Question about GE GSS25LGM Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a GE side by side and it just stopped working? My GE side (model pss26mswass) by side stopped working and it has no power and nothing is running. I check the house fuse pannel and no breakers are tripped. Also I pulled the fridge out and tested the wall outlet and there's power to it (i used a small radio and it works when plugged in there). Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to FixYa,

Unfortunately based on your post ( has no power and nothing is running. I check the house fuse panel and no breakers are tripped. Also I pulled the fridge out and tested the wall outlet and there\'s power )
the issue is likely the control board (PCB) at the back of your fridge.

If you slide the fridge out and look at the back you'll see a square panel approx. 4"x5" held by four screws ( sometimes three ) remove it and you'll see this control...

I have a GE side by side and it just stopped - macmarkus_198.jpg

It should be available ( part # WR55X10942 ) at "" or "" to name a couple for about $150 or so and come with a guide to install it, though it should be harness for harness & wire for wire.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Let me know how you make out or if you need further assistance and I'll help in any manner I can.

    Awesome Mike !

    I've been a fan since around 1982-83, but I love mostly the stuff pre 1990, but I'm a fan of all of their stuff really...I play drums in my spare time, I'm no Nicko or Burr though ha ha !

    I just got the Flight 666 dvd for xmas, it's like being back in 1985 with my buddies all over again...many good memories back on the eastcoast.

    Anyway, back to the present...Let me know if I can help you going forward with the repair.

    Regards, ( up the irons \m/ )

    Macmarkus :)

Kenmore model 596.71103101 stopped working. No sounds at all, no cooling. Un plugged for awhile, plugged in, still nothing, cranked freezer control to Max, started working

Sounds like a defective cold control thermostat. Remove the wires from the thermostat and jump them together. If it runs continuosly for 45 minutes, replace the thermostat.

You said that the control board on rear of your refrigerator was replaced and there is still nothing happening? You do need to check the power behind the refrigerator to make sure there is power, yes.When did the control board get replaced and was it new?. Sea Breeze.

Fridge stopped working

Sounds as if the unit is stuck in defrost. How old is it? Look for mechanical {twist} timer and turn it until it starts. If it is a newer model unplug unit for 1 minute this might reset control board but you'll have to know if it is either mechanical or Automatic defrost!!

Side by side stopped working but clicling noises every second two.

Ok the motherboard is malfunctioning. Ive observed this exact problem before. Replace the board and all will be normal again. If you keep lettig it click and click it may finally kill that relay that you descibed to me or even worse the compressor itself.
