    I have the same problem. I am totally ticked at Whirlpool and will never buy another unit.

    Here is my review: This unit is unreliable and unfortunately Whirlpool will not take responsibility beyond the warranty. I've had 3 major repairs within a year and half out of warranty. A plastic gear had sheared in the icemaker. It cost me $248.44 to fix. Later another plastic part broke in the dispenser, this one in the door. You know that little flap? I was told the entire door would have to be replaced, a $600 part. On top that, the thermostat console which controls the interior light and led reading went out. The problem above....I personally will be avoiding all Whirlpool products like the plague. I feel ripped off.

    Anytime I put 40w appl. bulbs in, they "fizz" like a bad neon sign at a motel in a slasher flick & the temp display goes out. ? gives?,(as in-GIVES OUT!)

    Same exact problem, one moment my wife opened the door and everything was fine...then the with the next open...NO light, NO LED display. And of course no real information on the net or ability to solve the problem....LIKE A FUSE! First the ice maker went out on this a cost of $550.00 to repair. Something I could have fixed...IF A REPAIR MANUAL WAS AVAILABLE. This is the last time I will purchase a US company base product.

Funny you asked this question i just had this same problem this week at a customers home. you need the electronic control board located in the compressor compartment behind the refrig. it is mounted in the white box on the left hand rear corner. the whirlpool part number is 2304095 and it is around 175.00 i'm not sure who a local part supplier around you would be if all else fails you could get thru sears..

My Whirlpool GS6SHEXNL00 has a hole in the water supply line just before the copper coupling connecting it to the wall. How do I replace this line safely?

I do not have an answer for replacing the supply line, but You could potentially have a backed up supply line for either the water or ice maker lines on your fridge from the start device. On some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool, these 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 [email protected]

You have a common fault with the electronics.
Check on a large auction site for a repair kit.
Item number: 330363841350
It will only cost £30, better then a few hundred.

Whirlpool gs2shexn side by side problem

Hi: It sounds tough. Have you tried resetting the electronics? Unplug it for one hour. Don't get into it so the cold will stay in. Then plug it back in again. Sometimes chips need to be reset. Good Luck, Jeff

Hi. Your temperature control board display is bad. You may also have a power convertor board located next to the compressor. Normally you would replace the temperature control board first. I have a temperature control board listed on Ebay as item number 250211412492. Good luck, Mack
