Check the installation instructions that you recieved that was with the control board. Some models require a resistor to be cutt out of the board. MODEL SENSITIVE.

Why does The freezer side stays cold but the refrigerator side gets warm


Your problem is more than likely a defrost issue. There is ice building up in the freezer coils and when it gets blocked with ice the cold air cant blow into the fresh food section. When you shut it off the ice melts and it gets cold again for a few days. remove the freezer back panel and check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. if they check OK then check the defrost timer. It is best to replace all three components at the same time. This way you will be starting out with new components rather than one failing then the other.

Freezer defrosts, things melt then frost up


You have a defrost system failure. You can verify this by take off the rear shield of the freezer and looking at your evaporator coil. If it has a large amount of ice built up on it, then your defrost circuit is not functioning. The defrost circuit is made up of the heater (WR51X10055), the defrost thermostat (WR50X10068) that are located in the freezer section close to the evaporator coils and a timing circuit that is part of the main control board (WR55X10942) which is located in your component compartment at the lower rear.
NOTE: If you defrost the evaporator coils the refrigerator should operator normally for about two weeks (until the ice builds back up).
Hope this helps! Hal aka ImJustAvg

Ice building up in freezer


Due to the frosting up, The glass defrost heater broke. Any good tech knows this happens. The defrost heater must be replaced. If this is a GE side by side. The new replacement heater has dual elements. The standard heater that was put in them, was not large enough to defrost the coils fully. Replace heater and you should be fixed up. I would also replace the thermostat while you are in the freezer section they are only like 15 bucks and this way you will have a new defrost circuit.

Fridge and Freezer are Warm Ice is still being made


Hi - I just had the same problem on a 48 Monogram 1996 model.
The guys at the factory told my local service center that it was the main logic board ($200 for parts) and they replaced it, but that wasn't it.
It was the evaporator sensor. i don't claim to understand it all, but I think that the sensor is responsible for telling a heating element to turn on and defrost. If it does not do it's job, then frost builds up (You can feel the frost if you feel up in the freezer, up hight and in the front)) The frost keeps the cold air from getting to the fridge. Eventually the logic unit will freak out because ti is trying to keep the fridge cold, but the fridge send back that it is hot.
The repair guy may not want to replace the sensor because it is like an hour and half to get back in there. And it is a tight fit.

Maybe but there is also a thermister in the defrost system that might be bad. The thermister is a small, white, barrell shape and is as big around as a pencil, It has 2 wires going in it and is attached to the top of the coils in the freezer.
