    Thank you for posting back so quickly. Yes the water and the ice work. I had left the door open prior to the malfunction. This may have caused the short. But like i said. The light will come on and stay on for a few minutes after switching the power off completely from the refridge. Everything seem to work fine except for the display lights.
    The freeze seems to work ok, but I am not sure it is cooling like it should. That is the door that was left open.

If you could give more information like will the water and ice work? If they do not I would replace the dispensor control bord. Also if you have the model with the thin doors there is a recall GE will only tell you about if you call with ice problem in the freezer door. Moisture leaks in and can also short out the control bord. So if you have frost building up at the ice chute I would 1-800-GE-CARES and find out if they will fix your problem. Good Luck

Hotpointt FFA80 freezer door kept opening on its own. noted that ice had formed and was pushing drawers against door. cover removed from coils and found solid with ice. left to defrost but when plugged...

Does the light inside the fridge come on? if it does then you are getting power. If not you are not getting primary voltage. As far as resets or cut outs there is three things that can stop the power to the compressor 1 the cold control (thermostat you set to raise or lower temp) 2 defrost control that is suppose to cycle and put the fridge into the defrost cycle about one time every 24 hours. 3 the over load heat activated cut off that is a small round device usually on the side of the compressor (the big black round can that is in the bottom of the fridge) Since ice formed I would check the defrost control first. It is a timer that should advance slowly on its own but usually can be turned by hand to advance to the defrost position. the defrost timer is usually at the bottom of the fridge and many times can be seen from the front of the fridge when the "kick plate" or bottom grate is removed. if you can find the little knob on the defrost timer try to turn it to the right (clock wise) and see if anything changes. Since the ice formed either the heat element that defrosts the coils or the defrost control has probably stopped working.

Freezer works but frigde isn't working

once ice forms on the freezer coils there is no air flow. I had the same thing. I suspect your defrost cycle is compromised. Could be the bimetal switch, defrost timer or defrost heater element.

look on the back wall of the freezer is there snow? if so you have a defrost component out (timer, limit, or heater) the fresh food compartment gets cool air from the freezer so check for blocked air pathways the build up of frost in the freezer stops air flow so you will be cold on freezer side and warm on ref side
