Question about Refrigerators
I took the panel off the back of the fridge as I followed the noise to the circuit board. The circuit board is making a clicking noise... I think the fridge is not working. How do I know if the entire circuit board needs to be replaced or just ''one'' thing on the circuit board?
I fixed my motherboard.
Board WKKT Model 0158-00-04
Board GEA Part 200D4854G013
I replaced both 47uF x 400V capacitors - one of them was bulged. The bad one was open, and the other still had it's nominal value.
I tryed to make the refrigerator work, to no avail.
After a careful inspection, i replaced both 470uF x 25V capacitor (c29 and c30, i guess - near the 7805 regulator). Both had around 0.5% of their original value, and i belive it was the source of the problem.
Everytime the processor tried to start the relay, the power level dropped and the motherboard "rebooted"... and thus the cycles and clicks from the relay.
The refrigerator got back to life!
There was a recall by GE on November, 2006.
Call GE at 18003861215, option 3. Mention the recall and maybe it's still valid a free replacement.

You remove the board and the trace will be burned off in one spot, just replace the whole board2 $80.25 cause it doesn't take much to make that in spoiled food later

Sounds like you have a GE side by side, replace the mother board. Common problem. Once you replace then check to make sure the evap fan is running and condenser fan are working.
