    Angry GSS22IFRFBB Electrical issues with GE side by side

    Model Number: GSS22IFRFBB
    Brand: GE
    Age: 6-10 years

    Last Saturday morning my power apparently went out, the clocks flashing on my appliances. About mid morning I went into the freezer and found that it was warmer than it should be upon further investigation i found that the lights on the dispenser were out and not working. pulled the temp control housing and found the wiring diagram. checked power at the test point at top of the freezer door and found no power. So i went after the circuit board and found it had shorted against the housing and blew a few compactors and the board fuse.

    I ordered a new board with the same part number on the original and installed it today. I plugged in the fridge and now I have power at the front panel but the compressor and fan still does not work. I hear a clicking on one of the big relays on the board, feel the compressor go on and off in a second and the fan jsut does a 1/8 turn on every other click.

    I need help here fixing this or has my 5 year old fridge bought the farm?

    Okay now that i was brave enough to leave the fridge plug in it started to run and cool but when i use the water and ice the fridge now stops cooling and the LEDs fade. I disconnected the wires at the top of the door and it started cooling again. I will leave it now to see what happens. starting to think the new board is bad now. we'll see tomorrow

    Hi,

    Please double check your model#, i can't pull-up anything on that one.

    You replaced the motherboard in the back of it?

    Possibly the dispenser board got fried as well.

    Yes, it does sound like the motherboard you got is bad, where did you buy it at?

    Here's the motherboard for your model:
    Manufacturer part number WR55X10942P

    Default Need Help, PLEASE!

    I have GE side-to-side, serial #ZG236484 and a model# GSH25SGRESS!
    This unit is just turn 6 years old and start giving us some problems with do dispensing water (again!) and a couple days ago it stopped making Ice also. Two years ago we had similar water issue and repair people installed water line heater...

    Today the clicking noise started and when i open fridge door i see lights and thermometer displays flickering simultaneously! This sound is coming up from the the control board...

    Do i keep fridge plugged in? I am afraid it would blow up in the middle of the night!

    I have found that link from another post: Control Board WR55X10942P

    Is that a correct part for my unit also?
    How difficult it is to replace that board?

    Would really appreciate your advice!
    PLEASE!

    Yes, thats the correct motherboard for your model, go ahead and order it, the video to access/replace it is in the part link.

    It would be best to unplug the refrigerator till the new motherboard arrives. Go to your local grocery store and buy about 10-15 pounds of dry ice to put in it to keep everything cold.

    Jake!
    My fridge stop making that clicking noise when i set temperatures to "0" in both freezer and fridge part... Is this equivalent to unplugging unit from the wall? Means it would warm up as fast?
    Thanks again.
