The light in the refriderator has no power getting to it and the temp display has no light showing


You have a Whirlpool refrig and it has a bad control board . This board is located behind the refrig , on the left side at the bottom , inside a plastic housing . This housing is held on by 2 screws at the bottom left . Remove the housing and the control board inside . Replace the board and reinstall the housing . It costs about $ 80.00 . When you go to get the part , take the complete model number with you so you get the correct board . This board controls the light for the refrig AND the lights for the control knobs PLUS other parts which work ok relating to the cooling .

Refrig & freezer not cooling properly


I believe the start relay and start capacitor with the overload will need replaced. That is easy and should solve your problem, Sea Breeze

I had a huge block of ice on the bottom of my freezer that I got rid of yesterday. Over night the ice started to form again. What could be wrong? The unit is only about 8 years old and we've already had...


This can be caused by the drain hole below freezer coil being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost. Possible defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer.

My GE side by side Model # GSS20IEPA has frost on


Is the fan in the freezer working ? May have to press the light switch in to test . If not , main control board is probably bad . not the fan moter . Pull refrigerator out and remove the small 10"X13" metal cover . Unplug refrig first . Then remove the blue plug with 3 wires attached to it . The wire sequence on the plug looks like this : wire 1,wire 2,space wire 3.
Use an insulated jumper wire with both ends stripped and insert one end into wire 2 and the other into wire 3 . Plug refrig back in and look in freezer at the bottom . If the heater and defrost thermostat are good , the a red glow should appear . No red glow , either bimetal or heater is bad . Most likely heater pt# WR51X10101 . Do not forget to reinstall the blue plug with refrig unplugged or could cause main board dammage .

Refrig/Freezer not cooling


"compressor not functioning". You Probably need a New Compressor. I have a Family Member whos Refrig/Freezer Compressor had to be replaced under Warranty when it was only 2 years Old.
