Our freezer section iced up. Took panel off to expose ice on back wall of freezer; when i dialed fridge and freezer controls to zero to defrost, freezer fan continued to run. I unplugged unit and defrosted. I have plugged back in and allowed freezer and fridge to cool. Water in container in freezer is frozen. Fridge temp is 41f. The fan runs continuously, which does not seem proper. Advice?
For model number GSL25QGPDBS
Hello Joe, thank you for contacting us. That sounds like it would be the temperature sensor. The sensor sends the temperature reading of the refrigerator towards the control board. If your refrigerator or freezer runs too long, is too warm, will not defrost, or has sections that are too cold, replacing this part is the solution. Hope this helps!

After power outage due to storm, fridge doesn't work. The lights work but the front panel doesn't light up and the fridge/freezer don't turn on/cool. I replaced the front control panel board but it still has the same issue. Will this motherboard fix the issue?

I have no display and nothing works but the light door switch
For model number PSS26GRB
Hi Kris, Sorry to hear the display is not working. It sounds like it may be the control board of the touchpad. To verify what part is causing the issue you can use an Ohms/Multi Meter to check the continuity of the parts. I hope this helps. Have a great day!

We are wondering if this would solve our problem. Our refrigerator works fine, but it has a clicking/snapping noise that isn't constant. It will sometimes click/snap, intermittently, for 2-3 hours......stop for a few hours....then start up again, for a few min or hours. There doesn't seem to be a pattern. Even though it isn't a loud sound, we have two little schnauzers that are terrified of it and it is making life very stressful for them & us. Do you have any idea what it might be?I appreciate your help. Thank-you.
For model number GSH25JSXBSS
Hi Bev, Thank you for the question. The Electronic Board is known to make a clicking noise when it is becoming defective and needs to be replaced. I recommend replacing the board. Good luck with dogs and the repair!

Freezer cools, fridge doesn’t. I replaced Master bored. Same problem persists. What could it be?
For model number PDS22MBSBCC
Hi Sherman, Thank you for the question. I suggest replacing the Temperature Sensor,Part Number: WR55X10025. Both the freezer and fridge side has its own sensor and may explain why one side works and the other does not.The sensor sends the temperature reading of the refrigerator towards the control board. Hope this helps!

After a power outage, the refrigerator runs constantly. I turn the thermostat down and it continue to run until I reach the zero setting.As soon as I turn the thermostat up, the refrigerator start running. The temperature in the refrigerator is cold. The freezer section works fine
For model number GDL20KCSABS
Hi Charles, Thank you for the question. Yes it is common when you have a power outage or serge the main board will need to be replaced, But his sounds like the Capacitor,this part helps the compressor kick on and off while maintaining a constant temperature to keep things frozen in your freezer.Hope this helps!

Board has been replaced by service person refrig still warm need a schematic of mother board part #wr55x10942 so i may find what is my problem
For model number GSL25JFTFBS
Hello Fred, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have a wiring diagram or schematic of the board. If the fridge is still warm, and the board has been replaced I would suggest checking the Temperature Sensor Part Number: WR55X10025, Evaporator Fan Motor Part Number: WR60X10185, as well as the Defrost Heater and Bracket Assembly Part Number: WR51X10055. I hope this helps!

The refrigerator dispenses ice cubes, nothing else in the dispensing unit works. I replaced the touch pad circuit board, but that was not it. When you push the other pads there is nothing, the cube button lights but the other controls don’t light. Could the main board be bad?
For model number GSH25KGMBBB
Hi Paul, Thank you for the question. Yes, if the board in the dispenser did not fix the issue, the next likley part is the control board on the back of the appliance. Good luck with the repair!

Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
The refrigerator made continous "whooing" sounds that increased and decreased in pitch. Sounded like a ghost. Would keep us up at night. Also noticed that the heater was not heating under the evaporator coils.
After checking the stories, the consensus of opinion was to change the mother board. I had a tremendous help from Tom Paone at quality@applianceeducator.com. He also told me to change the motherboard but to make sure that the coils were totally defrosted before starting up the refrigerator after changing the board.

Took off three nuts around the board at the back of the unit. Removed the input wires and you have to push in the plastic tabs holding the board in. Then just put the new board in place and push till the tabs click. Re-install the wires and put the cover back on.

Really simple task,

It is now a week since doing this and the unit is working perfectly. No soulds and good nights sleep. The ghost has moved on.

Our Ice Damper was warped, which let warm air into the freezer and caused frost to form. Also, our ice and water dispensers stopped working.
Swapping out the ice dispenser damper door was pretty easy- just used a combination of screwdrivers to remove the dispenser assembly, popped the old damper off, put the new damper on. Replacing the control board was only a bit more complicated- unplugged the fridge, removed the control board metal cover (beware the somewhat sharp edges), unhooked all the cables from the board, used needle-nose pliers to pinch each plastic spacer/fastener as to not damage them while removing the old board, mounted the new board where the old board was, and plugged in all the cables (they were all different enough from each other that I didn't have any trouble figuring out where they were supposed to connect). I now have my fridge plugged into a surge protector- hopefully that will protect this new board I've installed. Thanks a bunch,PartSelect.

