Replacing the motherboard was really easy. However it has not fixed my refrigerator. I continue to have cooling issues with fridge and sometimes with the freezer.

After pulling fridge out from the wall, removing the bottom back panel and inspecting the fridge operating parts, I noticed the condenser fan never comes on. Reading online I found that most of the time the problem is with the main control board. I simply unscrewed the back panel, carefully disconnected the cables from the old board, plugged them back in to the new board, replaced the panel and started the Fridge back up. It cooled right down to normal temperature within the hour! Five years of neurotic behavior around cooling the fridge were over! My wife and I constantly rearranged various fans around the kitchen and joining rooms, opened the cabinet above, taking out the bottom shelf to make more ventilation, pulling the fridge out from the wall several inches, and worrying every time the freezer went up to 9 or 10 or even 20 degrees, and the fridge section up to 40 or even 45 degrees F. I can sleep easy now, and use the fans on us in hot weather, rather than the constant buzz in the kitchen. We can even have a conversation without yelling above the din of the fans!

The video instructions were easy to follow as well as the replacement. The replacement Main Control Board is generic to different refrigerators and has more connectors than the original. Be sure to identify the locations prior to removal and installation.

I used the repair video supplied on line. I followed it step by step and the repair was made quickly and easily. Best of all I saved the expensive cost of a repairman.

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.

ice maker and water dispenser stopped working and the fridge made a clicking sou nd as if something was turning on and off, got online and read faqs determined I needed a new mother board. nd

Had a repairman come out and quote me over $600 to replace the control panel and the display. I went online and found you guys, watched the video, and replaced the control panel in less than 15 minutes. Your video was great and gave very clear instructions - unplugged the fridge, unscrewed the panel on the back, popped off the control panel and connectors using needle-nose plyers, put new control panel in place and reconnected all the plug-ins, put cover panel back on, plugged fridge in, reconnected and checked display inside front of fridge, it came on and lit up, closed the door and let the fridge cool to the proper temp. The fridge is now working great for around $175 for parts. Thanks!

The repair was simple really. Merely a replacement part. After disconnecting the ribbon cables and removing old panel all that was left was to reconnect all 3 ribbon cables and the ground and put the cover back on. Simple even for a girl :-)

This is a very easy repair. The hardest part was pushing the fridge in and out and having to clean back there!!. Before starting anything, I unplugged the fridge from the wall outlet. I removed 4 nut-drive screws holding the circuit board cover to the back of the fridge. Once the circuit board was exposed, I first compared the current board with the new one to make sure the connections were the same. I did have to use the already existing ground wire (green wire) for the circuit board as the new one provided with the new board had the wrong connectors. I then marked each wire harness from left to right, top to bottom, so I knew what order they were to be reconnected. I then disconnected the 5 wiring harnesses. The hardest part of the repair was removing the board itself. There are 4 plastic connectors holding the board in place. I tried to squeeze them with the pliers, but the board would not come off. I then watched the online video and realized I was squeezing the connectors wrong. After changing how I was squeezing the connectors, the board came out very easily. It was very easy then to snap the new board into place, reconnect the wires, and plug in the fridge. I did test everything before replacing the cover just in case I needed to reconnect something, etc. All in all, this repair took maybe 30 minutes, but that included time to gather the tools, pull out the fridge, clean behind the fridge, replace the board, test the system, and push the fridge back into place. Very Easy

Condensor Fan Motor not working, unit getting hot

Noticed the interior wall hot to the touch when opening cooler or freezer door (side by side). pulled lower panel off in rear of unit and noticed fan motor not working. Ordered new fan motor, installed , still did not work. used volt meter to test for power from main control panel to motor. No power present. Ordered main control panel board and installed. Fixed problem. It ran excellant for about an hour and then the control panel shorted out the main control panel and motor that had just been purchased. Both were replaced at no additional charge by Customer Service. Second installation was a success. Sometimes bad things happen to an already bad situation. It's nice to have the understanding, support and service offered by Parts Select. I guess that's why I use them every time there is a problem. G E is easy to repair as long as you use patience and determination.

The water and ice dispenser suddenly stopped working. The light in the dispenser would dim whenever we tried to get water or ice.

I pulled the power cord, removed the screws and the cover. After removing the screws from the main control board I unplugged all of the connections from the bad board and plugged them into the new board in the same order. An easy change and a real moneysaver!

Freeze and refrigerator sides at times were warmer than normal. Would not dispense water or ice threw door dispenser, also could hear a clicking noise every so often the last about 10 minutes at a time. I think the clicking would start on the main board when it went into the defrost mode. Defrost mo
