Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW

1 Answer

I got a new control board for GE profile fridge but the new one does not have pins for the J15 wire. Will this board work?

And now after reinstalling the old board the fridge does not work. It has power, as the lights come on, but the control panel inside the fridge is not operating.

Sounds like the wrong board. Also unplug the refrigerator if you put a new board in.

SOURCE: GE Arctica Profile getting too cold, temp set to 37 actual temp is 25-35

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!

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.

First of all - make sure you route the green grounding wire connector from the board to one of the screws, holding the board cover. If you leave it hanging - you can kill the board if the wire touches some of the board elements.

Second - check what kind of sensors you have in your fridge. There are three of them: one in the fresh food section, and 2 in the freezer.

If any of the sensors has black compound where the wires enter the white plastic cylinder, you'll need to replace it with the newer one: WR55X10025

Locations: One behind the damper cover in fresh food section (far left top corner)
One in the far left bottom corner (small cover with 2 white wires to it)
One (which most likely makes the problem) is on top of the evaporator (coil in freezer section, behind the lower back cover). Ifyou replace any of them - make sure to insulate the splice points with food-grade silicone.

Your dispensor board , has lost communication to the main control board . You will need to replace the board , which is located behind the refrig , behind the 8 " X 10 " , small panel . The pt # is WR55X10942 . You do NOT need to replace the board on the dispensor . The board behind the refrig , is , easily replaceable .

SOURCE: I have a GE profile fridge model # PFS22S1SBSS.

I am surprised you were able to do diagnostics without the service manual or do you have one? I think you need to test each thermistor per test point on the motherboard. If the damper door is electric controlled then you must locate the thermistor that appears to be whacking out on you. My manual is about the only copy I have of GE's Artica/Profiles and I see yours appears to be bottom freezer. I think the thermistor is not signaling correctly and may be located near the auto vent.

I have a freezer on top GE profile arctic fridge. It heated up for 24 hour then went back down and is now hovering at 7 freezer and 42 fridge. What is wrong?

This is a common problem with the GE Artica and Profile. The mother board=> WR55X10942 Main Control Board Compressor start components and condenser or evaporator fans must also be considered in the diagnostics. If you would like to do this yourself let me know and I will be glad to help you go throgh with the testing, Thanks Sea Breeze

Fridge and freezer no longer cold

Sounds like a bad compressor relay on the main control board . To verify , pull the refrig out and unplug . Remove the 8X10 small cover , to expose the control board . Look for the blue plug with 3 larger wires going to it and disconnect from the board . Looking at the plug , you will see : wire1 , wire2 , space , wire 3 . Use a jumper from wire1 to wire3 and plug the refrig back in . This will send power directly to the compressor , indicating the board is bad if the compressor starts . If it starts , remove the control board and look on the solder side just opposite the " black boxes " and look for a bulls eye ( pin in the middle where the solder has melted away from it . Resolder this pin . If no bulls eye , replace the main board as the relay is shorted internally . If replaceing the board , your model NUMBER is important to get the correct board . Only 2 boards but model number necessary .

GE Profile Refrigerator Ice/Water dispenser not working

Had the same problem. Pressed button heard a click, saw zeroes flash, then nothing. After some online search I found and solved the problem. Corrosion and condensation on the connector plug attached to the wire at the bottom of the freezer door. Remove plastic grill, pull out wire from under box. You'll find a plastic connector and possibly wet or corroded wiring. CUT POWER TO FRIDGE OFF FIRST. I cut away the white plastic connector then stripped and tied the wires together with wire caps. Taped them up too. Note which wire goes to which first. Mine was blue to blue, black to black, and red to white. Problem solved.

hopefully you have a service warranty. I have had me fridge for two years and have replaced the temp control panel twice thus far. serviceman coming AGAIN on Tuesday because now everything in the fridge is freezing. cna't get the temperature in freezer and refrigerator regulated properly. GE knows they have a problem...something in the computer panel board sticks. I'd give anything to be able to put this on the curb and buy a new refrigerator.

Digital display is blank in GE Profile fridge

Hi. Its either a bad motherboard or control board. I would check the control board for any obvious signs of damage to the board first. I've seen the control board go blank on the GE side by side and it turned out to be the motherboard. The motherboard is located behind a cover on the back of your refrigerator cabinet. You should have a new motherboard on hand at all times because they fail alot. Be sure to put a surge protector on your refrigerator. Good Luck, Mack
