I ordered 3 temperature Sensors Part#PS304103 and viewed the video. Got there, opened the frig. and it looked totally different and no place in any part of this frig. that took these sensors as viewed on the video. Totally baffled why these parts were listed for this frig. there was no place in this frig that would access for these parts. Serial # was HR443071.Maybe this model is out of date for these parts. Trying to find someone who can repair it. Any ideas???Purchased this GE in 2008. Model #is GSS25WSTFSS Thanks, for your help. JIM

Fridge was warming but freezer was cold

  • Customer: John from Methuen MA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

I first thought of the board because it seems to be the most common problem but after a process of elimination I found it to be the evaporator fan which was relatively easy to disassemble and re-install. I am not a repair man of any sorts but spending $45 is much better that buying a new fridge. All is working well and my wife is happy.JG

After reading some of the reviews. I bought and replaced the main circuit board. The parts came quickly and the job took very little time. Good time to remove all the panels on the back and clean the dust off everything. Refrig. is running great now! Easy fix! Thanks to all the help.

Ice dispnser worked intermitently. My diagnosis led me to the freezer door light switch. Switch operated the light but stopped the ice dispenser. After replacing the switch the dispenser operates every time now. problem solved.

Icemaker leaking water

  • Customer: Allen from Santa Fe NM
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I had to defrost the freezer to free the icemaker. After that the installation was plug and play with two small exceptions: 1) I had to file down the width of the left hand tine of the old stripper so that it would fit the new icemaker, and 2) the motor housing of the new icemaker was slightly wider than the old one. It fit, but just barely. But I'm back in the ice again, no dripping water, all is good.

Followed the video demo and would have been done sooner but for limited work space- narrow freezer compartment and the release tabs on the electrical plug. First home repair that the air was not blue and got done in under time allocated.

Freezer defrosting; Temp Controls inoperable; Clicking sounds; lights on. Unplugging and then plugging back in would be a temporary fix, then it would revert to defrosting. Ice and water dispensers inoperable.

Replacing the main control board was not difficult. When I received the order confirmation from partselect.com they included a link to their repairman video for the part replacement. Unplug; unscrew the panel; unplug the wired connections from the old control board; do use pliers to squeeze the corner clips that hold the board in place and remove old board. Slide new board over the clips; plug in all the connectors (they each have different number of pins so you can't confuse them); replace the back cover and plug the refrigerator back in. Very quiet now; temperature controls work; freezer works and as an added bonus, the ice and water dispenser is also back in operation. I had thought it was a separate issue, but lo and behold, replacing the main control board fixed everything. Thank you partselect!
