I do know that the board is $150 retail part. $150 labor is kinda steep, Id only charge 1hr @ $75/hr. Hope I helped.

No power blown circular fuse on circuit board back of box midway up

The circular fuse has blown due to a component short or earth fault. Usually the condenser fan or compressor. Is it repairable? If not a new board will be needed, but you must test the components with a multimeter and replace the faulty one before fitting the new board.

Technician say he changed out main circuit board. Is there anyway to know for sure?

No. You should always ask for the old parts back. I'm sure you got ripped off. Women are easy prey as they are easily intimidated and awed by the tech's knowledge of mysterious forces.

No power to compressor


Is GSS25JFPCC the correct model number? If yes and many other GE refrigerators that have a motherboard. The motherboard for your refrigerator is found on the back and is item location 801 found HERE If you would like to replace the=> WR55X10942 Main Control Board or here=> WR55X10942 Main Control Board
I can provide you a service manual and explain all the things to consider when replacing the board. Things like fan motors, compressor start relay/overload and run capacitor also need to be examined to prevent the new board from going bad. A fan motor can cause this if it shorts. Yours sounds like the compressor circuit on the board down to the compressor has shorted on the morher board. I am here if you would like my assistance, Sea Breeze

Beverage air no capacitor dmc4

don't know of any commercial compressors that have capacitors that are internal. I'd get a capacitor and see if that will get it going. Let me know if you need any help.

Fridge and freezer stopped working.Power still on (light on in fridge). Digital control for fridge and freezer shows straight line no numbers. Any suggestions?

The double dashes in your display are for one of two reasons. First situation would be would be "you turned the unit off". Press the up arrow on the feezer or fresh food control until a 4 is in each display. Second, if the control is locked out, the board has been scrambled or failed possibly from a power surge. Unplug unit for 30 seconds, and plug it back in and try to set control's for "4". If controls are still locked out, the board (12868513) needs to be replaced.

Whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise

Had the identical symptoms with my Whirlpool Gold GS6SHEXNB00 side-by-side refrigerator. Had a technician come on site, indicated it was the "circuit board/ timer" (Whirlpool part # 1394052). Board is accessible from behind fridge (lower left side in a white plastic housing to left of compressor).

Swapped the board out (noticed a scorched circuit on the old circuit board). Lightbulbs now work, temperature readouts also good to go.
