Default Whirlpool Refrigerator clicking from circuit board
Model Number: GS6SHAXML00   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a GS6SHAXML00 side by side Whirlpool refrigerator.
The unit has been shutting down (not cooling) recently. When I open the refrigerator or freezer door it will sometimes start clicking (if the compressor is running when I open the door it continues to work fine). Usually it will restart in a few minutes if the clicking starts. Sometimes it doesn't. If it doesn't restart I can unplug the unit, plug it back in, and it starts immediately (I might hear one click). I pulled the fridge out and took the back off and the clicking, or popping, is coming from the circuit board in the white box attached to the lower side of the fridge on the refrigerator side, near the compressor. The clicking is absolutely coming from the circuit board. I took the circuit board out of the white box and can hear it distinctly. The part on the circuit board is labeled Potter & Brumfield, T7CS5D-24, also has 700514 and 0314 as part of the info. There are 3 soldered on the board. Is this a symptom of something else that is wrong (compressor or relay etc), or does the circuit board (which does not seem to be available) need to be replaced? Thanks.

Hello,

I have exact same problem with my Whirlpool refrigerator. After inspecting the control board, I see the same part numbers as you described. The clicking sound definitely comes from one of the relays.
Do you mind sharing what you ended up doing with it? Were you ever able to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Apparently its a reoccurring problem with the circuit board in these.

Part number WPW10135090

Does yours have any burn marks on the solder side of the board? any bulged capacitors?

I see these sell on Epay and there are places that can fix them.

Thanks for replying. I didn't see any "bulging" on any of the components but I ended up replacing all three relays with news ones I got online. I would have liked to replace the whole board, but it's no longer manufactured and the ones I was able to find are well over $300.
After replacement the clicking sound is gone, BUT looks like the freezer isn't freezing any more while regular section is about 40F (which I think is normal). Granted, I replaced relays late last night so maybe it needs time to cool.
Both fan and compressor seem to be running fine. If freezer doesn't start working properly I have no option but to cut my losses and get a new refrigerator.
Would love to hear if you had a similar experience.

Thanks in advance.

Replacing the electrolytic capacitors would probably help. They often fail and can cause many problems.

Any pics of your board?
