Replacement LED light module used for some Ikea, Maytag, and Whirlpool refrigerator models.
Directly Replaces: W10854032, AP6004678, W10809579.
- LED light module with white bezel.
- Approx. 2.5"L x 1.75"W.
*Some refrigerator LED lights operate in a series and tend to go out at the same time. Please be aware that it may take replacing multiple or even all LEDs within the series to completely resolve the lighting problem.
Failure Symptoms: One LED light is out and others are dim / flickering / strobing. Multiple LED lights are strobing / flickering / out.
How to Test: If one LED light module is completely out it can cause other lights on it's circuit to display lighting problems. Replace the LED module that is out. If the other affected lights are in the same circuit as the LED module that is out, they will likely be fixed once the new LED is installed.
If multiple lights are strobing / flickering / out at the same time, you will need to test them to find out which module is defective. In these light circuits there is one main LED board / module that takes the power and converts / sends it to the other light modules in the circuit. Typically, this will be the light module located at the top of the fresh food section. Through the process of elimination, start testing each of the secondary LED modules in the circuit to determine if one of those is the problem or if the main LED module is problem.
We would recommend starting with the LED module located in the freezer section (if this is one of the affected LEDs). The freezer LED module is commonly the first one to fail.
- Find the freezer door switch and tape it down.
- Locate and disconnect the freezer LED module, being careful to use the disconnect tabs on the plug and not yanking the module free. This would elongate/damage the pin connectors on the module and cause it to be defective.
- Use a jumper wire in place of the removed module to complete the circuit. If the other lights in the circuit start working normally, then the disconnected module should be replaced. If the problem persists, reconnect the module and move on to the next module in the circuit.
- When moving from the freezer section to the fresh food section, remove the tape from the freezer door switch. Then locate and tape down the fresh food door switch.
- Continue testing the secondary modules in the circuit to determine if any of them is the defective light. If you have removed each of the secondary LEDs, replacing them with the jumper, and the problem wasn't resolved with any of them, then the main LED board / module should be replaced.
