    Dear FixYa, Already pulled control board and found the burn mark. Apparently this is an on going problem with Whirlpool refrigerator. Are they offering a discount for this defective part ? Tried to order a new control board, but part # has been discountinued. The new part # W10135090. This part will not be availible until April 1st. Thank You for your help.

    Yesterday, all 3 lights in the refrigerator stopped working. We replaced all 3 bulbs and the lights still aren't working! The freezer lights are fine. Sounds like the same problem.

Lights wont work on refrigerator side changed bulbs not the problem


The socket that holds the bulb may have a burnt wire or the door switch that operates the light may be bad.

Inside light went out...replacing bulb did not work, any help or advise? thanks! Mike


Many times when the inside light fails to operate...it could be:

(1) A bad bulb ...replace with a known good one.
(2) Bad connection of the light bulb in its socket.
(Remove the bulb and spray the socket with WD-40 Spray Lubricant) then...
(3) Replace the bulb with a known good bulb..use a dry rag to securely tighten the bulb in its socket.
(4) The "Door Switch" could be bad. Replace bad "Door Switch" with new one.

Hopes this helps....Good Luck! ...... HandyHenry

All the lights in the freezer are working. None of the lights in the refrigerator are working. All the bulbs have been changed. Is there a fuse in the refrigerator that would make the lights go out?


In your model , the refrig section light , gets its' power from the control board . When the lights stop working , so will the light for the temp adjustment display . The control board is located behind the refrig , at the bottom , on the left side , inside a white box . It is held on by 2 screws . The part costs around $ 80.00 , and is easily replaceable .

Light does not work in refrigator, it's not the blub.


Disconnect the refrigerator from AC Power. Remove the light bulb, get a flashlight and look into the socket the bulb screws into and see if there's any corrosion in the socket that could be preventing power from getting to the bulb. If there is corrosion get some steel wool or a scouring pad and thoroughly polish the inside of the socket, (CAUTION BE SURE THE REFRiGERATOR IS NOT PLUGGED INTO THE WALL AC OUTLET WHILE DOING THIS,) After cleaning the socket re-install the bulb and plug refrigerator back into the wall and see if it lights up,when the door is open, if it doesn't, the next thing to check would be the switch that applies power to the bulb when the refrigerator door is opened. It could be stuck or it may have gone bad.

Ref light bulbs wh-pool GS5SHA


Your refrigerator has two sets of electronic control boards. One is inside and works to adjust temperature and to communicate with the other below and behind the refrigerator. They both have relays that if bad could cause the sounds you hear. It would be ok to pull it away from the wall and open bottom cover and listen to see if the sound is coming from the lower control board. If yes we need to examine the board after unplugging the power to refrigerator. let me know if the board is the reason or if while there you find something different, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Servis fridgefreezer light


IT COULD BE A BAD LIGHT SWITCH, SOCKET OR BULB.
IF THE CONTROL IS ELECTRONIC, SOME REFRIGERATORS WILL SHUT DOWN THE LIGHTS IF THE DOOR IS LEFT OPEN TOO LONG.
BE SURE THE BULB IS SCREWED IN ALL THE WAY. SOMETIMES, THEY WILL WORK LOOSE.

Front light will not work


Before you go any farther stop. Unplug the refrigerator for the wall receptacle then look into the light socket (use a mirror if necessary), now see that contact point in the bottom of the socket? Raise that contact point to where it will ouch the bulb when you screw it back in. Now screw in the bulb plug in the refrigerator and open the door. Did I do OK ?
