Tempeature in fresh food section was unstable and dropped below 32F frequently. Service technician had previously replaced the two temperature sensors but this did not remedy the problem. I decided to replace the main control board and this seems to have have resolved the problem.

Went to DIY for directions. Found directions specific to my GE refrigerator model. Followed them to the letter - fixed in less than 10 minutes. Gasket simply needed to be warmed with hair dryer to soften enough to straighten the crimps from the folding needed for packing. Lift the old gasket off the door by prying a starting point with a flat head screwdriver and peeling it off. Then clean the door with soap and water, dry it, and press the new gasket in place. Magnets inside the gasket make the connection. Smmoth it all the wat around, apply a little petroleum jelly to the gasket on the door's hinge side to prevent the door from sticking and you're done.

The trouble with DIYers is that they don't have very much experience with and the benefit of several repairs on the same appliance. So they must rely on their mechanical abilities and the youtube help of Steve. So they must resort to eliminating the variables as their diagnostic approach. In my case I was unable to find the exact description of my problem, so I began with what seemed like the most likely and the least expensive replacement. So after I had replaced the water valve, the micro switch and the main board I finally found the problem was the water filter by ordering and installing a water bypass valve which I did not have readily available at the start.

I researched the issue on line and replaced the microswitch. I didn't test the part since it was so inexpensive and the whole process only took me about 15 minutes to complete. I didn't know "where" the microswitch was located until I watched your video, a very helpful tool. Thanks PartSelect, the part arrived 3 days after I ordered it.Mike in Spokane, WA

Removed control panel. Snapped out pretty easily. Removed flapper assembly (4 small screws). Replaced micro switch by prying it away from its holder (unsnaps easily). Disconnected the two wires leading to the micro switch and connected them to the new microswitch and reinstalled switch in reverse order. Cost of switch, approximately $13 including shipping. Saved a ton of money doing it myself.

I removed the front panel from water dispensor placing a very small screwdriver in the three small holes under the panel. It came free and then I was able to get to the solenoid and switch easily. However, my problem was not solved. It turned out to be the secondary water valve in the back of the unit, which is also an easy repair. The problem with repairs like this is you don't know if you're buying the right part until after you have installed it. Returning the parts are easy except for electrical parts which they won't take back once unstalled. All the parts were delivered the next day, although it said 3 to 5 business days.

I went to the internet and found parts select web site. Saw all of the possible fixes for my problem and read all of the other repair stories. My story actually became a journey that is still continuing. I first changed the water filter, but still no water at the dispenser. I next disconnected the coupling at the bottom of the freezer door that carries water to the dispenser and when the dispenser was depressed, water flowed at the coupling, but not at the dispenser. After reconnecting the coupling, I turned the freezer setting to 1 for 4-5 days, but still no water at the dispenser (possibly the line was frozen, but we had recently been away for a week and the water dispenser still supplied water at a freezer setting of 4). Now I am at the point of the journey into replacing parts one at a time to get water. First I ordered the dual water valve for the ice maker and water dispenser. I replaced this valve with instructions from Parts Select and still no water at dispenser. Next I ordered and replaced the switch at the dispenser lever and still no water. Next was the solenoid attached to the ice door, ordered, replaced and still no water at dispenser. I am now at the final part in this repair and that is the $132 circuit board. So I will be ordering this part soon and hopefully that will fix the issue.
