sjlobo, sounds like your defrost drain pan is frozen over or has some gunk in it. When the unit goes into defrost the water is running onto the freezer floor and out the front. Remove the lower bin and check the drain hole. You may have to remove the freezer back panel. If you can, just use some very hot water and some sort of baster to unfreeze the drain. Check this first, Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator Ice Maker Not Working

A couple things to check here. First see if there is ice in the tray. If so chances are the ice maker will need to be replaced however these are very reliable ice makers. If no ice in the tray pull up on the ejector blade (don't worry you won't break it) turn clockwise to start the ice maker thru a cycle. The ejector blade is the long white bar with fingers on it that run the length of the tray. Once it completes a cycle it should fill with water. If no water then either the fill tube is frozen over and will need to be defrosted or the water valve is bad.

SOURCE: Items sometimes freeze on refrigerator side of unit - model GSS25LGMA

It is most likely a bad damper motor.  This is where the cool air comes out into the fridge section.  On this model it is a fairly common problem and comes a whole assembly.  The part # is WR49X10091 and will cost anywhere from $100 to $122.  Knowing this model I would bet this is your problem.  If the damper is bad and stuck open cold air will just keep blowing in.  It is suppose to open and close based on the temp setting.  Let me know if you have any other questions.

the wires should be behind a cap that covers the hole for the water tube on the pack panel in the freezer.

SOURCE: re: Kenmore Top Freezer formed ice, main refrigerator area is not cooling

not easy to diagnose. the basic fault is that the defrost system has packed up.

check that there is continuity thro the defrost heater. there may also be a thermal fuse in series with the heater so check that also.

if those ok, then points to a fault in the main module

Everything is working but the electronics went out in it. Can't use ice maker although it's making ice, can't use any functions. Can't read tempetures


Newer refrigerators have a main mother board (computer board) that all parts and functions are channeled through. I have seen your problem happen with a defective mother board but it could be something else. Not even sure you have a mother board without a brand and model number.

Apazm1, unfortunately your main control board is the culprit for your woes. The part number is WR55X10552 and retails for ~$115.00. There's good news, though! It's readily available, (all the appliance parts retailers have them) AND they are easy to install. After you have the new part in hand, open the box and read the instructions CAREFULLY. These boards have been modified from the original OEM's and work on all fridges like yours. UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE! Pull it away from the wall, locate the aluminum panel that covers the computer and remove it (4 screws). The board is held in place by 4 white clip tabs. They poke through the board at (roughly) the 4 corners of it. Look closely at these with a flashlight... you'll see where you need to squeeze them with a pair of needle nose pliers to release them (squeeze the clip and pull that area of the board at the same time). Then remove all the connectors from the board. Now snap the new board into place and reconnect all the wires. This is where you need to pay attention to the instruction sheet! Look out for that white "jumper" in "pin #2"... if you don't get this right your fridge won't work right. Here's the reason I know it's the main board and not the board behind the dispenser area... the dispenser board is low voltage, the main board is high voltage. The dispenser board only sends a signal to the main board. From there, the main translates this input into a high voltage command for the component you have selected (water, ice crushed, cubed, etc...) The components that aren't working on your fridge are high (120) voltage parts controlled by the main board... ergo, failed main board. Hope this helps! Let us know how it goes, will ya?

GE Side By Side not cooling on refridgerator side.


Look on the back panel inside the freezer for ice beginning to show. Most times when this happens the fresh food section is the first to notice. Your refrigerator has a control board on the back. If not defrosting the air flow to the fresh food section is greatly reduced. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool icemaker


your refrigerator relies on a emitter and receiver control board to tell it when to turn on and off. this could be the problem. the guy at fixitnow.com sums it up best
  • What are the manufacturers thinking when they put out this overblown garbage? It’s as though they had a bunch of electrical engineers sitting around one day and said, “Oh, I know! Let’s design an icemaker that uses a bunch of flimsy, expensive electronics to replace a function that could be done more reliably and less expensively by a simple mechanical feeler arm!” Brilliant.

Freezer fan noise


What you need is a new updated computer main board. Thay are fairly cheap and easy to install. My GE Side By Side did the same thing and the new motherboard worked like a charm. I think that this is the one you need but you can email the seller with your model number and he will tell you which one to get WR55X10552 GE Refrigerator Mother Board fits WR55X10335s.gif GOOD LUCK
