First determined my modle did not require any of the wire mods descibed on the instructions. Removed power and three cover plate screws. Removed board connectors. Calapsed board anchors and removed board. Removed existing ground wire from board. Installed ground wire on new board and installed board on four mounts. installed connectors and replaced cover and screws. I did wear playtex gloves so as not to cause a static short and wipe out the new board. Took off the bottom panel and cleaned condensor fan cage while I had the fridge out. Secured, plugged in fridge, works real fine, lasts a long time.

I simply replaced the motherboard which was very simple and straight forward. No I do have an engineering background and understand the importance of RTFM..... That being said I spent more time cleaning the floor under the refer than replacing the MB. Great success and will certainly order again if and when the time calls.

Unit making surging noises and water/ice dispenser not working

  • Customer: David from Sackets Harbor NY
  • Difficulty: Really easy

The repair video was great, made the repairs very easy. Once the old main electrical control board was changed out, the unit started to work good. I also vacuumed the back of the unit where dust had built up around critical air flow areas. I am still having trouble with the filtered water not working. I was thinking the trouble might be the water flow check valve. The cubed ice and crushed ice both work great. The freezer is set on 1 and the refrigerator on the 2 setting. I have found where the water spout comes out of the door, if the ice flapper door does not seal properly, the water freezes at the curve of the water spout. I open the freezer door for 10 or so minuets and that's enough to thaw the spout for use. The cost to do the repairs myself was $160. I saved hundreds of dollars. Thanks PartSelect. Dave,

Found the refrigerator wasn't on any longer and the lights on the display were flashing and the select buttons for ice maker no longer worked or responded to being pushed, researched online and gave a bit of a guess to change out the control board, and the new one solved the problem

Unplugged, thenRemoved cover plate on the backside of refrigerator, unclipped wire harnesses, then popped small white plastic clips that hold board in place to release, clipped new one on, plugged wire harnesses on, screwed metal cover on with remembering the ground wire and then plugged back into electrical outlet, it works fine now.

My GE Profile refrigerator was making the clicking noise

My GE Profile refrigerator was making the clicking noise so many people on the Parts select website mentioned, but luckily was still cooling at least sporadically. The mother board I ordered came in expeditiously and I installed it in about 10 minutes. This is an easy job, made easier by the video explaining the installation provided on the website. The clicking disappeared and by the following morning the temperatures in both the fridge and freezer had stabilized. I figure I saved the cost of a new fridge, or the probable $800 or so bill to have a repairman come to the house, ( I live in NewYork where we all, particularly repairmen, charge each other double)

Temperature panel showing Error Code

This fridge had been slowly dying over the past 3 years. First to go was the Ice Maker/Water control. It wasn't the switches, it was something else. Then it was the compressor acting up, making lots of noise, running all the time. Finally the temperature of the Freezer failed. But after unplugging and restarting, it began to work again. By this time we emptied the thing out and just left it there to see what would happen, while pricing out new replacement refrigerators. Finally the compressor stopped and the temperature panel was blank except for an error code. HSR maybe, I don't remember now. But I was resigned to buying a new $2000 refrigerator. I don't know why, but I did not want to gamble on calling in a service man. Acting on a hunch, I did a BING search on the error code and my model number. The best hit was the PartSelect video showing how easy it is to replace the main board. Reading the description, all of the problems solved by this fix were ones that we had with ours. So I convinced my wife to take a shot at spending the $160 to fix the fridge, and maybe save $2000. So I did it. The video instruction was easy to follow, and I have done some repair work, and built my own computers before, so it was not out of my realm of experience. Short story: It worked, and the fridge is working better than ever.

Ordered another motherboard from GE. Received shipment in less than 3 days. Replacement motherboard was packed very well. Installation took about 5 minutes with a common screwdriver. 4 hours after installation the refrigerator and bottom freezer were back at normal temps. Saved myself hundreds of dollars by doing it myself.

The Part Select videos made the repair super easy. Monkey see -monkey do. One thing that should be stated more strongly is that you need to UNPLUG THE APPLIANCE SO YOU DON'T SHORT OUT THE MOTHERBOARD. Accidentally shorting out the motherboard makes the repair much more expensive.

plastic parts came out in my drink and "locked open" the ice dispenser door, resulting in water line freeze up

I was able to fairly confidently identify the problem from the on line parts break down. Having had an appliance repairman tell me the inside door seal would need removing to access the dispenser, I searched comments in the blog, and found a note that one only had to poke the two tabs on the bottom of the control panel to remove it, and easily access everything. After that, it was a few screws, some minor assembly to remove/replace the light and switch, and very easy replacement. I was able to reuse the dislodged flapper seal, and didn't need either spring, but compared to the repairman's estimate, I still came out a couple hundred bucks ahead. thanks
