Question about GE PSS27SGRSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE Profile pss27sgrss has a bad main pc board

Initially the water/ice dispenser stopped working. Then a few days later the freezer wasn't working. I hit the temperature down button and it seemed to reset itself and then worked. However, a few days later both the freezer and refrigerator had stopped cooling and now the only display that does anything shows a blinking HRS. None of the other temperature buttons work. If you listen closely, you can hear something that sounds like a system that keeps trying to start. The lights come on fine. I had a Sears repairman come out and he said it would be about $500 to fix it and since it is 8 years old he recommended just getting a new one. He said it is a bad main PC Board. Would you agree?

Yes I would agree that you get another refrigerator! The GE PSS27SGRSS is an Artic/Profile model and people have had nothing but complaints about the motherboard problems. I recommend you buy something that has no motherboard or electronic defrost. The best refrigerators out there are ones that have the simple defrost timer and no electronics, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: GE Profile Refrigerator Ice/Water dispenser not working

Had the same problem. Pressed button heard a click, saw zeroes flash, then nothing. After some online search I found and solved the problem. Corrosion and condensation on the connector plug attached to the wire at the bottom of the freezer door. Remove plastic grill, pull out wire from under box. You'll find a plastic connector and possibly wet or corroded wiring. CUT POWER TO FRIDGE OFF FIRST. I cut away the white plastic connector then stripped and tied the wires together with wire caps. Taped them up too. Note which wire goes to which first. Mine was blue to blue, black to black, and red to white. Problem solved.

Not getting any water out of the dispenser, but its making ice


The water dispenser on my GE profile fridge stopped working for a couple days. The refrigerator and freezer temperatures have fluctuated over the past several months causing fridge items to periodically freeze and freezer items to periodically thaw. GE tech came today identified a bad circuit board, which he replaced for a cool $300. Ouch. Fridge is only three years old. Oh yeah, the icemaker also has a broken tab which causes it to jam every couple weeks. We have GE Profile appliances throughout our kitchen and they all work great except for the fridge :-( I hope GE engineers read this post. If so, get to work! LOL

Ice & Water Dispenser Suddenly Dysfunctional; LED lights, too!


Cory, you sound like you have a bad water valve as well as a bad control board for your dispensor. If you've had any storms in your area in the past 4 - 6 weeks, it's very possible that the storm took both parts out.

We have parts for GE as well as mots other major brands, so please give us a call with your complete model number and we will get your parts out to you right away!

We hope this solves your problem and we look forward to being able to assist you with future issues.

Have a great evening.

How do I remove the ice/water access panel on GE Profile fridge? The ice dispenser, water dispenser, and all lights stopped working.


First, open door to freezer, while pushing in on the ice dispenser trigger look at the lights in the freezer and see if they go dim, if they do then the "main board" on back of frig is defective. This is a common problem with these boxes. Its somewhat uncommon for the ice, water and light to go out at the same time, its possible, but not common.

Another way to tell if main board is bad is when you do as stated above and you hear the evap fan stop then main board is for sure bad.

Let me know what you find out. If main board then I will need model & serial number to give you the right part number for main board.

If none of the above occur, then advise and I will tell you then how to pull dispenser apart.
