Whirlpool GC3PHEXNB00 Problem
« on: May 31, 2016, 01:51:55 PM »
I am having a problem with an 11 year, counter depth, side by side refrigerator freezer. It will operate fine most of the time, but when it reaches temperature and cycles off, it will not always restart. During this off period, before it re-starts, the digital display screen will flash all of the digits on the display, along with the indicator lights for quick cool, ice magic, and door alarm. The air baffle assembly motor will energize and de-energize (pulse) the entire time the unit is not running. You can manually push open the air baffle and it will close under power each time the power to the unit pulses. The alarm will also chirp during this time period. You cannot change the operation of the unit from the digital display screen during this time, but you can turn it off from the "cooling on-off" button. I have entered the service diagnostic mode and everything checks out OK. Any ideas? All help is appreciated

Update on the problem: Last night the above listed problem went on for 4 hours while the box temperature continued to slowly rise. Now the digital display/temperature control screen is blank. The unit started running and continued to run the remainder of the night. It was -18.4 F in the freezer this morning. Is just the digital display/temperature control module faulty or should I have the power supply rebuilt as it is no longer available? All help is appreciated.
