I think GE had a run of bad boards 2001-2004 as many ppl have had problems with this board.

GE GSL25JFXLB (250 cu ft) Side by Side Refrigerator


your thermistors are way out of range even at that temperature you say,put each thermistor in a glass of ice water for 5 minutes,then remove the J1 connector from the main board and check with an ohm meter set on 20k ohm between the thermistors common terminal #5 and the other pin terminals all thermistors tested this way should be about 16k ohms when tested this way,if not replace them

Where can i buy a circuit board for my lg refrigerator model lfc23760st


No need to buy a new main control board !
The problem is mainly from the fuse that soldered in the main control board, go to buy a "125V 15A or 250V 15A" fuse ($5.00 a pack of 5 pcs), cut the burnt fuse from the board, re-soldered the new fuse into the board, the refrigerator work again. you save $80 for the labour cost of the technician and $180 for the cost of a new main board.

Refrigerator does not appear to be getting power, no lights, don't here motor running


If you have no lights or hear the motor running, I would check the house circuit breaker first and measure the voltage at the outlet. If that is within specs then the one thing that could cause your problem in the refrigerator is the power control board P/N: 6871JB2047A

RS2445SH does not restart after power spike.


Some fridge units  have a delay of up to 30 minutes after power failure or short unplugging... this is to prevent restarting the compressor right away after stopping. If this is a longer delay than 30 minutes, or it never restarts without unplugging for a good while, then you might be dealing with a problem, probably with the control board. But if you see any kind of dim light or movement in any part like fan or clicking of relay beside the compressor.Then its not the control board issue.Then check out for the movement in compressor if compressor is not running then its short in compressor.  
The problem is either of the 2 the main circuit board or the compressor.TRY connecting the refrigerators power wire in other power outlet then check out.If there is no power at all the circuit board needs to be checked.
For getting required parts you canget it from the on-line site like www.repairclinic.com

GE Monogram ZISB36DYB Freezer Not Cold Enough; Burning Center


Pull the refrig out , and remove the panel at the bottom , on the back . Behind this panel , will be the compressor and condenser " roll " coil , and the condenser fan motor . From your description of the problem , the fan motor in not operating , or the coils are extremely clogged with dust . If the fan motor is not operating , the most likely cause , is the main control board . You can try replacing the motor first , but , the board is most likely the cause . This is the electronic board , behind the 8 " X 10 " panel , behind the refrig also . If you remove the panel , and look at the board closely , You may see a burned part ( resistor ) . However , replacing the burnt part , will not solve the problem . The complete board will need to be replaced .

Neither side will cool


If there is no frost on the rear wall , inside the freezer , then the main control board is bad . This board , is located behind the refrig , behind an 8 " X 10 " panel . The part number is WR55X10656 . This board , probably has a burnt compressor module , keeping the compressor from running . The board is easily replaceable .

Gsl25jfpa bs fridge is warm on top and frozen on bottom and freezer is warm


It sounds like the fan in the freezer is not working , to circulate air , and the coldness is just dropping . This will cause the icemaker to stop working first , then the top portion of the refrig next . As this coldness drops , the lower portion of the fridge ( crispers ) , will freeze . The main control board , causes the fan , not to run . Part Number WR55X10656 . The main control board , is located , behind the refrig , behind an 8 " X 10 " , small panel . There is usually a burnt resistor on the board , which is connected to the fan . Unfortunantly , the whole board will need to be replaced . It is easily replaceable . Doesn't take any special knowledge . All the plugs 6 or 7 , each fit the pin plug designed for it .

No cooling or compressor operation


Compressor and evap fan cycling are controlled by a circuit board as well as the defrost. It is all in serie - once your defrost kicks in contact is cut from the evap fan and compressor - once defrost is finished the switch reverts back to normal operation and your evap fan & compressor turns on.

Most common causes of this issue is either a defrost timer fault or control board (burnt resistor or bad board).

Inspecting and changing the control board will usually fix the issue - if your evap fan comes on after changing the board but not the compressor then you have a bad compressor.

If you have one of those units like some whirlpool/Kenmore/Inglis that have electronic controls in the refrigerator section, this is the board that controls the thermostat and compressor on/off cycling. The board behind your freezer is also connected to the board in your fridge, this one controls the defrost.

Ice melts, then refreezes. Rubber Is HOT


Pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel . Is the fan that cools the compressor working ? Is the coil roll clean ? If the fan is not working , then the problem is probably the main control board . Behind the 8"X10" panel , above the compressor area . Remove the cover , and look for a burnt resistor , just to be safe . If this fan does not work , then the coils and the refrigerant line running between the doors , will get very hot .

Test to see if circuit board is okay


From Appliance Aid.com

WHY Force the Arctica to Defrost if it Don�t Want to? Don't bother using the self-diagnostics feature to force a defrost cycle. On some models � those with control knobs - which technically are not Arctica models (Arctica models have plastic liners with touch pads � Standard GE electronic models with metal liners have knobs) servicers would have to invest in parts to build a �test� control panel, complete with touch pads and digital displays, to achieve this (self-diagnostics) function. Instead, save both time and money by following this helpful Arctica Tip: If a frosted evaporator or a �frost block� is apparent, initiating a defrost cycle may not reveal anything helpful anyway. First, disconnect power and then simply check the resistance across the defrost heater and bimetal circuit at the main board located at the backside. The two associated wires at the main board are almost always BLUE and ORANGE. The heater/bimetal circuit should normally read around 30 ohms roughly. Next, check the evaporator thermister at the main board between thermister input terminals J1-4 (Blue/White) and J1-5 (Blue) to determine that its resistance is greater than 1.2k ohms but not more than 166.8k ohms depending on its ambient temperature. If thermister resistance falls within this range according to temperature (Approximately: 6k ohms at 70�F � 16.3k ohms at 32�F � 51k ohms at 0�F) and the heater/bimetal circuit is diagnosed as good, then replace the main board.
