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.

Ice dispnser worked intermitently. My diagnosis led me to the freezer door light switch. Switch operated the light but stopped the ice dispenser. After replacing the switch the dispenser operates every time now. problem solved.

I determined that the auger was broken. But with company coming in a week I did not want to take a chance with needing additional parts. I simply ordered the whole assembly. It arrived in plenty of time and installing it was easy. Take it out of the box, rinse it out with warm soap and water, dry it out, remove the old bucket and slide the new one in its place. Absolutely no problem! I was surprised on how well the new ice dispenser worked after the swap. My old one must have been broken for some time.

Took old part out, put new part in. Thats not the story here, it was the ease of finding the part needed, the price was very reasonable and the service was second to none! The part arrived in less than 48hrs. (no special shipping was used) I would like to thank the people at PartSelect for a great experience. Other companies I have delt with in the past could take a few lessons in customer service from PartSelect. I highly recommend them! Patrick Spinks

First of all, you must watch the video on the partselect.com site. The video helps a lot. Then, you can start disconnecting the power cable; unscrew the cover of the main control board. Disconnected the connections from the old board. Unplug the board with a help of a small plier. Installed the new board, connect all connections back. Put the cover back. Connect back the power cable. Unit is running as a brand new.
