Question about Refrigerators

GE Profile Side-by-Side Refrigerator panel no longer works

The model number is PSC23MGTA. The lights on the panel still light up. But whenever the bar is depressed, the compressor turns off (if it is on) and the light of the selected item goes out. So if ''water'' is selected, the compressor would turn off if its on and the water light goes out. It started with ice sometimes not being dispensed. Now the entire panel is not working.

Is there any way this problem can be fixed myself, perhaps because of a blown fuse or something? Or does this have to be done by a registered tech?

    OK. Is that something that a tech has to deal with? Or can a person change it out themselves if they get the part?

    Yea the refrigerator worked perfectly fine as it held temperature until it had food in it.  Also it would shut down if you pressed any of the buttons on the ice/water dispenser.  The repair man from the warranty company came out and replaced the main control board and that fixed the compressor issue, but none of the digital readouts work or the dispenser.  The warranty company gave up and basically told me to pound sand and refunded my service fee.  NEVER GET SERVICE ONE for a home warranty company. Even though the refrigerator does not hold temp, the fact that the ice maker isn't working either voids their warranty for the whole refrigerator.

All of the lights in the refrigerator side are out.

Can you provide the model number found somewhere around the fresh food section door? When you say LED lights it call to mind the GE Monogram but it does not have LED lighting. Here is a link to that Service Manual HERE I need your correct model number to look up the wiring diagram. From looking over other diagrams the problem could be a bad door switch, loose connection or a defective relay on the motherboard. I will be here to answer any questions, Thanks Sea Breeze 792bf8b3-72e7-4ea7-b313-81ae6db327a8.jpg

Express Thaw comes on when refrigerator door is closed

We have a GE Profile side-by-side refrigerator which we purchased in 2002, Model PSS25NGNACC. Today we had a repairman come to investigate why the Express Thaw 3lb. light was on and could not be shut off. If shut off, it came on again when the door was closed and reopened. The repairman called GE and learned that this light was an air filter change indicator which turns on at some interval (2 years, they said, although we don't remember ever seeing this before). The air filter involved is for the interior of the fridge and is not critical. GE said that newer master control boards have this function disabled, since people rarely changed the filter and GE no longer makes them. I have read our user manual cover to cover and find nothing on this filter. I guess we just have to pay the $70 dollars to have someone come and call GE to figure it out. But, enough of that. To reset the indicator, simultaneously press the following keys on the touchpad and hold for 5 seconds until it beeps:

Adjust Freezer Temp (Warmer)
Express Thaw
Adjust Refrigerator Temp (Colder)

Lights and functions should return to normal.
