Your problem could be as simple as a blown fuse. Most R60's have a small buss fuse mounted on the Ignition Control Board. Replacement fuses are available at . If the fuse checks OK then test to see if the control board is receiving power. If power is going in but not going out then, naturally the board is defective and must be replaced. An easy fix!

    ALSO, if your heater is equipped with a thermostat, troubleshoot the part to see if it is functional.

It's likely a bad glow plug relay found on the left fender well. You may have bad glow plugs as well. You should hear a faint click when you turn the key to glow psn. . Open the hood and have someone glow it. The click should be abvious and the wires will run from the relay to the glow plugs. also obvious.

My gss20ieta ww side by side fridge is warm but the freezer is nice and cold...I hear something running, but if there is a fan where would it be located?? What does the damper and thermistor assembly do?

Most likely , the problem is a bad defrost heater , pt # WR51X10101 , but I would still suggest going thru the motions to make sure . The heater runs about $45.00 . Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10055 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils . If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to selected temperature

My Goodman furnace wont light.

Open up the unit to get to the control board. Make a short jumper wire and disconnect the wires going to R and W terminals on the board. Connect the jumper to R and W. Depress the door safety switch. The circuit board should indicate a call for heat and the furnace should start. If it doesn't, look for a fuse that may have blown either on the circuit board or in the wiring. If the unit started by jumping the W and R but does not when you reconnect the thermostat, you either have a bad thermostat or a bad thermostat wire.

The back wall of my fridge is freezing up... I had a repair man replace two sensors and to no avail then I replaced the mother board and that did not work either... what now?

Unplug the refrigerator . Remove the motherboard cover . Remove the blue plug with large wires from the motherboard . Looking at the plug , you'll see wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Using a short piece of wire with both ends striped , insert the ends into wire2 and wire3 . Plug refrig back in . Look in the freezer at the bottom of the rear wall , for a red glow . May take several min . If no red glow , replace the defrost heater AND the defrost thermostat (bimetal ) . If red glow , bad control board .
The defrost heater and bimetal , are behind the rear lower panel inside the freezer section . The heater is at the bottom of the coils , and the bimetal is clipped on at the top of the coils ( blue and pink wire ) .

Back wall freezes up on freezer side while fridge side is too warm. fridge temperature stays between 60 to 70 degrees

Is the freezer fan working ? If not , control board probably bad . Pull refrig out from wall and remove power . Remove the 8" X 10" panel and you will see the main control board . Remove the blue plug with 3 larger wires . The sequence is : wire1 , wire2 , space , wire3 . Using a short piece of wire with both ends stripped about 1/4 " , insert the wire into wire2 and wire3 . Plug refrig back in . Look in the freezer at the bottom rear for a red glow ( may take a minute or so ) . If you see a red glow , the main control board is bad ( the board you unplugged the wires from ) . If no red glow , then disconnect power to fridge , remove the jumper , and reinstall the blue plug and the panel .
Remove the food from the freezer section and remove the rear freezer panel inside the freezer . There you will see a round 1 " disk , clipped on top of the coils .Pt # WR60X10068 Defrost thermostat . At the bottom of the coils , you will see a heater . Pt # WR51X10042 Defrost heater . Replace both of these as the heater gets hot , and cuts off by the bimetal . he heater only has a screw on each side attaching it to the coils , and the bimetal just clips on . Easily repairable .

On the back of the refrig , you'll see a panel about 8" X 10" . Disconnect power to the fridge . Remove this panel , and you'll see a main control board . At the bottom , there will be a blue plug with 3 larger wires going to it . Disconnect this plug from the board carefully . Looking at the end of the plug , you'll see wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , with both ends stripped about 1/4 " . Insert one end into wire2 and the other into wire3 . Reconnect power to fridge . Check inside the freezer at the bottom , for a red glow . No red glow , heater or defrost t-stat(bimetal) is bad . If you get a red glow , either that main control board is bad or the #4 thermistor (1" white torpedo looking piece clipped onto the top of the coils)is bad (it tells the board the temperature of the coils ) or the #5 thermistor , located at the defrost drain . This tells the board , the freezer temperature . The way to check thermistors , is either a control board tester , or resistance test thru the wires at the top of the control board . I would go into this , but , not enough time , unless you submit a thread on how to check thermistors thru the main control board .

Problem with the unit not defrosting. How do I know which part is the problem? Thermostat, heater and Bracket assembly or mother board. Is there something else I should be looking at? Thanks Dan

you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model
