Question about GE GSS23SGSSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
My favorite site (USA domestic)) is saying
you are missing a character in your MODEL number...
((I don't worry much about numbers... do IN FACT get changed over time... The important part is USA domestic))
Check out the part link below...
What you describe has to be a MAIN POWER circuit failure.
In the old days I would say "DEFROST TIMER"... without any hesitation... especially because of your "3 day" description.
New machines... your power control board typically takes that function...
I would strongly suggest you watch this included video...
then take pictures of your CONNECTIONS before you touch anything.
Always remove power & always wear an anti-static wrist strap when touching ANY CIRCUIT BOARD YOU CARE ABOUT.
$6 WRIST BAND (electro-static discharge = ESD)...
ROLL YOUR BOARD over and look at the bottom
for a BAD SOLDER JOINT under your (little black
... probably OMRON power relays...
(the quick touch of a SKILLED solderer's iron could ALTER
(or ruin) the functionality of that board...
((badly burned should be DE-SOLDERED & cleaned first))
(((better still send it in for professional refurbishment
YOU should order that SPARE BOARD you always wanted
(AFTER VERIFYING all your numbers FIRST).
LIKE at AMAZON (wrong number?)

I had GE come out and look at it. I wasn't home to ask questions. The repair man basically said it was a 'loose connection' in the back which is where the motherboard is for all the electronics. It took him less than 5 minutes to fix and he was gone.
Thankfully - it cost me zilch. I told a small white lie and said we were still under warranty and they didn't ask to verify. Can I get an Amen!

on the back of the frig is a small rectangle panel. inside that panel is the motherboard that controls the whole refrigerator. thoughs boards have been nothing but trouble. one of the problems it causes when it goes bad is the problem your having. replace the board to fix it

you would have to remove the back lower panel of the freezer section to get a feel as to whats going on in there. behind the panel you will find an evaporator panel that should have consist ant frost pattern from top to bottom with no excessive clumps of ice.I'm assuming you don't otherwise your refrig would be working ok..
either theres only the top 1 or 2 coils actually have ice on them, and the rest of the coil is bright shiny aluminum. or there is an excessive amount of ice built up so far that you dont even see an evap coil.
if the first is true and threre little frost then that points to a sealed system/ low freon issue. and call a servicer. you should have a full 5 yr warr. for sucha problem
if its the second issue hen theres a defrost problem and youll need to replace either the defrost heater, defrost thermstat( most likely),or the defrost board/timer

INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.
