Question about GE GSH25JSRSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Relay won't stop clicking

I was having problems with the dispenser in the door. I'd try to get water or ice and all I'd get is a dim light. I got around the problem a couple of times by taking some ice out of the packed full tray. Now the problem has worsened into a relay that won't stop clicking unless I turn the freezer control to zero. Other things I noticed along with the relay is that the compressor pulses slightly in time with the relay. The fan also nudges forward 1mm then back. The damper between the compartments also seems like it is trying to close even though it is closed already. I think the damper actually stopped doing that after a while. The unit is 1.5 years old.

    Board...
    J7-9 (orange) to harness J11 (gray) is 121.7-121.9 V.
    J7-9 (orange) to harness J8 (blk) is 2-9V (fluctuates).
    J7-9 (orange) to harness (blue) is 0V.

    Fan...
    white to red 1.5KOhms
    white to yellow no reading

    I only saw one fan. Unplugging the fan didn't stop the relay clicking. The click frequency is 1 per second. The clicking is coming from the relay just above the 3-wire harness at the bottom of the board.

    The gray wire I mentioned is actually brown and it the terminal labeled line so I'm seeing 121.7 to 121.9V between J7-9 and the line terminal.

    Turns out the problem was the board. The unit is working fine with a new board.

Matt, sounds like you have a main board problem here. The main board is on the back side of the refrigerator. If you are handy with a meter you can do some checks. Is the clicking relay coming from the main board? If it is, than it's more than likely your problem. First check the voltage from connector J7-9 (orange wire) to blue harness to the left, terminal marked line. This should have a steady 120V, no fluctuation. If you don't have this, replace the board. You want to make sure that the condensor fan motor and evap fan motor are not shorted. A shorted motor will take out the board. At the fan motors harness, with the power off, if you read less than 1K ohms between white to red or white to yellow it's bad. This is for both the evap and condensor fan motor. The part number for your board is. WR55X10543...Catriver..post back.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Your problems are the power board for sure. I have the same refrigerator and have read dozens of forums and advise pages looking for answers. If you let the problem countinue your fridge will completely stop cooling and all your food will be trash as has happened to me.

Symptoms: Fan in the back starts to make click or flopping sound as it tries to start up. Ice despenser doesent despense ice. water works sometimes. Eventually you notice your food defrosting partially and then refreezing as the defrost timer stops working which is controlled by the power board. Light dims and pulses when you hold the Ice despencer in. If you remove the light for the dispencer your water will work fine as long as the fan isnt making the clicking noise. Fan will eventually start up and run.

FYI GE customer Care is useless

Door dispenser stopped dispensing, starting making a constant clicking and now the entire fride isn't working


We had the same problem. Our frigerator is 1.5 year old. Everytime we try to dispence water or ice the dispencer clicks and the whole thing turns of. We had a GE repairman come by: the electronic board needs to be replaced: total cost $350. (cost of the board only: $150. We are considering disconnecting the dispencer by unplugging the board (according to the repain man the ice maker wil still work)or buy a new refrigurator (for sure NO GE!!!!!!)
