for ten minutes to try anda reboot but still njo lights. Frig seems to still be running. What to do now?

If it is cooling fine what the problem is,is a low voltage transformer that is part of the MAIN control board has gone out and not powering the display. The only fix for that is to replace the main control board. Be sure to note the part that is bad is part of the main board and not the display board.

The lights keep flickering on and off. The whole

GE has an ECM (Electronic Control Module) located on the back side of the fridge. Many of these boards went defective due to insufficient grounding. Replacing this brain usually fixes that. If you leave the fridge running in it's present state it will burn out the overload switch and possibly the compressor.

Flourescant lights flickering

is there a ballast or a starter? if there is a starter (little silver metal or white plastic can), then replace the transformer inside the lamp housing. if there is a ballast (long black rectangle with many wires) and you replaced that and the lamp, then there must be a power drain in the unit somewhere.

Whirlpool refrig side by side

flickering noises??? are they working at all. or are tehy flickering on/off along with the noiise. id be willling to bet that if you removed the back panel from behind the refrig, youll find a control board mounted on the left side(when lookin at from behind) alongside the compresssor assy in a white box. if thats the case that, that there is a board there and your lights are not functioning and you hear "chattering" when the doors open you have a faulty board, look up via model number and replace it

Whirlpool gs6shexns00 fridge

I had a very similar problem- flickering light bulbs, shorting-out noises, electronic temperature displays not working. I had to replace a small circuit board (the "Electronic Control Board") accessed from the rear of the fridge. A relatively easy do-it-yourself job.

GE Profile does not run.

Just to be sure... check your owners manual to see if this unit has a "showroom switch". It's a little switch that turns off the compressor, etc. but lets everything else light up so the sales persono on the showroom floor can show it off. Some customers have hit the switch to "on" during cleaning by accident.
