Just because the lid lock light is flashing doesn't  always mean the lid lock is at fault as you would be lead to believe by reading the manuals.


It will start flashing to basically let you know there is a fault of some kind, you have to check the error codes to find out what the actual faults are.


The shift actuator is the most common problem and it can test good with the optics test and still be the part causing the random problems.


There is a good chance the boards in the others where OK also and the actual problem was the shift actuators.

Bruther Willie speaks the truth! The shift actuator is the key to the VMW universe.

Shark user here, too. I picked up a refurbished unit pretty cheap and it's been going strong for about 18 months now. I had the McCullough Samurai model before but it puked out on me.

They always come out pretty easily, getting them back in can be a PIA.


Sometimes the oval rubber seal is not to pliable after being compressed in the opening for years. Some machines like Cabrio have a metal cage sort of thing that heater fits into. If you don't know it's there it can certainly cause some grief as you try to reinstall the heater.

Thank you for taking the time to respond, but I have the part. We are trying to determine where within the refrigerator it goes

The link posted above for the part also includes the IPL that shows where this part is located.
