Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

GE profile Inverter

My inverter went bad. GE tech wanted to charge $750.00 to replace $550 for part itself. I found part online for $341.00 Tech told me simple install, but I cannot figure out to remove old inverter. There is hard copper line, not flexible, coming from compressor and I don't want to bend or break it.

Can you help. If so, can you provide either diagram or explanation how to remove old inverter. Once removed all it takes is to plug in system. Inverter model WR55X10504

SOURCE: Replacing copper tubing with a flexible hose for water connection

Go to a place that sells plumbing supplies.

There, you will be able to buy an appliance hose and the fitting which is usually used to plumb these into the domestic water system (a stop valve with a compression fitting for hard tube on one end and a thread to take the hose on the other).

If you're replacing you're old machine with a new one, all you'll need to do is to trim the existing tube at a convenient place (with the water supply turned off) and fit the new stop valve. New dishwashers usually come with a hose, and that just screws onto the threaded end of the new stop valve.

Hints: The hose seals onto the metal fitting using a rubber washer that just sits between the two faces. This system works really well provided you don't try to "help" it with PTFE tape or anything like that. Moistening the threads with a drop of water to lubricate them sometimes helps, but then all you need to do is to assemble the joint (checking the rubber washer hasn't dropped out) and do the plastic nut up finger tight. Check it for leaks when you first use the machine. If it's all right for the first five minutes, it'll be all right for ever.

If you're trying to put your old machine back in, but with a hose to make it easier to move, you will need a second fitting with the same combination of connections as you used to connect the hose to the household plumbing - you may be able to get one without a built-in stop valve, but if you can't it doesn't really matter. Proceed as before, but attach a short stub of the tube you trimmed out in stage 1 to the inlet of the machine (using the existing coupling) and make the new fitting off to that.

Most likely a fuse. Check for a fuse on the inverter itself or one inline with the plug. Usually you can screw off the tip of the plug and replace the fuse inside.

Hello davidweldon,

If the inverter board is bad, I would suggest that you replace the whole board unless you have a SMD (Surface Mounted Device) rework station, and a background in electronics. I have worked on TVs where people have tried to remove SMDs and it never is an easy thing to do, so I would again suggest that you replace the whole board, because all of the components are SMDs.

Now as to your question, I have seen on these sets the majority of the time it is a driver transistor that goes bad.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Need price for ge pfsf5njw model compressor electronic control unit


You have and machine control and a compressor inverter. So I assume you need the inverter that controls the compressor function/run. Part number is WR55X10685, I know you asked for a price but I would check you local parts store and the internet for better pricing for you needs. I don't sell parts, I install them and repair units. I give advise when I have time to help. Good Luck

Sarct, the question is, was the freezer side ok, if it was, I would suspect the damper not opening. If the freezer side was warm too, then I would suspect the evaporator thermistor not sending the signal to the board to terminate the defrost. Have the tech first check the continuity at connector J3. He should have 400ohms at J3-1 to J3-2 and the same at J3-3 to j3-4. If he doesn't get those readings have him check at the damper motor itself. If he doesn't have it there, replace the damper motor. If the damper motor passes all the checks then it's on to the evaporator thermistor. Have him check the resistance. At 5 degrees it should ohm at approx 36K ohms. The evap thermostat is redundant to the defrost operation. It's there as a back up in the event the evap thermistor fails to terminate the defrost. It's normally closed and will open at 140 degrees.

A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

Had similar problem, freezer was working fine, but fridge was warm, (68 degrees) It wasnt my damper, the mother board was fried, and so was the inverter board that told the compressor what to do, after having the inverter and two mother boards replaced.......I threw it out, biggest piece of ****, only three years old, and Sears would not stand behind it, even though I used their repairmen. I will never buy another GE product, or enter a Sears store again

How do I change the inverter board on a ge monogram 36" built in, side by side refridgerator ZISB360DX

it's pretty easy,pull off the old board and put the new board on the same way the old board came off,wires go the same place.are you sure that's your problem,GE has had bad mother board problems and everything that runs on that goes through the board,i've changed over 50 mother boards and have never seen a bad inverter board only bad mother boards but i'm not there to see why you say the inverter board is bad.good luck with your machine and changing the inverter board is easy but it's around 300 dollars,unplug the machine and open the cover and check the mother board it's also on the back,back wall with a few screws holding the cover on and check to see if there's any short marks on the board or the metal frame where the board is mounted,i would say that's your problem but like i say you must of checked it with your meter to know it's the inverter board.good luck

Not getting any water out of the dispenser, but its making ice

The water dispenser on my GE profile fridge stopped working for a couple days. The refrigerator and freezer temperatures have fluctuated over the past several months causing fridge items to periodically freeze and freezer items to periodically thaw. GE tech came today identified a bad circuit board, which he replaced for a cool $300. Ouch. Fridge is only three years old. Oh yeah, the icemaker also has a broken tab which causes it to jam every couple weeks. We have GE Profile appliances throughout our kitchen and they all work great except for the fridge :-( I hope GE engineers read this post. If so, get to work! LOL

Can I replace the LED light in my refrigerator?

I am not aware of any special tools or proceedues require to replace a LED light bulb, however,...... LED bulbs are generally very long life bulbs (read est. 10 year life, minimum). There is at least one manufacturer which has had some issues with their LED bulbs, and it is possible that GE may have outsourced some manufacturing, so we can not rule out a bad LED, however, it is actually more likely that you have a problem with the board or a switch, in which case the service tech will have to find out why your LED is not lighting.

GE Fridge intermittent

I had the exact problem with my GSL25JFRFBS. It turned out to be a bad control board. The service technician that replaced the board said that the lights dimming on the on the ice/water dispenser is a direct indication of the control board being bad. This cost me $303.53 and my refridgerator is only a little over 2 years old. You can buy a new control board - WR55X10656 from GE online for a little over $157.00. From what I've found, this is an inherit issue with this model.
