Have you got a screw loose. One which holds the door light switch. is it the switch which buzzes?. I had a fridge which didn't get cold. When I scrapped it I found that the retaining ring for the switch was not tight enough and r4ealised that the light had been on when the door was closed.

Sounds like the electronic control in the rear compartment by compressor may be bad . There is a light in the crisper as well I believe and that one and the main light are controlled by the control in back.

Whirlpool Gold Black on Black 21.9 cu


I had the same problem. The light would dimly flicker and make a sort of clicking noise. It was still under warranty and the repair man had to replace a circuit board in the back. Not sure of what the cost would be if not under warranty. Hope this helps.

BUZZING NOISE ON WHIRLPOOL GOLD FRIDGE/FREEZER


YOU MAY HAVE A BAD LIGHT BULB, SOCKET OR LIGHT SWITCH. TRY WIGGLING THE SWITCH TO SEE IF THERE IS ANY CHANGE IN THE BULB INTENSITY. IF NO CHANGE, TRY REPLACING THE LIGHT BULB. IF NO CHANGE, THE SOCKET NEEDS REPLACED.

Whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise


I had the same problem. Model Number GS5SHAXNL00 Light wouldn't work on the fridge side and the led's wouldn't light up. Ended up being a blown circuit path on the control board.

Check the picture.f21d241.jpg

All I did was soder a wire between the 2 points that path was connecting and *BINGO* the lights are back on!

Hope this helps someone. To find the burned out spot just look for a little black smudge on the white plastic case when you remove the board.
