Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My whirlpool side by side model no. GS6SHEXNQ00 light in the frig does not come on when the door is open. Also, the control box for the temps for the freezer and frig that is part of the assembly where the light is has lights in it that tell you what your setting are at and those lights do not work either. I tested the door switch and the light bulb and they are ok. There is power at the terminals that connect to the door switch.

You need to replace the main board in the rear of the unit,if the digital temp readouts are out and the refrigerator lights are out,this model is notoriously great at destroying the circuit board afore mentioned above especially if just recently lights burned out in this compartment, what it does is there are control relays on this board and when theres a surge from blowing out lights the board gets a surge and the printed circuit trace is opened-up/burned away,if you remove the board from the plastic case there will be a burn spot on the case where the board burned and it will be below one of the relays on this board,in some instances the bulbs will dimly strobe and you can hear the relays chatter,trying to latch and provide power to the refrigerator,unplug the old board,check for this problem and put in a new board if you find this

The part number for the thermister is 2188819

Frig side does not cool. freezer side cools


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Inside lights not working on frig side, working on freezer side, changed all 3 bulubs


You have a bad control board , located behind the refrig , mounted to the bottom left corner , inside the white plastic box . Also , the temp adjustment light , should be out . This board , is held onto the refrig , by those 2 , 1/4 " screws . It is easily replaceable , and costs about $80.00 .

Only the freezer side is working


I don't think the darkness is related to the fridge not being cool. The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp
OR
..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Not keeping cold both frig and freezer side.


First you need to check if the compressor is working properly.
Remove the rear panel and look for a cylinder with bunch of copper lines going in and out. feel those copper lines one of them should be warm and the other should be cold. Also you should hear the compressor working (pretty noisy) when the temperature in the freezer is not cold enough. If the lines are about same temperature and the compressor does not seem to work, the first place to check is the starter relay. Often the relay breaks. The part is WHIRLPOOL 2188830 2220475 RELAY. I found one on ebay.

Good luck
