Every time there is a power outage, my refrigerator goes off for a couple days, but comes back on eventually. Last time I changed out the Compressor switch, the surge capacitor, and since the refrigerator was older and after reading that the fan should always operate when plugged in, I also changed the fan motor. Once again power went off last night and now the fridge is off. The interior lights work so I know there is power. I also did a resistance check on the compressor and that checked good. Without a drawing I cannot figure out what component would act in this way. I am leaning toward the motherboard. Could you please advise me on this?

The water and ice dispenser occasionally stop working. When the dispenser handle is depressed, the LED above, for the Water, Crushed or Cubed turns off and nothing is dispensed (no motor activity whatsoever, like a dead mother board). Pressing a couple of the temperate control buttons turns ALL the LEDS back on for 20 seconds or so and then the dispenser usually goes back to normal operating mode. Sometimes it takes a couple of times to get it to return functionality. Suspect it’s probably an issue with the main circuit board?

CAN THIS MAIN BOARD CAUSE THE ICE MAKER NOT TO WORK? I HAVE REPLACED THE ICE MAKER AND THE WATER SOLENOID VALVE IS WORKING PROPERLY AND WATER LINE IS NOT FROZEN, BUT STILL NO ICE.
For model number HSS22IFPACC
PartSelect logo
Hi James, Thank you for your question. If your ice maker is not making ice and the water lines are fine and you have already replaced the ice maker and the water inlet valve, then you will need to check the electronic control board, the micro switch and the dispenser door solenoid assembly. Once you have determined the part you need, please feel free to call customer service. We are open 7 days a week and anyone will be happy to assist you. We look forward to hearing from you!

The main control board part # is given as: WR55X10942C but GE has made many different revs under this part #. I am having trouble finding the correct board rev. The current board rev in it is: 200D6221g010. Will your board really work in this frig?

My fridge has a constant clicking sound and it cools both the freezer and the fridge but not as cold anymore. It has been two days now and it's been clicking every second. What could this be?
For model number gss22jepcww
PartSelect logo
Hi Lazaro, thank you for contacting us. According to our research, if the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise. We would recommend checking it, the part number is PS11763818. We hope this sorts out your problem!

My fridge and freezer will operate as normal. Then the whole unit will make loud humming and clicking noises. After that the temperatures on both the fridge and freezer will become far to warm. I try to clean the components in the back of the fridge and unplug for a few minutes. Sometimes that helps reset it. Does this mother board sound like it may correct my issue?
For model number PFS22SISBSS
PartSelect logo
Hi Casey, thank you for the question. If your refrigerator is making an extremely loud humming sound, the compressor kit, part number PS8768493, is usually the cause, and it might be time to repair or replace it. Before replacing the compressor, clean the fridge's condenser coils and fan to ensure built-up dirt and dust are not the sources of the issue. We hope this helps!
