removed 2 phillips screws for side panel and one for cold control faceplate. Pulled control away from chassis, disconnected wires with pliers, pulled out long sensor wire going into freezer. Installed new part in reverse order. Works like a charm, should save energy and money.

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.

A power surge made my side by side refrigerator stop working

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!

Cut 1'x10'x10" select pine board into 4 pieces. Attached the four pieces using the Kreg Jig Jr to each other. Stained and polyurethane for appearance. Added EDM weather strip to bottom edge of collar. Disconnected hinges and removed lid from freezer chest. Placed collar on top of chest freezer then placed lid on top of collar. Carefully aligned collar to freezer and lid to collar. Attached existing hinge of lid to collar, then mounted new hinges to existing freezer mount location then attached new hinges to collar. Double hinged collar. Nice!!!! Not a repair but an improvement.
