Question about General Electric Refrigerators
GE profile Artica PSC23NSTA side by side unit - The frigerator was not controlling temp well (generally displaying colder than set point- wild fluctuation) and occasionally relay on mother board clicks at frequency of about every 2 secs. Called GE they said unplug unit and allow board to reset -- tried but no help. There is a fan whirl sound from the upper right hand side of the fridge compartment and the lights dim when the relay clicks.

Wow, so you dropped some money into it, eh? I would take a look at the damper door asslb(DIFFUSER). located at the very top left of your refrigerator section in back. It has a motorized door that opens and close's and it may be stuck open. More than likely it is broken and needs to be replaced. GOODLUCK!!!!
FYI: All your cold air in your refrigerator comes from your freezer!

I had the exact problem with my GSL25JFRFBS. It turned out to be a bad control board. The service technician that replaced the board said that the lights dimming on the on the ice/water dispenser is a direct indication of the control board being bad. This cost me $303.53 and my refridgerator is only a little over 2 years old. You can buy a new control board - WR55X10656 from GE online for a little over $157.00. From what I've found, this is an inherit issue with this model.

Yeah, same problem. There are two capacitors that seem to be prone to going out. You can replace the main board, or (if you can solder) replace the two capacitors with slightly larger ones (radio shack mdl number 272-1030 works) just remember to bend them away from the heat sink if you go that route.

14 vac indicates a bad motherboard.Clicking could possibly be a bad start relay on the compressor.
Relays are inexpensive. I would replace the relay and hope for the best. Next step would be the motherboard that GE has had trouble with from day one

Yes , the main control board is the problem . Also , make sure the coil roll behind the refrig , is clean . Sounds like the compressor relay on the board itself , is doing the clicking , trying to start a hot compressor , either caused by a compressor cooling fan not working , or the board . If the compressor cooling fan is not working , the board is still probably the problem . I have found , the board clicking , trying to start the fan . Replaced board , and no more problem .
