Had friend assist in pulling fridge out from it's area so that I could access back. Unplugged unit. For the bottom freezer units (mine) the compartment containing the main control board is middle of the fridge and on the left. Took off the protective metal plate and then followed the video demonstrating the repair. One other discrepancy between the video and the instructions that came with the new main control board, is that the instructions suggested locating and cutting some other green wire to the compressor unit. I chose not to do that, as the unit was otherwise working fine as is prior to my main control board going south.

I followed instructions in your video. at the beggining I hesitated because the original card had two fewer ports than the new one. but after a call to a Partselect representative I confirm that I had the right card. after that it was a matter of connet wires to the ports. 1 week later my refrigerator is running smooth. Thaks a to Partselect I have saved a bunch of money.
removed cover from rear of refrigerator. disconnect mother board connections. Unplug first, used needle nose pliers to squeeze plastic tabs holding on motherboard and replaced old with new and plugged back in connections. Plug back in refrigerator and done.
I wouldn't have had a clue without your video. After the part was delivered, which was only in two days, I watched the video. The man explained everything perfectly, making our "fix" a breeze. It was great, I stood over my husband's shoulder, while he sat on the floor and told him what to do step by step. It couldn't have been easier. You guys are awesome!
Found out via searches that the most likely failed part was the Main Control Board. A simple repair with basic tools and a HUGE savings. Thanks to everyone here for the posts.PS - on my particular GE model PFS22SISBSS there was no need to cut any wires as per the instructions because the wires did not exist on this unit.
Removed circuit board cover, unplugged lLeads, rePlaced board, leads and cover. DoneAlso watch the video. Super simple
I started by un-plugging the power cord. Then I removed the back panel and swapped the boards. Then I had to remove everything from the freezer side to get access to the evaporator fan motor and the defrost thermostat. All things considered I saved a lot of money by doing the repair myself. I'm so glad I found partselect.com
The first and most important step was to diagnose the problem. To do this I found the Parts Select website and the part I thought was the problem. The previous repairs stories helped me to pin point the problem. The mother board came within a couple of days. All I had to do was take the back plate/guard off, unplug the connectors in the back, unclip the mother board and then do the reverse over again. The only problem was the ground wire. I had to take the one off that came with the part and switch it out with the old one, because it would not connect to my refrigerator. This was fairly simple and in about 30 min. I was done and had our refrigerator back. Luckily we had another in the garage as a back up so we didn't loose any food.Thanks Parts Select
Pull fridge out. Pull the little 6 by 12 silver plate off on the back middle bottom of fridge. Disconnect the quick connects . Remove from 4 plastic pins. Them reassemble.
Unplug Fridge unscrew rear compartment where main board was located, unfastened old board.Unplug one wire harness from the old board and fit on the new board, repeat until the new board was wired, secured new main board to fridge. ****Manually defrost freezer before restarting. **** WAY LESS THAN THE PRICE OF A REPAIR VISIT.
I took the 3 screws off the cover that is in the back of the appliance, unpluged the plugs that attached to the circuit board pressed the 4 plastic pins that held the old board. Then I snapped the new board in place and pluged the plugs back into the new board. They will only go on one way so you cannot get the plug in the wrong place, job done appliance works fine. Thanks
I found this failure at midnight, was able to determine loss of voltage at J2 Pin 3 to 4, causing the fan failure. Jumpering with a staple from Pin 5 to 4 allowed the evap fan to run from the condensor fan supply for the few days waiting for the part. Not pretty, but it saved the food. Running like that forced the evap fan to high speed, so I had to set the thermostats lower (higher temp)1. To un-mount the board, use needle nose to gently squeeze plastic bayonets one at a time and lift that corner clear. 2. Mark each connector J1, J3, J4, J2, J5 to match the mark on the old board3. Gently work each connector off, replace board, and re-land each connector. The new board will have a ground wire. Just trap the lug under the upper left cover plate screw..
the new board was more complicated than the old, however the install instructions seem to have anticipated this. It works for mow. thanks for inquiring'
I easily removed the screws and then removed the board and took a picture so I would remember how to re-connect it. It was really easy and now my refrigerator is working great. If I can do it anyone can do it. My husband was amazed that I did it all by myself.
First, I removed the four screws holding the auger motor and solenoid in place. After testing the solenoid as good I replaced it and did more research. I was having several symptoms so was unsure which part or parts were bad. I spent $50 on a service call and got the diagnosis of a bad main board. I ordered the part and got it two days later. After removing the several screws from the rear panel it was so easy to remove and replace the board. Plugged it back in and it worked perfectly.
