How do i determine if the main control panel is bad on my GE FUF 21SVDRWW freezer? the coils are clean/not frozen. When I unplug and reset the freezer runs for a short time brining the temp down. .

After a while the alarm rings for hi temp and comp is not running. Reset - same results. I can repl. the panel myself but i do not want to spend $ if it doesn't fix it.

If the compressor is running yet the suction (larger pipe) on the compressor is not cold, or if it is frozen, you probably have a refrigerant leak and need refrigerant.

If you have cold temps and humidity sometimes the coils freeze up and you need to unplug your refrigerator until the ice on the coil melts, clean the coils and plug in, you may overflow your condensate pan, so you might need a towel if it does.

Hi there. My GE GSL25JFPD side by side has major issues. The evaporator has completely frozen over. We called a technician twice. The first time he replaced the main electrical board. This fix lasted about...


Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board .. Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10055 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .
If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also .

IF the evaporator is frozen then the defrost is not occuring. Probably the heater or the defrost thermostat.

Pull refrig out from the wall and unplug . Remove the 8" x 10 " panel covering the main control board . On this board , unplug the blue plug with 3 larger wires going to it . The sequence looks like this : wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Use a piece of wire , with both ends stripped about 1/4 " , and insert an end into wire2 and wire3 . Plug refrig back in . Look inside the freezer at the back bottom , and see if you see a red glow . It may take about 30 seconds for the glow to appear . If no glow appears , the defrost heater located at the bottom of the coils ( glass tube ) is probably shorted . Pt # WR51X10042 . Also replace the defrost thermostat Pt # WR50X10068 . To access these parts , the inside freezer panel has to be removed . If you do get a red glow , then the main control board is bad Pt # WR55X10656 .

I have a 3 year old GE side by side that isn't cold.


Sounds like a defrost problem or an evaporator fan problem . I would suggest you have a professional check it for you to find the problem and then do the repair yourself . If the fan isn't working , probably a main control board problem and not the actual fan ,which is costly . Also , possible thermistor problem which takes experience to diagnose . Buying parts without knowing which is bad can be realy costly on GE refrigerators .
