Peace Friend,
ngafm At your service!

you have a short in the board an have to decide is it worth doing this investment for this fridge.
How old is the appliance?
Well, this is a top of the line fridge, so you would probably make the investment to repair it!


How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!


You will be fine
Bless You ngafm

Ge pss26sgpass keep in defrost error code bc ?????


That is actually a "tc" error code.


This error means that the display board isn\'t communication correctly with the temperature control sensors which is why it\'s giving the error. It may stop cooling so you need to keep an eye out. Either way, try to unplug the unit for 5 minutes (don\'t plug it in early it\'s hard on the compressor). Plug it back in and see if the error goes away. If it doesn\'t, you need to order and replace your display control board because it\'s just not working correctly unfortunately.Here is the board to order.

Hi, I have a GE side by side GSS23LSTA refrigerator The last few days it has been running constantly. The refrigerator side temperature is fine at 35 degrees, but the freezer temp is staying at around 12...


Hi Mark and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Touch the front of the unit where the doors close and feel if it is very very warm to the touch. If it is very warm to the touch... here are the prime suspects:
1. condenser coils covered in lint
2. condenser fan not running or running slow.

An easy way to determine if there is a condenser fan or coil fan problem is to simply direct a floor fan at the base if the refrigerator. If it cools down substantially in an hour.... there is a problem with the coils being clogged or the condenser fan not running. If that makes no difference... before opening the back of the unit... inspect the back wall of the freezer compartment for any signs of ice build up. If you see ice-build up.... unplug the unit.. remove freezer contents and direct that fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. Then return the unit to normal service.... If the temps come down to normal... for 2 - 3 days then start creeping up again... you have an automatic defrosting problem.

Forgot to mention... make sure the evaporator fan is running at full speed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

GE PSC23MGNA refrigerator. No display light for


Sounds like you have a bad main control board . The original pt # is WR55X10552 . The replacement board is WR55X10656 . Your original board , is on a recall list , and GE should come out and replace under an extended warranty .

Ge side by side (psh25sgsa 3 yrs old) and the ice melts every few weeks in the freezer. Empty out the ice and everything is fine again for a couple of weeks. Checked the coil underneath and everything is...


Yes , your main control board is on the recall list , however , that is not the problem . The problem , is the #4 and/or # 5 thermistor . The #4 , tells the control board , the temp of the coils , when to defrost , and when to stop defrosting . The # 5 , tells the control board , the freezer temp . Both thermistors work together , relaying information to the board , to act on . The # 4 , is behind the inside rear freezer panel , clipped on the top , left side of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . The # 5 , is located behind the bottom freezer crisper , slid inside a small housing , also with 2 white wires going to it . The part number for each thermistor is WR55X10025 . I would replace both thermistors .

Evap fan stops running/low cooling, Unplug Frig Evap fan runs


Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.

Fridge not cooling, intermittenly working... if we unplug it.


3 possible reasons this is happening. The control board part number
WR55X10172 Is defective. or the defrost heater or defrost thermostat. This also can be caused by the main control board part number WR55X10656 The first photo shows burn marks on the back side of the control board. We need to unplug and examine the main control board on both sides. You can visit my website and enter the model number into the model and search feature. That takes you the a list of photos of your refrigerator. You also can email me or call. My email is appliancepartsse@yahoo.com and my sites are listed below, Thank You Sea Breeze

Ge eterna series fridge side not working


Could you look inside the freezer compartment and after unplugged remove the panel to see if ice is blocking the vent to fresh food compartment. If there is ice it could be something is not working with the defrost cycle. Your refrigerator has a control board that handles these processes but other factors can cause ice buildup in vent. Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE side by side - upper freezer warming once a week then freezing


Had the same problem. Bottom of freezer was about the right temp but the upper part was way too warm. Fridge side was fine. Ice maker stopped making ice - it wasn't broken, but it won't run through its cycle if the temp is too high. Cubes already in storage hopper melted and water refroze as it ran to lower, colder part of fridge. Problem: Fan controller for freezer compartment was faulty. The fan itself was fine. Fix: GE replaced the main circuit board that controls everything on this model, including the freezer compartment fan. Once that was done, temp returned to normal, ice maker is happy again. The board had undergone several revisions from the factory installed one (could tell this by comparing the part number on the old and new boards - they increment it when they revise it.) Bad news: the part/labor were expensive and of course failed after the warranty ran out. Good news: the board is now guaranteed for 5 yrs. (Why wouldn't the factory-installed board ALSO be good for five years instead of just one? It's not like the replacement boards are made better.) Labor is covered only for 90 days though so it won't be free if they have to come back after that.
