Question about Whirlpool GS5SHAXN Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool GS5SHAXNL00. The light in our refrigerator went out at the same time we lost the ref /freezer control indicator lights when my son opened the fridge last nite. He said he heard a "pop" sound but no further unusual sounds from it now. . Everything seem to still be working, fan/compressor/freezer lights/ ice maker. When I removed the refridgerator bulb (tested good in another outlet) the RC/FC indicators come back on. Temps seem to be good as I put in a thermometer to keep track. Suggestions as to what's wrong and how to fix it would be appreciated. Thank you for your assistance with this issue.

Hi,

The control board of your Refrigerator is the problem.Actually it is the one which controls the indicator lights.Since you say you heard a pop sound.The control board transistors has been burst or some times damaged wiring connections to the cause a short circuit.Please check for any burnt out wires through bulb to the control board.

The control board looks like this.If it is wiring problem solder it correctly and check for the replacement of damaged wires.
If board is the problem go for replacement.If you don't have hands on in it.take it to the nearest service center.

My whirlpool fridge is getting warmer


there is a dampener control that lets air over to ref section, put your hand at the area to see if air is coming over from freezer.
if not look in freezer in back to see if it is all frozen, if so call tech.
if not push light button in freezer side with door open and liston for fan if fan does not run that is your problem.

Also look inside freezer at the rear wall to make sure there is no frost building on the rear wall that would also indicate a defrost problem caused by this control board malfunctioning.

Placing a refrigerator in the garage


IF YOUR GARAGE TEMP GOES BELOW 35 THE REF MAY NOT WORK WELL BECAUSE MOST REF HAVE THE THERMOSTAT AS THE REF CONTROL. THE TEMP IN THE BOX IS SENSED AT THAT POINT AND SHUTS OFF, THE REF SEEM TO WORK BUT THE FREEZER WILL WARM UP.
IF YOU WANT TO USE A REF IN THE GARAGE, FIND ONE THAT HAS THE THERMOSTAT CONTROL AS THE FREZER CONTROL. LOOK AT THE CONTROLS, THE ONE THAT HAS AN OFF POSITION IS THE CONTROL THAT IS THE THERMOSTAT. SO, THE FREZER CONTROL SHOULD SAY "OFF" SOME NEWER REF WITH FULL ELECTROINIC CONTROLS MAY WORK AS THEY HAVE INDIVIDUAL SENSORS FOR BOTH THE REF AND FREEZER SECTIONS.
