The main control board is situated at the rear of the freezer bottom right hand side there are about 12 screws holding the cover in place a nut driver is perfect to speed up removal of this cover. At this stage you can see several plugs on the board remove as many of these as you can with the board still place however there are couple which cannot be removed with the board in place be careful not to pull on the wires when removing the pugs(don't worry about where they go as they are all different and will only go in one location) The main board is held in place by four nylon stand off posts with barb retainer clips to remove these you must squeeze the barb in with some pliers and lift the board at the same time I did the two at one end then the two at the other end once you have removed the board remove the remaining plugs the power in and the plug on the left hand edge of the board. The new board I received was slightly different to mine as it can be used on several models of freezers be sure to read the instruction that come with the new board to ensure you remove or install links as stated in the installation notes. Again you cannot get the plugs in the wrong place as they are different I was able to install most of the plugs prior to fitting the board on the stand off posts at this point care must taken to ensure all of the bunches cables are going to be clear of the cover this was most time consuming as there is a lot of extra wire, once this was completed I replaced the cover with a nut driver and tested the freezer with a thermometer placed in the freezer compartment after about 30 minutes the temperature started dropping (the compressor sounded different more powerful!! all done.

Refrigerator stopped getting cold.

I had called "Affordable Appliance" to send a repairman to assess our problem. A horrible man - rude, dirty, taciturn - came to our house. He took the cover off of the panel on the back of the fridge. He determined that the master control board had to be replaced. He demanded $630.00 to replace that part. I said "no thanks" and sent him on his way. I then called Part Select and ordered that same part. It cost $155.00 + shipping & handling. It arrived the very next day and I installed it in very few minutes and it is working perfectly. The gentleman who answered the phone at Part Select could not have been more helpful. He was wonderful.

Heard a buzzing noise, smelled burnt electrical, unit stopped running but had internal lights. No temp. control functions.

Looked for source of burnt electrical smell. Strong odor from where circuit board is located. Removed board and found black burn area on back side of board. Ordered new circuit board and crossed my fingers nothing else was wrong. Replaced and works like a champ. $150 repair beats $2000 replacement every time. Wife not so thrilled. Was hoping for new refrigerator.

All refrigerator functions stopped working except for the interior lights. No cooling or freezing, front control panel lights were off, no water was dispensed, ice maker not producing ice, etc.

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.

Upon receiving the original GE part from Part Select, I read the installation instruction and specific bulletins with in the document then proceeded with removing & replacing the main electric control board. Being an original GE part save a lot of time due to all wiring coupling to board was identical to original so it was simple as unplugging several wire coupling and plugging in to new board. This was extremely easy and I finished in 15 minutes which saved me at least $500 compared to the in home repair service or having to buy a $1500 new refrigerator.

First we googled the GE site and entered in our model number and that is where we found out what the problem may be. We ordered the part, which we were amazed that it came so quickly. It was installed in less than 5 monutes and "boom" problem solved and my fridge is working again with no clicking sound.

I changed the defrost thermostat and the evaporator thermistor and the main control board I didnt change the defrost heater because I tested it for continuity and it did have continuity, the freshfood section and freezer section thermistors had 16.3 k ohms + - 5 % so I didnt change those, and the problem got worst now the freezer section wont cool under 40 degrees and the fresh food section is about 50 - 60 degrees I might as well put the old board on at least the freezer was actualy freezing for a week or so, before it needed defrosting.
