I dont know how to locate these specs for you, modern refrigerators are much more efficient for a couple of reasons. Most new units have a Computer that controls the defrost cycle whereas older units have timers that defrost every 8 hours of on comp run time regardless of whether it needs defrosting. The new ADC (adaptive defrost control) can better monitor the frost on the coils to defrost less (in the defrost cycle it consumes 5x as many watts as when its cooling. Also most new refrigs, especially new GE units have much more efficient fan motors now also, however they too are computer controlled and when they fail they are expensive. Also the very high end new Counter depth models (in the $2500+ range) have a new variable speed compressor. This gives the compressor the ability to run at a low, med, and high speed, reducing even more the watts that will be drawn in normal operation when the fan motors are on low and the compressor too. If you have any other questions let me know ill be glad to advise.
P.S. Buy an extended warranty with any new appliance you purchase! Trust me!

Sarct, the question is, was the freezer side ok, if it was, I would suspect the damper not opening. If the freezer side was warm too, then I would suspect the evaporator thermistor not sending the signal to the board to terminate the defrost. Have the tech first check the continuity at connector J3. He should have 400ohms at J3-1 to J3-2 and the same at J3-3 to j3-4. If he doesn't get those readings have him check at the damper motor itself. If he doesn't have it there, replace the damper motor. If the damper motor passes all the checks then it's on to the evaporator thermistor. Have him check the resistance. At 5 degrees it should ohm at approx 36K ohms. The evap thermostat is redundant to the defrost operation. It's there as a back up in the event the evap thermistor fails to terminate the defrost. It's normally closed and will open at 140 degrees.

I am not aware of any special tools or proceedues require to replace a LED light bulb, however,...... LED bulbs are generally very long life bulbs (read est. 10 year life, minimum). There is at least one manufacturer which has had some issues with their LED bulbs, and it is possible that GE may have outsourced some manufacturing, so we can not rule out a bad LED, however, it is actually more likely that you have a problem with the board or a switch, in which case the service tech will have to find out why your LED is not lighting.

Yes, you have to cut the wiring as the instructions stated. Not all the models have to have wiring cut, so read carefully to see if yours is one that needs to have the wiring cut. If it is not, then you have another problem, and you will have to let us know what the origional problem was before you replaced the board. If your model requires cutting, you may have damaged the main board by not doing this. Unplug the refer and follow the instructions carefully and test to see if it works. Good luck, Appliance Specialists.

You should NOT have to turn the water off to replace the filter. I have the same refrigerator and it closes water line itself when you turn the filter and drop it down. If yours flooded, I can only imagne the valve that the filter opens when in place got stuck.
There is a valve on the wall behind your refrigerator which can be shutoff.
The old filter should be heavier as it would still have water in it. Turn them over one by so water can drain out. The one with the smallest amount of water should be the new one. I always use a sharpie and mark the filter with the install date... that way ou know when to replace and which is the old one.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick reply. I've been mopping up and cleaning for the past two hours. Your solution makes perfect sense, as there was no mention of turning off the water. I'll move it out in the morning and turn the water to the frig off and then compare the two filters. Thanks for some good practical advice, a sharpie! Why didn't I think of that. Take care and thanks again. "
