My unit worked for about 3 weeks before the refigerator started getting warmer and warmer. Freezer iced up on inside cover. Repairman didn't check with meter but defrosted unit and said the main board is bad and probably UI board. Is this a symptom of the board and should I try to diagnose myself? Unit's been working great for about 24 hours.
Answer Hello Bluwho. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Can I do it myself? Install the main control board I mean.
Answer Hello Bill,
The main control board is not hard to replace. It is located in the bottom of the unit inside the plastic control board housing. Just make sure the power is disconnected and the wires are placed on the new board where they were on the old board. I recommend to only remove one wire at a time and put it on the new board. Then remove the next wire and place it on the new board. This will prevent crossing any wires. Also, this board is static sensitive so it isn't a bad idea to use a grounding strap during the board replacement.
The fridge and freezer cool to proper cooling temperature and when the motor kicks off it does not kick back on. Is this the control board?
The control board could be the issue but you would want to check the thermistors on the unit to ensure that they are within range first. At 77 degrees the thermistors should read 2.7K ohms. If not reading this then they are bad and need to be replaced. If they do read this then the control would most likely be the cause.
I need an electronic control board for this model of Whirlpool. Is it AP4334800?
Answer Hello CLC, we should clarify your model first. I think you are missing a "M" or "N" in the model number. I found models GS6SHEXMQ00 or GS6SHEXNQ00 instead of GS6SHEXQ00. Both of these models use Electronic Control Board W10135090. Hope this helps!
Looking for a part number for a junction box for my hot water heater. Its a Whirlpool.
Answer Hello Melvin! Unfortunately, we do not carry parts for model EE2H50RD045V. Sorry about that!
I just ordered a new electronic board for this refrigerator. The present one "popped" and the lights went out in refrigerator compartment. Is there easy access to swap out the old board with the new board-where is it located on unit?
Answer Hello Gary. The control board W10135090 is not hard to replace. It is located in the bottom of the unit inside the plastic control board housing. Just make sure the power is disconnected and the wires are placed on the new board where they were on the old board.
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.
