Whirlpool refrig. problem


I have a Whirlpool side by side refrig, model GS6SHAXMB00. Today the display on the control panel stopped working as did the light on the refrigerator side. The light on the freezer size work fine, and I can hear the fan spinning. Also when I open the refrigerator door, there is a noise coming from what seems to be the lower right side of the refrig. noise goes away when you close the door.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hi,

GS6SHAXMB00
Haven't seen this electronic control before....has temp thermistors, a user board with an seperate electronic control board.
Local WLP depot may be best to check it out...
Whirlpool.

Someone would have to use the wire diagram that comes with the unit and test each light and with a volt meter to see where the power is being lost....probably something that is common to all of them or something that could effect all of them at once.


Electronic control board

Thanks for the quick reply. The control panel or box I was referring to is the one in the refrgerator compartment that has the digital readout on the front, two dials on the side (one for the fridge, other for the freezer) and the interior light. Looking at the interior light bulb, I can see it flickering very slightly, if this is any help.

Thanks

Yupper...appears to be a bit of a fluff board...all the work/power is done elsewhere in the main board.

Loose conection maybe somewhere?

Whirlpool refrig. problem


Hi Ken, I woke up yesterday, 01/06/2006 to the same exact problem with my Whirpool side by side model # GS2SHAXNL00. If I remove the bulb, the temp console LEDs light up fine, and there is no nasty sounding electrical noise from down back. I put in a new bulb, hoping that would resolve it, but it did not.

I am not very handy, and will probably have to call someone, but I'm willing to try. If you find out anything, please let me know.

This side by side let us down last year, 6/2005, when the compressor went, however when I look now at the invoice, nature of service was "no light & cannot set" , replaced an interface (2255233), something that spells like ferrte?? (2308165), switch (1118894, and board (2252189). I think this refrigerator is a lemon...

Funny This same thing happened to me lately (model GS6HAXMB00) I figured it was a bulb and that wasn't it. My LED front light doesnt work at all, everything went out at once. So I replaced the door switch that didn't solve it, I tested for power and the switch has current running through it, so now what, replace the board? I don't think I'll be buying this brand again.....

Yep sorry about that I forgot the "s". Is there a way to test the board without replacing it? I would assume i'd see something burnt on it or a connector burnt somewhere, i dont see antyhing thus far.....

I'll have to really dig into it tonight and take a close look at the board.

Wow - these things must all be set to go bad at the same time!!! Mine has similar symptoms. Bulb appears bad, digital readout off, remove bulb, readout now operates, new bulb, readout goes out. Unscrew new bulb, readout resumes. I think the fridge is doing its normal cooling thing (w/o bulb anyway). I will try diags in pdf from Jeff. If ya'll get a solution, please post back.

Anyone get this fixed yet? I have not gone through the diags in the doc from jeff yet as I have been busy. Maybe I'll just call the repair guy.