Repeatedly stick in defrost, raising temps in fridge and freezer for hours at a time, some times for days. Repair tech was called out twice to look into this problem, but the temps returned to normal both times before he arrived, therefore, he never could diagnose the problem with a certainity as wh
The main board is easy to get to behind the access plate. You will find seven different wire harness plugs, six which are white, that are impossible to remove without breaking the retaining clips which hold them in place....but that's OK.....you are throwing away the old board anyway, so nothing lost. The plugs will snap back into each of their respective terminal locations without a problem. Be sure to treat the four white, plastic pins that hold the board in place delicately....you will not want to mess those little dudes up!

Ice dispenser quit working and kept making a clicking sound
All you have to do is replace the circuit board which is really easy. Still kinda mad because the fridge is less than 2 years old. If you hear the clicking noise its coming from the circuit board.

Our refrigerator stops delivering ice both crushed and cube. The ice bin was full. I first thought the delivery motor was bad and then the water dispenser in the door stopped delivery. Decided at that point it was either the door panel swith board, cable or the main circuit board on the back of t
After further diagnosis decided the main circuit board was the likely culprit. Ordered a new one from PartSelect. It came in 2 days and took less than 30 minutes to install. Unplugged the refrig. Removed the old board cover with a nut driver. Removed the wiring cables (note their location on the board) and also there were a couple of cable plugs on my refrig that were not not hooked to anything on the board. Snapped the old board out and the new board in. Reinstalled the cables and then the board cover. Plugged the refrig in and back in business. PartSelect is a great website! The speed of delivery and available information just saved me $500 to $600 from a appliance repair shop.

refrigerator/freezer defrosting completely for no reason
Unplugged refrigerator and used a screwdriver to remove access panel on rear of refrigerator to expose "mother board". Unplugged connectors (6 total) and using needle nose pliers released two retainers to remove mother board. Installed new mother board snapping it onto the two retainers and plugged the connectors onto the new mother board. Plugged refrigerator into outlet, refrigerator came back on, automatically reset it's temperature settings and has been working fine since. Total time, less than 15 minutes. Money saved, hundreds of dollars!

Ice maker wouldn't work and the fan was making a clicking noise.
First, I must say that I was told that the mother board might be the problem. I called my husband to tell him what I was told the problem might have been and how much the part was. A little expensive, but still cheaper than calling a repair man. He told me to order the less expensive part first to see if that fixed it. The fan motor. We hung up the phone and for kicks I scrolled down the page to see if it might give any more information on the part and what it controlled, etc. I don't usually read comments, but was amazed at the ones I read. The second comment on the page said that his refrigerator made a whooing sound like a ghost. Our Frig has done this since the day we bought it! He replaced the mother board and the "ghost" moved out! The third comment was that his refirg made a clicking noise and the ice maker doesn't work! I immediately called my husband back and told him I was ordering the part! It arrived the next day. So extremely easy to put in! I removed 3 screws from the cover, disconnected a couple of wires, a few plastic clips; pushed the new part on the clips rehooked the wires and put the cover back on. I bet it took less than 10 minutes! My husband thinks I'm a genius!! Thank you so much for all of your help!

Unit would not run.
I found if I would put pressure on one connector on the board the unit would come on. So the board had a short. I ordered it, it came in 24 hours and I installed it and problem was solved.

Icemaker would not dispense cubes or crushed ice
Cause: Failed relays on main circuit board. Fix: Main circuit board replacement: Unplugged refrigerator. Removed 10 screws securing main circuit board metal cover (located on back of refrigerator) using a nutdriver. Disconnected 7 multi-pin electrical connectors from the circuit-board by firmly pulling each connector from the circuitboard sockets using a needlenose plyers. Depressed the small locking prong on each of the 4 plastic circuit board mounting pegs while pulling the board off the mounting pegs.
Pressed new board in place over mounting pegs. Re-plugged in all connectors (no confusion because each connector has unique pin counts). Replaced all mounting cover bolts, making sure to pin green ground wire to last bolt. Plugged in refrigerator. Done.
Note: I determined the main circuit board was bad by removing the auger motor assembly from the freezer and testing the auger motor harness power pins. AC voltage should jump when ice demand lever is pushed (while pressing the internal door light off switch). If no voltage jump, then auger motor relays on main circuit board have failed, indicating board replacement is needed.
Another check would be connecting an extension cord to the auger motor terminals and plugging it in. Motor should run. If it does, then motor is good and main circuit board is bad. If it doesn’t then auger motor is bad and needs replacement.
