SOURCE: GE Fridge intermittent

I had the exact problem with my GSL25JFRFBS. It turned out to be a bad control board. The service technician that replaced the board said that the lights dimming on the on the ice/water dispenser is a direct indication of the control board being bad. This cost me $303.53 and my refridgerator is only a little over 2 years old. You can buy a new control board - WR55X10656 from GE online for a little over $157.00. From what I've found, this is an inherit issue with this model.

SOURCE: GE Fridge, Compressor not getting power from mother board

I asked that because in most cases, when it is a problem in a motherboard, it is likely a power surge or lightening. I can also tell you that when it comes to mother boards and component level, likelihood, it isn't transistors or anything unless it smells or looks burned. Most shops would just replace the motherboard and ship it as repaired becaue the cost of the IC isn't worth the possibility of something in another IC on the same board knocking iit out again. Short of plug and play, you have no real way of proving this board good/bad. You might try EBAY with your model number to see if you get lucky. I just got rid of an electronic stove because the control board went bad. New board was $150 with a possibility of it going out in 6 months. As I am not made of money, I now have a gas stove. I you could, please rate this as a fixya as I am just being honest and saving you time and aggrivation. Good luck

I had luck with a board with a clicking relay by replacing capacitors C29 and C30, which had bulged tops. Bravo, fridge works!

SOURCE: GE side by side refrigerator and freezer not working

Time to unplug the refrigerator. We need to check the compressor, start capacitor and start relay. If you do not unplug until we solve the problem the internal overload inside the compressor will be damaged. I am ready to help you on this just let me know, Sea Breeze

Hi. Our GE GSH25JSDD SS side by side drive just stopped freezing, cooling. The fan is on inside freezer and lights, and motor down on bottom, back is running. Drain is clear. Won't cool down.


I need someone to feel the top of the compressor. Is it cool, hot or too hot to keep your hand there? Usually on GE models like yours the=> WR55X11072 Main Control Board is the problem along with the start relay, overload and run capacitor. GE Refrigerator Model GSH25JSDD SS Parts

My fridge and freezer stopped working. Nothing's running. It doesn't cool or freeze. None of the mechanical parts are working. Only the lightbulb turns on. What can be wrong?


if removing the mother board made no difference to the fridge operation then it would be logical that the mother board is faulty
These machines do not like power surges( can originate many miles away)
have a technician check it out
