SOURCE: Interior level indicator and interior

The failed part on my unit was 2252189, the electric control board. This board is located on the left side of the refrigerator in the back next to the compressor. Its inside a plastic box on the side. That number has changed to a number WHIW10135090 and cost $84 from www.apdepot.com

A previous post listed a part number 2303805 as being the problem. That part number was the replacement number for the control board that is located in the control box inside the refrigerator. That part is NO LONGER AVAILABLE. It has been replaced by part 2255233 which is the entire control box. cost for that part is $161.00 from AP Depot. I purchased this part first and it was found to NOT be the problem.

I would suggest that anyone who has this problem start with the less expensive part 2252189 and them see if you need to spend more.

My unit worked fine with exception the the refigerator side interior lights and the digital display. Compressor and temperatures were fine. Just an FYI on my problem specifics.

SOURCE: light flickers in refrigerator

Yor refrigerator has a control board in 2 places. I would like to to unplug and pull the refrigerator away from the wall. Behind the cover where the compressor is located there is a circuit board. Take the cover off and examine the board for burn marks and loose solder connection. Let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool side by side refrigerator model

you need to replace the main/board for sure located in the lower rear left hand wall of the unit in a plastic case, it will have 3 wire harnesses unplug the unit,undo the plastic container and unplug the the board and there will be a burned spot on the case and burned trace on the circuit board, reason being,this is very common on any of these sideXsides,if a light blows out in the refrige compartment it puts a surge on the board and burns the circuit trace open,this makes the digital temp read-out go dark and if the lamps light at all they "strobe" dimly or not at all,and you will hear a clicking of the relays in the rear area trying to latch the light bulb circuitry, but cant because the main/mother-board is defective now

Hi,
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning electronics, it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

No temperature digital display in refrigerator, light working, but loosing temperature in fridge & freezer


if its a G.E. make first check the PTC overload on the compressor to make sure compreesor is operating, if this isnt,check voltages on ptc,if no line voltage here,then check for the motherboard in the rear behind a panel as this board when bad will make digital readout go out and lights strobe and you may hear a clicking noise from there also as the lights flicker or strobe this board failure can be caused from a surge within the unit by a light bulb burning out or a power surge from outside too

Refrigerator Crash


Rod; when a run is melted off the board, it is always a result of one or more components on that board shorting out and drawing maximum current that generates enough heat to first lift up the run and then to melt it in two. So if you only repaired the run you still have a problem on that board.

We have a 25.4 cubic Whirlpool side-by-side fridge/freezer stainless steel look. Since the last 2 weeks....the display lights showing temperatures in fridge and freezer the front water/ice dispenser unit...


the clicking is from the lamp relay which makes the lights flicker and its located on the units rear area in the back,without a model number i cant tell what this boards model number is but you need to replace this whole board as they are non repairable(this is usually caused by a power surge or outage,which can destroy these boards,also even if a lamp in the unit burns out this can destroy this board too)

Whirlpool refrig side by side


flickering noises??? are they working at all. or are tehy flickering on/off along with the noiise. id be willling to bet that if you removed the back panel from behind the refrig, youll find a control board mounted on the left side(when lookin at from behind) alongside the compresssor assy in a white box. if thats the case that, that there is a board there and your lights are not functioning and you hear "chattering" when the doors open you have a faulty board, look up via model number and replace it

Lights Out


maybe the bulb is not compatible with a frigde itself. It is not like a convential house bulb that you can plug it on the socket and it will light up..
since these special light bulbs has low voltage.

if you want, you click this link below to purchase the right bulb.
