    Default GE PSCS5RGXAFSS compressor not starting

    Model Number: PSCS5RGXAFSS
    Brand: GE
    Age: 1-5 years

    The compressor is not starting, replaced the board that plugs into the compressor with a working board, still not starting.* The strange thing is the digital display in front can toggle between "actual temp" and "set temp".* I set the "set temp" at 0 and 40, but the "actual temp" says "Freezer temp 0 degrees, refrigerator temp 65 degrees".* The fridge temp is 65 by my thermometer (also my garage's ambient temp), but the freezer is 65 too, not 0.*

    If both of those problems (compressor not starting, and "actual temp" reading inaccurately) are related, what would cause it?

    Oh, I ohmed and checked the compressor electrically, it is all fine.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Sounds like your motherboard is the culprit.

    Rick explains how to test to see if the inverter is the problem: FIXED GE Profile French Door Refrigerator Freezer Not working properly

    You will need a multimeter to do testing.

    Here's the motherboard for your model:
