There is a control panel reset for my GE Monogram side by side, Model # zfsb23dnss, It was "repaired" with a new board and now will not cool or freeze, HELP


There is no such button. What part # was on the replacement control board? Your model also has an INVERTER used to control the compressor... When the machine is turned "on" does the fan in the freezer and the fan near the compressor run? Is there any frost on the back wall of the freezer, or is it room temp? GE Refrigerator Main Control Board WR49X10152 .... GE Inverter Board WR49X10283 These two parts control compressor function on your fridge, the first two are the expensive parts called for by your model number- the second two are identical function, but cheaper part number!

Neff fridge/freezer has stopped cooling


pull the unit from the wall, remove the bottom back panel , see if the small fan is working ,if the fan is , there's probally alot of dust back there,unplug the fridg. and vacuum the area real good,use a flash light to make sure you get it all, if the fan is not working and the compressor is running the fan is the problem ,the fan keeps the compressor and coils cool so the freon can cool down so the unit works like it should,if the freon is hot ,the air the fridg.will be blowing will be hot. this should fix your problem, and YES its worth fixing.alittle p.m.saves alot of $$$$$$$$$

There could be a loss of freon(unlikely but possible), the start capacitor for the compressor is bad (most likely) or the thermal cut off switch on the compressor is cycling from the hot compressor.

A clicking sound was coming from behind my fridge and the temp display was not working. digital display. the light in the fridge comes on but the fridge is not working What could it be?


You have a bad main control board , located on the back of the refrig , behind an 8" X 10" panel . Part number WR55X10942 . This control board , usually clicks when the compressor tries to start , or when the compressor cooling fan tries to start . It also controls the display .

I have a GE profile side by side model PSS26SGRCSS. Lately the water and ice dispenser have worked only intermittently with a dimming of the lights. Tonight it stopped working and the temperature display...


Something has malfunctioned on *********** control board part number WR55X10942 This board controls most functions of the refrigerator. It would be simple to say change the board but this is the first time I have seen one affect so many different controls that I recommend that a service technician come out and make sure that something other that that board is not affecting the other controls on your refrigerator. Please let me know what the technician finds, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Control panel lights blink and beep, freezer fan cycles


The column between the doors being warm usually indicates that the compressor is running properly but the condenser fan at the bottom rear that cools the condenser and compressor is not running. Remove the cover from the back of the machine and verify this fan is running. It could have stuck from sitting for a period of time or something has gotten stuck in the blade during the move.
I am interested in what the fan inside the freezer is doing. You say 3-4 second pattern, is it running a few seconds then off a few seconds?
Please post back with the exact model number from the decal inside the fridge and I will look it up and see what I can come up with.

You should be able to see the fan spinning if you look under the frige with a flashlight to the back or feel air flow (tissue paper helps) coming from underneath it. As for the center column, if you mean the divider area between sides, that being real hot means the compressor refrigerant is overheated. It should be warm to touch not hot. Sounds like your condensor fan is out or packed full of dust bunnies and not spinning. The compressor will overheat and "trip" the thermal overload on and off so you do need that cooling fan. All the underside of the frige needs to be clean and clear of hair, pet fuzz, etc. in order to cool properly. The fan is likely out of warranty but they are cheap and easy to replace by a homeowner.
