Question about Whirlpool GS6SHAXLS Side by Side Refrigerator

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling. Ice buildup on coils and refrigerator temperature panel blinks every 10-20 seconds

Hello Experts, Thank you for taking the time to help me with my problem. My Whirlpool Gold side by side # GC5SHEXNS00 refrigerator is not cooling properly. The fresh food side is not cooling and the bottom freezer section was colder than the top. There was ice build up on the coils in the freezer section, the fan on top of the coils was running, and the temperature control panel blinked every 10 seconds with a chirping sound. The electronic damper door from the freezer to the refrigerator closes shut if I manually open it thus not allowing any cold air into the fresh food side. A repairman was out and said I needed a new control board located at the bottom rear of the refrigerator and that I could order one and replace it myself. I have since melted the ice on the coils and replaced the main controller board but the damper door, panel blinking, and high temps in the fresh food side is still there. Can the temperature control panel be bad (blinking)?

Hello, We have a Whirlpool Gold bottom freezer


I don't know about Whirlpool refrigerator freezers, but my Amana has a temperature control in the freezer that regulates the overall cooling, and then the control in the refrigerator compartment controls how much of the total cooling is sent to the refrigerator section. My advice would be to lower the temperature setting of the freezer, and see if the temperature lowers in the refrigerator as well. Also, you can go to the Whirlpool website and they can help you further.

The water dispenser and the ice maker have stopped working on my Whirlpool Gold GS5SHA. I have cleaned and defrosted the ice maker. The lines look clear. Any suggestions? Thank you.


Hello Kent, with the work you were doing on your frig did you shut off the water valve and just forget to turn it back on. This is a very common problem. Check and see, GOOD LUCK.

I have a Whirlpool GC5SHEXNS00 side-by-side refrigerator that has stopped cooling. For quite some time the center column was hot to the touch, but it maintained the ability to cool. Now it no longer cools...


If the center wall was hot then your defrost heater was stuck on, now with no cooling it could be you burnt out the compressor or the main board could be fried. Not good either way, it might be time for a new one. Sorry

My whirlpool gold side by side serial # slo539783 model #gd


Sound like you have a refrigerant leak I suggest to take it to a pro because you need lots of tools and knowledge to properly fix it And don?t let people tell you than is just to add refrigerant because that is a common myth or miss conception, refrigerant don?t ware out or burn out if the system need refrigerant is because there is a leak some where.

Whirlpool conquest 2001 GS6SHAXKQ01 refrigerator side by side top part is not cooling


Don't let them tell you that the problem is related to "sulfur" in your water. It's a scam so that they don't have to repair the problem. The actual problem is that they don't use quality parts to build these units anylonger.
