I had a very similar problem with our GE refrigerator. The main control board looked to be the culprit. I took out the board and did a visual inspection. Upon inspection I discovered that the (2) 470 micro farad capacitors were blown. I checked the power diode near these and it was still ok. I went to Radio Shack and picked up two 470 micro farad - 35V capacitors for and grand total of $2.60 and resoldered them myself. The refrigerator has been running great since. If you want to know more details email me and I will be happy to let you know what I know. I didn't want to pay $100 for a GE guy to replace a board either!

You have to isolate this problem. It could be one of three things. The compressor, the condenser fan motor or the water valve that feeds the ice maker and wtaer dispenser. Also if the high pitch sound is compared to that of a bird then it is definitely the condenser motor. To isolate the problem take the back cover off. LISTEN FOR THE HIGH PITCHED/HUMMING NOISE! Use a flash light and see if you can tell where it is coming from while it is doing the noise. Dont try this unless you know what your doing. Stop the condenser fan blade with the end of a hard object, but stop it gradually. Dont try this cause you might brake/bend the blade. But if you did and the noise stop then you figured out your problem. If not ythen disconnect the water valve. It has to doulble harness wires attached to it. if problem still exisit then it has to come from the compressor. Unless you have a warranty then theres nothing no one can do except change it. $300-400 job easily.

SOURCE: Have an Amana 85088 P1109007W
It may be in defrost mode. Look at the temp control on the underside for a hole with no
screw in it that appears to serve no purpose. Using a flathead screwdriver, turn the
mechanism inside the hole, (it is the defrost timer) and see if the unit comes on. If no
luck, then replace the start relay which is located under the plastic cover on the side of
the compressor. It plugs onto the compressor on three pins, if no replacement is available
they make a "universal" start kit for about 8 dollars which plugs onto these pins and has
good instructions. Model and serial number are usually inside the fresh food compartment
on the left side. The appliance parts store should have this item readily available.
Hope this helps :) remember to unplug unit before replacing any parts.

SOURCE: power seems to be on,
Try to unplug for 5-10 mins. Then plug back in. Sometimes the compter needs reboot. Just like your unit you contacted this site with. If this dont work i would look at the motherboard. But you need a tech for that. I hope this helps.
