3-year-old refrigerator wouldn't cool, digital temp. control stopped working
The digital display numbers (0= off and 7=coldest setting) controlled by the ECB would continually be replaced by straight lines, and the refrigerator would stop cooling. I tried unplugging it for a while. After plugging it in again, it worked (the digital display came on, I set it to "4" and it reached the proper temp), but the problem occurred again the following day, and then it stopped cooling entirely. I ordered the ECB, and it arrived in 3 business days. I watched the installation instruction video, took my time, double-checked the vid a few times to make sure I was doing it correctly, and replaced the ECB by myself in less than an hour. The refrigerator has been running without problems for 3 weeks now. My fridge had a different light bulb configuration than the one in the video, but everything else was the same, and it was a simple repair.

Freezer box frosting up. Refrigerator not cold.
My son (who does HVAC, but not appliance repair) did some investigating by taking front and back panels off and determined that the evaporator coil was freezing over because the defrost wire was not heating up. He and his girlfriend did some real-time internet searching for diagnostic info because NO control diagram was included with the refrigerator. He determined the problem was most likely the electronic control board. Ordered and installed a new board and the refrigerator is back to working fine. Took about 2 hours to diagnose the problem and 1/4 hour to actually install the control board. Kind of disappointing that this control board failed when the refrigerator was less that 4 years old.

Refrigerator would stop cooling intermittently, control panel would not display temp settings until power was reset.
The video on the part select website with the Canadian gentleman was absolutely the best! My wife and I watched it and was able to accomplish the replacement with no surprises or issues. One tip that we could add is that the orientation of the temperature sensor was not specified in the video, but the slot seemed to work better for one orientation versus another. It has been a couple weeks since the repair and the refrigerator is working like it did when we first purchased it.

Unit would not defrost
I checked the element and the thermostat and determined the problem to be the control board. I simply followed the instruction in the video. Everything went well until the last step, the video said to push the freezer down button. When this did not work I refered to the written instructions which told me to push the up button. That did it. Job complete. The unit is working as it should.

Fridge running warm
The fridge would occasionally run warm, requiring me to turn it off and defrost the evap coils in the freezer. I found an online video that demonstrated the entire process of replacing the control board. The fridge model in the video was different than mine, so it took some time to figure out how to remove the panel. Once that was done, the rest was easy. The only tool required was a flat-head screwdriver that was used to push in the tabs holding the panel in place. The circuit board took more effort to split in two than I had realized, and I had to be careful not to bend any of the components on its surface. The whole process took less than 30 minutes, and the fridge is working properly now..

Water leaking under right bottom small pool of water about every two daye
For model number MBF1958XEB1
PartSelect logo
Hi Pauline, Thank you for your question. If the leaking is coming from underneath your refrigerator I would suggest first checking the drain pan for cracks or if it is over filling. If it is over filling then you may need to take a look at the defrost thermostat and heater in your appliance. You may also want to look at your water lines and your water inlet valve and make sure that they are not the parts causing your leaking. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Hi Seante, Thank you for your question. If the refrigerator will not come on, you will need to check the capacitor and the electronic control board. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

My Whirlpool problem ..freezer working fine but refrigerator stays warm..can you help me with this problem...i cleaned all the coils and back. fans working in the freezer and fan by the compressor is working.
For model number GB2FHDXWS06
PartSelect logo
Hello Richard, thank you for your question. We would recommend checking the damper, Damper Control Assembly Part Number: PS11750106, to be sure its opening enough to allow the air into the fridge from the freezer. If the damper and damper motor and opening and closing properly, the issue is probably the electronic board, PartSelect Number PS11755733, which would have to be replaced. I hope this helps!
