Whirlpool GX5FHTXVY09 control issue
« on: February 18, 2014, 08:26:25 PM »
This French door fridge keeps shutting down by itself. The display will go from displaying the fridge (4) and freezer settings (4) to displaying dashes (-).  Compressor and fans shut down. It will stay this way until a button is pushed or sometimes needs to be unplugged. Seems like the control board but not sure if some other component might be causing this. The control board for this model is all up in the user interface compartment and joined to the user controls via soldered ribbon.

Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like the control board. I would change it out but that's easy for me to say, I stock it on my truck.  Jazz board, 12784415. The tech sheet is under the right front corner.
