I went out to the customers house and their refrigerator was not cooling in the freezer or refrigerator sections.
I pulled the refrigerator out from the wall and removed the rear lower access panel and the compressor was not running at all, but the condenser fan motor, that mounts next to the compressor, was running.
Then I checked for 120 volts AC at the two larger wires that go to the compressor invertor board and 120 volts AC was present and on the two smaller wires I was getting 5 volts DC, which means the compressor inverter was the bad part.
I then unplugged the refrigerator and I replaced the compressor inverter board and the compressor started running and it started to get cold inside the freezer and refrigerator sections.
Here’s the compressor inverter board for this model. You will see a video of how to replace it when you click the part link to the compressor inverter board: Compressor Inverter WR87X29409
Here’s the photo of it:

2008 GSS23WGTAWW GE Refrigerator: Not coming on at times. I went out and the customer said when it cycled off it would not come back on at times, and other times it would.
I ordered the motherboard and replaced it and it fixed it, I called the customer back the next day and he said it was working just like new again.
Here’s the motherboard(main control board) for this model:

I arrived at the customers house and the start button wouldn’t push in properly to make the washer start a cycle.
I replaced the control board and that fixed it! The start button is integrated into the control board.

I went out to see why this refrigerator wasn’t cooling. I found that the condenser fan motor, that’s located in the very back of the refrigerator, wasn’t running and blowing air. It had stopped running and I was getting 120 volts to it.
Also due to the condenser fan motor not running it overheated the compressor start relay and made that go bad too. So I replaced both parts and it worked great!

Over time, the water hoses that came with your new washing machine may leak or burst. It’s a good preventive maintenance practice to check these hoses from time to time for any sign of wear or weakness. Often there’s a small blister in the rubber of the hose, which could rupture. Most manufacturers recommend replacing the hoses every 5 years.
Note… If the hose ruptures, large quantities of water could gush from the hose. If it’s the hot water hose that ruptures, the gushing hot water may scald anyone nearby.
For more peace of mind, one alternative is to use high quality stainless steel fill hoses. In addition, we carry the black rubber hoses supplied by the manufacturer– go to our Shop For Parts section and enter your model number to locate the ones for your unit. We also offer universal washing machine hoses.
Because your washing machine is so heavy, when it’s not level, it can vibrate strongly during the spin cycle. If your washing machine is not perfectly level–with all four legs touching the floor–it can bang and rock back and forth, and even begin to “walk” across the room. This isn’t good for the machine and may damage anything near the machine.
Your washing machine has adjustable, front leveling legs with a lock nut. You adjust the leg to the proper height, then tighten the lock nut up against the body of the machine to keep the leg from rotating.
Some machines have adjustable leveling legs in the rear also, and you can adjust them in the same way. Keep the machine as close to the floor as possible–the lower it is, the less likely it is to vibrate.
Most machines, however, have “self-adjusting” rear legs. You set these legs by tilting the entire machine forward onto its front legs (with the rear legs 3 to 4 inches off the floor) and then setting the machine back down. The legs should adjust automatically. If they don’t, you may need to tilt the machine forward and rap on the rear legs with the handle of a hammer to loosen them–a procedure that’s easier to accomplish with a helper.
Your washer has either a painted steel or porcelain-coated steel cabinet. It’s perfectly safe to use a little dish detergent and a damp rag to clean all of its surfaces. If the surface is porcelain, you can even use a little non-abrasive cleanser for stubborn stains.
Most washing machines collect lint during the wash cycle and send it down the drain during the drain cycle.
If your machine is a Maytag, though, it may be different. Most Maytag washing machines collect lint in the center tube of the agitator. You need to lift out that tube and clean it periodically. Other machines have a lint filter near the top of the tub, which you need to slide out, clean off, and reinsert.
