Refrigerator turned off and won't turn back on

Model # GSL25JFRFBS turned off at some point and I cannot get it turned back on. Checked the breakers, etc. Power to house is on.No idea how to get it powered back up. It isn't that old of a refrigerator.

Is the light on inside? If yes then you need a new contrl board located on the back wallll of the unit. It has changed 6 different times from when you bought the fridge. That is six different issues they where trying to improve or remedy on the prior boards. If the light is not on plug in something else to make sure the outlet is powered up, and inspect the power cord for breaks. Hope this helps.

Error message 1F on refrig

I have the same model and had the same problem after 3 years of use. I checked this and other sites and here's how I fixed it -- easy, peasy.
1. Turn off the power to the refrig. I have a ckt breaker for the refrig so I didn't have to pull it out of its alcove.
2. Open the bottom freezer section, pull up on the front of the middle drawer and pull it out. If you look to the back inside wall of the freezer you'll see 3 vents.
3. Make a platform that will support a common hair dryer to bring it up to the level of the central vent. I used a couple of packs of napkins topped with a towel.
4. Turn on the hair dryer. I left it on for about an hour and heard two chunks of ice fall free at about the 15 and 30 minute points.
5. Remove the hair dryer and platform, put the middle drawer back in the opposite of how you removed it, and close the freezer section.
6. Turn the power back on.
7. Put a towel on the floor to catch the water from the melting ice chunks.
It's been 24 hours and the error has not reappeared.

If this doesn't work, then other comments suggest that it may be the related circuit panel and you'll need to call in for repairs.

I hope that this helps.

Gbc heatseal ultima 65 won't turn on. It shut off while laminating a poster. It was getting close to the end of the rolls, but it just shut off and wouldn't turn back on at all. 4 Days later it...

GBC appear to just be a crappy company. I have a Heatseal H212, same problem. Worked fine then one day when I turned it on it never became "ready". I waited a while longer then turned it off.. except it wouldn't let me turn it off. I had to unplug it from the mains to get it off. After that, it would never turn on. Checked the fuse, it was fine.

My Whirlpool refrigerator trips the main breaker of 40 Amps

A refrig cannot pull 40 amps in defrost , unless there is a direct short in the defrost system ( timer , heater , bimetal ) . I would use an extention cord ( for test purposes only ) , and try a different plug . Sounds like the circuit breaker is weak . In defrost , the MOST you should get , is 6 amps . This will not throw a 40 amp breaker . If you have an amp meter , remove the back refrig panel behind the refrig , and connect to one of the power cord lines (just not the green ground ) , turn into defrost and check the amps . This will tell you if short is in refrig , or weak breaker .

GE Fridge intermittent

I had the exact problem with my GSL25JFRFBS. It turned out to be a bad control board. The service technician that replaced the board said that the lights dimming on the on the ice/water dispenser is a direct indication of the control board being bad. This cost me $303.53 and my refridgerator is only a little over 2 years old. You can buy a new control board - WR55X10656 from GE online for a little over $157.00. From what I've found, this is an inherit issue with this model.
