we had someone come out and tell us it was the mother board, cause it was not defrosting, asking which part is that and how hard is it to change
The control board that is needed for the defrost is part number W10503278 and is the control board in the refrigerator compartment that you adjust the temperatures on. To remove the control panel you will need to first remove the light cover. Once the light cover is removed look at the back part of the controls and there will be 2 slots. Using a flat blade screwdriver push in on the tabs that hold the panel in place. This will allow the control to drop down and allow you to change the control board.
Refrigerator and freezer stopped and I found that the Adaptive defrost control had a burned out circuit so I got a new part and the second I plugged it in it blew. What could it be?
The board blowing out just as soon as power is supplied will be caused by a dead short and you will need to check the wiring, check the heater, compressor and fans to make sure that the short is not coming from them.
Center wall between freezer and refrig. is getting extremly hot. Can you help me?
Answer Hello Dallas. Based on the information you provided, you will need to check the condenser fan motor and make sure the coils are clean.
Where is the defrost contol board located?
Answer Hello Dean. To access the defrost board, you will need to drop the control panel in the fresh food section down. The board is inside there.
I have a Whirlpool Refrigerator ED5VHGXML13 that hasn't been cooling well recently. The ice cream melted and then refroze. I'm not sure if it's the cold control or the adaptive defrost control board. How do I diagnose?
Answer Hello David,
The diagnosis in this case would be determined by the specific customer complaint. The issue is most likely the adaptive defrost control 4388932. If it were the cold control, the unit normally would not begin cooling again until the cold control was adjusted or "bumped".
