Any tips on replacing mother board

Hello!  The display went out that tells temp and water disp. status, etc.  I was informed it was the controler board.  I have the part but not the moolah to pay to have it put in.  I am far from a tech.  Any advice on how to replace this mother board in layman terms?
(48" Monogram fridge, part wr55x10159)
Thanks! Count

Re: Any tips on replacing mother board

Generally, these boards are located behind the button panel on the top of the unit. Find screws or pryouts. Be sure your fridge is unplugged before starting this operation.

My frigidaire is displaying SY CF

Hello Angela Clark - Typically error code SY CF indicates that the refrigerator has detected a communication failure after power up. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. The wiring between the main control board and user interface board will need to be check and diagnose. Depending on the diagnoses the main control board may need replacing.

Want to know when and how to replace water filter on a ge side by side refrig


The water filter status light or indicator, present on some models, will help you know when to change your water filter. The light, or indicator, is located either on the temperature control panel in the refrigerator compartment or on the dispenser control panel on the freezer door.

The indicator will be one of two styles.

If the indicator is a light or series of lights, the light will change from green to yellow. This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. It is recommended that you replace the filter when the status light changes to red or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If the indicator resembles a stack of bars, the bar height will decrease and the status display will change from "Good" to "Order." This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. Replace the water filter cartridge when the water filter status display changes to "Replace" or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If a filter status light/indicator is not present, the filter should be changed at least once every 6 months. Your filter may need to be replaced more frequently depending on your usage and water quality.

If the water flow to the water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases before 6 months have passed, you may need to replace the water filter cartridge more often. Decreased water flow is a sign that the filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.

If the filter is clogged and you are not able to immediately replace it, remove the filter so the water system is in bypass mode. With the filter removed, the water system will continue to operate, bypassing the filter, and the clogged filter will not cause slow water dispensing or low ice production. However, in order to have filtered water, you will need to install a new filter.

The filter status display will help you know when to change your
water filter. When the display reads 10%, order a new filter. It is
recommended that you replace the filter when the display reads 10% OR when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases.

The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage.

Step 2
Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.

Step 3
Pull the filter straight out.

Step 4

Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter. IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.

Step 5
Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.

Step 6
Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are still in place after the covers are removed.

Step 7
Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop back out when the filter is fully engaged.

Step 8
Flush the water system. Use a sturdy cup or glass. Depress and hold the
water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat this process until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever. Hold down for 5 seconds and then release for 5 seconds. Do this on/off process for about 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing

Hope this helpout in changing the water filter......

I can not reset the door after replacing the water

If by chance you unplugged the control panel while working on the dispenser the mother board does not recognize the board until you unplug the power from the wall. That should reset the eeprom memory back to factory settings. Try that first. Sea Breeze

Go into the diagnostic mode on your touch display .
1) . Press any button on the display 1 time except the temp adjust buttons.
2) Press the temp up and down on both the freezer AND refrig (all 4 at the same time)
3) when 0's show , release the buttons and press any button except for the temp adjust buttons .
4) NOW , fress the temp adjust buttons until the freezer side displays 0 and the refrig side displays 7 . 0 and 7 is for the thermistors test .
5) After 0 and 7 display , press any button again except temp adjust , and this will start the thermistor check .
6) You will have 7 thermistor tests , indicated on the refrig display , starting at 1 , then 2 then .......
7) The feezer display will tell for the corresponding thermistor , indicated by the refrig display , if the thermistor p = pass , s = short , b = bad (replace board)

After determining if or which thermistor is bad , then adjust the display to 1 on freezer display and 6 on the refrig display . This ends the testing procedure and resets the refrig back to normal .

Water dispenser on GE side by side not working. what should the refrigerator and freezer settings be? Can that be the problem?

Dispenser controls on any refrigerator actuate one of two things. Ice disp, or water disp. If the IM is not working also, then H20 valve is bad. If just the H20 disp feature isn't working in the door, try this: remove food and unplug unit for 24 hours. Then, plug back in and resume normal operation. If all checks ok, you have a frozen water tank, or frozen water line. Fix: on certain model ref's, there is a water tank service flash where an antifreeze insulation kit should be installed, contact Sears or your retailer for this information. On others, this is simply a freeze up caused by lack of H20 usage or temps in ref/freezer set too low. If this does not fix the water supply, and you still have ice production after 2-5 hours after restarting the ref, remove the dispenser cover and test the water supply actuator switch for continuity. of open after drepression, replace switch. If switch checks ok, then replace water valve as on side of the solonoid valve assy is not functioning. In rare cases, you may have to check or replace the wiring harness. This can be tested only after elimenating the disp switch test, and calling for H20 from the disp, voltage at the disp wires to the H20 valve, but no voltage recieved at the h20 valve, or by an ohm reading of the wires.

GE Fridge, Compressor not getting power from mother board

I asked that because in most cases, when it is a problem in a motherboard, it is likely a power surge or lightening. I can also tell you that when it comes to mother boards and component level, likelihood, it isn't transistors or anything unless it smells or looks burned. Most shops would just replace the motherboard and ship it as repaired becaue the cost of the IC isn't worth the possibility of something in another IC on the same board knocking iit out again. Short of plug and play, you have no real way of proving this board good/bad. You might try EBAY with your model number to see if you get lucky. I just got rid of an electronic stove because the control board went bad. New board was $150 with a possibility of it going out in 6 months. As I am not made of money, I now have a gas stove. I you could, please rate this as a fixya as I am just being honest and saving you time and aggrivation. Good luck
