SOURCE: Turn on fridge

Press the Ice Off button and the Freezer button together for thirty seconds. Set your temps at 36 for refrigerator and 0 for freezer.

if that doesn't work, press the freezer button and the energy saver button for thirty seconds and do the same thing.

SOURCE: GE French Door Frig control panel blinking temp #s

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!

SOURCE: GE frig is not cool

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa,

Unfortunately the issue with the controls not responding as well as not cooling is likely directly related to the power control board ( PCB) at the back of your fridge.

If you slide the fridge out and look at the back you'll see a square panel approx. 4"x5" held by four screws ( sometimes three ) remove it and you'll see this control...

It should be available at "repairclinic.com" or "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple for about $150 or so.

As for the owners manual you may be able to get one online if you "google" your model number. Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Let me know how you make out or if you need further assistance.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: My GE PFS22SISASS refrigerator' temp

Hi lukenl38,

That's definitely a main control board issue. The main control board sends power to your temperature display. You need to replace it or get it replaced. To replace that unplug the refrigerator and remove the 8 x 10 panel on the back. Remove the connectors and replace the board. Put the connectors back they will only fit where they belong. Follow the instruction sheet that comes with the part.

You can purchased the part here:

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Ge gfss6kkxass front panel doesn't work


This repair is too complicated for the homeowner..
About the only this you can try is to unplug the power cord
wait 3-5 minutes and restore power. If no results I would
go to the main motherboard then to the display board..
These are R/R (Remove & Replace) parts and can be expensive
to repair..

Ge profile 2004 open door and temp controls off shut door open they come back on light was staying on sometimes to bottom half of coils in freezor froze freezer working but temp in frig 50s on off fri


It is possible the refrigerator is low on Freon. You will need to remove the back panel inside the rear of freezer to examine the evaporator coils. If only a few rows have frost it will be time to replace the refrigerator. If the control panel in the freezer dispenser are coming on and off there may be a bad connection in the plug under the top left door hinge cover. Check that the plug is tight. Let me know what you see first behind the freezer wall, Thanks Sea Breeze

Ge Profile Stainless Steel Refrigerator panel replacement


You can replace the doors but you will think you bought a new frig when you see what they cost. Most come as an assembly and are very expensive.

Frig temp


Do a "temp" test. Put a normal thermometer in a glass of water and put it in the fridge overnight. Is the water temp matching the set point temp? It can be +/- 5 degrees (not an exact science sort of thing). But basically if the fridge is working OK and you just have a setpoint I'd say it's probably not worth the effort to change the thermistor, etc.
