Hello,

You need to see if the refrigerator is plugged in properly. Also check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. See if there is any damage to the electrical cord and check the outlet voltage. Troubleshoot the problem and if you do not find any of the above reasons as the cause of refrigerator not working, call the repairman.

Check for the temperature control. If it is off, turn it on. If not, then you need to check the compressor for overheating. You need to unplug the refrigerator and clean the condenser coils. If the compressor is bad, then you need to call the repair man.
Also, You need to check the temperature settings and see if there is enough air flow in the refrigerator and freezer. You need to check for air flow restrictions in the vents and clean the compressor coils. The door seals, door switch, defrost heater and timer has to be checked. Also clean the clogged drain tube and refrigerant leak.

Take care.

Lights Out and Door Open Indicator Flashes


Hi,

The problem is above the doors at the switch, the unit can't see the switch opening (closing the door opens the switch). The linkage is where the problem is, the light go out to protect the fridge from getting too warm and the lights are remaining on after you close the door.

I hope this helped. Good Luck

Hi - hearing a fan whirling sound when either of the upper doors are closed. Freezer is still freezing but warm up top. Pressing the close button instead of closing the door produces the same fan sound.


Make sure the lights are going off in the freshfood section. If lights staying on remove bulbs immediately and order new control board located on back of unit.

Interior level indicator and interior lights not working on Whirlpool GD5RHAXNB00 Refrigerator.


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 It has been replaced by part 2255233 which is the entire control box.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.
