LOOK AT THE CONTROL BOARD AGAIN. LOOK FOR A BURNT OUT RESISTOR OR TAKE IT OUT TOTALLY AND LOOK AT THE CIRUITS ON THE BACK. IT WAS NOT UNCOMMON FOR THE MOTOR TO GO BAD AND DAMAGE THE BOARDS.

Freezer had ice buildup on coils


most likely you have a defrost problem,usually the defrost heater part WR51X10055 and thermister wr55x10025.you can unplug the fridge,remove food and shelves to get at the back wall,with a hair dryer melt the ice,put a towel on the freezer floor,when you can remove the screws that hold the back wall on remove the screws and pull out the back panel so you can get at the evap coil,now melt out all the ice,get another towel and stick it under the evap coil so the melted water can't go down the drain hole under the coil,the pan that catches the water won't be able to handle all the melted water from the coil and this way it won't flood out onto your floor,once you have the ice melted your fridge will run normally for 7 to 10 days so you can get the parts and still keep your food cold,if you already moved your food just keep it unpluged until you get the parts that are bad.when you have the ice melted you'll see the heater on the bottom of the coil,you have to remove the two phillips screws,remove the heater from the coil bracket,disconnect the two wires and check the heater with a meter,also on the top of the coil you'll see a white piece that kind of looks like a bullet,if this has a black ring around it where the wires connect to it you should change that too,the new part is all white,it's made better but if you're in there already and the heater is bad i would change the thermister too.you also have a mother board in the back of the machine part WR55X10942 that also could be bad but i'd check the heater first.good luck and hope this helps you out

Refrigerator not cooling


There is something odd about the description of the problem. Question: You say "when push in it will cool" When what is pushed in? Are you talking about the controll board?

Will not dispense ice


commonly what you will find on that model is the main control board on the back of the unit is the source of your issue, it begins like a computer virus where the unit will render the water in the door feature useless, next goes the ice delivery sys, then the unit does not defrost properly causing cooling issues. But before running out and getting a new control board go by this check list first: 1) make sure your ice bucket is properly seeded, 2) make sure the ice in the bottom of the bucket is not melted together if so empty good ice in seperate container and put back in freezer quickly to avoid melting then run hot water in ice bucket to melt remaining bad ice afterwards completely dry ice bucket and put good ice back in and see if it works properly, 3) make sure the auger mtr is not seized due to door being left open and humidity freezing in mtr gear.

Wont go into defrost have ohm the defrost coil it is good. is the thermistor control when it goes in to defrost


Hello,
No the thermister is the tempature regulating electronic thermostat, what you need to check is the defrost theremostat that clips on the evap. coils thats frosted up, teh thermister is white and sotra bullet shaped and the defrost t-stat is round with a plastic base and has 2 wires coming out of the plastic base,check those wires WHEN THERMOSTAT IS COLD for continuty (zero ohms) if your meter reads OL or if ya have the meter with needle and needle doesn't move that defrost thermostat is going to be the problem. Since heater is good if defrost t-stat checks good WHEN COLD the main control board on back is going to the problem.

Frigidaire refrigerator model # frs6r5emb8 wont get cold and freezer wont freeze. I replaced the filter and cleaned any and all dust out from the rear bottom of the refrigerator. Freeze wont get cold...


first off the freezer is cold but not cold enough?if the freezer isn't working right then the fridge is gonna be warm too,all it does is get cold in the freezer and the evap fan blows cold air into the fridge,that's it.i need you to do a few checks for me,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing around,if not you could have a bad evap fan motor,next from the bottom up remove the second bin from the bottom and touch the back wall,do you feel any ice or snow on the back wall.if so you have a defrost problem,possible computer board,defrost thermostat or heater.let me know what you find.one more thing did this happen after you cleaned it or did you clean it to try to see if it would help?

GE side by side not very cold on fresh food side


there is one of two thing that could be going wrong here ; you may have a bad evap fan mtr and control board or yourr damper is not opening properly. i would say you have the later of the two due to the fact the rf is still making ice. one thing that causes this issue is too much weight in the door causing the door to lean and not trigger in door light switch or the switch itself is damaged. the door hinge and camm assembly can be adjusted from the bottow using a standard socket set
