Gx5shdxvd03 Whirlpool french door
« on: May 17, 2018, 06:49:56 PM »

I've  got a tech sheet, is there a job aid that covers the damper operation. I have a complaint of no cooling in frige section.  I was out on another one weeks ago but it had Ice maker and I assumed the only damper was up on the Ice maker housing. It had a three door set up and has non dampwred outlets at bottom of drawer.

The manuals  and job aids I had were for other french drawer and showed a damper on bottom.

I just want to have something close  or exact before the call.

I still have trouble  searching  on drive by model number.

This unit has no icemaker in fridge. Thanks.

I couldn't find the service manual, but have seen quite a few of these fridges.  it has a fan in the freezer that blows air into the fridge.  The fridge temp is controlled by the damper at the top of fridge.  It should be open if its not cold enough in fridge.  If its open and not cold, either the freezer fan is bad or its frosted up (most likely)

It has the Jazz board that goes bad frequently.  If it is frosted up, I usually force it into defrost, if it goes into defrost then I know the heater and bimetal are good and I replace the jazz board.  If it doesnt go into defrost, I pull the panel and manually check the heater and defrost thermostat.  if one of them is bad, I replace it.  If they are both good, replace the board.

If the freezer fan isnt blowing, replace it.

Good luck

Thanks schleven, Is the jazz board a adaptive defrost board up in the control section.  I'm  using just my phone and it's  tough seeing the pictures.  I will check it out like you said.. I should have got the serial number..lol this looks like a older version. Thanks  for the manual.
