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

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)

ref. or freezer would not maintain temp.

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

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,

Unplugged power cord, removed back panel, disconnected wires, removed existing control board, installed new control board, reconnected wires, replaced back panel, plugged in power cord. The video instructions made it really easy. Saved at least $100.00 doing it myself. Awesome!

Followed the Parts Select video step-by-step. It was exactly as the video described and took about 5 minutes (though I already had the cover off). Almost a week later and the refrigerator is running fine.

The instruction sheet (2-pages) supplied with the main control board were simple to follow. I removed the cover in back, carefully unplugged all the cable connectors, unscrewed the green ground wire, and lightly pinched the four white mounting pins with my fingers to release the old board. I then snapped the new board onto the four white pins, plugged all the cables back in, attached the ground wire under the closest available screw, and closed it up. I did not need to cut any wires. Plugged the refrigerator in and it's been running fine all day. The whole job took less than 10 minutes.

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

The two parts came faster than expected, which was a pleasant surprise. All I had to do was open the box, wash the new parts and place them into the freezer. So easy!
