I had the same problem as do thousands of people with this same fridge. The mother board is bad and needs to be replaced. It is easy to do yourself and the part costs less than a service call.: Unplug the cord from the wall, remove the panel from the back of the fridge (it is about the size of a small shoe box lid) You will see the mother board (ice, water, light, and compressor control unit). It is an electronic circuit board. There are about 5 or so plugs going into the board. Remove the plugs and the retaining screws and search Ebay for the part#WR55x10552 GE Power Control Board. I found one for $74, popped it in, and everything works better than new!

problems exist in its electronic control panel that is damaged, this problem should be solved by replacing one block electronic circuit in the control panel. damage is usually caused by a memory of the troubled program. actually if you know you can fix the electronic control panel of the electronic circuit itself, simply replace the IC EEPROM or memory alone. follows with Cristal oscilator usually must be replaced too

there's a computer board or mother board that's in the back of the fridge,pull it out away from the wall and when you look at the back you'll see a square cover with some screws holding it in place,this is where the board is,everything runs through this board and i've been changing alot of them,G.E. has had problems with the boards,unplug the machine,remove the cover,then with a pair of needlenose plyers you have to pinch in the tabs on the 4 white plastic holders,one at a time and when you pinch it pull on the corner of the board and it will slide off one corner at a time,after you get the first one you'll get the hang of it,when you have the board of the holders pull off the gray or blue color connector on the bottom and pull off the other bottom wire harness so you can move the board over and pop the new board into place on the holders,if you look next to the harness wires where they connect to the board you'll see like j1,j2 just look at it on the old board and then slide it onto the same number on the new board,they are almost in the same place but a couple are in different spots so just wire them the samw way you took them off,read the paperwork that comes with the board,it will tell you that if there's a wire in one of the harnesses,i can't remember what one i just know by doing it i think it's j1 and if there's any wire in the second hole to cut it,you have to cut the wire if it's in the hole that it tells you about,i'm sorry i can't remember the correct one but it will tell you on the instructions,i haven't cut one out in a while,usually on the older machines so you most likely won't have to do this,once you have the board in and grounded with the cover on plug it in and i'm 99 percent sure this will be your problem.the part number is the common board WR55X10942 and it's around 150 dollars.if you look at the back of the old board you might see the burn marks where the board failed.good luck with your machine and i hope i explained this to you so you will have no problems changing out the board.

Sounds like there is a defective or faulty control panel or control board. Contact your manufacturer or the dealer you just purchased it from.
