Question about GE GSL25JFR Brushed Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
For almost 2 years this fridge has worked great, but now we have a little problem. The only button on the front ice/water dispenser that works properly is the lock button. The others kind of work, by this I mean when they are pushed they switch to the selection. If the blower in the refrigerator side is blowing when a button is pushed it stops and then about 10 seconds later comes on again. I did it a few times to make sure that it wasn't coincidence. Also when you take a cup and push the switch to get some ice or water you get nothing. Instead of the light coming on like normal when the switch is pushed in, it comes on afterwards. Also when the switch is pushed in there is a clicking noise at the control board in the back of the fridge. I have looked at to see if any fuses were blown, but the fuse is ok at the bottom of the board. The clicking seems to be coming from the top part of the board. Sorry if this is a bit much, but wanted to include all details that I could think of. Bob
I had the exact same problem with the same model refrigerator. I wound up ordering the part from GE and was charged $69.95, there was no cheaper price elsewhere. The service rep couldn't give me a discount, but it's a lot cheaper than a service call (or replacing the food). GE should reconsider its 1 800 "GE CARES" phone number though. You get the feeling they don't.

The clicking noise is likely a relay that turns on the selected function. if you see some square shaped (about one inch by 1.5 inches tall) plastic parts on the top of the board, touch them while someone pushes a switch. if you can feel and hear the click, then this is normal. still do not know of your solution though.
