Last week we heard a loud pop come from the kitchen, after looking around we didn't see anything unusual, so we had no idea what it was, but now we see frost build up in the lower freezer section. Could something have blown in the Refrigerator circuitry?

Hi,

Here's the parts diagram for your model:

#27 is your Power Supply Module board, check that board to see if you notice any burnt spots on it.
#35 is your Main Control Board, do the same.

Both boards are located in the back of your refrigerator. You'll need to pull the refrigerator out from the wall, then unplug it, then remove the access cover that covers them boards.

Ok, it turns out my grandchildren left the freezer door slightly opened and it resulted in frost on the side of the door.......the wife cleaned off the frost and it's now ok, as far as the popping sound, we still haven't figured out where it came from.......

Ok, sounds good.

Can you please go into your profile account here and update your email address, the email address when you registered back in 2008 keeps bouncing back.:)

Thanks!

Hello Jake,
I have a question, do you know the parts needed to replace the rubber magnetic seal that goes around the doors and around the freezer drawer? And how to remove and replace them?

Thanks

Hi Engineerron,

Here's the refrigerator door gasket for your model(both doors use this same exact door gasket):
Refrigerator Door Gasket W10830274


Here's the freezer door gasket for your model:
Freezer Door Gasket WPW10714545


When you click the part link to each door gasket there is a HOW TO video that shows you how to replace them.
