My Whirlpool gold fridge temperature control panel won’t set…

Customer Question
My Whirlpool gold fridge...

My Whirlpool gold fridge temperature control panel won’t set below 70

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I bought it used so I think it’s about 5 years old. Here is the model # GC5SHEXNS05

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Hopefulky :)

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The lights come on and it’s not making any noises but I also don’t hear any fans or motors trying to start

I just unplugged it and back in. The fridge makes a long beep, I hear a fan attempting to start. Then a short beep followed by the long beep again and the fan come on then going right back off. The lights inside the appliance goes off after the long beep. Then lights comes back on. And then the cycle repeats

The main control will need to be replaced. It has been redesigned and comes in a kit now. It is located in the back, down by the compressor. It is tucked into the left side cabinet. The new kit comes with complete installation instructions.

The link below is to the part you will need!
