Question about GE Refrigerators
You probably need a new control board . To check ( if your refrig is 10 yrs or newer ) , unplug and pull the refrig out(or vise versa ) . Remove the 8" X 10" cover , revealing the control board . Remove the blue plug with 3 wires going to it . Looking at the PLUG , you will see : wire1 , wire2 , space , wire3 . Using an insulated wire with both ends stripped , insert one end into wire1 terminal and the other end into wire3 terminal . Plug the refrig back in . If the compressor runs now , the compressor is good and this verifys the board is bad . Sometimes the board can be removed and on the back side , you can see a bulls eye , where theer has come away from a pin . You can resolder this joint , there for , no need to replace the board .

Well, unfortunately you will have to replace the compressor.
you might as well replace the refrigerator for a brand new one since replacinng the compressor isn't economical.
As an appliance repair ny company we handle this issues frequently and replacing the compressor would cost you over $400
Hope it helped.

The compressor should be OK this time because you caught it in time. But if the condenser fan stops you need to consider replacing the fan. I have had refrigerators do fine until the fan motor warms up and you are away, it stops. Don't think you should use the refrigerator until the fan is fixed. Sea Breeze
