Refrigerator is not cooling. Light and fan working. Changed the capacitor.. Still not cooling. Back to discovery mode.It may be the timer

Had to e-mail GE for electrical schematic. Checked voltages to compressor. Jumpered compressor to see if it would even come on. Found bad run capacitor. Fixed.

The part was easy to locate since partselect has diagrams. They even tell you where to find the model number. Once the part was received, I was kind of afraid that I would not be able to get the guts out - the light and the control that is mounted on the panel. However, General Electric in their infinite wisdom let more than enough extra wire to pull the parts out and allowed me to install them on the new panel. Easy fix ( very), one screw driver , three screws, and 10 minutes.

I started at the compressor and replaced the overload and the Ptcr first and that did not make the compressor start running again, so I replaced the capasitor and it still did not start, so I bit the bulett and replaced the Main Control Board and that is what I should have checked first, when I removed the old one I found a little burnt spot on the back that I could not see from the front. The new one did not look exactly like the old one, it had two more wire terminals than the old one, but just leave them blank and everything will work just fine!
