The Fridge & Freezer side were not getting cold. Also, the ice maker light would not work (not the bulb) and buttons wouldn't respond intermittently.

Unplugged the unit from the wall and pulled it out enough to gain to the panel on the rear of the appliance to the main control board. Even though it was not necessary, I took pics with my phone to be sure I would get it all reconnected back right. Removed all wires from the old control board being careful not pull wires from the connectors. Some were a bit stubborn to remove, but eventually they all relented and came off. Removed the old board from the retaining clips. After examination of the board, it definitely showed signs of an electrical short/burn on the back. Inserted new board onto the retaining clips. The new board was slightly different from the original and came with instructions that should not be ignored. Depending on the model of your appliance there may be wires to cut. I didn't cut the wire though, I just removed it from the clip and taped it. Reassembled all remaining connectors on the board and moved to the front of the freezer to replace the Defrost Thermostat and Temp Sensor. Removed all shelving and light cover to gain access to the screws needed to remove the panel covering the area needed. Located the thermostat and by the looks of it, it definitely needed replacing as well. Disconnected thermostat from the coil line it was clipped to. Cut the wires and reconnected the new thermostat. I don't know if it was necessary or not, but I went ahead and replaced the temp sensor that was also located near the thermostat. Put it all back together and plugged it in for the test. I like to say this corrected my issues, but I still had a problem. The freezer was working perfectly now, but the fridge side refused to get cold. I eventually fixed that problem as well by installing a defrost heater and a temp sensor on the fridge side.

I received the new board 6 days after making order. Very simple task. Unplug refrigerator. Removed 3 screws holding cover on back panel. Disconnected 4 wiring harness/connectors. Using needle nose pliers, I compressed the 4 plastic tabs that hold the board to the frame. I did one tab at a time and as I compressed the tab, I pulled the board away from the tab. I connected the harness/connectors to the new board before mounting on tabs. The new board had been updated and had 6 areas for connectors, just match the correct connectors to plugs, they only fit one way. Install cover plate, but remember to connect the new ground wire (green) to one of the cover mounting screws. Plug in unit and and give atleast 12 hours prior to adjusting the tempature controls.

Since my refrig is 18 yrs. old and I never had to replace it, took a little long to remove trim piece on the outside. After that repair went smoothly. I still have problem with water collecting inside on the bottom of the freezer, might have a leak somewhere. Ice maker is functioning correctly.

luckly i have a bit of experience in refrigeration im an hvac technician by trade. this repair was a bit tricky in that i did not know at first if it was a Temperature Sensor issue or the main control board. I had tested the defrost termination thermostat and the defrost heater and as i suspected they were ok. Next i wanted to test the thermistors (temp sensors) it is hard to find technical data on these fridges. I needed to test the thermistors resistance @ a certian temperature to ensure they were working properly but where do u get such data? I also wanted to know some information about the logic programmed into the board (i.e when do you initiate defrost etc. . .). I had no such luck so i figured since i tested the defrost heater and thermostat and they were ok and all of the evap fans and such were working i'd order a circuit board and new thermistors. Got the CORRECT PARTS from this site in 2 business days and my fridge is working great! changing the parts was really easy, figuring out which parts to change was the only difficult thing about this job.

I simply followed the video instructions and it was a breeze, so easy I couldn't believe it . The GE repairman where going to charge me approx. $265. 00 for this repair and another service person wanted to charge me $ 100.00 just to remove and replace these items that I purchased from you . The experience was great as well as the SAVINGS, Thanks again for your professional service. Also I did receive a defective part and this company sent this part back to me within 2 days , preventing any delays on the repair. Thanks, Blanhue

Gently pry out switch in door jam with screwdriver and pull both connectors off and put connectors on new switch then push switch back into the hole. Looked it up on the internet and video showed how to and also had link to new part, ordered and less than a week later the fridge is bright again. I have an older freezer also and it seems that they all use the same switches. Very Very easy

No Ice...

Super easy, had my 15 year old do it (with my supervision).
Followed very clear Instructions that come with the replacement...
But, he could not get to the plug location until he removed 4 screws holding the motor assembly that spins the ice in the drawer and moved it out of the way...
Followed the rest of the instructions...
Works like a charm.

iec maker discharge chute frosting over not allowing ice to dispence

Your video was very helpful but it addressed the model as having pull out racks, where as my freezer had pull out drawer baskets. This made removing the back panel very difficult. Secondly while I installed a new thermostat you should replace the temp.sensor as to avoid the difficult removal of the panel a second time if that proved to be defective also. Replaced thermostat and the problem of frosting over improved until the next day when the outdoor humidity increased the ice chute started to frost a little. I then replaced the ice door flapper and so far with the two replacements the the problem has been solved.
