Whirlpool gold side by side refrigerator
We have a whirlpool gold side by side refrigerator. Model #GS6SHAXML00. MFG date 12-03. Unit works great, however it intermittently shuts off. Only the fridge side shuts down lights and all. The freezer side stays on. All we have to do is pull it out and unplug and plug back in and it comes on. I am trying to figure out what would be the faulty part that would cause this type of problem? Thanks, Justin

The problem is your control board, it will need to be replaced.
Here's the control board for your model you can order:
Whirlpool W10135090 Electronic Control Board - AppliancePartsPros.com
Unplug your refrigerator first! Just pull your refrigerator out from the wall and take off the lower back access panel and you will see the control box on the right side.
Its #18 here, located in the back of your refrigerator inside the control box#19: Unit parts for Whirlpool GS6SHAXML00 - AppliancePartsPros.com
Let us know how it goes.
