Question about Refrigerators
I have a GE side by side and it is equipped with a digital temp readout and touchpad control. The problem is: the red L.E.D. (0-9) display is out, and the temp set touchpads do do adjust the temperature. I replaced the control board and this made no difference.

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........
In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.
Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.
Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)
Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

SOURCE: Problem with ice dispensing. I
I am not sure if I understood the problem. Please bear with me as I try to provide solutions to common symptoms.
The Touchpad if it is not dispensing any water the issue may be the inlet valve may no longer be working correctly. This could be the faulty valve or no voltage is going through it cause it to not work properly. You may check the wiring for this one. The other is that the ice may have frozen.
The ice dispenser may not be dispensing ice because of a buildup of ice in the screw like piece in the dispenser. This prevents movement thus preventing ice to be dispensed. This may be caused by the freezer not cool enough since some ice will melt and eventually will turn to ice again but build up on the screws.

SOURCE: Hello I have
Roll the refrig out and determine where the clicking noise is comming from. If it is form the small rectangular cover on back, replace the main board (WR55X10942) located under it. If the clicking is comming from the compressor area (at the very bottom, behind the cover which goes all the way across the bottom of the refrig) then replace the relay (WR07X10086) and overload (WR08X10061) located where the wires attach to the compressor, and for good measure, the capacitor (WR62X79 ). (located just to the left of the compressor)

HI has the temp held steady at 28? And do you notice if the fan in running in the freezer if you open the door do you hear a fan running, if you do not, then the problem is a bad control board located in the rear of the refigerator behind an small access panel this control board runs about 175-200.00 to buy.
