Whirlpool GS5SHAXNB00 Side by Side Refrigerator Light Problem

The lights on the refrigerator side only are all out and there is buzzing noise from what sound like some sort of relay under the unit. There was a comment on another thread regarding a bad diode on a control board.
1. Is this the same issue?
2. Where is the control board located?

Thanks.

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

SOURCE: Model gs5shaxnb00. Whirlpool refrigerator Ice maker

Does it make a noise like it is attempting to dispense ice, the whirling noise of the metal coil inside attempting to push out ice? Or does it make no noise at all? It could be a failed ice "coil" motor, or a failed sensor in the door telling the ice coil to move. Try unplugging the fridge for a good 2 minutes, replugging it in and seeing if it resets the motor and sensor.

Thanks, let me know!

Sounds like the electronic control in the rear compartment by compressor may be bad . There is a light in the crisper as well I believe and that one and the main light are controlled by the control in back.

Light bulbs are flashing with constant pulsing noise


It sounds like you have a lose connection for the lighting. It may be at the light bulb socket or even at the door switch. It also could be a lose wire going to or from these items. with a little detective work you should be able the bad connection.
I hope this helps :)
