First warm day of summer noticed beverages were cool but not cold pulled the refrigerator away from the wall and noticed quikly the condensor fan was not working

We were not sure if the problem was with the fan or the main control board after reading other posts with similar problems we decided the main control board was most likely the problem our unit is over 5 years old with heavy use. We left the fridge pulled away from the wall and put a medium size fan aimed toward the condensor, compressor area and that worked bringing the temperature down and the unit did shut off. This further assured us that it was probably the main control unit and we also figured with the units age the control board would eventually have to be replaced. It took several days to get the main control unit(not bad)and we left the fan in place during the wait. We watched the video read the instuctions and had just a small problem removing some of the wiring harnesses nothing major. Squeezed the plastic tabs with needle nose pliers my son pulled as I watched everything carefully came off well put the new one in place easily plugged all the wires back on you cannot put them in the wrong place do to the configurations plugged the unit back in and the fan went right to work. Put everything back together and the unit runs as quiet as it did when it was new the part was a little pricey but saved the cost of a repair man

A local appliance parts shop told me that GE refrigerators were notorious for bad control boards. The new one cost ~ $200, with express shipping. Removal and installation were easy and straight-forward. After the replacement, the refrigerator is working fine--for now.

Refrigerator and Freezer warming and cooling. Ice would melt and then refreeze. Freezer temp would warm to 25 then back to 0, refrig temp would warm to 50 then back to 34.

We first read that we should thoroughly clean the coils which we did. They were very dirty, full of dust. This seemed to help for a couple days then the hot and cold started up again and was even worse. We did some research on the internet and all indications led us to change the main control board. We found PartSelect ordered the part, received it super fast (within 2 days), changed the part in less than 15 mins and our refrigerator works like new. No trouble since the repair. Saved a lot of time and money doing the repair ourselves.

Based on the site, I figured the problem was the electronics board or the defrost sensor. After some multimeter work, I was pretty sure that it was the board; however, the defrost sensor was inexpensive so I bought both. I watched the videos, and the work was pretty much the way it was described. No problems or unforeseen issues.

Flapper valve on icemaker wouldn't close anymore

Watched a video as prep. Popped plastic trim off(always scary, thinking plastic will break and it won't go back on), unscrewed control panel and popped wires off. replaced the items I had bought except micro switch which was fine. cleaned all the muck off the innards, replaced all plastic without anguish. I filled a glass with ice and watched with glee as the flapper slammed shut, keeping room air out and curing my iced up icemaker problem. God bless PartSelect!

Ice Maker not making ice

The video on the GE site was great. Showed step by step instructions on how to remove the old ice maker and install the new one. Also helpful was the detail on the water chute which needed to be moved from the old ice make to the new one. Saved hundreds of dollars by not having to have a repairman do this work for me.
