Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
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
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.

if you are technically capable and know how to troubleshooting electroics. the answer is yes.
you going to need a schematic. as far as I know these diagram is very hard to come by. no vendor want to let it out.

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.

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,
