Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a GE Profile side-by-side fridge, model # PSS26SGRCSS. The unit is no longer cooling and the fan no longer operates. The interior lights do work, however. The control panel display inside the fridge no longer displays the temperature setpoint for either the fridge or freezer. The only light on the panel that works is the "hrs" display on the custom cool section. This part of the display blinks every 2 seconds or so. A close inspection of the unit also reveals a fairly quiet, cycling noise that lasts about 2 seconds and continues to repeat. It almost sounds like the compressor is trying to start up. When I open the refrigerator or freezer doors, the noise continues but it isn't as loud (almost as if one of the components no longer tries to start when the door is open.) The noise(s) originates from the back of the fridge, near the bottom. The fridge also had a clicking noise that originated from the back control panel, but that noise stopped after I removed the panel and re-secured the ground wires. Any ideas? Thanks!
The problem is the main control board on back of refrig . Relay bad and clicking . Have to replace the complete board .

I am experiencing the same problem with my GE fridge. We have already tried the Turbo Cool, but nothing seems to help.

Is there anything obstructing the fan area, ice build up ? It is normal for your freezer to get warm if evap fan is not working, it is essential for it to work :) A defrost cycle should kick on a timer or as needed (adaptive) and there should not be excessive frost buildup that it blocks your evap fan. I would have suggested you unplug your refrigerator for about 10 minutes and see if that resets your control board - if not, then you will need service - either replacing motor assembly or a faulty control board.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help. The control board was faulty. This is what I suspected but I wanted a second opinion before buying the board. "
Yes , the main control board is the problem . Also , make sure the coil roll behind the refrig , is clean . Sounds like the compressor relay on the board itself , is doing the clicking , trying to start a hot compressor , either caused by a compressor cooling fan not working , or the board . If the compressor cooling fan is not working , the board is still probably the problem . I have found , the board clicking , trying to start the fan . Replaced board , and no more problem .
