Kelly, I have a Westinghouse side by side fridge freezer

Customer Question

HI Kelly, I have a Westinghouse side by side fridge freezer with ice maker. It is 4 years old. For the last week the blue light inside has been cycling off/on and the compressors have been kicking in with this cycling. The fridge has now stopped working refrigeration wise with the door lights still working. I suspect it is a controller problem with the following part needing replacing: BOARD/BOX BUZZER CONTROL ASSY -###-##-####- Electrolux, Westinghouse.
Am I on the right track? Will fix myself or call a technician if required.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Something is causing the heavy current draw, likely a short on the control or a compressor that has failed. Unless you can see actual damage on the control board, I would not replace it without testing the compressor. Let me know what you find with the control board inspection.
