Light does not work, even with new lightbulb - Whirlpool Refrigerators


Answers :

HI. The actual door switch has failed.

Test the switch for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should change from a reading of infinity to zero when the probes touch the terminals. With the probes still touching the terminals depress the switch, the reading should change back to infinity. If it does not pass both of these tests, the switch should be replaced

I have a relatively new (3 yrs old) Whirlpool Gold refrigerator (Model GD5RHAXTS01). We unplugged the unit for 3 months while away from the home.

Refrigerator is not cooling at al. Light works but that's about it. got a quote but looking around for better prices. Was told.... "Needs new evaporator, acso filter & freon 12" The quote for fixing it was astronomical from this place and I wanted to check around but every place I call won't give a quote on anything (even) parts over the phone and I don't want to waste another $75 trip fee for someone to tell me the same thing I already know.

Not cooling I just moved into a new place, the whirlpool refrigerator is plugged in and the interior light (and water system) works but it isn't cold and there isn't any sound from any fans or motors. Is there a second switch somewhere to turn on the cooling system? Or is there more likely a bigger problem and it needs to be repaired? I've looked for switches, adjusted the cooling temperature knobs and unplugged and replugged in the unit, still nothing. If there was a way for the previous t

The freezing and refrigerator compartments of my Whirlpool refrigerator began to warm up yesterday, and there is essentially no cooling today. The interior light works, and the fan on the lower par of the refrigerator in back works, but the air blowing out the back is rather cool and not warm like you would expect. The refrigerator is a Whirlpool Designerstyle 20. Any suggestions?

I have a KitchenAid Superba refrigerator, Model # KSB S25FKBL00. The water and ice dispenser stopped working and the light also stopped working. The ice maker still makes ice and the refrigerator/freezer still work. What can we do to fix this. We have removed the front panel and also looked at the wires at the bottom of the freezer door and do not see anything broken. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I do not want to spend $600 on a new door or purchase a new refrigerator.

I have a MFI2568AEW Maytag refrigerator that started flashing the door alarm today even though the doors are shut. After 3-4 minutes, the lights on the inside of the refrigerator stop working. Everything but the lights appears to be working fine for now i.e. it still appears to be cooling, etc. A reset of the power on the refrigerator resets the door alarm but 5 minutes later, it starts flashing/beeping again. Can someone tell me what the problem might be and how I might resolve it?


Sounds like the switch that activates the light on and off is either out of adjustment or broken. ... Maytag MFI2568AES Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

I had to replace the WFCO power converter, as it had gone bad. The refrigerator would not work either, with the check light staying on all the time, even with a good battery and no AC powere connected. Now that I have replaced the converter, the refrigerator still won't work on gas or electricity. The check light stays on. The 3 amp and 5 amp fuses are still good. What could it be?
