I replaced a circuit board that is in the white box at the lower left rear of the fridge. You will need to remove the cardboard cover, then there is two screws to loosen the box. The circuit board is inside. There is a white tab that sticks up push it sideways and it will pop right out. Put the plugs in the new board and pop it back in and put everything back together. Be sure the wires are routed so they do not contact the compressor.
If you want to test it first get a voltmeter one probe to CN1, the white wire, and the other to CN2, yellow wire with red stripe, there should be 120 volts. If not, or when the door is open it drops replace the board.
I did not have a voltmeter but it seems everybody that had a problem the fridge was 4 to 5 years old. So I bit the bullet, around $90.00, and replaced it and it works!

Whirlpool gold fridge model GD5SHAXNSOO


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.

JennAir JC2289AE Refridgerater Grinding Noise ??


i can't find a diagram on this model.are you sure it is correct.is this the one with the two long slide levers to adjust the temp for fridge and freezer?if so,the sound will be coming from the right in the back.some describe it almost as a motor sound.generally that is the sound of the defrost board.it should not do that.that is a early warning sign of trouble and soon frost will develop on the lower freezer wall.replace the board.if it the one with two nobs on the left for temp adjust,then you probally have a noisy damper(the doorway between the fridge side and freezer that lets in cold)without more info,its hard to say
