Whirlpool fridge wbm35 all lights keep flashing on front sayng the door is open when its not. then the fridge defrosts

    I have the same problem, but service centres here in Zambia cannot work out the problem. It seems okay for a while if you turn down the fridge setting, but then after a while defrosts itself again.

    We had the similar problems with our WBM35. The alarm was sounding and three lights flashing, mainly in the mornings. Temperature control was erratic. Opening and shutting the doors seemed to have an effect on how often the alarm came up. Initially I thought that three lights flashing indicated the Freezer Door fault code but you must press the Alarm Off button while the leds are still flashing to get the actual Fault Code that caused the alarm. See 3.2.7 – Alarm System of the service manual that can be downloaded athttps://www.yumpu.com/en/document/view/1... (thanks Redbeard99). When I pressed the alarm reset button on while the 3 lights were flashing only the MAX led came on solid indicating Fault: Freezer Temperature over 0o C. I had already changed the Potency Module and Interface Card with no success. The problem was finally fixed by replacing the Temp Sensor. The new sensor part number is “Sensor Kit Temperature – code 326.005.854” and it should cost around $36. Quite simple to fit. I wish that I had correctly understood the way to read the fault codes and I may have changed the sensor first. Fridge has been running well for over 3 weeks now.

If motor makes strange noise intermittently, then a bearing has probably broken in the motor.
time for a new fride as it will cost more to repair.
mine lasted 7 years then did this.

Switch to fridge off. If you have a household fan, or pedestal fan, you can open the door, remove all the drawers and food, place the fan pointing toward the cabinet. It will defrost in minutes without damaging anything. Just remember that there will be water so you need to mop it up or put a thin container near the front where it runs out. Do not use any sharp object to loosen ice, you can puncture the refrigerant tubing.

Fridge does not get cold, lights are flashing and whoo whoo noise


Hi,
Lights which previously did not flash but now do are clear indicators of operating failure.
Refridgerators and freezers do not like being unplugged for too long. if yours has been disconnected from the power for more than a couple of days, it could be damaged and need part replacement.
The variables are cold leakage, cooling gas leakage, electrical pump failure, thermostat circuit open, thermal cut-off switch disconnected. All of the above can be dangerous - electricity, gas, over-working pump etc. so always remember what we learned in kindergarten - If in doubt don't' - good advice with anything risky.
If you set the fridge on the coldest setting, place a common thermometer inside, note the initial temperature after closing the door for 15 minutes and then leave the fridge door closed overnight, in the morning carefully touch the heat transfer coils at the back, they should be hot all over to the touch. Open the door and check if the temperature has dropped.
If the whoo whoo noise is coming from the pump (often located in a black closed saucepan-sized unit you need to contact a qualified Whirlpool fitter.
If the whoo whoo noise is coming from around the edge of the door, the airtight seal is possibly defective. The seals often get dust etc. trapped in the accordian-like sealing strips around the entire door so, being careful not to damage the seal, clean the inner grooves - an old toothbrush and household cleaner generally work well.
If the fridge is a self-defrosting type, the lights may be indicating that it is stuck in defrost mode - check the Whirlpool website for troubleshooting temperature settings. There is often a small regulator switch which can break down. If you think that this is where the noise is coming from do not go fiddling about - electricity is a to be treated with care. Look for scorch marks or listen for crackling noise indicating a short sparking. Unplug the fridge before poking around the wires. A connector may have been dislodged and needs to be reattached so double-check that the power is off before reattaching the loose wire. It should be obvious where it plugs in but if not, don't go touching different tabs.
Re-read the installation and operating manual or call a fridge repair service if you are unable to find the fault. You can save time and repair costs by telling the repair person what you have tested and the results.
The built-in thermostat could be malfunctioning and preventing the coolant coils to absorb heat.
Sometimes the defrost drip tube can become blocked. This generally runs down the back into a drip tray. You should be able to check for blockage by thoroughly cleaning the tray end of the tube and blowing through it. Don't ****.
I hope this helps,
jenni.
