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.

SOURCE: fix inverter

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.

good luck

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,

There's no specific way in the self-diagnostics that can confirm which specific part is bad. Actual tests must be done at least with the Hall Sensor and the motor. Please be noted that the wiring connections of the Hall Sensor and the motor with the inverter cannot be ruled out completely. It is prudent to make sure that the connections are tight and snug fit as absence of such can result in intermittent connection problem which will trigger the machine to prompt the "motor not rotating properly" warning.

The test needs to be done with the motor is the winding resistance between any two of its three terminals. The normal winding resistance is around 8 ohms between any two terminals. Any significant discrepancy in the resistance readings renders the motor inoperable and it must be replaced.

Measure between pins 1 (blue) and 4 (yellow) and pins 2 (red) and 4 (yellow) with the Hall sensor plugged into the inverter board. Rotate the spin basket by hand. There should be 12VDC pulses as the basket is rotated. If pulses are present, the Hall sensor is good; otherwise, it must be replaced.

It can safely and surely be concluded that the inverter is bad if both the Hall Sensor and the motor show no problem. If you want to verify, disconnect the Hall sensor plug from the inverter board. Check voltage on pins 3 (brown) and 4 (yellow) on the inverter board. There should be approximately 12VDC. If not, the inverter board is bad and must be replaced.

Please accept the solution should you find it helpful and/or informative. Accepting the solution will not stop you from posting comments or additional information. You can still communicate with the expert should you need further advice regarding the issue stated herein.

Backlight on my toshiba satellite m105-s3041 is not working. how to solve this problem?


Most likely the inverter board is bad. That's what provides power for the backlight, and it's a common failure. The lamp itself may have gone bad, but the inverter is much more often at fault.

It's not difficult to replace the inverter. The board is at the bottom of the display behind the plastic bezel. A few screws hold the bezel to the display back cover. Remove those, separate the bezel from the back and you'll find the inverter underneath. A couple of screws hold the board in and there are two cables plugged into it. Put the new one in place and reconnect the cables, reassemble the display and that should get the backlight operating.

I just did a search for a replacement inverter and there were quite a few sources. Here is one seller who has it at a very reasonable price. I don't know anything about the company; I just picked it because of the price, and since it has a good picture of the part. If you're not in the US, you can check online for sellers who will ship to your area.

Replacing the inverter is one of the simpler laptop repairs, and if you can use a screwdriver you can probably fix this yourself. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya.

1. It may be the ram sticks are not secure or seated properly.
2. It may be that the luminous tube that give the LCD it light has failed. In any instance you will need to have your laptop serviced by a tech. There could also be a bad inverter. This may be on the motherboard itself if so then a mother board needs replacement.

No power.


My 3 year Sceptre 27" died. Local TV tech said it was the power module. Charged $25 for the diagnosis and wanted $190 to fix it. Took it home, popped the screws and the module almost fell out. It's a simple plug'n'play!!! Found a new module on eBay for $65 shipping included.
