    No the fridge tem is fine but the freezer temp sometimes turns into - - and the alarm goes off

  • badger7567 Feb 14, 2008

    don't know about exact temperatures but food is still frozen. The display panel is just flickering on both fridge and freezer panel and there is a clicking sound. It also clicks loudly when dispensing water and the water light flicks.

    By reading this site it seems this is a common problem and need 2 panels replacing I think or does anyone have another solution??

    I have a similar problem of constant clicking and flashing of the display and the fridge and freezer both work fine while this is going on. Any suggestions? from other forum sites it appears to be a pc board problem (and there are 2 pcb's one in the front and rear??) can anyone confirm this?

    I have the same problems of the temp display flashing and a clicking sound. If I turn the temperature down to max it stops but its just to cold to keep it there. any ideas?

    We have the same problem - flashing temperature lights and clicking, that disappear at lowest (too cold) temperature setting.

    Any solution to this? Is it a sign the fridge is about to break??

    Exactly as previous Fridge alarm goes off and display shows - - clicking noise when dispensing ice or water. I can reset by opening door closing and resetting but this only lasts a short time

    are you just looking at the digital displays?..what about the actual temperatures inside the compartments? are the food inside the freezer stays frozen?. are the food in the refrigerators are in chilling temperature?

  • francis rivero May 11, 2010

    are the temperatures of each door normal?

If you look on e-bay, there is a chap in the UK selling repair kits. If you are reasonably mechanically minded and handy with a soldering iron, and happy to remove components on a PCB and replace them you can fix all of your issues in about an hour. The kit costs £35 with full instructions and also you can phone him for advice. It consists of a number of capacitors (as per solution #1 plus several others). I fixed mine over the weekend and am delighted with the results, no need to pay hundreds for the the boards from whirlpool!!

This is a common problem with these Fridge Freezers. I had the same symptoms the cure is to replace both capacitors C1 and C2 on the rear PC. C1 is a 1uF 250v ac and C2 is a 1000uF 6.3v dc both can be obtained from Radiospares.
Hope this helps it certainly saved me a lot of money.

Im not really sure but i would say it could be a pc board problem. something shorting out and drawing a lot of power that is why your display are flickering and your lights flicker too.

Your freezer section has a defrost system problem. A device (Timer) schedules defrosts, energizes electric heaters which melt the frost, when the temperature of the coil gets above the point where all ice is melted a thermostat opens cutting the electrical circuit for the heater(s). The defrost cycle continues until the time expires (18-22 minutes). Therefore your problem could be any one of the three elements. Timer, heater, or thermostat.
