Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

I have a GE profile side by side model PSS26SGRCSS. Lately the water and ice dispenser have worked only intermittently with a dimming of the lights. Tonight it stopped working and the temperature display module went blank. Fridge and freezer stopped and there was clicking in the back and no fan.Seemed liked the kitchen lights dimmed with each click. When I pressed the temp control panel it flashed. I played around with all controls and everything started working again. Problems seem to be coming more frequently and am afraid it will shut down for good. Please help and thanks!

    Tonight it went down again for good. Temp control board is out and no water or cooling. Pulled the main board and no burn marks but I am still betting on that as the problem. Will get a new one and switch it out. Thanks!

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 .

Something has malfunctioned on *********** control board part number WR55X10942 This board controls most functions of the refrigerator. It would be simple to say change the board but this is the first time I have seen one affect so many different controls that I recommend that a service technician come out and make sure that something other that that board is not affecting the other controls on your refrigerator. Please let me know what the technician finds, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Had the EXACT same problem with another GE side-by-side. Repairman just left and it was the main board that had to be replaced. It took him all of 5 minutes to replace and cost us $318. If you are handy, it is a repair you may be able to do on your own if you can find the correct model number and order it.

How do I remove the ice/water access panel on GE Profile fridge? The ice dispenser, water dispenser, and all lights stopped working.


First, open door to freezer, while pushing in on the ice dispenser trigger look at the lights in the freezer and see if they go dim, if they do then the "main board" on back of frig is defective. This is a common problem with these boxes. Its somewhat uncommon for the ice, water and light to go out at the same time, its possible, but not common.

Another way to tell if main board is bad is when you do as stated above and you hear the evap fan stop then main board is for sure bad.

Let me know what you find out. If main board then I will need model & serial number to give you the right part number for main board.

If none of the above occur, then advise and I will tell you then how to pull dispenser apart.

GE profile side-by-side water dispenser works, no ice though


Ice maker bad or the ice maker water valve mounted on the same bracket as the dispenser is bad. These frigs are prone to bad ice makers after a few years.

GE Profile Artica - Water & ice dispensor not working.


This could be as simple as the door switch or as complex as the dispenser control board. I would try the door switch first. When the door is close it turns on the dispenser controls. If the contact is defective in the door/light switch then this happens. Unplug remove the door switch and mark wire locations. 1 Powers the lights and the other powers the dispenser. and one is the power itself. Sea Breeze

Makes ice fine but doesnt dispense


Sounds like the dispenser auger is frozen up or stuck. The lights dimming happens because the voltage drop from the stuck auger's motor when you try to use it. Remove the ice machine and clean it. Do not try to take it apart!
Sometimes, the ice machine will fill too much with water and get stuck. Often, it's because the cabinet isn't level.

Well, the solution to this problem was posted in this thread
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1295372-ge_profile_ref_ice_despenser_motor_not

It seems that the bulb in the front panel is pulling to much current as it ages and it makes the control panel in not work properly. Removing the bulb will fix the problem - just fixed mine.

Also seems to match your symptoms (works sometimes and then not others - bulb current is inconstent, light dims when dispense lever pressed - again wrong current draw).

Good luck
