SOURCE: control panel for freezer and refrigerator

Behind the back panel of the freezer section is the evaperator assembly. on the rh side of the evaperator is a sensor pack that is for the defrost cycle. there is a thermo fuse inside of this pack that is open. The fridge goes into an error state if this fuse is open. unplugging the fridge resets the system. the sensor pack will have to be replaced.

SOURCE: refrigerator not cold enough

Hi Tin Man!
You may have identified the problem with the frosted over freezer coils... are they to the point of being ice encased? In addition to cooling the freezer, this is also the primary source for the refriferator cold air... I would try defrosting the unit again, with it disconnected from power, try and go longer this time, with the doors open.
When you power back up, reset both temp settings to mid-range (5) and let it run at least 8-12 hours to stabilize... try to avoid opening the doors too much while it cools down, and see how it does.
If it still doesn't cool down sufficiently, you may have damaged air control port flaps, not allowing the cold air introduction into the fridge compartment.
This could also be a control/sensor issue, i.e.: the setting knob is malfunctioning, or the temp sensor might be bad, as could the electronic controller.... in other words the info source and control system that directs how the flaps are opened and closed might be at fault.
Refrigerators have become much more sophisticated since the advent of the microchip, but the basics still apply... just try and use the process of elimination to isolate the problem.

Hope this helps and good luck!

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

After plugging in refrigerator, compressor not running correctly (educated guess) runs for 10 seconds exactly, off for two minutes and keeps repeating this cycle continuously. Top of compressor warm

Not likely a defrost timer issue, but I suspect (1) a low refrigerant charge (2) If the fridge has been on its side, it should remain unplugged and upright for 8 hours before powering up or (3) If the ambient air temperature of the space it is in (garage, etc. or any place where it below 45 or so degrees), the refrigerant has likely migrated to and flooded the compressor. There's too much liquid refrigerant causing the compressor to slug. Allow the ambient air to warm before attempting to power up the fridge - or you could damage the compressor and lose the refrigerant charge.

Freezer runs for approx. four days with operation normal. Then the temp. panel of front door displays a symbol that looks like a short L followed by a period. Then the temp. gauge and the interior light...

From what I read, the "L." that you see on the control panel indicated that the controls have been locked. According to the manual if you hold down the "alarm reset" button for 3 seconds the "L." will disappear allowing you to control the temperature again. I don't as of yet know what is causing your overall problem though...

Pfs22sisss the temperature control displays quit working. unplug unit from the wall, plug back in and the displays work for a while then go out. also the condenser fan isn't running. when the compressor is...

Hello Rogerspray,

I understand that you are having a problem with your GE refrigerator the fan is not working and the power board is not working. The fan should always run when the compressor is on and sometimes when the compressor is off as it is to circulate the air.

You will need to replace the fan this can be removed and taken to any local hardware store and purchased as the are not expensive.

It sounds like you also need to replace your power board. I have located you one on Sears Parts DIrect it costs $91.33 and can be located at this link power board.

In-order to replace both of these items you will need to:
1. Turn off power
2. Remove cover panel
3. Disconnect quick connects
4. Remove item
5. Install new item
6. Replace wire to same terminals
7. Replace cover
8. Turn on unit and check

Replacing these items should take care of the problem that you are experiencing.

Thank you for choosing

Profile Arctica, Air flow fan runs but compressor dont kick in to make anything cold!

1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.
try this.

Ge zisw48dyb hot to touch on middle bar front between doors

Pull the refrig out and remove the lower panel . Check that the fan motor is working and no object is blocking the blade to keep it from turning . If your compressor is a top model , remove the top cover and check the fan motor and coils for dust coverage .

GE Model GSS25TGNB CC died

If you do not see frost on the inside rear wall of the freezer , Poll the refrig out from the wall , and remove the back panel covering the compressor . If the compressor is not running , Remove the 8" X 10 " panel , just above the large panel first removed . Unplug the refrig . Remove the control board , and on the other side of the board ( soldered side ) , look just behind the small black boxes ( located on the other side ) and look for a joint which has become unsoldered . Resolder this spot and reinstall the board . Plug the refrig back in , and see if compressor starts . OR , you can replace the control board pt # WR55X10656 .

Compressor & Evap. Fan both work for 12 hours then evap stops

I believe that because defrost is done by the mother control board this is why this is happening the part of the board that controls defrost is malfunctioning and the only way to resolve the problem is to replace the mother board part number WR55X10656 You can find the replacement board at these places below.

Convection oven fan continues to run even with door open and there is an electrical odor.

My JBP90 GE Profile convection oven had the same problem. The problem, in my case was caused by the door switch that controls the interior oven light. It also controls the convection fan and possibly the convection heating element.

In your case this may mean turning off the 220V double circuit breaker or unplugging the unit cord from its power outlet.
2. Open the oven door
3. Remove the two screws under the front edge of the stove cooktop on the far left and right
4. Gently raise the cooktop 4 or 5 inches and prop it open with a small cardboard box
5. Find the door switch wire and gently pull the switch connector off
6. Remove the switch by squeezing the two metal spring tabs toward the switch and pushing the switch out toward the front
7. Inspect the switch. If its like mine, it may look a little melted and smell burnt.
8. Find a new switch online or at your nearest parts distributer
9. Installation is the reverse of above steps.

Good Luck!
