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.

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.

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,

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.

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!

Very simple repair. Watched the installation video of the motherboard on PartSelect.com. and followed the steps. Took me longer to pull the refrigerator out away from the wall than it did to do the installation. Do pay attention to how you remove the plugs from the old motherboard so you plug them in correctly on the new one. We amateurs tend to over think our projects. Watch the video of the pro. Follow their instructions. Be very happy and satisfied with the results. And, remember, ALWAYS unplug your appliance. No shortcuts.

Clicking sound. Compressor tried to start with each click, but would not start. Temperature display not lit.

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.

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.

Pulled out the refrigerator, removed the bottom panel cover to expose motherboard panel. Removed mother board panel, followed instuctions on YouTube to replace the motherboard: I plugged the fridge in after the motherboard was installed and the compressor fired up and everything was working again.

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.
