I have a Wirlpool Gold Side by Side refrigerator I shut off and put in my garage for 2 months then wanted to use it. I plugged it in and now not cooling. I cleaned it temp control read outs went out. Now back on, still not cooling. Is it the main board that is bad and how much is the board ?
ANSWER Hi Dave. When you turn on ther unit both fans(evaporator and condenser) Have to be running. Remove the back and see if the compressor is running. I would use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist. you in your diagnosis. I had to use the model # that is the closest to the one you gave as the letter after the N is an S instead of 5 as mentioned...GS6SHEXNS02. Here's a few things to test/check : Do the refrigerator light(s) work properly ? if not you need to suspect the main control board right off the bat. At the U/I display board, on the 3 wire connector you should be able to read 5 VDC (dc volts) between black/white and tan/black and black/white to tan/white at the pins in the wire connector. If you have the voltages your U/I display board is bad 2304103 No voltage, your main control board is bad W10135090 and thats located in the plastic box located in the compressor compartment, in the back of the fridge. Thank You.
