Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
Either the start relay in the compressor is grounding electrically or the defrost heater is (most likely start relay). To replace this yourself is difficult as it requires technical knowledge. If you are located in California, bay area I could help you personally

Assuming you have a frost-free refigerator:
Is your motor-compressor running?
If so, check if you have ice in the freezer section; if so, maybe your defrost thermostat or heating element is kaput.
If the motor-compressor is not running, check in the back of the refrgerator if the defrost time is stuck open, bu turning clockwire the small test screw, with a 1/2inch screwdriver.

Refrigerators are not designed to run on a GFCI. Try a heavy duty extension cord to the fridge from a outlet that is not GFCI protected. If it still trips you probably have a short circuit in the compressor.

Welcome to FixYa,
Unfortunately based on your post ( has no power and nothing is running. I check the house fuse panel and no breakers are tripped. Also I pulled the fridge out and tested the wall outlet and there\'s power ) the issue is likely the 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 ( part # WR55X10942 ) at "repairclinic.com" or "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple for about $150 or so and come with a guide to install it, though it should be harness for harness & wire for wire.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Let me know how you make out or if you need further assistance and I'll help in any manner I can.
