Hi Urban Woman,
Unfortunately, your dispenser interface board has gone to appliance parts heaven and needs to be replaced. Fortunately it's relatively cheap. If I recall correctly, all you have to do to access the dispenser board is use a small flat screwdriver. There are 2 locking "tabs"/slots on either side and underneath the board (you will barely be able to see it, they're just that small).
Of course you already know that you need to unplug the fridge before doing any repairs so I can skip that part.
Insert your screwdriver into those slots and pry the bottom of the board out. Then grasp it with your hands and remove it completely. There are three wire bundles on it, remove them and re-install them on the new board. Then simply snap the new board into place.
This should take maybe 15 minutes to do... super easy job.
p.s. Here's a link to the service manual, but the removal of the dispenser board is not in it (everything else is, though, so it may come in handy later)
p.s.s. Since you're going to be unplugging the fridge for the repair, you ought to go to Home Depot and pick up one of these to plug it back into. Transient voltage spikes are most likely the cause of all your woes... including the main board that was replaced.

I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.
I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.

Check to see if there is any obstruction (object of any kind) in the ice cube mold area. If nothing found, you will have to replace the icemaker, as individual repair parts are not available.

If you are sure it is caused by the ice maker or if it is not it can be fixed. The only way an ice maker would leak like that is if ice is blocking the inlet tube and when the water comes on the water is spewed in a different direction than the ice maker. Most times this is caused by a slow leak in the water control valve for the ice maker side at the rear of the refrigerator. You can stop the problem by melting the ice in the fill tube with a hair dryer and keeping an eye on it until you see ice beginning to build up there again. That would indicate a slow leak in the water control valve that is not closing all the way when off. The other reason for large pools of ice in the freezer is a frozen over defrost condensate drain behind the cover in the rear of the freezer and would require you to unplug power and remove the rear panel. I will try to get some photos and a link shortly that covers that problem a lot more in just a few minutes. Sea Breeze

I have just solved my own ice dispencer frost problem.
1. The control pannel has to be removed. Look up under the pannel and you will see 3 small holes were the snaps lock in. Press a small screw driver in to the right most hole as you pry outward with a 2nd small screw driver. Unplug the control pannel.
2. Now you will see 4 screws, remove them and pull that segmant out.
3. Remove the 2 screws that hold the flapper in place.
4. Remove the 3 screws holding the solenoid in place.
5. Check the solenoid plunger for rust. If it is rusty, sand it down, clean it and the bore and spray paint the plunger. I use a 12 minute enamel and sped up the drying prosses with a hair dryer then cooled it in the freezer when no longer tacky. Apply a small amount of Pam to the piston and bore. Also Pam the pivot ends of the flapper arm and at the point were the pivot arm engages the solenoid.
You may have encountered a lot of mold as I did in complete shock. Use bleach wipes and dissasemble the flapper all the way for cleaning. It breaks down from the pivot arm and the rubber disc and foam back come appart also. When you have cleaned to your satisfaction, reassemble all small parts and replace in reverse order. Then remove the frost and the blockage were the ice comes from the tray and you should be all set.
